The Christmas Table

The Christmas Table THE CHRISTMAS TABLE Thats it, 2016 Christmas Dinner done and dusted.  The weather was less than perfect but in the end does it matter?  A time for togetherness and belonging, family, food and fun. My son is off to Norway to study in a few days time and so my theme this year? Norwegian Peaks and Mountain Flowers (okay, I picked them on the roadside in my community but still…) The little mountain peaks are wooden Christmas Tree Decorations

Styling 101 | Christmas

How to style your home for christmas in monochrome MY LITTLE MONOCHROME CHRISTMAS Despite the fact I have no littlies in the house I still feel the need to count down the sleeps to Christmas.  I’m not sure why that is, perhaps habit.  Advent calenders with a daily chocolate were such a treat as a child, but with two sisters it always seem an age to get to my turn! When my son was little we had all sorts of different ways of counting down, from the

Christmas Wish List

Christmas Wish List CHRISTMAS WISH LIST A Christmas Wish List?  We all have one, right?  Well, no, maybe not! While we are busy juggling everything to do with Christmas, suddenly were asked by our nearest and dearest, yes asked; “What would you like for Christmas?”  “Well, um, let me see… I cant think of anything right now… because I am too busy thinking of what everyone else wants!” Well this year I am getting it in print so when someone asks

Feelin’ hot hot hot

water8 FEELIN’ HOT HOT HOT We are having an unbelievable summer here in NZ; temperatures are souring and while loving the continuous clear days I am beginning to wish it would cool down a little – NO!  I hear you say?  Well I suppose you are right we need to take it while we can; our weather is so unpredictable we could be wishing our way to an early winter! So how to cool down?  Keep hydrated, drink WATER, H20, AQUA!  Whatever you call

The Christmas Table

Christmas table setting Every year Christmas at My Little House involves a new table setting.  The family arrive and the first thing they do is check out the theme, this involves a name place that they may take home as a memento of the evening.  This year I didn’t host the event, but my sister did a wonderful job keeping up the tradition.  Of course I couldn’t let a year go by without decorating my own Christmas table so on boxing

Christmas at My Little House

christmasclassical We all have different things that invoke memories of Christmas, some are from our childhood and some from the power of advertising.  These memories spark good feelings as well as little to do lists in your head.  Heres a few from My Little House..

There are 24 different little houses and 3 cars to build.  It was easy to construct but a little time consuming, so if you are in a hurry leave it for another day.  The packaging says suitable for ages 4 + but the ex-Preschool teacher, combined with

Fairy lights always make you smile don’t they?  Its such a dreary day here in Auckland I thought I’d have a rummage and get some going around my little house to brighten it up, after all its nearly Christmas… right?! You can get your copper or white fairy lights over at Collected.  I have both colours in plug in and battery operated; battery operated are great for those little spaces where you don’t have a plug but they

Red Red Wine

On my Colour Wheel journey so far I’ve covered Black and White, Green, Blue and Yellow.  So, maybe a little red to spice up your life? I’m not sure I can promise anything but red is the colour of energy and action, passion and desire, though I have to admit unless its Christmas the only time red features in my little house is in my wine glass!  Its a dominant colour and too much of it can cause us to
