A Poster A Day - Advent Calendar by JUNIQE

  Ok, so I am mentioning the C word today, but as I’m combining Art and an Advent Calendar, I’m sure you’ll forgive me.  My excuse? The latter most definitely has to be addressed before 1st December AND I’ve not written a post on art before. My latest discovery is JUNIQE’s brilliant A Poster A Day Advent Calendar. It’s already hit my list of wants and needs for the home. And the I.E. Hubs is ecstatic that I’ve added it to said special list.…

Bed In A Box - Space Saving Saviour By Living It Up

Having partied at the Amara Blog Awards on Wednesday night, my thoughts have to turned to future festivities that are just around the corner. And by festivities, I do mean Christmas!!

The Alternative Kitchen

  I have to say the I.E. kitchen is the most used space in our home which has resulted in it looking a little tired and battered around the edges. From time to time I get to thinking about how, if we could afford to (it’s on the large size so would cost a fortune), I’d change how it looks. Having opted for a traditional set up of wall cupboards and base units ten years ago, I wish we could transform…
