fun stuff : santa's village

posted on: Wednesday, December 22, 2010


The Baby Space toddler (soon to be preschooler! It's his last day in the toddler room at day care today -- but I digress) loves Santa. He was quite excited when he spotted these kitsch vintage snaps of Santa's Villages.


Personally I've been loving gingerbread houses this year...


This is a snap of Santa's Village Gingerbread House Bakery. Do you suppose one could get a builder to agree to make a regular house roof look like gooey pink icing?


Santa's Doll Shop. So much vintagey toy goodness.


So this is where the Villages resided once upon a time. What a truly awesome little map. Be still my vintage-typography-loving heart.

Do you have any cute old Santa/Christmas pics/paraphernalia that you like to reminisce over?

Baby Kick's room features a soothing combination of timber and ivory tones punctuated by delicate bird decals from Mae.

Serene and practical with a nod to the wondrous state of infancy. Mum, Danielle de Lange of Le Souk who blogs at the style files applied her impeccable personal taste to create a harmonious attic space.

fun stuff : make a gingerbread house

posted on: Friday, December 10, 2010


This weekend we're making our first gingerbread house ever (well, putting together a kit). The Baby Space toddler and teen's faces when I showed them the cute kit box was priceless. Huge eyes and happy smiles. Hmm. Perhaps I need to 'bake' with them more often! So okay, it won't be as fancy as some of these lovely creations...


but I think they'll totally love drizzling on sugary icing and arranging mints and rainbow drops. I nabbed the gingerbread house kit from our local Coles supermarket for $14.95 AUD but if you're feeling industrious you might like this fun gingerbread house recipe.


Do you have any delicious Christmas kit making/baking planned?

Have a lovely weekend!

Four-year-old Jessica's bedroom is picture-book pretty. Her favourite thing? The delicate pink mobile her mum made just for her.

Sweet and neat with a generous splash of candy pink. Talented Sydney Mum, Dianne Fisher of Little Fish Creations, created a tailored look with a surprising mix of new, vintage and handmade items.
