{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2018} Turn the tables this Christmas

I am one of those people who is creatively challenged. Don’t get me wrong I like all the arts and craft I am just horrible at it! Now, the same CANNOT be said for Louise Blencowe! 

The owner of Turning Tables Louise has this incredibly amazing ability to create and restore items to their former glory. 

What started about three years ago when Louise was creating some pieces for her own home has quickly turned into a beautiful little business. 

Turning Tables transforms furniture and furnishings, by restoring, painting and repurposing in order to bring them back to life. Louise even does custom pieces and items on commission.

I think what is lovely is that Turning Tables started from Louise’s love for practical hands on work and artistic creativity and after encouragement from her family and friends turned into a business!

Louise will happily help create that something super special for your home. She is flexible with techniques and different styles so can find that perfect something that is different from what anyone else has!

If you need something new to love in your home then contact Turning Tables today:

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2016} Give a little bit of Glitz this year

This product is the EXACT reason I started this blog, it’s local, it’s brilliant and I didn’t know it existed until now.

Little Glitz by Amanda is located in Blayney and she offers custom cross stitch portraits, wall hangings and letters. 15354316_1799094906975396_1227810246_o

Amanda has been cross-stitching since she was young and it was a skill taught to her by her mother. How fantastic is that?

This is honestly the best product I have seen in a long time, what a brilliant way to capture your family and what a fabulous gift this would make. You could buy it as a wedding gift  and then buy another one with the couple and added children later! I love this idea! Imagine a whole couple’s history celebrated by cross stitch.

Little Glitz by Amanda offers simply stunning items and I hope in the not to distant future to have one of her beautiful creations hanging in my home.

If there is one business that you need to get out and support after this year’s Christmas prizeapolooza let it be this one.

{The Nest Loves} Lulu & Milly are all things nice

There has been a recent resurgance in bow ties. No, I am not talking wrapped begrudgingly around your hubby’s neck to a wedding kinda bow, but the more petite, delicate, bloody stinkin’ cute variety.

Lulu and Milly offer the most adorable little bow beanies we did ever see!beanie

What we love is that the beanie part is super duper practical for tiny little heads and the bow adds a nice girly detail!

They also have gorgeous headbands that will add to any outfit!
