Get ready for December 5th: Sinterklaas!

In the Netherlands we celebrate Sinterklaas on the 5th of December. Get into the spirit with this free download game for the little ones. Designed by StudioFormo for MoodKids website. It's in Dutch but if you want to play all you need to do is follow these instructions:

Print double sets of these pages (download here) on thick paper. You each get one sheet with the houses to play with. Don't let the other one see your sheet during the game. Cut out all the figures from the other sheet.

Following a little story you make up yourself... you each have to place the cut outs in the correct place. For instance... In the red house lives only one person but he has been very nice and receives three gifts. The house with two doors gets five presents. On the roof of the brown house you can find two little helpers. After the story you compare your sheets.

Have you heard about IXXI?

This is something I have to share with you all as I love Advent calenders and this one is TOO CUTE! It's by a Dutch company named IXXI and they have 3 Christmas specials this year. Besides these you can also chose to create your own with a collage of your own pictures, a nice blow up or choose from their wide collection of stock images.
It's a flexible design with little square images that you attach with a little X-shaped system. So you can also grow your IXXI over time.

Increadably adorable and very desirable

I don't know how to crochet. This was fine cause I did know how to knit, embroider and sew and where would I find the time to also crochet. But now that I see this little serie of images on House of Pictures I wish I did know how to crochet. This must be so nice for a little girl to play with. Change clothes, play with doll and bear or take a little nap on the sofa. I think I must meet up with crochet queen Yvonne for a little workshop.

WARNING: Keep an eye on your kids!

I'm over the moon happy with this new print by One must dash, a creative print company by Anneli and Anki. Like it says on their website 'Two girls in a hurry making decorative things twinkly-eyed'. Make sure you check out their website for more prints, postcards and tea towels.
And soon, very soon we'll have a nice give away of one of their prints on our Lille Lykke interior blog.

Clever decorating by Weekdaycarnival

Those who read my Lille Lykke blog know I'm a big fan of Weekdaycarnival. She always has great clean and crisp decorations with fun little additions. These are some pictures she has posted of an update on her daughters room. I absolutely love the idea of cutting your own shapes out of honeycomb balls. These diamond shaped ones are much more 'today'.

Some room inspiration

These are some really fun kidsrooms with lots of personality. It shows that you'll get great results if you go just a little bit further than the standard furniture and some decorations. Found on the Swedish Family LIVING website.

Good manner flash cards

By using Pinterest and Instagram I keep finding these new online treasures. Like these 'Good manner flash cards' you can buy at Loopz (an Etsy shop). What a cute idea to give your child a compliment or a little 'pay attention to this' motivation.

Fine little blanket

There are many ways to promote your products but nothing beats the good old 'word of mouth' method. Only these days it more or less 'from screen to screen'. On Instagram there is a very cute blanket by Fine Little Day that has caught my eye. Seen on the feed of both A Merry Mishap and A piece of cake 82. Two ladies who live in different parts of the world but have very similar style and way of capturing this in images.

Decorating cookies

I'm a fan of.... Sweet Paul... decorating cookies.... eating sweets. So when this all comes together I get very exited. Love the flip flops and the orange popsicle. This is from the online Summer 2012 magazine. Looking for more cookie decorating ideas than check out our Food inspiration board on Pinterest.

Show your pictures

Kids love to look at pictures. And with our digital cameras these days we don't often make prints anymore. But done this way like seen on the Dosfamily blog I think it's really cute. Specially since there are also copies of old pictures used. And clever find, they're laminated and taped to tiles so you don't have to drill holes for a frame.

How cute is this birthday cake!

First of all I have to give my compliments to the mom baking this cake for her daughters birthday. I totally love the look of the rainbow cake and think the baking must take a lot of patience. But than.... will you look at this frosting layer. What an amazing idea to have your kid decorate their own birthday cake. I totally, absolutely, enormously LOVE IT! So Rosie from the Sweetapolita blog KUDOS to you! Go to her site to find links for the recipe.

You should really check this one out!


New discovery. I love Instragram as you get to peak into other peoples life and inspiration. That's also how I learned about Corby Tindersticks. Love their shirts with great detailed illustrations and applications of buttons and emboidery. And their felt little posters. Unfortunately this grey one is sold out otherwise it would be on our walls I can asure you! And the quircky dolls are also Corby Tindersticks designs. And the good news is that Rotterdam based webshop Shak-Shuka (my IG source) will stock some of their collection in the near future.

Sometimes you just don't want to wait

Sometimes you come across a new collection online and you just can't fait for it to hit the stores. I get that feeling with this new SIRKUS collection by Norwegian brand Blafre. In a collaboration with Cecilie Ellefsen their products got some really nice new prints. It will even be hard to make a choice. Probably the rond travelling circus container, the small strong man box and I also very much like the bear print. Like I said.... too many nice things! See more images on Rafens.

Every girls dream

It must be a little girls dream to own so many pattycoat skirts. I also think her bedroom is styled adorable. What I really like is the wooden screen. Think about all the 'junk' you can hind behind a nice wall like that. The wallpaper is by Ferm LIVING, the poster by Little Studio. The image comes from Family Living in Sweden.

Whihoee, it's time for a kids collection

Keep your eyes open for the coming Autumn season of H&M as they're starting a kids range in their HOME collection. And how great are these log items (storage bin and pillow) and the bear and fox products.  The little baskets on the floor in the first picture, the bedding and that orange towel are going home with me! See more of the next season preview on Hus och Hem.

You can always expect something creative from the Weekdaycarnival blog from Finland. Just like this little playhouse a.k.a. playmat that you can just zip together. She used the fabric from Finlayson. And if you love the bunkbed... It's Aalto + Aalto and the great TIGER poster is by Ingela P Arrhenius. You can buy this at one of our sponsors.

Making a kids lunch FUN!

Is your kid a bit of a troubled eater? Make his food fun and he or she'll be more likely to go for it. Like with these bento boxes. It does mean a bit of effort from your side but aren't these boxes like little food gifts. These come from the website Another Lunch with many great examples. I'm also a bit of a fan of the bento boxes by Dutch Larienet. You can find some of their examples on facebook. My favourite from their collection is this one.
