Bookshelf ideas for the kidsroom

kids bookshelf ideas
via

Kids books are the best, aren’t they? I mean I love books in general and can hardly pass a book store but the illustrations and the creativity that come with kids books are so inspiring.

We have many books for the kids and we love to choose books when we go ‘home’ – to Germany or France – and want to bring back books in ‘our’ languages. These moments usually take a good amount of time but especially in Germany book stores are real lifestyle shops these days and have something for everyone. But back to the topic.

With four kids, a couple of languages and lots of book lovers the book shelf is busy. And I always like to use some of the extra beautiful ones as decoration as well. Do you do the same?

That is why I went out looking for some inspiration on how to display the kids’ books best.

Above is a great idea. A shelving system made out of crates. You can find those at your local hardware store. Just make sure to get the treated ones so no risks of splints.

A few things … {Friday List}

main sauvage

Cabin fever has hit here. Really hard! It’s been a little over 3 weeks with my cast. And even so I can walk without the crutches I cannot go really far. Weather has been bad too. And all this sitting and starring at the screen is driving me crazy.

In a bit I am off to a lunch with a friend {picking me up, I am so lucky} and this week end I will just need to stretch my capabilities and go out. Crossing fingers the weather is with me…

But stop with the whining now and lets have a look at this week’s Friday List! Full of inspiration – kids fashion, kids rooms, news from our favourite shops and brands…

Gifts for Tweens {ideas 2016}

Gifts for Teens

Gifts for Tweens

– Romy is 9 1/2 now and I can see that her interests and taste are changing. This time before they become teenagers. This time where they are not children anymore… too old for toys and too young for boys… or at least not interested at all in our case.
And I love this. I love the talks we have now. Her curiosity and personality that takes more and more shape.

When your kids were small / below eight you were usually confronted with many shops, things, toys, accessories and more. Probably more than one can need and digest. And then the overwhelming kids world starts to fade. There is less and there is a little gap for these cute 9-12 years old. But there are great things!

Here is my list of great gift ideas that I would buy without a doubt for my own tween.

The last one in November {Friday list}

Advent Calendar DIY
Advent Calendar {DIY idea} found on VT Wonen.

Can you believe that we will light the first Advent candle this Sunday? The year is nearly over… I am not ready yet. Are you?

I promised the kids that we will get the Christmas boxes upstairs and start with some decorating. We have a Christmas coloring poster in the kitchen and the kids add a little sparkle every day.

Do you have all the gifts? Advent calendars ready? Decoration up or maybe even a tree in the house already?

… but right now I want you to make a cup of tea, take a little cookie if you want to and read on. I have some lovely things in this Friday list like the wonderful Advent Calendar on the first picture. Maybe an idea in case you have no plans for the upcoming week end {… yah, I know… very unlikely}:
