This week’s #romancingthehome challenge has to be one of my favourites yet: holiday or family traditions! Now, I could lie to you and tell you that ever year, we put the tree up together on this day, we bake cookies on that day and we attend carols by candlelight the next day. But, as I… Read More A Christmas Tradition: Baking and decorating cookies
This week’s #romancingthehome challenge was decorating for the holidays. Now, I love Christmas (even though it is summer time for us) and I love Christmas decor. I can’t get enough of it. Drives my husband nuts 😂. He should be grateful that our major retailers seem to be rather lacking in that department, because I… Read More Decorating for the Holidays – Kids bedroom Christmas decor
This week’s challenge for #romancingthehome is a Christmas wreath. I love wreaths, I think that they are so pretty! They add beautiful colour and texture to a space. The problem is that here in South Africa, there are very few wreaths to be found. And the ones that can be found are usually way too… Read More DIY: An easy Christmas wreath

This week’s challenge or theme for #romancingthehome was a trip to the market. In case you didn’t realise it from my Kamers post, I love markets. The vibe, the produce, the local makers, the live music… there aren’t many better ways to spend a day off! Luckily for us, Cape Town and surrounds has so… Read More Romancing the home: A trip to market
This week’s #romancingthehome challenge is simply “roses”. I really thought that this would be easy for me. But it wasn’t. Maybe because things have been hectic and I didn’t plan properly. Maybe because the only roses I could find were starting to brown and, to top that, were really expensive. Or maybe, just maybe, its… Read More Romancing the Home: Roses and a trip down memory lane…
