Super Prints!

If you are looking for some fun wall art for your nursery or child’s room, but are working on a budget then you absolutely must check out the range by May and Belle!

How cool are these new super hero themed prints?! Better yet they also cost a super price of $27! Say whaaat? Yay!





Or if your more the pooch lover you can’t go past these too cute for words dachshund prints by Lisa Bengtsson available in Australia through Norsu Interiors. Twelve variations of pooch perfection right there to choose from and each print is just $25! Ker-Ching!



Flower Power

Just thought I’d share with you this adorable flower-pot lamp I just brought for my daughter for her 3rd birthday. Pretty sure they are the cutest night lights I’ve ever seen for a girl!

Available wholesale through Missi Missi, the lamp arrives as a flat pack. The flower and pot are made from polypropylene which is thin sheets of strong plastic. I found the lamp pretty easy to assemble, the sheets fold and clip into each other to form the shape of the flower, sometimes this required a little patience and gentle persuasion though! I may have sworn a couple of times 😉 But it was totally worth it!

Once assembled, the lamp requires a small bulb (E14 25W) and will emit a soft glow perfect for reading bedtime stories! Do you love them too?

















Cool for Kids!

Last night good old social media introduced me to not one, but two amazing new labels whose products will change your child’s room from drab to totally fab!

First up is the very cute bed linen by Queensland based company In Bed With Fred!

There are four modern designs available in the quilts all of which are reversible and cost $119 with matching pillow cases. Team your quilt with one of the two sheet set designs which cost $99 and consist of a flat sheet, fitted sheet and matching pillow case.

The complete range is available for pre-order now for a late May delivery date, yay!





Secondly are these super fun wall decals by NZ company One Hundred Percent Heart!

I freakin’ love these! I think I need bats for my boy and clouds for my little girl. Arrgghhhh the whole range is amazing, you need to check these out asap and at only $39.90 for a pack of 38 individual stickers, I think this is THE best way to make over your kids room on a budget and not have it look… well…. budget!

Available to purchase in Australia through Down That Little Lane.








Ready Mr Music

I think wooden toys are so magical, add in moving parts and a music box and they remind me of something you would expect to find in Santa’s workshop! They can fascinate little kids for hours and are a beautiful heirloom that will stand the test of time.

So today I bring you these beautiful wooden music boxes made by Jean Card in Taiwan. They have a huge range of cute wooden music boxes, check out the videos below to see how they are made and some of the range that are available. The New York, London’s Big Ben and Mountain Railroad Pass music boxes can be purchased through Aussie online store Cool Things for $74.95 each.

Perhaps an idea for the “Mums to Be” this Mothers Day?










Happy Easter!

Hello all!

Well it is time to indulge in some continuous chocolate eating so Hermit will be taking a wee break over Easter to deal with the impending food comas and hypo toddlers! Wishing you all a safe and happy Easter and we will see you back here in a couple of weeks.

Taking inspiration from the Easter bunny we leave you with this particularly Eastery (not sure that is even a word, but you get my gist) note. I bring you the adorable, undeniable cuteness of Miffy in lamp form. Isn’t she the best?! Created by Mr Maria, Miffy is available in three forms, seated in XL or small and floating on a cloud. To double the cute factor you could also purchase her dog Snuffy! My little girl would adore these!









The Bedroom Society

Often on the blog I feature hand-made items of beautiful quality but generally this comes with a hefty price tag, this is due to the time needed to create items by hand compared to commercially made goods pumped out of machines. I know price can be a sticking point with many of us and that many items I feature will require a wee bit of saving for before they can become a treasured addition to your home.

So today I am very happy to share with you some beautiful pillowcases from new Aussie label The Bedroom Society that are not only screen printed by hand but also very affordable. Check out the super cute prints and patterns that Lauren has created in her debut range of pillow cases, LOVE!!Watermelons, pineapples, stripes, polka dots and chevron, this range has little something to please all ages.

The perfect addition to your basic plain colour sheet sheets and doona covers, The Bedroom Society pillow cases are a fun way to brighten up your bedroom with the latest of trends without spending a fortune. A set of two cotton pillow cases will set you back a mere $49 and are available to purchase through I Love Linen.

The watermelons have stolen my heart, whats your fave?
