Working together

Do you fancy collaborating with me?

I recently ran my first Giveaway on my blog and it was a big hit with my readers and something I would like to be able to offer them more of!

So, I'm asking if you would like to run a giveaway on my blog, maybe a giftcard for your online shop, a gift or a signed book? In return I will write a post about your shop/business and feature pictures of your products. The products would need to be something that I am interested in and something I think my readers would be interested in ~ homeware, garden, crochet, craft, parenting etc.

I would advertise the post on my Facebook page (currently 873 fans), Twitter (currently 532 followers), Instagram (currently 633 followers) and bloglovin. And also pin your pictures to my Pinterest boards (currently 299 followers).

Alternatively, if you would like to send me a product to review or add a banner to my blog then I would be happy to discuss this too.

If this is something you might be interested in then please e-mail me at thechimneypot@outlook.com

Thank you for reading x

Etsy Shop

Hello, how have you all been? I have just been on my friends Hen weekend in York which was fab, I'm still recovering to be honest - hangovers seem to last longer the older I get :)

Displaying Kids Artwork

This week is project kids room! They are both sleeping in the little bedroom while I decorate their bedroom. I'm going for white walls, white skirting and door, a white blind and curtains and then adding colour with bedspreads and artwork on the walls.

I have been looking on pinterest for inspiration on how to display artwork and storage ideas:
Follow Tracy @IHeartHome's board I Heart...Kids Decor on Pinterest.

I have also set up a pinterest board for 'shared bedrooms' to look for layout ideas. What would I do without Pinterest???

Here are my ideas so far:

Framed Art:

Large Cork Board:

Curtain rods and pegs:

Washi tape:

Art wall:


Picture Ledges:

All images from Pinterest

Which is your favourite? How do/did you display your children's artwork? We have a couple of bits on the fridge and then some in the bedroom (and some in the recycling ahem) so would be nice to make a feature of it.

Hopefully won't be long before I can show you the finished bedroom, think I need a trip to Ikea!

Thank you for reading xx
