reading list and kids these days

Oooh, I have some new-to-me books. In the middle is "Green is the new black" by Tamsin Blanchard subtitled: "How to change the world with style". I will report back on this....And bottom of the pile is the great "How to be an explorer of the world" by Keri Smith (link to her blog, go on, check it out) - it is a book of things to do which can help reignite creativity and alter the way you look at the world around you. I bought it so I can do some of the projects in it with my kids but it is actually aimed at adults. What is everyone else reading?

So preschoool is not quite what it used to be....this is some of the work Little I bought home last week, her photoshopped pictures of her lego model.

Traditionalists out there be reassured, there is also a sandpit, climbing frame and home corner.
In sewing news:
I am hemming my Nora top from Ottobre this afternoon and working on another t shirt refashion from the box of clothes sent by Fabulous Emma. I hope to share pictures soon.


  1. Ooooh, those sound like some yummy books!

  2. Its amazing what they do at pre-school now (i'm sounding old now) I am reading Fit for real people but i can't understand it...maybe it will be better if i work through it as i am sewing! Hope you have a great week xxx

  3. They look like great books you have to look forward to. I'm reading Savvy Chic by Anna Johnson. The illustrations are so gorgeous and the text inspiring. I generally stay away from novels (a decision made last winter) as they take over my life and the household falls apart!!
