I just love the DIY touches in our little girl’s nursery. While planning out her room, I came across these stuffed birds. I’d made them years before and left them in a packet, not really knowing what to do with them. Now, suddenly, I knew what they were for; her very own bird nursery mobile.
Sweet Potato and Brownies are not words that I would have thought I’d be saying in the same sentence. Unless, of course, the brownies were as dessert after the sweet potato. But you know what? They go together SO WELL!
Whether you prefer to eat sugar, gluten, grain or dairy free foods, you need a recipe to bake for a friend or you just feel like experimenting, these sweet potato and date brownies are delicious! The dates give a gentle natural sweetness and they have a surprisingly good texture for a brownie with absolutely no flour or other grain. Give them a try and let me know what you think.
Something we’ve always been short of in our house is a place to display pretty things. Decor always ends up sitting on the counter and just looking like a mess. In setting up the nursery I knew that we had to have some shelving space that was not only practical, but also pretty. This DIY Wood and Leather Strap Shelf was the perfect solution. It was one of the simplest DIYs in the room, but adds so much character.
I had so much fun putting together our nursery, so I’m excited to finally give you a little nursery room tour. One of the things that I knew I wanted to do was to support local brands. There are so many really great products being produced around SA at the moment that it just makes perfect sense.
