Trawling through my photo backups the other day I rediscovered this photo from a post I did about 5 years ago. My boys' lovely little playroom in Sydney. At the time my eldest had just turned 5 and his brothers were 2 and a half and 3 and a half.
This was such a happy little space, where we all hung out together, playing Lego and trains and running out to the garden.
I'm so happy I still have this photo, I have other pics of them playing away in here which are precious too but this is what it looked like freshly tidied before the chaos descended upon it each morning.
My boys have outgrown most of the things in this photo but we still have the bunting so lovingly and painstakingly created by me over a 2 year period ;-) and some of the other little bits and pieces. I love the stage they're at now, witty and full of ideas but I do feel a little ache when I think of how tiny they were playing in this room and how quickly 5 years can pass.
If you never saw the full post and would like a look you can see it here.
Hi, My name is Alice and this is my space to share my vintage finds and things I love. Having lived in Sydney, Australia for many years our family of five returned to Dublin, Ireland to live in July 2014.
Formerly a graphic designer, I'm currently a stay-at-home-mum with 3 little munchkins. I love all things vintage, particularly kitchenware and cute decor for my boys. My favourite way to relax is to go wandering through flea markets and op shops/thrift stores and I love sharing my favourite finds on this blog :-)
