Little Lucy Willow
A child’s room is always full of little trinkets and treasures that get lost amongst the mayhem. A rosette for riding, a trophy for dancing or a homemade rocket perhaps? There are so many things that our children take pride in and want to show off to the world. So where do we put all this memorabilia? A beautiful wall shelf could be a good place to start. At Little Lucy Willow we have now added these stunning designs to our Florence Flutterby and Daisy Brambles collections. Handmade to order and built to last, they serve up the perfect finishing touch to a..
Ok so here are the statistics...More than 50% of Little Lucy Willow customers opted to buy three quarter or double sized beds for their children last year. It’s clear there has been a shift in the market but why? Jason Thomas, Sales Director at Little Lucy Willow says it’s all down to sensible spending. “It goes without saying that you need adequate space if you are going to purchase a double bed for your child, but those who have that luxury are choosing to buy bigger, simply to cut costs later on. “It makes a lot of sense, especially if you are looking at a high qualit..
A comfortable bed which is sufficiently large and supportive is essential for a good night's sleep. But it's not the only thing that will help us get the rest we need. The position we sleep in is also central to our wellbeing so if snoring, heartburn or the dreaded wrinkles are blighting your life, it could simply be that you need to roll over! Back Sleeping on your back is considered to be the best position for your neck and spine as they are resting in a neutral position, allowing your mattress to support them. This position is also good for those keen on main..
There is something about a cabin bed that quite enchants a child. Their little eyes light up as they prepare to explore the seemingly wondrous structure before them. Under, over, round and round, looking for hidden secrets! But cabin beds aren’t just about playtime. With space enough to house clothes, toys, books and much, much more, they present the answer to all of your storage conundrums. Instead of cramming belongings into an already densely packed bundle under the bed, the crafty cabin bed allows you to compartmentalise (sigh, music to my ears!). We recen..
In the beginning, when Lucy Willow first started selling furniture back in 2007, and with little experience and limited budget, we decided to deliver our furniture ourselves. Every Friday night we would load up our large van in order to deliver everyone’s furniture for the weekend. This invariably meant a 4.00am start in order to beat the traffic to travel to various parts of the country to begin a long day’s work as well as face the inevitable long drive back home. I am thankful that those days are gone and we now employ the services of a professional delivery company however along the wa..

So how has your December been so far? I'm hoping all your presents have been bought, wrapped and are tucked under the tree ready to be devoured on Christmas Day...ok maybe that is wishful I thinking but I'm sure it won't be too long before you're ship shape and ready! This can be a super hectic time. I find the best way to combat any seasonal stress is to take time out with the children. I like to remind myself what it’s really all about. A simple drive out to look at all the Christmas lights (whilst listening to some festive songs of course!) is a great diversion from all t..
So December is here and the madness has just gone up a notch. You’ve got presents to buy for everyone and his dog - then wrap them - a Christmas dinner for 14 to organise and somewhere amongst that lot you must shoehorn in your yearly visits to loved ones, or make space in your home for them to visit you. Phew. The mere thought of it all exhausts me! Well don’t fret because we’ve got some handy tips to keep your children chirpy and cheerful despite all the upheaval the festive season can bring. Missed naps, irregular mealtimes, late bedtimes...it all adds up to a grumpy, grouc..
Christmas shopping should never be a chore. But when you’re surrounded by cheery festive overload it sort of pushes you to the other side of happiness. Oh and when you forget it’s Black Friday too... Go just about anywhere and you’ll hear Shakin Stevens on loop, see shop assistants in titled santa hats and mechanical elves trapped in fake snow storms to remind you that ‘tis the season to be jolly’. Of course there are the crowds to contend with too. Like being swept up in the rapids it took all the strength I could muster to make my way to the shop entrance and cling on for dear life. ..
It’s time. We must down tools and get those Christmas thinking caps on. Outfits, food, decorations and most importantly - presents! The biggest gifts are usually the easiest ones to sort out. The ones we know will be greeted with howls of delight and eternal thanks (for about two weeks at least...). We can get these boxed off, boxed up and ready to go under the tree. It’s the little ones that get us all in a tizzy. What can we possibly put in those stockings that won’t get cast aside like an old stinky sock the moment they’re unwrapped? Well here at Little Luc..
What could possibly feel better than clambering into bed on a cold, dark night with a heavy head and happy heart? Nothing quite springs to mind... We hope this is how our children feel when they’ve climbed the apples and pears each evening. Safe, warm and sleepy. I love to see them teddy in hand, droopy-eyed and smiling. But what I love most of all is pulling their warm bedspreads over their little bodies for one last cuddle before their eyes close and they’re lost to the land of nod. It does help of course if you have gorgeous bedding to be snuggled up in, not least a ..
