Henry’s House will be ONE on Wednesday 18th January.  That’s less than 5 days away! To celebrate, one of you will receive a present; a Tiny Teepee!

The Tiny Teepee is a great little addition to your child’s room. THIS TEEPEE IS ONLY 72cm HIGH and is the perfect size for teddies and dolls. Not big enough for kids to play in.

 If you are the winner, you will be the first person to own a Tiny Teepee as they are not yet available for sale. You can choose between a “boys” or “girls” Tiny Teepee.

Because you were all so great at sharing the Henry’s House Facebook page and got us to 2,000 likers there is a bonus, the winner will also receive an Avery Rabbit to play inside the Tiny Teepee.


 All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this blog post. The celebration starts now so comment away!  We’d love to know how you first found Henry’s House so why not share it with us in your comment.

And because I’m super excited by the response this celebration has received, there will be a second prize.  One other winner will receive this bunting if we reach the next goal of 2,100 Facebook page likers.


Please only enter once (post only one comment) to make this fair for everyone.  This is for Australian residents only (sorry to all the international fans 😦 ) The celebration will end at 9pm QLD time on Wed 18/1/12. The winner will be chosen randomly and notified by email.  Postage will need to be paid by the winner. 

**Please note that this Tiny Teepee is only 72cm high.  It is not big enough for kids to play in and is designed as a “toy” Teepee.  Perfect size forAvery Rabbits, teddies and dolls. **

Well, at this stage there is only one winner of the Henry’s House “Last Chance” Christmas competition.  We didn’t have any entrants in the photo section unfortunately which means only one winner.  We have chosen our favourite answer to the question “Why do you need a Henry’s House Teepee for Christmas?” and here it is:

Hi, my name is Meika and I would love a Henry’s House TeePee. I have lots of brothers and sisters and I need a place to hide. I think that having my tea parties in the pink tent would be so much fun with all of my teddies and dolly’s, I hope that one day I can have one.  Maybe Santa will bring me one xx

My children loved this comment, especially the part about Santa.  I think that was the magic word 😉  Congratulations!  The Pink Teepee is yours and will be in the post soon 🙂

PS. We will make a decision by Monday morning in relation to a second winner.

I’m only seven days late, but I’ve made an advent calendar and thought I’d share it with you.

I saw a similar version somewhere and just had to make one.  I started with a piece of pine from the hardware store, painted in white and sanded it for that rustic look.  I did the same with the pegs.

Then I added little embellishments, wrapped a chocolate and hung them from the pegs.

I also included a nice “activity” in each present.  A good deed we can do to help us remember that Christmas is about giving and sharing our love.  Today’s said to write a nice note about someone in your family and hide it for them to find later.  I can’t wait to see what the children have written to each other.  I know it will be something to keep forever.

How do you count down the days until Christmas?

I am quite often asked which style of Teepee I make the most of.  Lately most of my orders are from customers who have been supplying their own fabrics so each one is different.  But this Basic Teepee with the Red Spot trims is definitely the number one seller.

With it’s classic colour scheme of red, white and blue it will work perfectly as a boys Teepee but also as a girls Teepee.  I LOVE reds paired with pinks to decorate a girls room.  Simply change the star on this Teepee to a heart and you’re all set for a girl.  And to add a little more of a girlie flair, change the triangle bunting to half circles for that softer pretty look.

Two of a kind


I love it when a customers find their own fabrics and then send them on to me to make them into Teepees.  Why do I love it?  Because it feels like it’s my birthday every time the postie comes with a package and to open it up and see the gorgeous fabrics inside is just the best.

This was definitely the case when Nicole sent me her fabrics.  Nicole wanted two Teepees, matching Mats and half circle Bunting.  One Teepee set in pink and the other in blue.  I only wish I had time to take better photos because these don’t do the fabric justice.  I just love these Teepees.  Thank you Nicole for sending me such a great “present” 😉

And after much deliberation, I think I’ve decided that I like the blue the best.  Which one is your favourite?

Jo, all the way over in the UK, saw Henry’s House Teepees on Facebook and decided she just had to have one.  Even with the extra cost of postage and having to purchase the poles on her end she insisted it was worth it!  I’m glad she did because I got to make this beautiful Teepee with fabrics from Jo’s very own “Purkilicious” range (her business).

And both the mat and Teepee feature the signature “Purki” butterfly.

To complement the fabrics and give it a shabby chic look, Jo requested a different fabric trim for each panel of the Teepee.

And when it all came together it worked beautifully.  So pretty 🙂

I managed to find a spare minute to squeeze in this Teepee for Hayley.

She was desperate to have a Teepee of Christmas and because she was the first on my waiting list, she gets to have her Teepee now.


Within a week, she had sent the fabric she had chosen and now her Teepee is complete.  No wonder I was busy this week 😛

If you want a Teepee for Christmas, don’t give up hope.  Even though I am fully booked until Christmas with orders, I occasionally get ahead with these orders and can squeeze in an extra Teepee here and there.  If you want to be added to the waiting list, send through your order via the ‘order‘ tab.  I will put your name on the list and hopefully your Christmas wishes will come true 😉

Mel over at Miss Molly’s has been eyeing off my Teepees for nearly a year and now she has one for her little Joshie for his birthday.

Red and Black to match the pirate bunting Mel will be making.

It will be a fun pirate party for the birthday boy and all his friends 🙂
