Bunny cot quilt
You may have recently read my post featuring Hollyhock home designs. That stunning bunny-themed, linen, duvet set I got for E? Well I have some exciting news. Continuing along with the bunny theme, seeing as it's Easter, who wants to win one of these beautiful handmade cot quilts by the London based designer SARAHK, worth £60?!

Thick and cosy, this multi-purpose quilt would make an adorable Easter gift for that special little person. Block printed by hand, featuring a grey bunny design, trimmed with a chic aqua stripe. The perfect size for a babies cot or toddler bed. It also ... Read More

One of the best things about Instagram (and also one of the best places to catch up with me in between posts) is discovering unique new brands. I recently came across the perfect example of a wonderful new discovery. And just in time as i'm currently in the process of making the transition for E from a cot to cot-bed. We are just about to take the sides of her cot and introduce her very own duvet, which in turn requires that special first bed linen. Introducing Hollyhock home.

Hollyhock home is perhaps the most beautiful, vintage-styled design ... Read More

Plum and sparrow 2
So I came across the most divine babies moses basket today on Instagram. So beautiful, gorgeous, unique, I just had to share. I mean have you ever seen one so beautiful? Forget the new Mamas and Papas Liberty range. If you expecting and looking for the perfect, safe place for your newborn bundle to snuggle and sleep, this is it.

Plum + Sparrow is a mother of four, inspired by the world around her, and driven by life's experiences, to create something totally unique, natural and wonderful for her baby. I think she's done a pretty good job, judging by the fact that currently every ... Read More

Coco and Wolf little B
I love anything pretty. So i'm very lucky to have two girls. When it comes to nursery and bedroom style (or clothing) I can go all out.  My latest love is Coco & Wolf. Handmade in England with vintage styling, and Liberty print is in abundance. From a full liberty-fabric-dress, to a more subtle collar detail, their children's clothing collection is currently one of my favourites. C&W have also just launched the most beautiful bedding and accessories, which is what I am currently most excited about.

We recently returned from a couple of weeks in Italy where my youngest ( ... Read More

I love searching out cool new children's brand and boutiques. I find myself more often than not these days purchasing on-line. Simply because that's where you can find the most unique and gorgeous things. Whether it be clothing, toys or interiors, I so much prefer high-quality stylish pieces that are different. For me a children's bedroom or nursery should be just as well designed as any other room in your house.

When it comes to little interiors then, this cannot be more of the case. I just adored decorating both my girls nurseries. It is one of the most exciting parts about ne ... Read More

So things have been super-hectic this past few weeks as you will know from my lack of posts lately. Well one main reason for this, aside from a six-month old and a three year old, is the fact that I have taken on an exciting new project. Say hello to my new baby, Cottage-Toys.

The family business has now come into my hands. With the help of my brother, I have been excitedly re-launching our gorgeous online children's and baby boutique, which as you can imagine is very exciting. There is lots to do and at times it has been stressful, but there is also a bit of fun involved. What ... Read More

When I have a spare minute or two I like to look around my favourite online baby boutiques and see what's 'new-in'. These days the majority of my shopping is done from the laptop, there is no way I am hitting the shops with two-in-tow. If I have a shopping trip planned I like to make the most of it. Solo.

When it comes to bits for the little ones I tend to search around for unique, quality pieces. I like to stick to the theory quality over quantity. Favourite destinations include the obvious Little White Company, just the most gorgeous understated bed linens. And a cute hanging ... Read More

Just came across these adorable crochet baby mobiles. Do you know anyone that can knit?

I would just adore something like this for the new nursery, I think the bunnies are my favourite. But I feel the £60+ price tag is a little steep so not sure I can justify it? (If you can knit this would be a great little business venture, supplied a little more reasonably? I would be your first customer.) They are really hard to find, literally Etsy is the only place.

Let me know! Or perhaps I should take up knitting myself....

The past few days have been spent mostly snuggled up under a blanket in front of the fire, both A and I have caught this bug that seems to be going around. Snoozing and feeling sorry for myself aside, I have also had time on my hands with an uncharacteristic sleeping babe allowing for some serious internet action.

I think this 'nesting stage' has fuelled my current obsession with all things baby and kids, and as a result I have come across some really cool things that I feel I need in my life (Or should I say in the life of my little one and one-to-be.) The only bummer being I s ... Read More

With under six weeks to go I am definitely at that 'nesting' stage. I have (although I said I wouldn't) purchased several new first outfits, the sales are just too tempting. And I am already starting to sort and wash all those tiny baby grows and cardi's in preparation. I cannot wait to get the nursery finished now either. I was going to leave it as-is, painted in Farrow and Ball's blackened, which is a lovely soft grey. But I am now thinking I would like to wallpaper one wall, in either a star or stripe. Thanks to Pinterest I have lots of ideas.

When it comes to thinki ... Read More
