Bold Prints

Excitement ensued this morning as the Mini Boden catologue landed on the doormat and soon disappeared with my daughters armed with pens to mark their favourites.  I too adore bold, bright prints and wanted to find other gorgeous things for children to wear.  To my delight I found some fantastic clothes, beautifully made and affordable.  Whilst we can all pop to the high street or the supermarket and get a good selection of childrens clothes, we are missing some beautiful pieces, that are not mass produced but are lovingly created. 

And it's reversible!

Fabric Friday

I have decided to declare Friday as a fabric indulgence day.  As a self confessed fabric addict what better way to spend my time looking at fabric or items created with the gorgeous stuff.  Yet the list of fabrics are endless so I need some focus here. With it only being a couple of weeks since Valentines and Mothers Day fast approaching where better to start than with Amy Butlers new collection, LOVE.

The perfect way to brighten up a very boring but necessary chore.

I only wish I had this changing/ diaper bag when my children were tiny.

I think these would be the perfect addition to my picnic basket this summer.
