"mint green toys, clothes and accessories for kids"Spring is here and I can’t see beyond mint green at the moment.  It’s in the shops, it’s in the magazines and it’s on my mind.  It’s such a fresh and vibrant colour and I’m absolutely going crazy for it.  So I went on the hunt for some mint green lovelies for the kids and here’s what I found:

1.  An old wardrobe given a new lease of life by painting it mint green.  Perfect for any kids room, I found this over at style-files.

2.  A cute little summer dress with a high seas print by Winter Water Factory.

3.  I love the idea of having a single wooden letter on display in a nursery and I love this lower case ‘a’ by Old New Again.

4.  Gorgeous little baby ballet shoes by Baby Bloch. You can get these at Bohemia Design.

5.  Beautiful mint green and gold wallpaper adorned with colourful humming birds, perfect for kids or adults too.  It’s called Grove Garden Wallpaper and it’s from Fabrics & Papers.

6.  A sweet little elephant bowl made of stoneware clay and its from A. Speer Ceramic Studio.

7.  I just want to eat these mint green cake pops now! The photo is from Fern Lee photography where you’ll also find instructions on how to make these delicious looking treats.

8.  An adorable little hand made bunny rabbit wearing mint green and polka dots by Timo Handmade.

9.  Last is this lovely, cosy looking quilt with a turtle print on one side and stripes on the other.  This one is by Moo Chic Baby.

"seagulls bib and baby wrap set""butterfly bib and swaddle set""clouds bib and swaddle blanket"Ketiketa is a wonderful French brand with a Nepalese twist.  They create clothes, bed linen and accessories for babies, girls and boys using traditional Nepalese fabrics and materials.  The textile in question is called ‘dumbar kumari’ named after a Nepalese princess who brought the technique of block printing back from India to Nepal in the 19th Century.  Today I’m lusting after their beautiful bib and baby wrap sets that come in an equally beautiful gift box.  I’m loving the delicate prints, the softness of the cotton voile and the elegance of the packaging.  Ketiketa have managed to marry French style with Nepalese tradition to create super elegant and chic clothes and accessories for kids.  To get these baby bib sets head to Ola Deco.

And here’s where you’ll find some more chic French baby bibs.

"red bowl for kids"

Yesterday I came across Hoto, a small pottery studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  They’re only a few months old and so far they make just one thing… this lovely soup bowl, but it’s not just about the bowl.  It’s called Little Red Cap and it’s a bowl with a story.  There are 4 different illustrations within the bowl that tell a visual Little Red Riding Hood type story but there’s more.  The artist has brought the tale to life by creating a background of trees and wolves that come with the bowl.  So while your little one is eating, you can set up the background and tell the story with the lovely props.  I think the idea is so creative, so unusual, so lovely and I hope Hoto make more such themed plates and bowls.  The packaging too deserves a mention… the round box with the hanging wolves is simple but very stylish.  You can find out more at Hoto’s site where you can buy the bowl too and they ship internationally. What a fantatsic idea!

"linen baby bibs, blankets and quilts"

Sometimes there are things that land in my inbox that I can’t wait to share.  Tulip + i is just one of those things.  It’s a little Canadian boutique selling baby blankets, bibs, clothes, pillows and more, all made of beautiful washed linen.  The colours are muted with soft greys, purples, pinks and browns complementing each other wonderfully well.  None of the stuff is cutesy in anyway, just simple designs with bags of soft and subtle style.  Many of the cushions have a tiny little animal printed on them in white or yellow, the baby blankets and place mats have some Italian text on them while the bibs have contrasting coloured straps.  It’s these little touches and details that make Tulip + i so special.  Natalie, the mama in question and the designer, definitely has an eye for beauty.  Inspired by life’s little pleasures, her collection evokes a sense of happiness, calm and an overwhelming desire to touch it all!  Head over to Tulip + i to see all the goodies and they’re offering 20% off everything till 19th December 2011. 

"wooden play tent for kids"

"indoor swing for kids"

I was browsing the lovely store that is Kids Love Design when some elegant furniture in blond wood caught my eye.  I looked more closely and found a beautiful collection of not just large furniture but little things for the home too.  Designed and created by Caroline Gomez of France, each of the natural wood pieces are so simple and so graceful.  There’s even an indoor swing in the collection… which kid (big or small) wouldn’t want a swing at home?  If you’re lucky enough to have the space, then why not.  I also love the tent where you can go pretend camping every night and then there are the lovely mountain shaped platters on which to eat your snacks.  Also on offer are some fabulous 2 legged bedside and console style tables which would work equally well in a kids room or an adults.  I could go on and on about this beautiful collection (which also includes some lovely kids art) but I’ll let you discover the rest at Caroline Gomez’s site where you’ll find her shop too.

"studio violet circus violet porcelain set"

"studio violet porcelain set"

"studio violet characters"

I chanced upon my Studio Violet post the other day and I fell in love all over again.  I just love the work that the design duo Elisabeth and Camilla put together.  So creative and so beautiful.  I had a look around to see if they’d done anything new.  I didn’t find anything new but I did find something old.  This circus porcelain set… it was instant love.  Charming vintage looking porcelain plates and cups adorned with the Studio Violet characters joined together in a circus theme.  It’s just delightful.  This set was a special commission so isn’t for sale any more (believe me I did look as I was so tempted) but I wanted to share it as I thought you would love it too.

Studio Violet the shop is no longer open but you can get their wares and other goodies at Fine Little Day (Elisabeth’s shop) or you can have a look at Camilla’s site.

"Etsy pretty little things"

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that bring the most pleasure and delight.  These are 4 little things I found on etsy that made me smile:

1.  Cute little decals for your plates and mugs.  Brighten up any of your kiddos boring white plates or cups with one of these. They’re from an Argentinian shop called Yaelfran on etsy.

2.  I love these little wooden magnets, especially the raindrop ones.  Whether you adorn a nursery wall or your own wall with these, they’ll make you smile whenever you see them.  They’re from a shop called Snug Studio.

3.  A hand made mobile made of mobile homes… a tepee, igloo, adobe, airstream and a yurt.  So simple, so charming.  Head to Jikits etsy store to find it.

4. Last is this adorable little hedgehog soft toy with a bright red nose.  He’s the perfect little companion for a little person in their pram, cot or just to hug.  This cutie hedgehog comes from Saracarr‘s shop

"range ton pyjama kids"

Ooh la, la… I’m liking this range of goodies by Range Ton Pyjama.  When I first spotted them I didn’t know what they were but I knew they looked darn cool.  With a little digging and some much needed help from good old google translate, I found out that they’re a range of yummy little French products for the kiddies.  At the top you’ve got table napkins, then a quirky, robot like pyjama case, a soft toy rattle and some little pouches to store whatever you like.  There’s more to the range including a mini hot water bottle (only made of grains, no water required)… so sweet. 

Range Ton Pyjama offer everyday kids stuff but they’ve added bags of funky style.  To get this range, go over to Prairymood, a French store full of yummies.  Sadly, it’s only in French so you’ll need to don your French speaking hat or there’s always google translate.  The range costs from €11 – €34 and shipping is €15.50. 

"Organic cotton elephant bib"

Baby bibs can often be a bit too cutesy for my liking.  But this elephant bib is super cute without an ounce of cutesy-ness.  Just the way I like it.  The plain colours with a simple, child-like elephant illustration make for a bib that’s sweet and stylish.  Made by Amy from Canada, this bib is from her Etsy shop.  Also for sale are an equally cute polka dot panda one and a cityscape one.  The bibs are organic cotton and cost $19.26 each plus $5.35 shipping to the UK.  While you’re over at Amy’s delectable store, don’t miss her sweet little sandwich pouches.  They’re more than worth a view. 

"Birds of Feather melamine plates"

The sun has got his hat on, hip-hip-hip-hooray… as the song goes.  It’s true, the sun has finally decided to grace our shores.  And that can only mean lots of barbecues, picnics and al-fresco eating galore.  So, I’ve been on the hunt for some melamine plates.  My search ended when I found these Birds of Feather plates.  How wonderful are they?  They’re almost too good to eat from… almost!  The rich colours and the beautiful images inspired by the outdoors combine to create true stunners.  These Birds of Feather melamine plates are by Pocketo and cost $40 for a set of 4 and they offer worldwide shipping.  Pocketo is a hot US based design shop with the philosophy ‘art for your everyday’, and I for one subscribe whole heartedly to this philosophy.

Pocketo first discovered through Covet Garden
