"handmade rag dolls"

I wanted to start by saying sorry to you, my readers, for my silence this past week.  I was away on holiday and spent the last week in Nepal.  While traveling around I didn’t have much internet access.   We had a wonderful holiday though and I really recommend a trip to Nepal.  I will post some holiday pics soon but today I wanted to share these beautiful hand made dolls with you.

These dolls are hand made in Brooklyn, NY by talented mama Indira Villalobos.  This is her new collection for 2014 and I love the colours that she has chosen as well as the gorgeous metallic linen fabric.  Those pink overalls are just the sweetest!  In addition to the dolls, there are pretty mobiles and decorative star cushions.  I’ve known the designer Indira for a while and know that she puts lots of love and passion in to what she creates which is why each piece is made by hand and every little detail is paid attention to.  Indira created the brand Snuggly Ugly with her husband a couple of years ago and this collection is my favourite yet, especially those beautiful star and moon mobiles.

Granny knits…

"handknitted baby and kids clothes"If your child is lucky enough to have a granny who knits for them, then you’ll know where I’m coming from when I say that granny knits are just the best.  We’re one of the lucky ones as my mum-in-law knits some of the most beautiful sweaters for my daughter.  But if you don’t have a granny knitter in the family,  Mamy Factory is for you.  All the chic clothes are hand-knitted by French grannies with love.  The styles are simple and the colours are beautiful with lots of creams, charcoals and dusty pinks on offer.  Mamy Factory knit clothes for babies and kids up to 6 years so if you’re in to hand-knits, do check them out.

"paper garlands for kids rooms"

There is something so cheerful and celebratory about garlands.  Hang them up in a kids room and they add an instant dose of happiness.  I’m a huge fan of garlands for kiddy spaces and I can’t resist sharing when I see some as gorgeous as these.  Hand made of paper and shaped like tiny clouds, these garlands come in a range of colourways.   They’re the creation of Virginie Sannier, a French textile designer with a penchant for paper.  Virginie also makes some lovely cards and stationery all of which you can view at her shop called Miavril.   You’ll get these limited edition garlands there too but you can also try French Blossom who have a selection.
