A quick start to this Monday morning, I wanted to share these handmade dolls.  How adorable are they?  All these dolls are made by hand by Sophia Smeekens who has been making dolls ever since she was a kid.  I love the quirky faces and the pointy heads on those stripey dolls which are my favourite.  And the sleepy eyes?  Too sweet! Handmade dolls always get my vote and these ones are so different than any I’ve seen before.  You can find a selection at the lovely Pearls and Swines boutique.

"pink and grey kids room ideas"I’m always dreaming of re-decorating every room in the house.  Today I’m loving pink and grey for my daughters room.  Grey isn’t the most obvious choice for a kids room but with a dash of pink I think it works so well.  Personally, I’d even go for just grey with lots of white but today I wanted to add a bit of pink to the mix.  This kind of colour scheme and decor also really appeals to my minimalist side.  When i started putting this board together I knew I would like the end result but I didn’t realise quite how much this colour scheme would appeal to me.  Hope you like it too…

"cute handmade dolls"

I’ve got an ever growing obsession with hand made dolls.  How can I resist when I come across such cuties like these?!  I found these ones over at a shop called Pretty Little Things.  Created by Californian designer and textile artist Lori Marie, these hand made cloth dolls are so adorable.  Lori also makes other sweet little things like these elephant garlands, little girly pouches and wallets and some cool feather crowns for dressing up fun.  All these delightful goodies come in bright and bold colours and would add a splash of fun to any little girls room.  Head to Lori Marie’s shop to find these dolls and all the other cuties!

I never used to be a fan of dolls.  That is until I started writing this blog and discovered some of the most beautiful and unusual handmade fabric dolls and soft toys.  Not only am I a big fan now but I often get tempted to start my very own collection.  Not ebabee no.1’s, mine.  Maybe one day… but until then I’ll continue to admire and share with you my finds.  And today I bring you hand made dolls by one of my favourite Spanish stores: Haciendo el Indio.  Created by Cristina Serrano, her style is so poetic and magical and that’s what you get from her dolls.

Cristina offers a range of dolls including a guardian, a chick, a fox and more.  Each one is hand made and infused with Cristina’s unique style.  The only problem I can think of is how do you choose just one!  To check out these adorable dolls head to Haciendo el Indio.  The dolls cost €29 each and shipping is worldwide. UK shipping is €8.  While you’re there, have a look at Cristina’s other goodies too.

"Hand made doll by Dents de Loup"I so wish this had been my attic toy.  You know your favourite soft toy that your mama can’t bear to part with it so she puts it away in the attic.  Fast forward 20 years when you find it and all those warm, fuzzy feelings rush back and you give it to your bambino.  My attic toy was actually quite creepy so it never came out of the attic (mum, what were you thinking?!).   Nowhere near as cool as this oh so adorable hand made doll.  If only…

This stripy knitted doll is by Dents de Loup (wolf teeth)… I love their store name too. They come in other colours including yellow, orange, green and pink.  Perfect for your newborn or a gift for someone else’s.  The little knitted doll can hang out in the cot or pram keeping your bambino company until it graduates to a clutch toy.  So sweet.  I’m not normally a knitted doll fan but then I’d never seen this one.  To get this hand made doll, head to Dents de Loup’s etsy store where they cost $18 plus $5 shipping to anywhere in the world.  And while you’re there, don’t miss the doll with the red shoes and super fancy coat.

Cuddles a la carte

 "Knuffels a la carte soft toys"

*Knuffels = cuddles in Dutch

Have you ever seen a more weird and wonderful bunch of characters all in one place? I can honestly say I haven’t.  When I discovered Knuffels a la carte (actually they discovered me… happy days!)  I couldn’t wait to share.  What a fantastically whacky store that makes you want to reach out and grab all the delicious creatures on display. They sell only soft toys but you won’t find any run of the mill ones here. Expect quirky, imaginative, eccentric looking beings for babies, kids and even adults too.

Knuffels a la carte are based in the Netherlands but stock soft toys from around the globe.  I can only think of their goodies as the creme de la creme of soft toys. On offer are a variety of soft creatures of every description including soft toy dolls, a very cool soft toy mouse called Snooshy (don’t miss his scarf!), a soft toy alien and even a cuddly cactus. If you fancy a cuddle from one of these quirky chaps, head over to Knuffels a la carte. Prices start from €7.50, there’s plenty in the €20-€30 price range and shipping to Europe is from €4.  They ship worldwide too from €7.50.  The really difficult bit is choosing just one.
