It was so hard to choose something from her range of designs, but in the end I chose a reversable messenger bag for Tom - it's adorable - red stripes with gorgeous airplane fabric on one side, then denim and funky cars if you turn it inside out. He is going to LOVE it - he loves collecting treasures when we are out (usually just stones, or shells from the beach) so this will be perfect! I really want to post a piccie of him with it, but have decided to save it for Christmas now that's not too far away - so in the meantime here's a picture of a bag similar to the one Jacqui made me. Check out Mee a Bee's Etsy shop here.

It's so sweet, even more gorgeous in real life than it looked on the picture on the web, and Tom loves it (sorry it's such a grainy pic... it was taken on my iphone!) It's made from 100% cotton with a lovely ticking stripe pattern and will be so cool for the Summer, plus has a sweet little pocket perfect for Tom's little treasures (stones from our gravel driveway mostly...)

I was so excited this week when a parcel arrived from the lovely Lou from Buttons at Lou Lou. Inside were some beautiful handmade fabric buttons and accessories I had chosen from her website, and they were even more gorgeous than I expected!
Lou loves fabrics as much as I do - she chooses the most beautiful she can find and then carefully makes them into unique limited edition fabric covered buttons. These fabric covered buttons are then made into a wide range of fun accessories for both children and adults. She has a wonderful range of rings, earrings, necklaces, paperclips, brooches, hairbands... or you can just buy the buttons themselves to use in your own projects. I love this Babushka necklace...
I am definitely visiting her site again before Christmas and recommend you do too - I am sure friends and family would love to receive some of these gorgeous and unique items as gifts and I can certainly vouch for their quality.

Can you believe that ten weeks from today it will be Christmas Eve? No, nor could we!!! But it's true, which means we really must all start to think not only about present-buying but also about how we can make our Christmas decor just that little bit more stylish and special this year.
And, once Christmas is gone, you can pack it up away safely ready to bring out again next year - reusable, eco-friendly, and gorgeous - what more could you ask?

As with so many of the wonderful 'Fantastic Finds' I have featured on this blog, these are not a mass-produced, factory made product - all of Nikola's bibs are made lovingly by hand in Sydney.
Flobib have recently introduced a new line to their website - a stylish 'pocket burper' to sling over your shoulder and catch all those stray dribbley bits that babies create - again made using gorgeous fabrics.Take a look at their website here - if you have a baby I'm sure you will find their products irresistable.

As a parent of three myself, I know how scary it can be to lose your child even for the shortest amount of time in a busy place. Identitats come in all sorts of different designs, and have on them contact and medical details (either already printed or you can write them on yourselves), so if a parent's worst fear should happen and their child goes missing in a crowded place, they can quickly be returned to them.
The great thing about the Identitat concept is that it pleases everyone - kids love nothing better than tattoos so will wear them with pride (I can imagine my little ones not wanting to take them off) and parents can take their children to busy areas safe in the knowledge that they are armed with all the information they need for a speedy return.
And now for the best bit ... Marieke at Tat your Tot has very kindly offered to give away 4 packs of each design of 'Write on tats' to one lucky reader of my blog!!! All you have to do is to tell your friends about the wonderful Tat your Tot site and concept - every tweet, Facebook or blog post mentioning Tat your Tot and this competition will count for one entry each (this includes RTs too!) - comment below once you have spread the word and how many entries you have made, and we will draw the winner one week today (Friday 11th September)!!

I already had an 'Autumnal shabby chic' bunting in my range, but not only is it no longer Autumn (!) but the fabric for this is now out of print, so it was high time for something new!

Raegan has done a fantastic job of providing something a little different for us online shoppers, and I think what marks her out from the crowd is that she provides something for a wider age range than many childrens' sites. And who knew you could even buy lullaby renditions from Coldplay? You really do have to visit A Little Bit of Cheek - it's never too early to educate your little rockers!

Many customers and friends noticed the ring and were taken by the message and the idea behind the ring. Slowly orders starting coming in with customers requesting their own messages of inspiration for their piece. Orders came in all forms, languages and styles. From this encouraging response the inspiration for ‘Made to Inspire’ took off. Now a mother and daughter team Filomena and Natalia work side by side creating works to inspire and feed the souls of their customers.

One is a funky retro boys' banner with a spaceman theme, the other is a gorgeous girly design we call 'Girls Play' and they are both 3M long. The fabric used in girls' play is now actually out of print, so this one is the last of it's kind!
To win your bunting, please just let me know which one you would like to win, and why, and please please become a follower of my blog if you're not already. The winner will be drawn out of the hat by my 6 year old this time, one week today (Friday 14th August) I will take a piccie of the draw taking place!
Good luck folks, and don't forget to tell all your friends to enter too!

Little Lottie Lou Lou is run by Vicki, who set up this boutique online store after selling on Ebay for five years, and offers delightful items for Mother, Baby and Child. I find her store unique because it not only sells new and handmade items, but also preloved and recycled - it's great to be able to find such a range of things in one store for both adults and children and was an inspired idea of Vicki's to put them all up in her own store rather than to-ing and fro-ing through Ebay.

Nice, bright, modern and girly, but without being at all pink and fluffy (which these 9 year olds invariably hate!) x Actually, wouldn't mind some of this for myself... x
