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.
