Cute or kitsch?

I bought this Ralph Lauren intarsia knit from the recent Sell It Mama! event for £1.....something drew me to it, I can't work out if it is super cute or just really kitsch. Not sure it works with the polka dot pj's either way!

Baby books/1

I recently came home from a trip to my parents house laden with books from my childhood - beautiful illustrations, retro graphics and quaint stories. I have fallen in love with the imagery and will be showing my favourites in a series of posts over the next few weeks. First up is 'Ten Little Dogs', published in 1979 and illustrated by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone.

Kate and Wills gloves

Ha Ha! The first Royal Wedding memorabilia I've seen that has brought a smile to my face. Well done Donna them (image from her website).

Mix-up Art

A great new book by Herve Tullet that I bought for Indigos 1st birthday - pages of crazy scribbly patterns, ink blots and colour-block geometrics that you can mix and match for the loudest pattern clashes possible. A gift to help her follow in the footsteps of her talented screenprinter mummy.

Creative packaging

Some beautifully packaged gifts I received from a friend a while ago for Lily. Wrapped in red tissue paper, bound with floral print paper and tied with marbled grey thread that echoed the newsprint bag. Inspiring!
