Dala horse babygro

A very cute outfit given to Lily by a good friend - a Dala horse print babygro by Rosie Wonders. She didn't realise how much I LOVE horses (and all my attempts at persuading my baby to love them too, even at 6 months old!) and it fits in perfectly with the wooden ones I picked up in Copenhagen and Stockholm.

I can't believe how fast the time has gone. My baby is growing up and suddenly I have a six month old with two teeth, a love of pear, prune and cauliflower (?), and almost perfect balance when sitting up.

I have added a new plate to my collection....not quite as nice as Ninainvorm's custom made name plates that I have on my wish list, but just a little something made by me to celebrate the birth of my baby girl.

Summer slip-ons

Easy to slip on when the little lady's in the BabyBjorn and a nice retro print for the summer.

Chocolate eggs

A bit late for an Easter theme (see my other one here) but couldn't resist posting these cute pics of my baby stealing my eggs - a true chocoholic already!

Folkloric stationery

Some gorgeous stationery from Present&Correct (again...I love their stuff so much!) that I bought for a friends birthday a while ago and couldn't help taking a few shots of. I absolutely love the Skandi bird print writing paper and acorn envelopes that were sourced in Japan.

Colour-drip birds

I love all things bird-related, and have realised that my flat is slowly filling up with images, screenprints, postcards, books and mobiles of them. I was so excited to come across these extraordinary paintings yesterday (thanks Present&Correct!) by Maurizio Bongiovanni.

The group of paintings, titled 'Bird Rib', aim to "question the effect that the 'digitalization' is taking in the panorama view, re-marking the boundaries of the relationship between nature and technological process". (excerpt and all images taken from his Flickr page)

Baby books/2

Seeing this book again brought back lots of happy childhood memories. Richard Scarry is one of my favourite children's illustrators with his quirky characters and attention to detail. Published by Collins, this is the first edition of 'Richard Scarry's Animal Nursery Tales' from 1975.

Vintage vehicles

Surreal sights as beautiful old vintage vehicles drove down our road yesterday morning - the start of the London to Brighton run that sees around 200 commercial vehicles from the Historic Commercial Vehicle Society attempt the trip to the coast to win trophies and show off their sparkly metal detailing and brightly coloured paintwork. I took SO many photos so expect a few more posts that focus on shape, colour, graphics and type.

Carrot ice-cubes

The weaning process is under way. Bags of coloured ice cubes now fill my freezer.....carrot, sweet potato, butternut squash, apple, pear, parsnip.
