How cute are these frilly little bloomers? I stumbled on Rikshaw Designs website the other day and loved their collections of hand block-printed crib sets, pillows, and accessories. Such a fresh range of colours and patterns. They also have some beautiful beachy tops for women as well.

If you haven't seen the gorgeous handmade, up-cycled lamps by Jo at The Owls are Hunting yet then you're in for a treat. Made right here in Australia, these vintage lamp bases are from the 60's, 70's and 80's are lovingly given a modern and fun twist, and best of all, each one is unique. I'm in-love with the lamps shown here, but there are plenty more in her made it store, and make sure you pop by the blog for a look too.

I have adored the gorgeous little outfits from Australian owned, Sydney based boutique children’s wear label Oobi Baby & Kids for a while now, and have just recently found out that they are a good friend of a friends, so I thought I'd spread them a little blog love. They deserve it! With legwarmers, beanies and even space hoppers, the collections of charming, retro and timeless pieces in Oobi’s signature colours and textures scream fun & playful and are very addictive. Check out their blog to see how excited the Oobi Mums and bubs get over their favourite pieces and for the whole range and stockists visit their website.

These enchanting pom pom vines would look great at a kids party, or even in a nursery hanging down beside a window or along a wall.
As would these gorgeous fabric ones clustered together like this. A great variation on the tissue paper version. You can get the full tutorials for both of these at once wed.

I know bus scrolls have been a bit of a thing for a while now, but i have just made this one for my brother who lives at Jervis Bay. We saw a similar version around but thought it needed just a little more love. Of course if anyone else would like a special one made to their local area, just contact me and I'd be happy to design one for you too.

I'm not normally much of a winter fan, but... i did get a little bit excited when i found out that Sydney is going to have 2 ice skating venues this winter. One is indoors at CarriageWorks for their first ever Winterland festival (starting July). Entry to Winterland is free, but the skating will set you back $12.50 for 45min and including skate hire. Perfect. There is also going to be an open air rink for just one week also in July at our lovely Bondi Beach. I can't wait for this. What a great backdrop. It costs a little more to go here, but...there is even going to be a little ski hut, with cosy wood fires for an aprés skating sit down and hot chocolate.
