My Favourite 5 for September: Kids’ Clothes, Flower Arranging & Tableware
We are pretty much back to ‘normal’ after the summer (whatever that may be) with Ava loving her new class at school, and Thea starting preschool.
PiCCALILLY ORGANIC KIDS CLOTHES
Ava and Thea have been chosen to be Brand Representatives for the gorgeous kids clothing brand Piccalilly. We are so excited, and I’ll be reviewing some of their organic kids clothes soon. I’m so impressed with them, I put an order in for some gifts. My little nephew turned one last week so I got him these little denim dungarees. Aren’t they cute? The clothes come up quite big, so I got age 6-12 months. There’s room for him to grow, especially as they are adjustable with the two sets of buttons.
And how adorable is this little baby grow? It’s a present for a friend who’s due any day. They don’t know if they’re having a boy or a girl so I think this is a perfect unisex outfit.
TIME FOR MYSELF
It’s been a really busy month, and I am feeling pretty frazzled. I’ve decided that now Thea’s at preschool evert morning, I need to try and do something for myself. This means making time to go to The Handmade Fair, which was brilliant, and learning a new skill. I’m about half way through the FlowerStart online flower arranging course with Julie Davies. Look out for a full review in a few weeks when I’ve finished!
A NEW BEATRIX POTTER BOOK!
I think it’s been out for a while, but we just got the new Beatrix Potter book*, illustrated by Quentin Blake. Thea loves it, and I enjoy reading it to her. It’s quite quaint, and I have to explain some of the terms to her. As it features Mr Tod and Mrs Tiggywinkle, she’s really keen, and the illustrations are beautiful.
Oh John Lewis. You have a lot to answer for. I couldn’t resist these lovely MissPrint melamine goodies in the sale. They are sold out now, but I’m soooo tempted by the matching oven gloves!
Last week, Ava broke her favourite Cath Kidston melamine bowl by standing on it to help me peg out the washing. She was really gutted as she’s had it since she was tiny. So when I spotted these lush @missprint_ltd bowls and beakers I hoped she (and Thea) would love them. Luckily, I was correct, and all is well with the world again 💗 I’ve got my eye on the matching teapot now!
MORE NEW TABLEWARE…
John Lewis again… this time, corn on the cob dishes and forks. So unnecessary. But so cute.
So what do you think of my goodies, do any of them catch your eye? I’d love to know what you think!
