House to Home, Things I Love

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.


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.


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!


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.

So excited to read this to the girls later (and myself to 😉) Love #beatrixpotter and #quentinblake so it’s a match made in heaven!

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!


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!

    I love John Lewis! I can’t resist buying if I go on their site, so I avoid it unless I have a lot of spare money ha.

    I really like the melamine tableware. They are a really pretty colour. It’s always surprising when children break melamine, but it’s definitely possible. My toddler did it by hitting his plate with his cup! #kcacols

      Yes I was pretty surprised but it was old so I guess it had a weakness in it! I’m pleased with the replacements though. Thanks for popping by! xx

    Those dungarees are lovely. The bowls you got to place the Cath Kidson ones are fab. Probably a good thing they are now sold out or I would have some explaining to do.
