Now it’s not very often we write about things as mundane as tissues on BG, but Atissu is worth a mention! Atissu is a new brand which has decided to make every day items a little more lovely and they’ve succeeded pretty well with their debut range of contemporary boxed tissues; my two have been all over […]
The super cool Reaching Rainbows print by Dallas Clayton is totally covetable. It’s a six-colour hand pulled silkscreen on Coventry Rag, 100% cotton archival paper. I adore it. It’s not cheap at $200 (that’s about £130) but consider it a future heirloom. Each one is signed and numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. It’ll […]
Lola’s asked for a science party “with real life potions” for her next birthday party. I know that’s a tall order so I’ve been hunting the internet for budget-friendly inspiration and have, of course, been pinning it all (see here). That’s how I came about Jay. Jay has some really cool mugs, plates, glasses, gift wrap, cards […]
The tooth fairy has been to visit Alfie twice, but she left empty handed each time – first tooth swallowed, second lost in Waitrose (yes, really). She still paid up though as we wrote a note explaining the unfortunate circumstances, but it must have been disappointing for her. I feel sure she wouldn’t be disappointed […]
I need one of these handmade wooden jars in my life. Designed by Copenhagen-based Studio Arhoj, the birdies are carved from sustainable princess wood and stand at 16cm (Little Bird, about £23) and 20cm (Big Bird, about £26) high. Ideal for a woodland-themed nursery (or my dressing table) and available from the always fabulous Acne Jr.
We zipped over to Firle Vintage Fair at the weekend (well worth checking out next year if you find yourself in Sussex) and my eyes were immediately drawn to a stall piled high with fabulous animal cushions. Brighton-based Maria Tilyard makes fantastical creatures from vintage fabrics and her creations range from the domestic […]
I love how the My First Alphabet Print from Little Letter Studio is illustrated. This original design by artist Jo Martin is taken from a collection of paintings which have been reproduced as a high-quality art print on archival paper, using lightfast inks to ensure durability. The alphabet is in upper and lower case and shows whimsical animals, […]
Back in 2011 Nat swooned over the star and moon cradle (such hotness!) from Crème Anglaise and now they’ve added to the theme with a range of furniture. There’s a cot bed, chest of drawers – available with 3 or 4 drawers – and a wardrobe. We’re all about the detail and these look beautiful. There are hidden handles and doors which […]
We have spotted some beautifully illustrated height charts from Valencia-based duo Guimo. They’re digitally printed on cotton canvas and come ready to hang, measuring in at 95x20cm. Along with the fabulous Cactus, there’s also Neighbours and Shapes. They look fab and they cost just £21 each, including UK shipping. Click click.
I recently squealed when I opened my mail to something fabulous and totally unexpected… It’s a unique fashion illustration of Lola based on her World Book Day costume – Angelina Ballerina – by the super talented and really lovely Lizzie Owen from Little Shop of Brands. My photos really do not do this justice at all. Note to self, […]
These Love Mae bamboo dinner sets are beautifully illustrated and their whimsical designs tick all the right boxes. They’re non-toxic, biodegradable, dishwasher safe and food safety approved. The set comprises 4 pieces: compartment plate, cup with handle, spoon and bowl. A great gift and perfect for camping! And best of all, we have spotted them on sale at Fox Organic Kids, £16 for the set. […]
