A smiley little tiger is welcome to pop round for tea anytime. A cunning fox disguise. A bear with on-point eyeliner. And a deer you’ll be fawning (sorry!) over. These are the fabulous hand-painted animal masks we have just started stocking in our store. A wonderful idea for favours for children’s woodland parties, for the dressing up box or […]
We often find ourselves wishing that children’s designers would make grown-up versions, so we were delighted when BG fave Tootsa MacGinty released their iconic fox sweater in adult sizes a while back. Now, the unisex Kelly Green Fox sweater is half price over at Juicy Tots (purveyor of gorgeous children’s clothing ranges from some fabulous independent brands) […]
We recently spotted Brightonian Lesley Bissker’s lamp bases at one the ever-so-fabulousÂ Hunky Dory Home and we’re now obsessing! The lamps are made fromÂ high quality birch ply and each isÂ a whimsical one-off Â with a different design painted on the front and on the reverse. Mr Fox is brilliant!
Scattered with polar bears, foxes and moose, this sleepsuit and hat set by John Lewis Baby would make a wonderful gift for a winter baby. Loving the deep blue background, too. Available in sizes from Tiny Baby to 12 months, Â£14.
We have a lot of love for foxes this week. How cute is this scarf and mittens set from M&S? And they are cashmere, so ultra-soft for your little fox fan’s skin. And they come in a box, so make the perfect gift, Â£30.
Loving this little foxy zipped change purse from Paperchase and will definitely be picking up a few for my pressie box. A great little gift for girls or boys, it costs just Â£6 and is part of the rather fabulous Woodland Adventure range, which also features a matching tote bag, Â£18, an owl backpack, Â£20, […]
Ah, foxes. Despite their often unsavoury habits, our love affair with their image on children’s clothing continues apace. What can I say? They really are fantastic. I uncovered a glut of new foxy fashion finds… Maxomorra Foxes organic cotton One Piece, Â£30, KyNa Boutique. Another amazing print from Maxomorra, teamed with a mustard trim? Yes, […]
Quirky lifestyle boutique Smug is one of my favourite shopping destinations and their selection of soft toys is particularly fabulous. You’ll find an assortment of animals, including turtles, geese and polar bears, made from vintage jumpers, Â£35 each; sari elephants, rabbits and bears, Â£22 each, a crochet menagerie including super-cute Lucas the fox, Â£32 each, […]
Despite the recent unpleasantness in the news, we still love a fox motif here at BG and this lampshade by Love FrankieÂ ticks a lot of boxes with its mustard and grey palette and the long-nosed, pointy eared vulpine. From Â£45 for a 35cm diameter – available in lamp or ceiling format. Perfect for that woodland-themed […]
I do love a cute animal character and Adatine‘s creatures have character by the bucketload. Choose from a veritable menagerie, from narwhal to goose, all handcrafted from linen and hand-embroidered in Vilnius, Lithuania. I’m more than a little in love with the elephant with his braces and britches, top, about Â£20.50, and the brave little […]
Loving Zeena Shah‘s designs, particularly the bird, owl and fox cushions, from Â£20, which would be fantastic in a child’s room. Yes, that’s right, another owl cushion and no, I’m not apologising for it. There are also amazing printed sticky tapes and wrapping papers, ideal for Christmas. FYI, the fox is called Owen, the big […]
My love of owls is such that I sometimes find myself just typing ‘owls’ into the search bar of Etsy or Pinterest of an evening. One such occasion revealed the divine Hootenanny Owl (above), a print from Inaluxe, aka Australia-based design duo Kristina Sostarko and Jason Odd. This little giclee beauty is apparently getting ready […]
I’ve been a big fan of Brighton based design company Mibo’s paper animal sets so when Lu and I spotted them adorning 100% GOTS certified organic t-shirts (we featured these back in April when they landed at Shak Shuka) along with backpacks, giant bibs, and shoulder bags at Bubble the kids fashion trade show back […]
I love it when Ikea get things right, and this woodland theme bedding setÂ from Ikea is lovely. The reverse side is a brown stripe, a perfect compliment.Â It’s 100% cotton and a steal at Â£17.50. There are other items available in the range too including a set of two soft fox toys which are just […]
I’m planning a vaguely woodland themed nursery this time around and this cushion is definitely a contender. I love the symmetry of the pattern (not to mention the awesome orange foxes). Also available in navy, the cushion is 100% linen and costs Â£28.50 including cushion from the treasure trove that is Â Howkapow. While you’re on […]
