It’s made from wool and felt and comes with a bright orange ribbon tie. We’re huge fans here, and it’s a steal at £13. All together now, […]
Let a lengthy tusk, a spindly mane or a trailing tailÂ be home to your treasures with these fabulous phyla animal hooks fromÂ Anthropologie. They’re made of iron, measure in at 17.7cm and 18.4cm tall and cost just Â£12 each.
You know we love a good print here on BG, so it’s no surprise my heart did a little flutter when I spotted Copenhagen based designer/illustrator Sofie BÃ¸rsting’sÂ LionÂ and Mimi’s CircusÂ posters. They are beautifully illustrated, I adore the whimsical style. The posters are 50cm x 70cm so perfect for those Ikea Ribba frames and are printed […]
Remember these! I used to love them! If you want to introduce these beauties to you little ones, then head over to Moon Kids who have this fab lion printable. Much better than my lame attempts for sure. Don’t worry, they also have the foldingÂ instructions! Enjoy!
I’ve got a lot of pregnant friends at the moment, so I’m always on the lookout for cool gifts. This heirloom lion blanket I spotted on Etsy is probably a teensy bit on the expensive side (sorry, ladies, times are tough) but I do so love it. It’s hand-painted cotton muslin and likely to become […]
Oh my. If you’re looking for a cool, homemade but simple to do dress up outfit for your little one, you need to check out theÂ DIY Wee Alphas. They’re so easy, assuming you can get hold of some paper bags, especially as you can download the ‘how to’ pdfs for fantastically frightful fox, the jovial […]
When we BG ladies saw these cushions from Becky BaurÂ we wereÂ immediatelyÂ gushing about how gorgeous they were! Not that we should expect anything less; both Lu and I have featured her cushion collections before! These ones are part of the zoo collection and are made fromÂ Killary linen. They measure in at 32 x 32 cm and […]
I am loving the new range in at Jonathan Adler, particularly the porcelain money boxes featuring a lionÂ and elephant. TheyÂ are Â£78 each – not cheap, but a lovely, well-designed keepsake. The printed canvas accent pillows complement perfectly and come complete with a feather/down insert. There is a lion, elephant and owl available at Â£38 each.
Peskimo (aka Jodie and David) just keep on producing delightful designs, perfect for little ones’ rooms. Who wouldn’t fall immediately head over heels for Dudley, the extremely friendly-looking lion with a mane of leaves. He’s screen-printed in bold red and green onto A5 recycled card. The print is a mere Â£8, but a limited-edition of […]
I am a lover of wall art in children’s spaces, so when I spotted the simple but gloriousÂ Royal SafariÂ set of prints from LittleLion StudioÂ it was a struggle not to click, click, spend.Â You getÂ four unframed prints – there are a few different sizes available. Ranging from Â£48 for the set to Â£80. They’re printed on recycled […]
Loving the animal designs over at California-based screenprinters Sass & Peril (great name, too). Each item is hand-printed using non-toxic inks onto natural materials so you can rest assured they’re safe for your child. In the Etsy store you’ll find a host of unusual cards, artworks (I love this lion on wood, about Â£18, top), […]
I think this is possibly my favourite thing I’ve ever found for BG. Not only is he drop-dead gorgeous, Laurie the Lion has fantastic ethical credentials – he’s hand made in Columbia from cotton and ‘shipped slowly by sea to Cornwall’, clocking up zero air miles. If his looks and funky dreadlocked mane seem a […]
Two new limited edition screen prints from Jane Foster have just been released. A lion and an elephant both in Jane’s distinctive style are available in a limited run of 200 each. Each print is A3 size, hand printed and signed by the artist. I’m digging the lion especially after someone commented on her blog […]
