Iota Illustration baby vests

Iota Illustration baby vest Sunshine

We’ve recognised the hotness of Oxford-based Oliver Lake’s prints in the past and now you can put them on your baby as well as your walls. Hurrah! Seventeen of Lake’s designs have found their way onto American Apparel short-sleeved vests in four sizes (3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, 18-24 months) using digital inkjet printing that won’t crack after washing.

New Ferm Living amazingness

Ferm Living Mountain Friends

I don’t think Danish company Ferm Living have ever created anything I don’t like. The new spring/summer collection is no exception – it is super-fabulous. There are two gorgeous faux-naive illustrated designs – Mountain Friends, top, and In the Rain, below – emblazoned on wallpaper, bedding and cushions, plus the frankly divine Olivia the owl, […]

Wonderland collection at Plantation Rug Company

Owl rug at Plantation Rugs

How fabulous are these rugs? They form part of the new Wonderland collection from Plantation Rug Company, which also features a big version of the owl, blue and pink owls and the tree with the owl’s eyes peeping out. All would look equally gorgeous adorning your little one’s floor, but I’m particularly fond of the big […]

Make Your Own: Owl Invitations

Make Your Own

I had a big plan for today’s post (which will just have to wait until later) but when I saw these cute as a button owl party invites I just had to share them with you right away. If you’re not familiar with Natasha of Nevie-Pie Cakes then let me introduce you. Natasha is a […]

New Moccis designs

Moccis Lion

Hard to imagine during our mini heatwave, but the season of chilly tootsies is almost upon us. Here at BG, we don’t do cold feet, we do Moccis instead. We are huge fans of the ultra-toastie yet cool Swedish moccasins and so I was super-excited to spot that they have new designs in the shop. […]

Santoro Patchpops 3D cards

Patchpops owl

My sister-in-law recently bought one of these for Alfie and he loves it, so I had to share. Santoro’s Patchpops are flatpack greeting cards your child can push out and put together themselves. There’s space for a short message and an envelope inside the pack. There are nine designs to choose from – including elephants, […]

Owls at Lindex


None of you can have failed to notice that we at BG are completely owl crazy. Now, I’m pleased to announce, Swedish superstore Lindex has followed suit. The latest additions to the baby section are these utterly adorable long-sleeved bodysuits in five colours – stock up now for winter as they’re €8.95 each and on […]

Leaf Peepers foil print by Graham Carter

Leaf Peepers print by Graham Carter

Owls! Shiny owls! I’m completely head over heels with this amazingly gorgeous piece of artwork by Graham Carter. One of his latest series of hot foil silkscreen printed pieces (others include a panda made up of birds, bears fishing and yetis hibernating), it is a limited-edition of 100 and also comes in red. I adore […]

Owls of the British Isles wallpaper


A great spot by Kat, this Owls of the British Isles wallpaper is part of the debut collection by interiors stylist and former Deputy Decorating Editor of Country Homes & Interiors magazine, Abigail Edwards. Hand drawn and taking inspiration from her childhood, it features ten different types of owl for a spot pure owl geekery. […]

Club Geluk


You know sometimes you find an online boutique where you want EVERYTHING? Well, say hello to Club Geluk, a Dutch label I happened upon while researching last week’s woodland theme post. I featured their super-cute duvet cover, but I couldn’t keep all the other goodies to myself, so here’s my pick of the current collection. […]

Iota Illustration Prints


Happy Valentine’s Day! I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce my latest love, Iota Illustration. My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I spotted artist Oliver Lake’s work on Etsy, largely due to the immense number of owls involved (see the too-amazing-for-words Owls in Outfits, below). But it was typographical print Read […]

41 Orchard wall stickers


We’re big fans of wall stickers as an affordable and easy way to update your child’s room decor, but unfortunately they don’t always live up to the hype. I’ve suffered peeling corners (scruffy), ripping (tear-inducing) and damage to paintwork (just plain annoying). Another hit from our friends Down Under, 41 Orchard wall stickers seem to […]



There’s something about Finnish design at the moment. Last week, I happened upon Muru, this week I found Aarrekid, an astoundingly cool label for kids. The Enchanted Forest and Space Travel prints are awesome and can be found on leggings, pinafore dresses, above, £33.07, long-sleeved tops and baby beanies, plus there are great black separates, always […]
