The last post for 2009!

Hooray! What a year it has been!

As many of you may know, I'll be taking a break from today until January 6th. I really, really need one, and think I have earned it this year.

I wish you and your families a very safe and happy Christmas and New Year, and I can't tell you how grateful I am for the support you all have shown me in 2009. I hope to hear from you all in 2010!

As the perfect ending to my year in blogs, here are two more gorgeous MiniLaLa babies:


and Tilly

Thanks to Eva and Tilly's Mummies for allowing me to show their gorgeous girls off!


See you next year x

Ho ho ho!

Want a great stocking stuffer? Well, I don't think you can beat our hair clip sets for girls of all ages - I love them! Plus there are 11 styles to choose from, so there is something to suit everyone.

We've just finished making lots and lots (I love seeing my glass bowls filled with pretty clips), so there are plenty to go 'round. Don't forget, buy 3 or more sets to save 10%!

My gorgeous kids!

Like all parents, I love to show my kids off, so here they are again running free in the botanic gardens yesterday.

Ivie refused to keep her hair clip in...

I tried to get a nice photo of them together, but once again, they proved that that is virtually impossible!

Here's Nicholas giving Ivie a kiss to cheer her up - he's such a lovely big brother.

And another cute photo of Nick for good measure.

Bless them!

...And even more stuff I like!

I'm really in the Christmas shopping mood at the moment, so here are a few more lovely shops and finds for you to check out...

I visited Magnolia Square (twice - once at Malvern, once at Brighton) this week, and as expected, came across some gorgeous things.

I love Polly & J's funky and whimsical jewellery
Pip Keane designs fantastic minimalistic pieces. There were lots more at the market than on the website. Simply divine!
I love the range availavle at We *heart* books. Really beautiful and special books

I also liked the cool Japanese items at Zakkaya. Nicholas loved this walking elephant

I loved the sweet and whimsical illustrations by Charlotte Lance

Aside from the markets, I have been spending time at one of my very favourite online stores, trying to decide what to get my sister - too many cool things! If you haven't discovered Birdsnest, I know you'll love it! I especially like that you can search by occasion, body type, and even personality.

Another shop I love is Leeloo - completely quirky.

Now, my very favourite thing this week, is this Lundby doll house - I really, really want one - for Ivie... no, for me! I fear that if I had one, I would spend all day rearranging the fantastic Swedish furniture and never get anything done!

Can you believe it's December already? Crazy!!

We set up our Christmas tree and advent calendar on Tuesday, and oh, what fun! I think it took about 3 hours as every decoration we put on was quickly swiped by little miss Ivie, haha!

It's now day three, and you can't see the top of the tree for decorations - but the bottom is completely empty. It will likely fall over before Christmas, but at least I'm not chasing after Ivie and her handfuls of baubles every five minutes!

I love the advent calendar (you may remember it from last year). The kids have such a ball with it! Day one's surprise was chocolate, much to Nick and Ivie's delight.

We have heaps of great surprises in there this year - I can't wait to see their faces tonight when they are directed to their Santa sacks to unveil sticker books!!

Win a gorgeous Posy Doll!

Yes, another chance to win a gorgeous one-of-a-kind Posy Doll. We have teamed up with Style Collective Junior, and will be giving away a beautiful doll to one lucky entrant. There are also some other great prizes.


You've gotta be in it....!
