Darling Bud No. 2

Super excited as I can announce I am expecting my second little darling, due in December! I have gone a little bit crazy with all the beautiful baby and children's clothing, toys and decor but am yet to decide whether or not to find out the gender!

Here are some beautiful baby things I just cant resist...

Just purchased this adorable vintage romper from Belle Heir

Absolutely adorable knitted Pom Pom socks from Seed

Loving the cable knit blanket in gorgeous neutrals from Seed

This nappy bag from Seed  is lovely, although I already have two!

The Silver Cross Sleepover Pram in limited edition Pearl, love it!

Have a lovely day, Penelope xx

Lovely Linens...

From the lovely Cottage and Cabin Shop

I have yet to come across any linen cot sets in Australia, they will definately be stocked in my shop as I think they are just divine! Soft, and ruffly, with that relaxed natural perfection suited to the most littlest of darlings. I have featured some of my favourites above, hope you love them as much as me!

Would you use linen bedding for you little darling?

Perfectly Vintage...

I adore adore adore anything that mixes vintage and floral and these beautiful fabrics from Christina Strutt's Cabbages and Roses range are just gorgeous...The possibilities are endless and although I am always attracted to these types of fabrics for decor, I am thinking that some little vintage style playsuits with matching bonnets in this fabric range would be just adorable for a darling bud! And the Cabbages and Roses ship print fabric would be lovely for a little nautical playsuit for boys!

What do you think about vintage florals and prints for your little darling?

One for the boys...

Adoring the Autumn - Winter 2011 range from Australian brand Seed Child. The range for boys is delightful, perfect for a day of outdoor exploration. I always wanted to give my children a Famous Five style upbringing, filled with endless days spent outdoors, moutains of picnic food and of course plenty of adventure! I think the Seed range is perfectly matched - I have lots on my wish list for my little darling man Rafferty, although he would be more than happy running around outside in the buff!

Do your little darlings love the outdoors?
