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?
