It's a wrap !

The weather has turned  down south here in Australia and quite often you find yourself needing a warm , easy to launder and versatile blanket for a baby or  toddler.

Our blankets have been designed and made to fit all of the above needs . Drawing from my own personal experience as a mother I found it hard to find the perfect knitted blanket and these are some of the qualities I was looking for and our new blankets now have :

- Can be a great stroller blanket . We had one of our blankets that stayed in the car . It worked for all different purposes a change matt when I got desperate. A blanket to shade the sun , a warm pusher blanket that also looks good and a warm blanket to wrap over the babies when they have fallen asleep from the winter cold in their car seat .

- A great cot blanket . The size of our blanket even works well over the foot of the cot when the babies are small .

- 100% cotton . I needed a blanket that when it was warm did not itch my babies skin . My oldest child got eczema and still does so I needed something that would be gentle on his skin and not irritate the condition .
- Easy to Launder . A huge selling point for me . Our blanket can be washed on a wool cycle in the machine and launder up looking like new . This was a huge benefit especially with all the extra washing a baby has.

- Wrapping . These blankets are the perfect wrapping size and they also have a little stretch .

If you have one of our blankets I would love to hear your feedback . We are super excited about these well designed and practical blankets and the make the perfect new born present with this colder weather .

A museum visit

Happy Monday !

Hope you had a fabulous weekend . We managed to squeeze a museum visit in this weekend  in between dropping off our summer range to be photographed and moving warehouse . We have been putting in some huge hours , lots of midnight finishes after the kids go to bed . I cannot recommend the Melbourne Museum more highly both our boys aged 4yrs  and 2yrs  really got in to it . Our 4 year old has had a constant and growing fascination for dinosaurs and all  marine life  so was great for him to see the actual size of some of the animals. It also got the creative juices going for me and our next Winter 14 range which we are starting to work on in the coming weeks.  Was great to get out on a family outing after a long week and to be honest it caught me by surprise just how much our two year old loved it .

Thank you

I cannot tell you what a joy it is to open your inbox and hear from one of our customer's . Good or bad we love your feedback so keep it coming . One particular lady made my day when she sent through a beautiful email about our products and also how they where being used . Sarah informed me that she was using our floor matt to take weekly photos of her baby Adison and the circles on the matt where making it easier to see how quickly she was growing . I thought this was a great idea and a beautiful keepsake for Adison to keep when she is older . Thank you to Sarah for sharing these beautiful photos and what a beautiful nursery Adison has.

I love kids room and am obsessed with small things for small people . Not sure what will happen after all my kids grow up and leave . When putting our ranges together we I often visualise the products in a room . I love a clashing and eclectic room filled with old and new and not all matching . What are your favourite colours and styles ?
