I’ve just become an auntie! (again!) …. I’m so excited … a new baby in the family is a wonderful gift.
Which gives me the perfect excuse for showcasing a small selection of handmade loveliness for the small people in our lives ….
Of course, when our little bundles of joy arrive, we want to tell everyone all about it … these wondeful birth announcement cards from The Spotted Sparrow make a nice change from teddy bears and pink butterflies
I’ve been a huge fan of MooCowHandKnits over on Etsy for a couple of years now … I could quite happily clear out her shop. So I’m particularly thrilled that she’s now got MooCowBabyKnits – wonderful, snuggly style for small people. This oatmeal cardigan (and the matching booties that I couldn’t resist) would make the perfect gift:
I met Katie Stewart of Hearts and Wings at the Medicine Garden craft fair a couple of months ago, and simply adore her quirky and beautiful pictures. I thought this one would look perfect in a baby boy’s nursery ….
For something practical, beautiful, and totally custom-made for that new and unique little person, Shabby Neesy Quilts over on Folksy is all sorts of wonderful … I love these custom-made quilts for babies:
And for heart-melting cuteness, I couldn’t resist including Cazhoffy’s super-wondeful whale-print baby booties:
Now for the tricky part …. deciding which one to actually choose!
