ADVENTURE IN THE WOODS /// LITTLE CREATIVE FACTORY






Hi there dear Friends! Mr. P and I have been away from the blogging for a spell, as sometimes life creates new ways to challenge and test the resiliency of its participants. I am very happy to be back on the train doing what I love most, which is hanging out with my sweet babe and testing out the best of the best in children's fashion!

We are very much still in the thick of winter in upstate NY with temperatures in the single digits and feeling much like a frozen tundra!

On this particular very sunny but windy Sunday my darling one and I decided that we were going to get out and have an "forest adventure" . There is a park conservatory right outside of town, and I thought we'd be brave and walk a trail! 

I have written a little piece about the very sweet and forward thinking brand Little Creative Factory here. We received this winter ensemble in November and have had much use from all of the items. P looks so proper and most importantly he is warm. The tube scarf is the best and the fleece lining on this amazing coat keeps him all kinds of cozy warm. 

We made it about a mile down the path until we hit the "yellow trail". The wind was whipping and while he wasn't going to say he was ready to go home, as he was aiming to walk all the way to the mountains, I  explained that it was indeed too cold to walk any further and we would have to come back another time. Most likely next weekend because we are brave and are always up for a challenge ;)

Be well my friends, and yes if you are having winter now in your part of the world stay warm. If you are at the beach somewhere however then I am indeed a little jealous!
Come on Spring!!

Peace and love from the North East.

FIRST BABY SHOES // MAKE YOUR OWN SUPER CUTE LITTLE BABY SHOES



I was asked if i wanted to try to sew a pair of baby shoes from First baby shoes: a polish concept that is not only adorable but fun and amazing quality as well. I love making things myself and figured I'd give it a go.
I sewed the shoes in 1 hour, but that is because I touch a needle and thread once a year: if I did this again it would take me about 30 minutes. 
I accidentally started inside out and found I kinda liked it so I actually made suede shoes when they were supposed to be yellow leather shoes. They still look fabulous and I must say again, the leather is absolutely wondefully soft: like a teddy bear!!

I took some pictures during my little diy sesh: just to share how its done:

A perfect gift for a baby shower or a friends newborn baby. Absolutely wonderful.

If you have any questions re these shoes, please look here:::
Or ask me in the comments :)

FEATHER DRUM SS15 // LOST OASIS // ONE TO WATCH






Feather Drum truly captured our hearts ::LAST SEASON:: and the love for this beautiful Sydney brand just keeps growing. Not only is the lady behind the brand an amazingly talented and creative soul, she is also a perfectionist with an eye for the teeniest of details. All this shines through in every collection and LOST OASIS SS15 has been no exception. Personally I just fell head over heels for the STONE ROSE print and decided to dress the kids in the same print: It is just so incredibly beautiful! The print was inspired by an old couch, can you believe it?? Beyond fabulous! 
The skirt is incredible! The length is perfect for a little girl who loves to move! You can climb and jump freely! A skirt that does not make moving harder: YES PLEASE! The top is just the most amazing little thing! The details and fabric is so beautiful: The cut is just stunning and the fit is perfection! The jumpsuit is also so unique and beautiful, that if you asked me to choose a favourite piece, I simply couldn't. The thin cotton fabric is so perfect for those balmy summer night. 
Mr C's organic tee and shorts have the best fit, and he absolutely LOVES them so much that getting them off was impossible and he slept in them the whole night through. 
(Lets not talk about the sand in the bed the next morning.......)

We took the kids up to NELSON BAY in NSW. We drove to a couple of amazing locations and had a blast! Rockpools and beaches is our life these days: we learn so much and have the best time: Climbing, jumping, running, rolling, sometimes falling, skipping and sliding. 
We found starfish and crabs, sticks and stones, shells and sponges. 
And with the kids in their absolute element, I got some amazing shots that I am so happy to share with you now. 

I hope you will love this little adventure in these incredible Feather Drum pieces as I wish Kelly a most spectacular time and best of luck at playtime NYC 2015. 


xoxo
