Big Kid Beds for Little Dreamers

Ahh the joys of toddlers....constant chatting, newfound climbing skills, the new and not so wonderful world of tantrums, cheeky grins, gorgeous cuddles and of course the inevitable move to a big kids bed. Whilst our little lovelys are still sleeping in their cots we've been chatting alot lately about when and how to make the move to a big kid's bed and importantly how to dress their beds!

This and a flood of enquiries have sparked us to add the single bed sized quilts to our range of baby and now toddler bedding. So, now you can order any of the gorgeous quilts you see featured on our website in single bed size. The quilts are $299 and are 100% cotton, filled with organic cotton batting and are a lighter option for little ones than a quilt cover and insert. We're interested to hear how you made the move from cot to single bed and also, what do you make of the popular toddler sized beds? Are they a good tool for transitioning to the bigger bed or an unnecessary yet very cute expense?

Our first stockist....... The Enchanted Closet

We were very excited this week to send our first (hopefully one of many) packages to The Enchanted Closet in Melbourne, thanks Mia. This is the first B&M stockist of the Ani and Trio range, can't wait to see how it goes. The Enchanted Closet are opening their 2nd store at High St Armadale, Melbourne any day now good luck!

Thanks to Kristy and Dan for snapping our products for us.

Buttons, Buttons and more Buttons .....

In the quest to find someone to make the 40 covered buttons needed for my sisters wedding dress I came across Lucy at All Buttons Great and Small. What an amazing service and great quality, worth a look if you're on the hunt for the perfect button.

Mathilda Markets and Moochie-Moo

Thank you all for a great day at Mathilda Markets on Sunday it was great to see so many people and such a great range of products. This is the 3rd Market we have done and I think the best so far, hopefully November will be bigger and better.

I thought I would share with you my new purchase from the Market, it is a blow up Moose, that I fell in love with from Moochie-Moo. Their stall was across from us and I couldn't resist! My 18mth old is not sure what to make of him, she carries him around like a teddy. And the other great thing is that it is blow up and comes with its own pump, great for storage.

Promo Cubes

Here are some promotional cubes we made with our new fabrics and they have little bells in them, very cute!!

devine inspiration

At the moment we're working on our new collection, this is an exciting time and for us, it's the most fun part of what we do. It's a time when we can let our imaginations run wild and it's a good excuse for cutting out snippets from magazines, collecting postcards and bits of fabric that we love. It either goes one of two ways 1)We discuss, plan, trawl through swatches and swatches of fabric, visit and revisit shops and then finally it all comes together and Anita does her thing and the result is a gorgeous baby quilt or 2) we recklessly stumble across a stand out fabric and everything else just falls into place. Some of the things that are inspiring us right now include starlings, fire engine red and duck egg blue together, the 'I want to be in America' dresses in West Side Story, Finnish fabrics on the nord living website and combinations of aqua and chocolate. Plus chocolate. Let us know what's inspiring you.

Mathilda's Markets

We love taking part in Mathilda's Markets and Melbourne's latest was no exception. Hawthorne town hall was a gorgeous location and dedicated mums, dads, kids, grandparents and friends packed the place out. There was a good variety of stall holders too and some really gorgeous kids goodies on offer. We had a successful day, we found that we sold lots of our mini quilts (which are a great size for the first year and really portable). As a result we have some new mini quilts on offer on our website and we'll make them part of our next collection, due out May/June.

New Collection

Is it really April already? We have been furiously working on our new collection of baby bedding which is due out May/June and features some beautiful new fabrics, plenty of vibrant colours and will be available in a variety of sizes including cot, crib, stroller and even available in singles for your child's first big bed! Our summer collection is still available from our site, here's one of our favourites, Secret Garden.
