One Mums Imagination

My lovely friend Jess Dabro from the fabulous and creative blog Little Cricket recently sent me an email titled 'One Mum's Imagination' When I opened it I was delighted to see the amazing work of Adele Enerson from Mila's Daydreams. While her daughter Mila sleeps Adele creates these fabulous photos. I hope you enjoy them.

Shopping Blue Caravan

Blue Caravan is a great Australian website that features ethically made and sourced products from around the world. I thought It would be nice to feature some great products I have discovered on this site. These are some of the things on my Christmas list this year:

For Jasper - Organic Hemp Baby Boots

These baby boots by Bobka Baby are made in organic hemp linen and lined in hemp linen. They are hand embroidered in a rust allover grid pattern and there are natural shell buttons that hide the snap closure underneath. The soles are padded and the size 4 and 5 are non slip.

 For my Husband - Sea Machine T-Shirt

Every year I buy my Husband a T-shirt, it has become a tradition and each year I search the shops for the perfect T. This year with a lot less time and a baby in tow I am happy I have found this great T-shirt online by  STOC

For me - Spring Necklace - Earthtribe 

I love this necklace, I think it would look great with a simple black dress. I wear a lot of black so I always try to buy colourful accessories.

Once a Year Book - Laikonik

Okay I know this is two presents but I have to have one of these Once a Year books by Laikonik.
Insert just one photo per year (for 18 years) and add a brief description of that year on the corresponding page. Also included is a 'Chatter Book' which is a small notebook for keeping a record of the childs first words and funny sayings.
This is such a great way of capturing the changes in your children as they grow up.

More from Sri Lanka

While scouring Sri Lanka for amazing children's products I also stumbled upon these beautiful batik clothes for women and I just had to fill my suitcase with them. Each piece is handpainted in wax. The kaftans and skirts are silk and the swimwear is cotton/spandex.

I am selling these on Blue Caravan which is a great site for all things ethically made and produced. I hope you love this range let me know what you think.
