I love when artists collaborate and create beautiful stories with all of their talents. So, of course I was thrilled to find this spread of Little Birds on Milk Magazine. With gorgeous dresses depicting birds by Danielle Wilson, this creative team made this world of whimsical flamingos, swans, peacocks and parrots.

Quis Quis is the brainchild of Italian designer, Stefano Cavalleri who also founded I Pinco Pallino. Quis Quis is ornate, fine Italian design at its best. The lace work and embroidery in the dresses above is extraordinary. The girls’ range is more extended than the boys and does include some more casual play clothes that Mama won’t be too worried about ruining! But there are some very classic summer suits like the blue one (see below) that makes a gentleman out of your little man!
Stefano has another label that he started recently called From the World which is more ethnic inspired.
Make sure you watch the beautiful and dreamy short film of this collection, (below), of Summer Fairy Garden, directed by Mauro Balletti shot in the Italian countryside and in the gardens of Villa Barbarigo Pizzoni Ardemani featuring QuisQuis Spring Summer 2015 collection.

I think I would love these Lemon Meringue Cupcakes way more than a Lemon Meringue pie! But here’s a warning: this is not one of my quick and easy recipes – but totally worth the work! These just take the average Lemon Meringue Cupcake to another whole level.
Get the whole recipe right here and make sure you save one for me!
And have a beautiful weekend!

I just discovered this Swedish and very wonderful kid’s fashion photographer named Malin Ngoie who hails from the UK. She has a theatricality and real talent with storytelling. After completing an HND in Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion and later a photography degree in Reading, she now specializes in Children’s Fashion Photography and has shot many, many of the top kidswear labels.
See her great site to get a look at all she does!

Caramel Baby and Child, has just launched their first collection for the home! This beautiful English label is well known for high quality, exquisite garments for kids and now has come up with their debut selection employing soft colors teamed with richer jewel tones.
It’s retro, yet undeniably modern at the same time. Japanese fabrics are used for their duvets and there is a luxurious mix of angora and silk, which is not only gorgeous but comfortable. Also in the mix are a line of sweet nightgowns and pajamas, and bibs and of course those floral cushions. And love that very traditional monogramming they have employed. So English!

Fuko Handmade from Japan makes the most adorable basics for baby! I don’t know much about this label except that I like what they, do and they are handmade.
Take a look at the Fuko handmade site and click around on the links – you will discover other lovely garments they make! I wish I understood Japanese so I could tell you more about them.

These dolls by Alice Mary Lynch have attitude and the most exquisite detail. I am enamored of her fancy hares and cats in the finest attire.
A former designer for Sonia Rykiel, John Galliano and Christian Dior, she honed her craft of beading embroidery and embellishment in their studios. And once she became a Mama decided to focus on dolls which are inspired by dreams, cabaret sparkle and the strangeness of nature.
‘Armoured with glass beads, crystals and talismen, they are glittering little warriors, watching out for us in the real world.

I thought it was about time I devoted a post to just cushions! The imaginativeness that I see with cushions these days is so fun and unexpected. I never thought I would see a cushion of a slice of cherry pie…and there you have it. That comes to us from Artgoodies. The cushions below by Broderpress are also pretty unexpected and funky. The eggs and bacon are too much!
