Atticus & Gilda – Luxury Nightwear and Accessories

October 17th, 2014



Atticus & Gilda has some of the most beautiful nightwear for kids I’ve ever seen! The sweet, retro quality of these outfits is just so adorable – especially love those touches like the bloomers and delicate little bows. This classical style of nightwear is what my girls go nuts over!

This label is very interesting as it’s the brainchild of  Lucy Gaiger and Conchita-Maria Scott. Both have fascinating careers alongside this labor of love in theatre, film and fashion, dressing stars such as Nicole Kidman, Helen Mirren and the cast of Mamma Mia just to mention a few! And all the trimmings in this nightwear were picked up along their theatrical travels so there’s a little bit of history in each garment.

Some of the pieces for the boys can be worn during the day. Scroll down!

And they are also producing luxury accessories like these absolutely gorgeous capes. Check out these other capes with exquisite embroidery and appliqué! Also, they have such sweet cushions and are growing the range all the time.

DIY Clay Stamped Magnets

October 15th, 2014




These wonderful DIY clay magnets are next on our crafting agenda. So effective with the beautiful inked stamps and not too difficult. No more difficult than making Christmas cookies! I’m thinking you could also make buttons out of these if you just poke two holes in the middle of each. Go to Gathering Beauty for full instructions!

The Fableists – Sustainable British Fashion

October 14th, 2014


Check out this fairly new British brand, The Fableists. The name is a blend of:  

[ fable + activitist ] Fable – a short story with a moral, Activist – Someone with a rebellious spirit who makes positive change happen

The Fableist look is based heavily on old school utilitarian work-wear and classic vintage clothing. And the label has no seasons. They’re designed to be worn all year round by both boys and girls. They are made to be passed on to someone else when they’re outgrown and even come with their own passport so you can track where they’ve been. That’s cool.

And they are course,  sustainable every  step of the way. And watch their very sweet video below.

Vintage Paper Butterflies

October 10th, 2014


These paper butterflies have me obsessed. We have been making various types of paper butterflies for a while now and are creating a theme wall with them but these are so interesting! Made from layers of books pages, vintage sheet music, silk paper, and various other papers, the first series has the Seven Capital Sins written on them and the series below has sentiments and feelings.
Even though these look amazing, they wouldn’t be very difficult to make. We are going to go for it! Keep Reading…
