Last week we took advantage of a spot of sun -- before the westerly winds started up -- and headed out to our fave park. It was a bit chilly but miss lady was more than happy to scoot around on our new giant picnic rug. It's actually a bedspread that I have repurposed for giant picnics. Hoorah!
My ma's friend Caroll made this little '50s style baby jacket and hat for the lady. Aren't they adorable? We have received so many lovely gifts and handmade items for the lady, the preschooler and also the teen, (many years ago). While I'm terrible at formal thank-you's I feel truly grateful for each and every gesture.
As you can see this lady is on the move. She wanted to crawl right off the giant picnic rug and dig in the dirt.
p.s I have also opened a tiny Etsy Store. I love hunting for vintage goodies but my home is bursting at the seams (or so the man feels ;) so I am going to share them with you! If you fancy a vintage item or two from down Sydney way, I plan to add more items over the next few months so stay tuned :)
Do you love giving handmade goodies to new babies? I love giving baby gifts. Or do you have a fave handmade item that was gifted to your wee ones? I'd love to hear.
