Came across these adorable creations in Mandrake and Willow - a cute little shop in Yarraville, Melbourne (worth a look if you're in the area).

Cat-Rabbit is a Tasmanian-based artist who is, according to her website, "often seen bleeding from the fingers whilst looking at kittens in a pet store window."

Each little creature is hand-made, without a pattern, so no two are the same. Imagine that, all one off originals!

You will also find some of Cat-Rabbit's illustrations in her Etsy store - adorable!

Love this little guy!

I just posted a couple of my favourites, but visit Cat-Rabbit's Etsy Store to see a whole lot more.
You will also find a list of bricks and mortar stockists here.

Our Favourite Tree

One of my favourite parts of the day is walking my kids to school in the morning (and that's not just because I get to leave them there until 3.30!).
The kids run ahead and knock on my mum's door. Mum whips her hair into a messy plait and she and her beautiful blue heeler, Star, join us for the walk.
Our journey takes us across the local creek, and on the way we pass this beautiful little tree.

My littlest fella and his neighbourhood pal decided to make a close inspection of the beautiful blossoms.

Such a nice way to start the day!

Belle Heir Vintage Clothing

Came across Belle Heir whilst flicking through the pages of Papier Mache Magazine (one of my absolute favourites - I could get lost looking at it's pages for hours) and it was instant LOVE!!

Belle Heir was created out of a love of fine vintage and an appreciation of the detail that once went into the construction of clothing.

Here are a few of the pieces that I would love to own for my own little lambs.

The Belle Heir online shop offers unique vintage finds in sizes for newborns up to five year olds.

I'm sure you'll agree that their pieces are one-of-a-kind keepsakes that will be treasured forever.
