The book Elsie and I are loving this week is called ‘I dreamt I was a dinosaur’ by Stella Blackstone and illustrated by Clare Beaton…

Each page is so cute!

Clare uses felt and a collection of vintage buttons, sequins and ribbons to create her lovely hand stitched designs.

Also Elsie enjoys finding the snail hidden on each page!

Gorgeous 🙂

Creative sister No.1


Ever since starting my blog I’ve been meaning to share with you the amazing mobile my eldest sister, Laura, made for Elsie.  I look at it each morning and evening as it hangs above Elsie’s cot and marvel at its beauty and the skill that has gone in to making it.

Elsie loves it just as much as me.

I love all the fabrics Laura choose…

Just gorgeous!

Thanks Aunty Laura, you are amazing!
