loving pyjamas....

I received news from The Present Cupboard this morning about the review they have done on our Cloud cuckoo pyjamas
ranging from the 0-3 month organic bundlers, 3-12 month jersey organic jim-jams and upto 4 years for the organic woven pyjamas as shown here.

Getting into our cosy jim-jams is just great, I loved it when I was little and still today, nowadays though they are not the red muppet ones I recall from my childhood memories.

Kiddie jim-jams are getting better whatever the look you're going for, great qualities, practical and easy to pop on and also fantastic graphics.
Here are a few of my favourites for our little ones at the moment.

Boden with these gorgeous simple blue and white star pj's, great always soft & cosy, clean and simple lines.

Fantastic online store Snugg Nightwear have a wonderful range as you can imagine, dedicating their store to nightwear. These spring allover print bird Pj's are just adorable and upto age 7 too. Please click over to their site to see great images and full range.

Milliemanu use beautiful Liberty prints in this girls PJ set, what I love is they go from 12 months to 5 years and made in the UK
If you like the Liberty prints check out Zara kids too (link below)

Plenty more if these are getting you ready for dreamtime at greenbaby , piquant baby little white company

All this pyjama talk is making snoozy, night night (mmmmmm, i know I'm a little earlier!)

Flowers, John Lewis, World of Moose, pegs and more....

I just love flowers, any day, everyday or on a special day.
This year I'm thrilled and helped out by John Lewis as they can deliver flowers on Sunday, so if you can't get to see your mum, nan, friend on Mothers Day this is a great option and with so many beautiful flowers to pick from everyone will be smiling.

World Of Moose have gorgeous flowers that you can keep forever....

By Gorgeous at NOTHS have a lovely floral gift, this floral bag will bring a cheeriness to one of those mum jobs; 'pegging out', but pegging out on a sunny morning with this great bag is a happy to do mum job!

Mothers Day

With Mothers Day only a few days away here are a few ideas, there is time if you're quick.

Help get mum ready for relaxing on those sunny days with gorgeous deckchair from Thornback and Peel

Bringing Mum a lovely cuppa tea in a very special mug would make Mothers day special every day, these great mugs can have your own image popped on, what a great way to use your little ones drawings, available from The Handmade Mug Company

Sweet Dimple at NOTHS have these framed apple pictures and more, I'd be a very happy momma on mothers day with one of these.

Another lovely find at NOTHS is Tea & Ceremony with this fab "I'm A Knitter" notebook maybe Nanna would like one of these too

So best mums everywhere get ready for a truly special Mothering Sunday, happy days 'Best Mum' from Cloud Cuckoo Designs

it's raining it's pouring..

Only yesterday we had glorious sunshine, now we have rain. The rain can make us smile too though and so can these lovely rain themed images.

Sunshine and Light

With the clocks changing this weekend, we are having a few bedtime hiccups with the little ones.
Maude appears to be ruled by the light, "sun come up, hello morning, then sun go down and moon come up; bedtime". Her little phrase was not good when it came to her 7pm bed time!
So just for her I'd like to share some beautiful sunny illustrations.

here are the illustrator links:

new baby cards & little Orla

There is no better time to share our super 'new baby' cards than now as it is in timing with the arrival of my niece born yesterday on the first day of spring.
It does get better as she has a name I am very fond of in more ways then one 'Orla' so I'd like to say welcome to baby Orla and a big congrats to the very proud (tired) mummy and daddy.
Here are some of our cards for 'new baby' and baby announcement cards.
To see the full 'Just To Say' range pop over to the website

East Dulwich for Colour (Siecle & Cable)

As a resident of East Dulwich for many years i was chuffed when this small tired shop on Grove Vale transformed into a Siecle Paint Shop , a happy shop, where the colour inside will make you happy.
Not only can you go in chat to Simon and have an amazing range of colours to pick from you can also buy Coloured Cable
There have been times when I've been unable to make up my mind, fickle I have been heard a certain someone say, well if this is happening to you regarding lighting; ceiling, wall, floor, table light and you just cannot decide then this is what you should get...

this light on a cable can be positioned on a wall, hooked from the ceiling, along the floor, on a table and just looks amazing in these gorgeous colours.
The hardest thing is picking the colour :)

bOOks - part one

Going through more boxes today I came across some of our great books for kids. I've been buying and collecting these way before we had the little ones but now I have a great excuse for really going for it in the book aisles when online and on foot!
THhe website Literature Soft shows a great little hut for a kids room, what a perfect den this would make designed by Point Architects.

If I/my little ones had this 'book den' here are some of our favourite books we'd pop on the shelves from the likes of Sara Fanelli, Paul & Anne Rand, Charley Harper, Miroslav Sasek, Taro Gomi, Ed Emberley, Lisa Jones

As there are many books part two will follow soon, if in the meantime you'd like to buy any print and pattern have a great selection via their amazon page......

owl and pussycat

I love owls and have illustrated many, also done a few of 'the owl and the pussycat', today made me think about these past works when the wonderful blog print and pattern by bowie style showed the work of pattern pie
Popping onto the Pattern Pie website I came across this fabulous take on 'the owl and the pussy cat'

well one owl and cat led on to another and here are a few I'd like to share, thanks to Helen Musselwhite for her great collage; Helens website has so many more and are fabulous.
Applique by My Pipsqueak
A beautiful little wooden art sculpture by Gypsy & Twink

designers guild, john lewis & orla for boys....

Yes I know here I go again with the lovely designs from Orla Kiely, but must mention her as she is not just for the girls.....

How gorgeous would the car bedlinen be for a boys room. As would some of the other offerings I came across from Designers Guild & John Lewis
Mum of 2 girls and rooms to finish I've been on the hunt for other interior fabrics, we do have some of our own bedding in the rooms cloud cuckOO designs, like the owl cotbed set (here rolled up with the other 2 designs)

but I'm still on the hunt for more fabric as 'project curtain' is due to commence.... well on my search I came across some pieces for a nursery or toddler/kid room girls and boys that I thought were worth sharing....
