I am notoriously terrible at getting organised to leave the house.  While I was running around the other day leaving a big mess everywhere, I was told with a big, busy sigh, “Right, Shrek and I are all sorted”.  I had to stop what I was doing to take these photos of my organised little girl.  She’s already so grown up.  Look at all of the things in the bag.  She’s thought of everything, the blackboard dusting rag hanging out of the side is “his hanky”, there’s a drink for her, spare undies (for Shrek) as well as pencils to keep him busy.

This is my absolute favourite of Ivy’s vintage dresses for this summer (an Oscar de la Renta dress from the late 70’s/early 80’s GIVEN to me with a whole pile of the coolest vintage baby clothes ever by Anne.  So very lucky).

I’m looking forward to getting our Christmas tree this weekend, the tree brings with it the smell of Christmas and it instantly makes me feel festive.  I’ve made some very easy and cute decorations this year and I can’t wait to get them up.    

* Linking up with little vintage style this week.

(I was also pretty happy to read this blog post yesterday with some of the cute little things from my shop!).


  1. oh, so cute! And I love her little red shoes!

  2. darling! good reminder to stop and take in these moments with our children, they grow up too fast.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message!
