New Logo!

My gorgeous friend Xanthe has hand drawn the beautiful logo you see above. I'm going to try and update the look of the blog every now and then. I hope you like it. xxx

Just a little note. If you are planning to use images from my blog on your blog, please credit Mama Likes This as the source. I realize my images are not my own, but I don't pull them from other blogs without crediting the source. I usually pull them from the original sites.

How cute is this kids singlet from Bassike? Proceeds go to the Sydney Children's Hospital. They go on sale tomorrow, I'll be getting one for sure! Photo from the Bassike Instagram feed.

Petra Boase Decorations

There are so many decorations around for kids, but these are some of the cutest. Although it's becoming easier to find these honeycomb decorations, I have never seen them in these different sizes before. There are loads of colours available too. And then there are the cute japanese balloon creatures. They are really sweet, you just blow into a little hole and voila. Buy them all here and have a good look around the site.

Lucky Girl

My little girl was sent some super cute pants from Peppin. They are a crazy zebra like chevron print. They look so cool on, I'd recommend getting in quick for these ones!

Metal Beds

I love these metal beds! They are a bit traditional but look great in a modern setting. They come in white, dark brown, spearmint, lemon and pink. Available from Incy Interiors in Australia.

Shelf Life

Another good Australian find is Shelf Life. There is a little kids section on this site, full of toys and prints. But the things I like the most are these wooden decorations (they are not toys!) and these sweet knitted hats and mittens. There is so much more to look at.

I am in love with these Mushroom Canisters by Beci Orpin. A little similar to the Pen Pencil Stencil guys, but much cuter. The are available exclusively in Melbourne from Ganim Store (online shop yet to come). I think I need to go to Australia.

Les Zigouis

I love this eclectic online store from France. Les Zigouis is a collection of clothing for kids and adults as well as art and photography by Barbara Berrada. Definitely worth a little look around this site.

Ikea Lips

Did you know that the Ikea website is not actually an online store? I discovered this when I tried to order some of the things below (to be sent to a friend in Australia). So I didn't get them, but I so want this crazy lip cushion and the zip up cot blanket. I will find a way. Maybe.

Vintage Hot Air Balloons

I keep seeing these in kids interior images but always wondered where they cam from. You can get them here at Mini Style in Australia!

Mes habits cheris

I have no idea what is going on because this site is French. But there are a few things I would like to buy if I had a money tree. This site is so full of things I have the feeling I haven't even scratched the surface. My picks...

These are so cute. A nice alternative to Sylvanian Familes if you will. Also available at Lille Figaro.

This is just mental and that's why I like it.

I have actually been trying to track one of these down for a very long time but I just can't bring myself to actually purchase it.

Cart Before The Horse

It might be obvious I'm on an Etsy roll. These crazy creatures are by Cart Before The Horse in Portland. They are all made by hand out of quilter's muslin that they sand and paint and sand and paint again. There is so much detailed work in them and they are all limited editions of 25.

Garlands are obviously hot right now but these are different. If I didn't already have a garland in our baby's room, I would definitely be buying one of these. Made by Shelby Dimarco, find them on Etsy.

Wire Basket

I have wanted this Fog Linen basket forever! Buy it at Father Rabbit, it's perfect for toys.

Our House

So we finished our baby's bedroom a few weeks ago. Finished meaning for now, I like to change things constantly. Here is a little peak of some of the details. There are loads of other details not shown, maybe another day. Hope you like it. Photos by Olivia Hemus

Washable Paper Bags

So I have quite an obsession with stationery. I buy too much of it and I don't really use it, although I do admire it often. So while I was trying to track down the store I bought some giant circular stickers from a few years ago, I came across Paper2. But this isn't about stationery, it's about washable paper bags!! These would be perfect for kids rooms. Oh and they sell those cool geo-grafia globes you can colour in.

Confetti System

 Confetti System have done it again! New honeycomb decorations in their own classic diamond shaped pinatas.

Pen Pencil Stencil

I hope I haven't blogged about this before? Pen Pencil Stencil is the amazing work by designer Mark Giglio from California. I've been dying to get my hands on some of these characters for too long. Enjoy...

I actually can't handle how aesthetically pleasing this is to me! So many cute things. Adonde is from Paris and I am going shopping now! From top to bottom: Waste paper bin, Storage Basket, Storage basket again, Match box light (not that small), Untitled Lamp and stationary set.
