Moo Goo love

This brand of skincare is brilliant. I love their products and have tried most of the range. Especially the milk wash and udder cream.

I can't attest to whether it is good for dermatological problems, but it is great for sensitive skin like mine. No petrochemicals, mineral oils or other nasties.

What's the name about? Their website spiel says:

MooGoo was first made when the founder adapted a cream used in dairy farms to help a family member with a skin problem. The dairy version of "udder cream" was designed to heal the cow's udders and keep them in good condition for milking. It was full of skin repair ingredients and no gimmicks.

For babies, they have a nappy cream and a scalp cream for cradle cap. Lots of the other products are baby friendly too.

They are Australian products, but they ship internationally. Recommended!

Dollhouse delight

The dollhouse- such a powerful childhood memory!

Is there anything better than creating a whole world, a life and a story for all of the dolls (real and imaginary) in their own house...

Here is a wonderful reworked vintage dollhouse, with colourful wallpapered rooms and a shingle roof.

All this house needs is a garden... Imagine the adorable miniatures and bonsais that could work.

What a wonderful butterfly corner! I always loved an attic space the best...

There is definitely a dollhouse renovation in the planning stages around here. We will be sure to post some before and after photos of the fun!

New succulents by the door

Unfortunately, the lovely succulent pot by the front door keeps getting hit by the rolled up newspaper that is thrown over our fence each weekend! It has received a bit of a battering!

So it has been moved to a more sheltered spot and replaced by this hardy and spectacularly blue succulent! What an unusual one. The colour really came to life when it was re-potted in this brown pot, which contrasted so well with its blue colour.

Lets hope it survives the newspaper onslaught!

Spotlight: Shnookies Blankets

The Shnookies pram blanket is such a beautiful item. Hand made in 100% Australian wool, trimmed with a velvet ribbon, made to keep baby warm and snug at home or out and about!

The small size is perfect for cots, prams, strollers, moses baskets, capsules, bassinets... Unlike many blankets, it will cover baby perfectly without spilling out of the pram or being too heavy.

Soft and snuggly, a beautiful and lasting item for your baby (and to pass on to the next!). Take a look at the Shnookies store for blankets and other lovely things!

Spotlight: Shnookies Ponchos

For those of you in cooler climes, the poncho/ wrap/ cape must be an integral part of your wardrobe. It is for us here in Australia each winter!

I love these vintage images of some very cool ponchos...

Naturally, the poncho is even more adorable for little ones...

Here are some Shnookies ponchos- they are fantastic! Like a soft warm blanket to warp your baby in, they are easy to get on and off, can go over any outfit to make it look gorgeous.

They each have a sweet wooden toggle button, securely attached. Perfect for newborns and babies up to four months old.
