Blabla dolls April 21, 2009

I don’t have children (yet) but, if I did, they’d be getting these fabulous dolls from blabla. The colours and designs are just adorable. I particularly love the stripy pants on the monkey and lion (not that the cat’s spots aren’t also cool). I might just have to buy one for my adorable godson Ellis. But which one to choose?! (and there are tons more on the website)

I know this wallpaper by Ferm Living is targeted at parents of small children but I can’t help wanting it for myself. Just how fabulous would it look in a sunny kitchen, for example? With white units and a wooden work surface. Perhaps a limestone floor. And some daffodils in a vase on the windowsill. Oh dear, the decorating monsters are taking up residence in my head again…

I love quirky stationery and none comes quirkier than these notecards designed by seven-year-old Grace Watson for Small Square Design. And they’re only $2!! And come with green or hot pink envelopes! I do hope Grace gets the proceeds from them to spend on sweets…

I know I don’t have a baby but I really want one of these cute changing bags (diaper bags) by Petunia Pickle Bottom. I think it’s the name I like best, though the fabrics are also yummy (mummy).

I wasn’t sure anything could make me more broody but these outfits from Bonpoint have done it! My bestest friend recently had a beautiful little boy and I might have to make the trip to the Bonpoint shops in London to buy him some clobber.
