Owl addiction

After heading to Mathilda's Market last week I couldn't believe how many of the stalls had owls in their clothing, toys and accessories.

Miss J is currently obsessed with owls thanks to Giggle & Hoot on ABC2 and the first stall we saw at the markets was MillaRuby Designs with their gorgeous owl toys. The owl pictured below from MillaRuby is actually called Hoot the Owl! Think it's telling me to buy it! The photo really doesn't do it justice, in real life they are so cute even hubby wanted to get it for Miss J. Lucky they were so busy I could hardly get in near the stall so saved my pennies for another day. Make sure you also check out their owl headbands and nappy stacker. If you ask Caddie on her facebook fan page she could probably whip you up something owl related as she has a heap of wall pictures with onesies, boys sets or maybe one of her pinnies.

OOBI have a heap of owl prints available in their fabulous clothing range, check out Shophouse for some lounge sets, caps and hoodies.

Another one from Mathilda's was Dotty Spot Designs, check out their Hoot the Owl personalised canvases. Hayley and Rachael can put your little owl addict's name in the owl tree. I love the green one.

Cocoon Couture is another store where you can get something to hoot about! Pictured below is one of their gorgeous beanbags, with multiple colours you can find one to match your child's room or playroom. The owls are also on their bag range for kindy or the library, room accessories (check out the Enchanted Tree also pictured below) and funky wall art. You could do a whole owl room from the one place!

I love looking through madeit for something different and to support WAHMs and stumbled on this gorgeous owl apron and teatowel set.

Bebe Online is where you can get the Cocoon Couture owl range direct and also the beautiful owl linen from Dwell Studio. The linen comes in a stroller blanket, Duvet set and cot linen.

Would love to hear from other people who have owl loving kids and what you have found around the web.

Are you all owled out yet?

Hoot, hoot, hoot.

MillaRuby designs - handmade gorgeousness!

If you are yet to discover the wonderful world of MillaRuby then you are missing out!
Caddie is a SAH mum to two girls (Millana and Ruby hence the name MillaRuby). I'm sure these must be the best dressed girls in Western Australia by what I've seen come out of Caddie's sewing room!
If you want to keep up with what's going through Caddie's mind make sure you become a fan of her facebook page, the things coming up for winter are just divine!
Below is Miss J in her newest dress made just for her! I've been running around after her when she wears it like a headless chook trying to stop her getting a smudge of dirt on it. It's going to get so much wear this Autumn and into Winter will look great with some tights and a long sleeve shirt underneath. The photo really doesn't do it justice, it really is beautiful. Perfect Easter dress for my little chick.

If you are in Perth you might see Miss J wearing it this Sunday when we head to Mathilda's Market. It will be held at the Cottesloe Civic Centre from 9am until 1pm. I'm thinking I might have to get down there early to make sure I get first dibs on what's available! There are plenty of other great stores showcasing their products as well including Raspberry Bub and Dotty Spot.

MillaRuby is also celebrating their first birthday with a HEAP of giveaways! Spend $40 or more and receive a $5 lucky dip and spend over $80 and get a $10 one.

Can't find exactly what you want? Why not contact Caddie and talk to her about it? I've seen her come up with a zebra taggie that someone asked for, all types of designs on her pinnies and even giftsets if you know someone due to have a baby.

Please let me know if you find something you love from MillaRuby Designs as I love to hear about others shopping addictions! Hope to see a few of you at the Market on Sunday.

Happy shopping!
