So much for this being a weekly thing. Over ambitious as always - never mind. Here's some happy things to start the week.

Oh, and to anyone who has come to visit me via the ever lovely Em at The Beetle Shack... hello, It's so nice to have you here!

Cute retro rompers (bring on Summer!).

Daddy's shoulders sure beat the bumbo.

Sun shining on a cute, colourful table.

Overspending on pretty petals.

Polka-dots, flowers and stripes, oh my!

Just a heads up - my next post will be my 100th...and I've got a little surprise in store. Stay tuned! xx


  1. omg, super cute rompers!
    and can I ask you where you got her adorable shoes? take care :)

  2. Hey Claudia, the little shoes are by an Australian brand called Heidi Walks (google, they have a website!). I got them at a store called Shorties in Sydney... they're the best. She wears them all the time, they don't fall off and they go with basically everything!

  3. those little retro sunsuits are absolutely adorable. Might need to hunt around for one on Etsy for Violet. Your little girl is just the cutest in her tights and shoes.

  4. you should see the vintage baby girl's clothes i have stashed away just in case this belly results in a girl. those rompers are mighty cute, as are the polka-dots, flowers and stripes.

    you got to 100 quickly! go you x

  5. Thank you for the info! I looked at all the sites and the 6-9 size (right now, in Canada, it is way too hot for shoes) is pretty much sold out :(

    Maybe they will come back in the fall (um, but it will be spring for you).

    Have a lovely week. xox

  6. Those rompers are ridiculously cute. But what do you mean, bring on Summer? You guys live in Townsville. Isn't it always summer up there?!
