Luckily for us we have some very talented and crafty family members who have made us the most beautiful accessories for our home. Handmade things make us very happy. I thought I'd share some of our favourites with you.
The bunting above was made by my mother-in-law and me when I was pregnant. I spent a lovely weekend sewing and nesting with her a few weeks before the boy was born; the bunting reminds me of that happy time. The knitted bunting was made by my sister-in-law-a very creative knitter.
Above is a rag rug that my mother-in-law made for the little guy. Her creative skills know no bounds-there is nothing that this woman cannot make. Seriously.
One of the most beautiful items I own; a dressing gown handmade by another sister-in-law (I told you our family were a talented bunch). I was lucky to receive it for Christmas a couple of years ago. I love it so much.
This cushion is another item I treasure. My sister made it for us as a housewarming gift. She embroidered the lettering herself.
And the boy's favourites; his rag doll made by Granny (she also knitted him a matching jumper-there are no words), and quilt made by Aunty.
What a lucky little family we are!
