A few of my favourite baby things

With less than two weeks to go before B-Day, my nesting instincts have reached a crescendo and our former dining room has been well and truly babyfied with vintagey bits and bobs plus some gorgeous gifts from friends and family: 
A limited edition letter press print from my colleagues - the nursery rhyme refers to local East End haunts - bought from Nelly Duff on Columbia Road.

The cot with a homemade patchwork quilt and lavender pouch from Amy, plus colourful wool blanket from Oxfam:

Poppy’s beautiful hand-painted box lined with vintage fabrics, given to us as a wedding present and now being used for teeny-tiny towels and sheets. Booties found in a market in Bangkok, and cosy blanket hand-knitted in Wales.

Mum’s bathing basket that she has lined with old-fashioned Peter Rabbit fabric and loaded with organic baby toiletries:

A gorgeous book of ‘baby memories’ found in Sao Paulo by my friend Cesca:

Couldn’t resist a bit of bunting... or Cath Kidston:


  1. What an exciting time! I found your blog when you had just started planning for your vintage wedding and now it has been some time since I popped over to your blog.... to find you're nearing motherhood. Congrats & hope you have a safe birth.

  2. Thank you for your wishes! I can't believe how fast its all gone either! x
