    how gorgeous are her things! I love the backpacks 🙂 I have decided to support WAHMs on Madeit this Christmas as much as possible, rather than the big department stores, and I’d like to think some people will buy from my store too – plus they are unique 🙂 (PS Kelly, I’m not entering the competition since I make kids clothes myself, but just wanted to say how gorgeous they are!)

    Beautiful items! I love the pyjama doll. I think that would really help my girls with the almost-nightly drama of “I can’t find my nightie!!” (because I just cant seem to train them to put their pjs under their pillow when they make heir bed.) The beach is cute too.

    (PS some of your links weren’t working for me …. the ‘click here’ ones.)

    The gorgeous blue checked skirt does it for me …I can see one of my beautiful grand daughters wearing this …..she is only 3 and would just love it, I know . ( she is very tall …so the 4-5 sizing would be spot on ). Lovely stuff 🙂

    I am loving all of the things in her store – just beautiful! But, if I had to pick just one it would have to be the yellow and white check skirt, I am loving yellow at the moment!
