Home alone on a Saturday night I am listening to music, which I rarely get a chance to do without the constant “mum” interuptions. 

My music of choice tonight is Kenny Wayne Shepperd, a bit of the blues, although I am not blue today, more in a rock and roll mood (though kind of hard to be too rock and roll when you are a mum, home alone in your jammies on a Saturday night ).

And so is tonights inspiration ROCK AND ROLL………………

Any good aspiring rock parent should head straight to, Rock Your Baby of course when looking for absolutely funky wear!  If anyone from my family are reading my boys NEED a pair of those jeans!


These coveralls are by Chillibub Clothing, and in that funky leopard print are bound to make your baby the coolest in the sandpit this summer.


Little boys need a rough and tough shirt for this summer and Ruffian Industries have some fantastic shirts for the up and coming rock star in your life such as this Butch Shirt.


There is nothing princess about this little romper from Mini Threads and available at Hollywood Baby

I also happen to love the Australian label Monster Baby, it is edgy, unique and bound to draw attention.  Some are not for the faint hearted, but I do love this one featuring Mr T (hint hint family).


And lastly something for those that want that rock and roll look but to still retain a bit of sweetness, is this Sugar Skulls Skirt Set from Ollie Rose.

Well it is nearly 8.30 pm here, and time for this rock and roll mum to be not quite so cool and get ready for bed!

Happy Birthday!

On Wednesday it will be my son’s 1st Birthday, I can hardly believe where the time has gone.

An email tonight from a lady looking for an outfit for her very cute big blued  girl on her 1st birthday has prompted my blog tonight, and so I have been on the search for outfits to make that big day just that bit more special.


Rock Your Baby create a very hip and ultra cool range of clothing, I love their funky dresses.  This one is Madame Butterfly from the party frocks range.


Townmouse create this gorgeous gypsy style dress.  In choice of sweet fabrics it would make a cute party dress.


At La la baby you can find this funky reversible Bo Peep Dress.  Being in black and red makes it an absolute stand out in terms of a party dress.  But don’t worry if these colours aren’t your thing there are more available.


A dress good enough to eat from All You Need, the Samba Dress in Baby Cakes.


We can’t forgot those little boys, and here is a cute 1st Birthday T-shirt from Ollie Rose.


Mini Mermaid are a range I came across in my search tonight.  These gorgeous dresses are created from Vintage material and are manufactured in QLD.

Sadly I have to leave it there tonight, but I am sure I can find many more.  Unfortunately I am yet to come across a big range for little boys, but am very excited as I should be receiving my custom made outfit for my little boy from Ollie Rose on Monday.

PS – and stay tuned, would you believe I managed to attempt some handmade Christmas decorations from the BH&G Magazine and they grace my Christmas tree as well as the ones my friend Bree made for us.

I have always loved reading and one of my many favourite books would be Enid Blytons “The Magic Faraway Tree”.  Even now as an adult I will still pick it up and read those magical tales that Enid was brilliant at creating.

The most popular searches that brings readers to Handmade Kids would be those seeking items on fairies and princesses.  So with that in mind, I have decided to indulge in the fantasty world of fairy tales and bring you some more handmade finds all things  magical.


Pinky the very cute clothspin doll from BeezTings



Red Rose Twinkle Dress from Saphire Secrets.  I have mentioned it before and will again, Saphire Secrets is the perfect place to go when looking for fairy items, they have everything from wands to wings.


Another perfect store for all things fairies is Fairy Frocks.  I just didn’t know where to start here, too many gorgeous sparkly things.  The ladybird costume above is just one of the many great costumes on offer.


How special are these tutu’s by Baby Hoot from Tasmania.  You can get your own by visiting Millie Molly Moo.



Oh my giddy Aunt has the most gorgeous handmade fairy wings, decorated with glitter they are sure to capture a child’s imagination.  And you might even find a matching wand and headbands.


Whilst you are at Oh My Giddy  Aunt, have a look at these stunning Tooth Fairy Wish Charm Bracelets.  The sweetest way to remember all those lost teeth.
