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.
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!

Besides getting an early start on my Christmas shopping, I am one of those people that loathe anything to do with Christmas until December. In the newsagents the other day I saw the cover of Better Homes & Gardens Magazine and felt a little decorating pang.
I always buy these magazines, thinking ohhhh I can make that. I came across the very cute colour Christmas wreath and thought yeah that would be cool, read the instructions, found out I need to cut out at least 40 odd butterflies and my interest was lost at that point. I love handmade items, just not those made by me 🙂
So this year why not give a gift that is truly unique and choose a handmade one. If you are clever unlike me, why not something you have made, or how about something by someone else who is clever.
Here are few of my favourite picks to pop under the tree this year at Christmas just to get your started.
FOR OLDER KIDS

I had to pick my son up tonight from “the bull ring”. It is harvest time here and so he went for a run in the truck with his dad. So “the bull ring” is my inspiration for tonight.
I am a country girl at heart, had a thing for cowboys (and yes for a short time even dated one who did the whole rodeo thing) and always wanted chickens and a vegie garden. I have my chickens and my moderately successful vegie garden, which is probably more food for chickens than my family. Thankfully I don’t have the cowboy anymore.
So here are a few things “a little bit country”
How cute are these dolls by Red Wagon? Now I could spend all day going on about The Red Wagon. I absolutely adore their vintage feel items, how am I ever going to pick only a few to show you?
Very retro birthday invitations for the budding cowboy, also from The Red Wagon.
A sweet summer bloomer set for little boys by Ollie Rose.
At Crab Apple Bedding you can find this cute little cot set featuring the “lil cowpokes” fabric.
I have featured this dress before in one of my daily finds, but just had to again as it is just so darn cute. It is the cowgirl dress by Little Brown Mouse.
Also from Little Brown Mouse is these sweet vintage cowboy overalls.
