Littlelish was born in Holland, a seriously cool country with no shortage of seriously cool baby shops. Within the first year she had built up a seriously cool wardrobe.

Since moving home to my beautiful England, the choice of shops has gone rather downhill. Where we live (rural East midlands) there are hardly any kiddy shops let alone hip, affordable ones.

Online shopping is the savior of any countryside mummy and perhaps mummies all over the country (I know shopping with my little one is something I try to avoid).

So I thought I’d introduce you to this little gem of a shop burp! boutique with some seriously cool clothes for children (independent designers such as Boys&Girls®, Tootsa MacGinty, Nippaz with Attitude and Flamingos & Dominoes) and a refreshing philosophy on dressing your little ones.

We love quirky, fun, bright things that will bring a dash of sunshine into yours and your child’s lives. We hand pick all the best bits from independent designers to put together our strong collection. We’re not into the pinkification that the world is following, we’re not sheep. We come from the 70’s where dressing androgynously and in lots of different colours was the norm. We want to bring highly creative, fun alternatives to the mass produced high street fashion. Our ethos is to support up and coming artists and designers and shout about gorgeous, fun stuff.

I am so excited. My birch tree carvings are getting great reviews over on Etsy. I think it appeals to all the romantics without being too over the top and girly (I guess a bit like it’s creator). I am still taking orders for valentines so let me know if you’d like one making for your beloved.

It’s been a busy few weeks. Actually that is a major understatement. We’ve moved house, welcomed a beautiful new baby (my sisters) all while organising Christmas (wouldn’t it be great if Santa were real?) and keeping life and routines carrying along as normal (ish). This year I decided I’d like to craft some homemade presents too, I don’t like to make it easy for myself, do I? To honour our first baby boy in the family, Levi Jack Turner, I decided to make a word frame for him full of things that little boys love! What do you think?

This is one of my girly word frames that I made for my daughter a little while ago. I custom make these for little boys and little girls, complete with all the things that they love! A very personalised, fun addition to their room. For more information feel free to send me an email or check out my shop in 2012!
