Bracelet bling

Where did this dreary weather come from all of a sudden? I've been downloading photos from my camera on to the computer and there are photos taken just a few weeks ago of Miss Diva and Little Poppet playing at the Botanic Gardens and wearing shorts and t-shirts. I packed up these very same shorts and t-shirts today and put them into long term storage - brrrrrr!

If you feel like you need a splash of colour to brighten up your day and your winter wardrobe, then perhaps a bit of bling in the form of one of these bracelets might do the trick?

I dropped these off to Shop Handmade last Friday, and there will be lots more at the Goosey Gander and Flibbertigibbet stall at Handmade Market on the 5th of June.

Another photo shoot with Tess


Last Monday (was it really only a week ago?) Goosey Gander and Flibbertigibbet had a photoshoot with Tess of Tess Anthony Photography to get some shots featuring both our ranges.

Our approach was, in retrospect, rather risky. We assembled five gorgeous and very active children, took them outdoors to a park with lots of places to explore (including fishponds), hyped them up on some biscuits and then let them loose on the photographer. Amazingly, it worked, with far more credit due to Tess' talent than any form of co-operation from the children!

Here's gorgeous Miss Goosey aged 18 months in a new range Goosey Gander Babushka Pinafore (these will debut at Handmade Market on the 5th of June) with co-ordinating button elastics. Miss Goosey has quite a collection of Flibbertigibbet hair accessories and finally has long enough hair for pigtails - hooray!

Tess did a simply amazing job, and you can see a sneak peak of more photos on her blog here

Thank you so much, Tess!

Guilty as charged

Oh dear. I'm guilty of blog neglect.

I'm being kept very busy being mum to Miss Diva and Little Poppet, making stock for Shop Handmade and also for the fast approaching Handmade Market, which is (gasp) only 25 days away (eeek!)

But I hope to post again soon with some sneak peeks of some new items I will be adding to the Flibbertigibbet range at the next Handmade Market.
