belgian plush.

What kind of cuteness are the tees and plush from Belgium based Plush?!! Their little creatures have such great character. Their sizes run from 3-6 months all the way up to 6 years. So cute!

I love the photos too…aren’t those kids are adorable! Oh how much I’d have to pay to get my dishwater-blond to look that gorgeous…ha ha!

simply adorable.

Simpli Jessi has some of the sweetest handmade dolls I’ve seen. Each adorable little creation has a story to go with it. Take, for example, Clair {the little freckled girl, above}…here’s part of her description:

Clair makes films. Last year she traveled to New Zealand to film a documentary. Clair eats a lot of pickles and sometimes chews with her mouth open – but only when she’s alone. Clair has a dog named Yoshi who rides a skateboard!

How cute is that?! She uses eco stuffing and found fabric for her creations…I’m just smitten. Check out her blog, too….turns out we have similar taste in music!

all new materials.

I have a fondness for plush. When my kids were much younger, I always tried to find stuffed animals with character. It wasn’t an easy task! Certainly wish All New Materials and their “Deglingos” collection was around back then. Their little cow {above} is the cutest thing ever! Their site doesn’t have online ordering…but you can find them at Creative Kidstuff. Just adorable!

Don’t tell my daughter, Ella….but I just ordered her a custom mouse from The House of Mouse. Isn’t it adorable?! Ella loves to sew…and she loves sewing little dolls and things…AND she loves bright colors to wear all mixed and matched up. The absolutely wonderful Anna made the sweetest and most perfect little Ella mouse for me, and I just had to share. Not sure if I can wait until Christmas to give it to her!

this place is like a zoo.
