Autumn Leaves, Autumn Flowers & Conkers

I'm just back from a sunny holiday on the island of Rhodes in Greece and my mum (the other half of daisyfleur) is just heading off for a holiday in Italy so we are like 'ships passing in the night' at the moment!
Despite being a sun worshiper, I've decided to embrace Autumn now that I'm home as there really is no doubt it arrived whilst I was away. The leaves are an array of beautiful orange hues and I'm planning a walk in the park this weekend to kick my way through the fallen leaves.
To celebrate Autumn we have some lovely new items in our store which I've featured here today. The rich brown fabric & velvet ribbon reminds me of conkers and these little skirts would be perfect for Fall layered over cream woolly tights or leggings. The skirts shown here are age 4-5years.  Please click on our Etsy store to see a two more in age 2-3years. Jenny ;o)

Alice in Wonderland

I don't know about you but Alice in Wonderland is definitely one of my all time favourite books so you can   imagine the excitement in the daisyfleur camp when we got a custom order to make an Alice in Wonderland apron for a 20month little girl!  Our resident pinny expert Suzanne (my mum) created the lovely apron seen here & I made the matching alice band.  That's one little girl all set to attend a Mad Hatters Tea Party!
This assignment bought back happy memories for both myself and my mum as she created a gorgeous Alice in Wonderland outfit for me when I was a little girl.  I loved being Alice and have nurtured a liking for alice bands ever since.  I can't wait for the new film starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter.  He is another of my all time favourites! Jenny ;o)

PS Check out the little pic of me as Alice - apologies for the poor quality image but it was the 1980s...

Rich Reds & Regal Delights

Having awoken to the sound of heavy rain I was just beginning to despair of grey old London when I logged onto Etsy & received the exciting news that we had been included in a treasury.  I rushed off to check it out and was delighted to see the gorgeous warm reds and lovely eclectic items chosen by silverbeadsandclay.  I then spent a happy few minutes browsing all the other stores and my mood visibly brightened.   My favourites are the Twiggy wire vine crown & Nina Suede Peep Toes - would love to hear your favourites, Jenny ;o)
