Amor Amor - Monster Love!

I have been shopping.
First up, two new babies have arrived (yay!) and secondly A seems to be suddenly growing out of all her clothes.
Luckily I found a shop that solved both these issues (sorta - A will need more clothes but we have a a start).  Amor Amor is the brain child of three talented Colombians who now call Australia home.   Here they create quirky, unique monster themed clothes, cushions and paper goods.  The limited edition range of clothing uses soft cottons, water based inks and features amazing hand drawn artwork. 
The skirt I ordered for A is beautifully finished, and so sweet.
I was so pleased with it, and the speed that it arrived, that I brought more stuff. I got her a onesie and another boys onesie for one of the new bubba's.

Its awesome to find a range of funky boys clothes that's not dominated with insipid baby blues, but is cute while retaining a bit of attitude.

I'm totally eying up these colour yourself cushions for my next purchase.  Brilliant idea! Its such a shame A is no where near to being able to colour.

Perhaps you too will find something fabulous at Amor Amor for your little monster!

Just back from a wonderful holiday and trying to catch up still.
So elsewhere in the bloggesphere I've found:
A new blog - Unconsumption, via Etsy's blog.
While on Etsy check out this amazing paper art.  I'm particularly enamoured by the star in the last image.  Breathtaking.
Loving the concept of this book by Pia Jane Bijkerk.
Hidden supprises in this clever cute cake,
Speaking of cte, is this igloo not the cutest attempt to get on side with a future mother in law?
