"Peedie Man"

Gayle made this personalised t shirt for me to give to Callum when i went up to Orkney. As you can see he really loved it (or is he just smiling because he was allowed to jump on the bed?!). It looks extra cute with Callums dark jeans and lovely stripy shirt - mum did a good job of choosing! For those of you who dont know what Peedie means, its Orcadian for small! Remember we do a grow with "Little Man" on it for those of you who arent Orcadian! Available in our shop or on the website. Lots of exciting new AW stock in the shop, will tell you all about it later!

Time Out London

How could i forget to mention? We were in Time Out London! Our lovely "Apple of my Eye" brooch was featured!

Outfit of the week

Sorry its late! For the girls this week is one of our new dresses from Steven - we have had this pattern before in yellow, but its even cuter in pink! The perfect match for our pink ruffle bum leggings. Added this gorgeous hand crochet blanket and some lovely hair clips from Arty and Belle. A lovely matching look!

For the boys is an unbelievably soft and cosy jumper by Bamboo Baby, love the green and white stripes. And some jeans from Rockafella too, new in stock, available in 1-2 and 2-3 yrs. Perfect for autumn! Check our website or come in and see us just off Carnaby street!

Callums cake day!

Made this cute apron for my favourite little boy before i went up to Orkney to visit all my friends. As you can see we had so much fun making fairy cakes, and quite a lot of mess! Although Callum was really good at scooping the mixture into the paper cases, and excellent at stirring, i think his favourite part was licking the bowl!
These aprons aren't going to be stocked in the shop or on our website, but if you would like one please get in touch and we will be happy to make one for you!

Back to work!

Back to London and back to work! Sorry about the lack of blogging when i was away - had so many friends to visit and photos to take! So anyway, i went home to Orkney for a week to visit my friends and family. Here a few photos for you - the top one is a lovely view of a misty sunset over Hoy (taken from Orphir), the middle is the village on Stronsay - where i grew up, and the bottom picture is of the cliffs at Birsay. I have to say, im glad to get back to the weather in London, was really cold in Orkney! Lots of lovely new things to share with you - excited to show you all our new stock! Gayle is away on her holiday now, will see if i can get her to share some snaps when she gets back!

Outfit of the week

Ive gone for looks for teeny tiny babies this week! For girls, i had to choose one of our new vintage inspired grows. Cute frill detail on the shoulder, and beautiful colours. This little knitted hat matches the blue in the print of the suit perfectly. And a lovely knitted mouse toy and oops bib too! The grow is available in 0-3, 3-6 and 6-12 months and we have hats in lots of different colours and sizes. For boys, i thought these little Olive and Moss trousers (part of new born set) looked so cute with a 'It started with a kiss' babygrow. This is my absolute favourite thing that Gayle makes! Matched it with one of our hats too, and a little moon light. This outfit could also work for girls, as the little tousers come in a lovely peach colour too! Shop online on our website, or come and see Gayle in the shop!

Rock 'n' Roll Bride

Oooh look at us! One of our products has been featured on 'Rock 'n' Roll Bride's blog, in the 'Retro Rockabilly List'! How cute would a little page boy be wearing our Tuxedo T shirt at a wedding? Available in store and on our website for only £16.50. We have it in 3-6 months right up to 2-3 years - with long sleeves, perfect for winter!


Earlier this week we had an order for some of my personalised bunting, and here it is! I hope little Lois and her parents like it as much as i do!

Looks like we got a new delivery from Hetty and Dave during the week too... Lots of lovely keyrings - mummy, mother, mumsy and mum! We still have some cute brooches in stock as well. All of them are handcrafted in England and make lovely of these would be especially nice for a mum-to-be! Check the Love from Hetty and Dave blog to see which celebrities have been snapped wearing their designs! Available in our shop or to buy online.

New in for winter!

These grows arrived during the week from Oh Baby London. Available in 0-3, 3-6 and 6-12 months - but we only have 2 in each size so hurry up if you want one! Gayle thinks they are the sort of thing you either love or hate (like marmite!) and i certainly love them! I have a fondness for vintage ornaments and figurines (i tend to feel sorry for them and want to rescue them - my flat looks like a car boot sale!) and the prints on these grows have the same sort of feel to them. I cant decide which i like best though?! They have lovely frill detail on the shoulders, fasten up the front and are made of lovely thick jersey, which makes them super cosy! Check the website to see lots more cute and cosy things!

Braces and Butterflys!

The Autumn/winter stock is really flooding in now! First off, we've finally got the black and white 'Been Insides' (as we fondly refer to them in the shop!) back in stock. Also from 'Oh Baby London' we got these super colourful suits in. The girls one is gorgeous, i love clashing pink and red together! And the boys is really smart, the braces are printed on the back too! The grows are available in 0-3, 3-6 and 6-12 months, and we also have the boys design available as a long sleeved top right up to 3-4 years. These grows and tops are made from heavy jersey so they are all really cosy! Check out our website or come in and have a look in the shop!

Outfit of the week!

Its that time of the week again already! A super cute look for little girls this week - of course i had to use my favourite dress! This dress is 1-2 years, but we also have lots in 6-12 months and 2-3 years. Stevens dresses dont only look great on their own, they look really good layered over tops as a pinafore dress - perfect for when the weather gets a bit chillier. Brightened the outfit up a bit with some red leggings. Also a sweet Rosie Flo kitchen colouring book, perfect for keeping little ones busy when your busy in the kitchen!

For the boys one of our most popular baby grows - black and white stripes with a 'mum and dad' tattoo. Its so cute, and made from really soft cosy cotton too. We have them in 3-6 and 6-12 months, available as grows or long sleeve tops. This lovely red and grey elephant toy matched perfectly! Visit our website to shop online, or pop into to see us in Kingly Court!

We've also got matching Happy Birthday cards in the shop, making this the perfect birthday present for little princesses! Check our website for more nice pressies!

The cutest dress in the world!

These dresses came in the same parcel as the elephants this morning. I love getting new dresses in, Steven and Gayle always choose such cute fabric! The one with cake, jewels and macaroons is the cutest dress in the whole world, i love it! The colours are gorgeous and its got so many lovely thnigs on it - roses, cakes, beads! I also love the little anchor one, its so pretty! We also got one with lots of toys on, i love the little robots and dolls! Another cupcake dress, but a different style. Cupcakes are always popular in Carry Me Home! And this jungle animal one is really growing on me, its so unusual but i like it! Available in 6-12 months, 1-2 years and 2-3 years in our shop and on the website.

Nellie the Elephant...

We got a lovely big parcel in the post today, from Steven. And look what was inside! These lovely elephant toys are available in store. Here they are in their natural habitat, and making friends with some of the other lovely toys we have in our shop (and on our website!). Check Stevens blog for more information about these cute Elephants!

Outfit of the week

Sorry its late! Ok, so for little boys we've got a cute 'Douglas the Dog' playsuit from Olive and Moss. It looks so cute matched up with some little brown socks and this lovely brown and cream knitted hat. A very 'Chanel inspired' look for the girls... one of our best sellers, the lovely Pearl t shirt. Really smart, but totally practical too. Very grown up when worn with these black and white 'ruffle bum' leggings and a sweet knitted white hat (to keep with the monchrome theme!). Available in our shop in Kingly Court, or on the website.
