Outfit of the week!

Phew, it took me ages to decide on these outfits - theres so much new stock to choose from! Finally decided on some nice matchy autumn looks.

For girls is one of our lovely new cardigans, made from lambswool - they are so soft! Lots of unusual detailing and they are available from 3-6 months right up to 3-4 years! Looks really cute with this lovely dress (my favourite minimod one!) which is 1-2 years. This outfit looks so cute with a Christmas pudding hat, but if its to early for you we also have lots of stripy knitted hats, and theres actually a cute matching fur lined hat for this dress! 'Jana Mae' was the perfect finishing touch for this look.

For boys is one of our lovely new romper suits (yes i know i havnt posted about them yet - i will soon!), we have them from 0-6 months up to 12-18 months in 2 different colour ways. It looks so smart with a tie bib! Our red bear hat was a perfect match, and 'Fred' has such a nice face that i couldnt resist! Gayle has added lots of our new stock onto the website if you fancy having a look!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Carry Me Home! Hope you all have fun dressing up and trick or treating!

Love Lane Caravans

So this is where i went for a weekend away recently, and had to share it with you! We stayed in the 50s caravan, which had lots of its original features, beautiful floral wallpaper and bedding, lots of pretty vintage trinkets and oh yeah, ITS PINK! Love Lane Caravans have lots of different vintage caravans to chose from though, and the location is lovely. One of my new favourite places! And its child friendly too, there are swings to play on in the field and nearby is a lovely farm with lots of activities! Ok so maybe i should have waited till next spring to share this (when you can actually go and stay - bit cold in the winter!) but i couldnt wait to post the photos!

New knitwear!

I cant believe how much lovely knitwear we have at the moment! Starting from the top...these tiny hand knitted jumpers are so cute! They are lovely and soft and we have lots of different colours. Next is our christmassy knitwear! The pudding hat has been selling fast already, and we also have sweet little matching booties. My favourite is the knitted bear hat! His face is soo cute! Hes available in Khaki and dark red, and i have to admit, i am quite tempted to see if i can squeeze my head into one! We got some really nice berry hats too, i love the bobbley texture on them, and they tie under the chin, how sweet! We also got some very posh cardigans for girls, in cream and brown, or purple and white. These are available in 3-6 months right up to 3-4 years, and look, how handy - they go perfectly with our dresses! Check the website for more nice knitted things or come into the shop on Carnaby street x

Whimsy dolls

Wow its been a busy week for Gayle! Loads more lovely winter stock arrived - including these gorgeous Whimsy dolls, which deserved a post of their own! We've got lots of lovely dolls, blondes, brunettes and red heads! Each one has a different little dress, and they are all named. We've also got some really cute foxes and cats. They are completely unique, and made by hand America - we are the only UK stockists so you wont see them anywhere else! Sam the squirrel has got to be my favourite - just look at that tail (should a buy myself something sensible, like winter shoes, or a cute toy squirrel? Its a close call!)! Gayle sold her favourite one before i even had a chance to take a photo, but she has assured me he went to a good home! Hopefully these will all go to good homes too, so hurry up if you've got your eye on one!

Outfit of the week

Wow - its our 100th post on the blog! And also our 10th outfit of the week (or 20th depending how you look at it)! To celebrate Ive done 2 outfits for girls and 2 for boys this week. In true Carry Me Home style, Ive done some extra colourful looks!

The first outfits are for teeny tiny babies - for boys Ive used our cool new tie bib. It looks so cute with these lovely green stripy trousers (part of set) and Gayle's red 'Cheeky Little Monkey' grow (you cant see the writing, but you know the one i mean!). We've got new guitar rattles in stock, and this red and blue one matches perfectly. Also added a blue Benjamin bear and a cosy little knitted hat. What a cute outfit! For girls is this lovely clashing red and pink butterfly baby grow, which is even cuter when worn with a pink cupcake bib, one of Gayle's little hats and some adorable pink Mary Jane socks. A little hand made elephant toy finishes the look of perfectly. The clothes in these outfits are 0-3 months, but we have these in bigger sizes too. And the toys and bibs will do for babies of all ages.

The second lots of outfits are for bigger kids! The boys look is for 2-3 years, some really grown up dark denim jeans, a chunky knit stripy cardigan and this super cool tuxedo t shirt. Added a cute stripy hat (we have loads of different colour ways available) and one of our best sellers - soldier skittles! For girls is one of Stevens dresses - i love this seagull printed one (its 1-2 years, but we have these dresses from 6-12 months right up to 2-3 years). The back is pink and white candy stripes, its so cute! Its reversible too, so you get 2 dresses in 1! It looks cute and colourful with a yellow oops bib and some red leggings. I also added some lovely green cake hair accessories. It would look lovely with these knee high apple socks too!

Remember you can shop online -, or come into the shop in Kingly Court if you want some help choosing nice outfits like these! We've got lots of exciting ideas coming up for the blog so keep checking back (or why not follow us?) to find out more!

The Inbetweeners

Anyone watch 'The Inbetweeners'? Well Gayle has been asked to do the production company a (another - shes done a few for them) babygrow, using one of the most popular quotes from the channel 4 series. "My dad is not bent" is frequently said by Neil (the tall stupid one!). You might need to watch the programme to understand it! If you want your own message on a babygrow (or hat, or bib etc) then have a look on the website or come and see Gayle in the shop.

We've been busy here this week, lots of orders online so its backwards and forwards to the post office! Keep checking the blog for more news! x

Outfit of the week

Outfits for teeny tiny babies this week! For girls is one of Gayle's baby grows 'Munchkin' - a really popular seller. Looks really cute with one of Gayle's pink stripy hats, and is also a perfect match with our little Mary Jane socks! Make it a super cute present for someone with a lovely handmade cushion. Gayle's baby grows are available in 0-3 months up to 6-12 months, and we also have t shirts (in loads of different sizes!), hats and bibs. Remember Gayle can personalise these for you so you can have something extra special written on.
For the boys is one of my favourite of Gayle's designs 'Little Man', its so cute on navy! Luckily we have some matching socks for this too! It looks so cute with this little green stripy hat (part of set) and a lovely knitted blanket, the green in the blanket is exactly the same shade as the hat!
