Been Inside for 9 months

Here's a picture of my favourite new cousin i told you about last week. How cute does he look in his 'Been Inside' grow? As you can imagine i spoilt him rotten with all my favourite Carry Me Home products, including this! Its one of our best sellers... so much that we have actually sold out at the moment, so keep checking the website and the blog to see when we get them back in stock. I also got him an 'It started with a kiss' baby grow, which is my absolute favourite! Of course i got him an 'Oops' bib, and got Gayle to make an extra special personalised baby grow for him too. If you would like something personalised please get in touch! Check the website for lots of lovely gifts if you've got someone to buy a special present for.

Oh hello new stock!

Here's just a few of the new bits and pieces in the shop. We've got some really lovely new dresses from Steven, and Minimod. I love these two, especially the bird one. Remember they're reversible, so you get a cute pattern one side, and gingham or polkadots on the other! We have dresses in 6-12 months, 1-2 years and 2-3 years at the moment. Also new in is this adorable knitted babygrow, i absolutely love it! This one is 3-6 months. Check the website for lots more new things, and more will be posted on the blog soon!

A photo a day for a year

Here's my first few photos i was telling you about... they don't have much to do with anything but they're pretty to look at! Ive decided I'm going to take a photo every day for a year, but started on the 15th of February (just after i handed my dissertation in!). Im no expert at photography, and to be honest dont even know what kind of camera i have - i just like taking pictures of things that look nice! So here we have, a vintage duck (who has been a huge inspiration for my studio work at uni) some beads, a building in the city at night, some splashes of dye on the wall at uni, and some lovely vintage pins (my favourite thing to hoard is old packaging!). Check back later, there's lots more new stock in the shop to share with you!

Meet Karina, Douglas and Betty!

I'm sure some of you will be familiar with these characters, but for those of you who aren't, meet Karina the Kitten, Douglas the Dog and Betty the Bunny. These are our latest items from Olive and Moss, which arrived during the week. Love the colours on the Betty the Bunny baby grow, and look at Karina the Kittens rosy little cheeks! Check our website for more from Olive and Moss.

Busy busy busy!

You might be wondering what we've been up to in the last month - not much has been going on with the blog, we've been so busy this last few weeks! So there's quite a bit of news to share with you. Starting with 2 very special new arrivals! Above is Mimi, Gayle's friends new baby girl, modelling our cute Mary Jane socks. Also, my cousin had a lovely baby boy, Alfie, who i went to meet last week. A slightly belated congratulations on both new arrivals from Carry Me Home!

Also, we have had two exciting whole sale orders to tell you more about soon. And this morning we had order number 500 on our website! There's lots of lovely new stock in the shop, which i will share with you today and tomorrow. Steven popped in to see Gayle in the week too, and mentioned us on his blog.

So as well as everything in the shop keeping us busy, Ive been really busy with uni too. I finally got my dissertation handed in on Monday (74 pages!!), and am now getting stuck into my final collection! Ive also set myself a little challenge, to take a photo a day for a year, and share them on facebook - i might share them with you guys too if I'm not feeling to shy!

Check back soon to see our new stock and find out about our other news!

Lorna's Portraits

Lorna Freytag is our new favourite photographer here at Carry Me Home! She creates unique and and enchanting children's portraits, inspired by fairy tales and magical landscapes. Here are a small selection of our favourites, it was hard to choose - they are all so lovely! Gayle loves the rocket picture - perfect for cheeky little monkeys! My favourite has got to be the one with beach huts and ice creams (two of my favourite things!). Laura has a great mix of beautiful, classic portrait settings, and magical, fairy tale portraits. They are lovely pictures to be treasured forever! And not only can you choose from her existing backgrounds, you can have her design you a bespoke one - what a perfect gift!
