My Sweet Prints - Gorgeous customised art.

If you are after a lovely, personalised print for your home, your baby's nursery or as a unique gift idea - I highly recommend you check out

My Sweet Prints is the brainchild of Graphic Designer, Illustrator, and mother of one boy, Janette Baker. Based in Sydney, Janette creates a wonderful selection of prints which can be personalised to suit your needs. My cousin received the style of print shown above as a gift for her newborn, Samuel with all his birth details - she loved it so much, she wants to get one for her older child too.

This print shown below is one of my favourites, and is high on my list for our home. I think it is so sweet and conveys a lovely message. Of course, you add your own street name for the personalised touch!

All things birds

Well, my little Emma is 10 weeks old and moving out of her bassinette and into her cot in her own bedroom - gasp, she is growing up, soon she'll be driving!! My nesting instinct has really kicked in, and I am in full decorator mode trying to pretty up the room for a little girl. For some reason I am really drawn to all things birds! Is it because she is my "little chicken"? Is it because I am so "clucky" over her? Whatever the reason my feathers are ruffled (pardon the pun!) over these latest finds which I am adding to her special space!

First stop was My Munchkin Home who have the most delicious wall decals. The above image is the decal chosen for Emma's room, in white, and it looks wonderful!

Secondly, I stumbled across the lovely website and saw these adorable little china bird houses - mmmm, yes please!
Thirdly, browsing on I found Ernie & Bird who make gorgeous fabric bird mobiles - so cute!

I think it's all coming together nicely, but I am still on the search for those extra special items which catch my eye. It's such fun, there is so much talent out there. And afterall, isn't it the special touches which make a house a home? Fill your's with the bits and pieces you love, (and the people!) and enjoy!
