Weekend Wonderings

This morning’s Weekend Wonderings comes to you courtesy of Bella/Belmo/Mrs M/the sexy red-head with the awesome veil…however you choose to remember her. She pointed me in the direction of The Ginger Bee during our last Skype chat and I was bowled over by the CUTENESS. And the talent and creativity shown by Rebecca, the gorgeous lady from whose crazy brilliant mind sprang the genius of The Ginger Bee.

The Bella and Fiachra Wedding Cushion. Swoon.

Rebecca is Bella’s sister, so it’s unsurprising that she’s amazing and clever and talented, but the products and collections she is creating are nothing short of glorious. I have already informed Philip that Stella needs All The Things from The Ginger Bee. Without trying to sound like an old lady (that happens of it’s own accord, I find) there’s so much manufactured, gender specific TAT out there for babies that when products like Rebecca’s make an appearance, I believe they should be appreciated, valued and adored.

Ermintrude the Owl...you know Anna will be all over this one.

From the 'Olive and Edgar' collection, embroidered muslins.

The ridiculously cute ‘Alice’ hat.

I will mostly be spending my Saturday making a Christmas list for a baby that won’t *actually* be here at Christmas, full of beautiful things from The Ginger Bee. You?

    Also, the hat ROCKS. All hail The Ginger Bee! Beautiful.
