I love twitter, it has rapidly over taken by love for Facebook, however my love for the book of face does still linger. I have found so many wonderful work at home mums (wahm's) who make beautiful items through Facebook so I thought I'd tell you a little bit about my favourites.

All of these mums sell such individual items and you can tell oodles of love go into every piece. I really believe in supporting local and handmade businesses and I think giving such items as a gifts rather than something bought from the highstreets make them all the more special.

Lemonade & Magnolia

Kylie is the wahm behind Lemonade & Magnolia, she makes quirky & kitsch loveliness for babies. I found her whilst hunting for dribble bibs in retro fabric. She also makes patchwork quilts, dickie bows, clothes, homeware etc, I currently have my eye on a few of her Christmas decorations. If you live near Leeds then she also stocks her items in the lovely Birds Yard. Every time Finn wears one of his bibs someone comments on them, they look super cute. Kylie has even offered to swap the velcro fitting on them for poppers for me which is very kind of her. You wouldn't get such fabulous customer service from a normal shop!

Daisy Days Designs

Now I'm sure most of you probably follow the lovely Chloe's blog, but she also has a wonderful page on Facebook selling handmade plaques, hangings, memory boxes, door signs and much more. I'm completely in love with her Cath Kidston and Emma Bridgewater decoupage letters, they would look so at home in my kitchen. I'm also loving her children's name wall art, the girls names with princess crowns, faeries and flowers are beautiful, damn me for not having a girl! Chloe has also started making Christmas decorations, my Christmas wreath got lost in our house move so I have my eye on her Wooden Christmas Bauble Wreaths.

A little something sewn

I'm not sure where I am across this page, more than likely it was from the Cloth Bum Mums group on Facebook. I'm so very glad I did as I found these amazing travel chalkboard mats, I think they're such a clever idea. To be able to chuck one of these in your changing bag and have ready made entertainment that isn't noisy, doesn't make a mess and provides imaginative play is fab. I'm totally sold on them and all the little people in my family will be getting one for Christmas! You can also buy gorgeous blankets, nappy wallets, bibs, bunting and lots of lovely other handmade goodies.

Tag Blankets By Cassie Creations

One of the very first wahm items I bought was a gorgeous taggy blanket for Finn when he was little. Super soft minky with silky soft tags attached. Finn loved rubbing the tags and always slept with the blanket, he still has a mini one in his cot now. Cassie has some lovely fabrics for you to chose your own blanket from, with colour coordinating tags. Finn very nearly didn't get his blanket, it's so soft I wanted to keep it for myself! I also love the minky cubes she makes, I imagine they would really appeal to young babies.

Have you ever bought anything from a Facebook seller?


  1. I like the look of those, definitely must check them out. I have bought from ebay sellers but never facebook.

  2. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  3. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you ought to write more about this subject matter,
    it may not be a taboo subject but usually people don't discuss these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

  4. First off I would like to say great blog!
    I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!
