Royal Ascot Scarecrows!

We did our usual walk to the end of our road to see the Scarecrows the residents have put out to entertain the traffic heading to Royal Ascot. It has become a bit of a tradition every year with all the residents going to such great effort to make all the fantastic scarecrows and collect money from people on their way to the races for various local charities. My girls, along with lots of other locals love to go and have a look at the creations. The residents did a great job yet again this year with some fantastic creations. Gave me lots of ideas for the scarecrow I will be creating for the summer holidays here at Holme Grange Craft Village, where my shop is! Apparently last year they had scarecrows representing each shop lining the driveway and we are doing it again this year!

Trends for SS14

This is Bubble London June 2013, the children’s clothes exhibition I go to twice a year to view stock for forthcoming seasons. It took me a whole day to see all our current brands and their exciting collections for SS14 and see if there were any new and exciting brands for Raspberry Red! Manic but so much fun!




These are the industries predictions for SS14

Maileg baby rattles

We are in love with these new rattles from Maileg! A pirate themed set with pirate ship and a fairytale set in a castle. There’s a pirate, captain and mermaid and a soft pirate ship. A prince, princess and dragon and soft castle.

As for these adorable baby mice in matchboxes, say no more! Oh and their dummies are little heart buttons ūüôā
