Krimpas holidays!

Away on holidays to Grandma and Papou's farm at Bob's Farm.

All the family are here and the kids are loving it.... and who wouldn't when there are chooks, geese, space, grass, figs, watermelons, surf, sand, and a NEW TRAMPOLINE!!

Happy Krimpas Holidays (as Hudson would say)!

A Window to Indi's House!

Meet one of our favourite customers, 2 year old Indi! (Yes, yes..that's right! Another favourite! They’re all our favourites! Cause Hey! Nobody ever said we could only have one!!) Madam giggles and her mum had a ball showing us all her fabulous things! Indi’s Mum describes her décor for Indi's room as Eclectic, Cheap and Cheerful she says they’re addicted to Ikea’s affordable and clever storage solutions and Swedish design, combined with an eclectic mix of one off vintage treasures – many from My Messy Room! Indi’s favourite things at the minute are; la-loons, party-cakes, ice-kweems, and cuggles! – Still working on the pronunciations of some of them! But if it were up to her mum she’d stay that way forever! Just too darn Cute! Oh and her Dobbin and Drum Teepee – The perfect hiding place for cheeky little Indians up to mischief!

Rubbergob arrives to store!

New cards and invitations from Rubbergob arrived today and we couldn't be more delighted with them! They are modern but kinda retro too, dont you think?

The girls behind Rubbergob are Rachael Barkess, Graphic Designer and artist and her business partner Janine Finnie. They have a 2 bird company that produces designs and illustrations for all sorts of surfaces and products.

I'm kinda chuffed too that we are the only kids store in Sydney to stock them....until others find out about them of course!
More styles instore.... and my personal fave is the chook and owl invite.. too too cute!

My Very Messy Room

Our Very 1st Post!! Hello!
I couldnt begin my blog without sharing with you this book that a friend and supplier Emma from hazyjane gave me. It's called My Very Messy Room by Elizabeth and Henry Stanton 1978. Emma found it at a book sale near her home.
How apt is the title for me and my little store! I think the little girl even looks a little like me as a child, with her long straight hair, no fringe and very orange skivvy!! And soooo our 'My Messy Room' colours! Ironic!
