Making A Home With Handmade Items – Support Small Businesses

It’s no shock with what is currently going on in the climate that small business owners are terrified of the future of there businesses. When in fact they should have nothing to worry about if we all supported one small business per month that could make the difference of sink or swim for them.

Yes you may find you spend a few extra pence or in many cases as things aren’t mass produced and just made to order you may save money too! Please don’t discard small business when looking for your next purchase.

Here I am going to showcase some of my favourite small businesses and the amazing things I have either bought or been gifted from then in return for some social media promotion.

Poppy’s Handmade Bedroom

Above is a picture of some beautiful makes for Poppys nursery. This second time round of decorating a nursery I have gone for a more modern then baby like theme so the decor isn’t outgrown as fast as some baby themed nurseries.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

The amazing wooden rainbow which is bang on theme with the colours of the room is from the amazingly talented Eves Peg Dolls. This not only looks amazing as decor but as Pop becomes more agile with her hands she will be able to use it as a stacking toy, two in one purpose! What’s not to love. They are well painted and very sturdy so I know these will stand the time of a toddler banding and clashing them.

Down the line when she no longer uses them I may commission someone to paint her name,dob and birth weight onto them. What do you think?

Patchwork Pretty

When it came to choosing bedding for Mini P nursery I was really stuck for choice. I didn’t want anything generic but again wanted something to stand the test of time and maybe become a family pass me down.

I went for a beautiful patchwork quilt which is totally unique using off cuts and fat quarters. This is not only beautiful but eco friendly too- it saved many scraps from the bin haha. It fits perfectly in the Ikea Cot that was super affordable at under £40 and has done 2 children!

Word Art

I for one love a bit of word art and this print from Etsy ties in perfectly with the theme and also with a very personal emotional tie to elephants for a friend that’s past. Everytime I look at it I cannot help but smile and remember the loved one.

It cleverly includes lots of words of meaning to Pop such as Sister, Girl, Cute, daughter Etc. You have the option to print these yourself or have the print posted to you.

Boyish Bedroom

We are currently in the middle of redecorating my sons bedroom and he is totally in love with Toy story and Superhero’s so we are going for a mash up of the two!

This amazing framed art always gets comments from people that visit his bedroom, some of the older family members are totally in awe of it. What an amazing unique idea for a gift. Any name can be done so what are you waiting for! Get orders in for Christmas now.

Did any of you spot the gorgeous Woody and Buzz! I asked the lovely Eve Pegs Dolls if she could commission something like this and wow did she delivery! How amazing, hand painted to perfection. Check out her insta you won’t be disappointed.
