Xmas with Sonny Angels

Posted on by


With Halloween over, we can now focus on Christmas (apart from the 2 birthdays we have next week – bean 2 and 3).  These Christmas Sonny Angels are on there way, we have the 4 dolls but as always there are a couple of surprise versions you could get.  We also have these Christmas Sonny Angel baubles arriving.  There are 6 to collect or choose from.  Great stocking fillers or if you have a tradition of collecting a decoration each year – these are sweet.  Also ideal if you’re little one wants a little Christmas cheer brought to their rooms.  They will be up online and available from next week.  You can also pre-order if you’re really eager by emailing info@lilbeans.co.uk.

Stories For Autumn

Posted on by

Stories For Autumn is a lovely decor Etsy shop owned and hand made by Lindsey.  You can pick up the prettiest Christmas baubles, garlands, cushions and hand made prints.  This new business that started last year, is growing pretty quickly for this mum of 2 little ones and I’m sure it’s just the beginning.  The baubles are made in pretty pastel colour combinations and the glitter garlands are delicate, simple and stylish.  Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle?

We love:

It’s just the beginning for Stories For Autumn and can’t wait to see the new creations that come.  Make sure you go and have a look at their Etsy shop, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas now we’re in October surely.  Oh, and there is also a Halloween garland too!

Our mini q&a with Lindsey:

Who do you live with and where?
I live in Manchester with my husband Dave, my three year old whirlwind Henry and little Ivy who recently turned 1.

What made you start Stories For Autumn and how do you want it to grow?
Stories For Autumn was born last year when I began making garlands whilst on maternity leave. I then moved onto Christmas decorations, which were so popular through social media and Etsy, that we’ve just launched our second collection.
I started designing cushions and prints for children’s interiors earlier this year and in recent months have seen them travel the world via Etsy as well as being sold in so many wonderful stores worldwide.
I’m looking to grow the company in the coming months, designing new collections and branching out into other areas. Exciting times ahead!
What have you found tough about motherhood?  What makes you laugh and heart melt about your children?
What have I found tough about motherhood? Its just pretty hard in general. Little sleep, and always something to worry about. I would say though, it all seemed to be easier the second time around. Or maybe I had just found my feet by the time Ivy was born. Seeing so many others going through similar things on Instagram certainly helped. Nice to always have someone to chat to at a 3am feed.

The best thing is how Henry and Ivy are together. They laugh and chatter constantly and I can see them being great friends.
