So I have to admit I’m really not sure about Halloween slowly infiltrating Australia society. I can see the arguments on both sides, I mean sure the kids enjoy dressing up and it’s a fun way to display our inner monsters to the world, but it’s yet another import from our friends across the water. So I say why not display your inner monster everyday, find me the little boy who doesn’t love a few ghouls and goblins…. So in the spirit of things (no pun intended) here are a few halloween inspired finds from your local Infancy store.
1. Glow in the Dark Havaianas $24.95
2. Big Scary Monster Tee from Moppit $34.00
3. Paperplane Tee from Munster $39.95
Our classic red and white spot tea sets are back in stock ready for Christmas and are the perfect way to keep your little ones busy this summer with teddy tea parties in the garden. This set is also available in a very sweet pink and white combo but lets face it red and white never goes out of style and it’s that perfect festival touch for the season that is almost upon us. For more information on the tea sets visit here.
Last week on my day off I was cleaning out the pantry and decided the best thing to do to use up some bits and pieces would be to bake some Baby Carrot Cakes. This happens to be every now and again – but I love nothing better than the chance to create something that people will enjoy. For a great recipe to make your own Baby Carrot Cakes visit: http://www.cuisine.com.au/recipe/Baby-carrot-cakes I just swapped the walnuts for pecans and the lemon juice in the icing with orange juice but that is totally a matter of taste , and speaking of taste they did taste delightful and brought smiles to the many who got to share them.
Having been keeping this blog updated for a while now I have to admit I find it a tricky part of my job, you see I want to share all the beautiful things we get in store but I worry that it seems like I’m just here trying to sell you things – which is not my intention at all (that’s why we have our online store www.infancy.com.au – just kidding!).
As such I wanted to let you know I’m going to be widening the scope of this blog. In the coming weeks I will endeavor to write something new for you everyday (well nearly everyday anyway) and I will tell you a little bit of everything and anything.
I pledge to not only tell you about new products and things happening in store but also to share funny stories, recipes, tips and tricks. I’m also planning on profiling all of our lovely staff for you and then who knows what next. I also want to opening the floor up to you – tell me what you think, what you’d like to talk about, give us your point of view. This could be an interesting experiment, so stay tuned…
We at Infancy have long been lovers of the Tortellini Cushion and we are just wild about the latest colour releases. Made with love by local company Studio Skinky (really really local – they’re just around the corner from our Newtown store in Erskineville) and they are all designed and made right here in Sydney. As well as being the most supportive breast-feeding cushion around they make great playtime and relaxation cushions for the little ones themselves whilst they are still getting their balance. Drop by a store to wrap your hands around one and you’ll see what we mean.
We are so pleased to be able to welcome this beautiful range of wall stickers from boutique company Love Mae to the Infancy family, they are not only removable but because they are all made from fabric they are completely repositionable, scrunchable and even washable – otherwise known as perfect for our favourite little grubby people. Plus – they’re stunning. I’m convinced that before long I’ll have them all on my own walls at home. We have a wide selection in store now, including the build-a-tree, forest creatures and deer pack all featured in the above pictures, the spring and summer dress up dolls:
and just in case you think that your little boys have once again been forgotten – vintage cars, a boys’ forest creatures and check this out:
