Farmyard Fun at the HC4Kids Blog

It's time to return to the country, round up your cattle and yell it's milking time!!! Maybe?? ... but don't tell me you can't smell that fresh country air when you see items as fantastic as these. From tractor singlets to chicken dresses and totes, wall stickers to cupcakes - there is something for boys, girls and mums.

Again no contribution from me but I would have to say my favourite items this week are:
i) the John Deer singlet from Baby Galah
ii) the Big boy patchwork cushion from Chicken Ink. Creative
and iii) the farm animal cupcakes from Cupcake Angels

Paper Butterfly Mobile ...

I posted this hand cut double sided paper butterfly mobile to Corinne in ACT for her daughter's room. The combination of paper colours used were dark pinks, medium pinks, pale pinks, plus oranges, yellows and creams. This is the large size mobile, and has 17 strands of butterflies hanging from a painted white timber frame. I can also make a smaller version with only 9 strands of butterflies. Each strand comprises of three different sized butterflies and no two strands will have the same combination of papers.

To purchase one of these beautiful mobiles simply email me at for a quote.
