Marie and the Bee

what's up with baby goods?!
k-chan and i have started to stock up on the "bare essentials" these past few weeks, talk about a shock to the system! or should i say my wallet!
i thought someone had snuck (or is that sneaked?!) into the store during the night and slapped on extra zeros to all the price tags!
i think anything with the words "for new born babies" is an excuse to add a few extra zeros here and there...

but to tell the truth, it's all pretty exciting though. i never knew there was such a huge range of baby goods out there! and talk about cute!
(gotta put a stop to this clucky-ness!)

not quite a bare essential, but i couldn't resist (yet again...) getting this 100% woolen knitted mouse (not a rat!) from the french toy brand latitude enfant.
by the way
her name is marie.
here's praying that my little one snugs up to this cute mouse and doesn't throw it onto the floor.

i then spotted a beautiful range of baby wear from dimples, known for their use of high quality soft organic cottons and merino wool.
dimples are from new zealand so i quickly gave my mum a call and asked her to check out the price back home. turns out these new zealand made baby goods are cheaper to buy here in hong kong rather than back in new zealand! wtf!
decided on a soft 100% cotton summer blanket with a dimples signature hand-embroidered bee.

i never dreamed that shopping for baby goods could be so satisfying!

hahahaha, i have to be careful with my use of exclamation marks. i have a tendency to add them in here and there...

dimples does other embroidered things too like ladybirds, solders, boats etc, but the bee is kinda cute.
i know why you like it!!

there we go again...
