New sponsor! Vintage Chenille

I'm happy to announce a new sponsor today!
Leah of Vintage Chenille is joining us with her darling children's toy and blanket creations, all unique, using vintage materials.  How cool is that?!
Here's a little bit about Leah:
I live in a small country town just outside of Mildura in Northern Victoria, Australia. I'm a part time district nurse and a married full time mum to 3 little boys and a girl, aged 9, 7, 4 and 2. We live on an acre block with lots of pets and a garden. I opened both of my online stores whilst on maternity leave with baby No. 4, our unexpected little girl. It seemed like the perfect time; I was so inspired to create "girly" things! Crafting has been my passion for as long as I can remember, but there is only so much that you can make for little boys! I also began to sell at craft markets at this time and stay up too late sewing and reading craft blogs. I love anything old/vintage and visit op shops whenever and whereever I can, searching for vintage chenille. Anybody that knows me is constantly on the look out for me too, which is great!
Here are some of my faves of Leah's creations (some are rattles!) from her Etsy store:
Aren't they so cute?  And I love the vintage materials!
Welcome, Vintage Chenille!
If I had a baby or toddler, I would sooo be getting him or her a little elephant (because I like them!).  What about you?  Check out Leah's shop and tell me, what's your fave?


  1. The blue dog is cute.

  2. That little terrier is so cute! I'm hoping to make an elephant for my shop soon...just as soon as I can done with all the interviews I've been having!

  3. I love the scottie dog. It's so cute!
