Christmas at Kew – A Feast of Lights

Christmas at Kew

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go …but the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be, on your own front door”

When the voice of Bing Crosby fills our home, we know its time for Christmas. Time for our silver reindeer to adorn our mantel piece, the Christmas lights to dazzle our tree, and Santa, the wizards and every little ornament come out of its box ready to be celebrated. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and my favorite holiday.

This year we’re staying in London and experiencing a snuggly Christmas. I wonder if we will indeed get a white Christmas. It has been so cold this winter that I wouldn’t be surprised if we did. Little M would be thrilled if we woke to snow on Christmas morn.

A little over a year ago I introduced you to Mama Owl – an online shop specializing on wonderful knitted garments for our kids.

The shop has become a firm favourite of mine because it really makes my knit loving heart beat a little faster and I thought I will show you some news and make sure that new readers also benefit.

You can find the finest brands from the wool front like Oeuf NYC, Misha+Puff, Esencia, Mormor etc but also some exquisite organic brands to compliment the wardrobe, such as Soor Plom & Tiny Cottons.

And remember – a high quality knitted jumper or suit {or…} keeps you warm and can be handed down for generations.

And I find knitted garments on tiny baby just so cute!

And as you can clearly see – wool can be so chic and cool.

A new brand of cashmere for children aged 1-8 called Karajan to provide a touch of luxury to everyday family life with reasonably priced, machine washable cashmere in designs that are at once classic and playful.

Based in London it was started by two friends, Kate & Karen. Karen witnessed how much her daughters loved to wear her cashmere jumpers and the idea started…

Supersoft cashmere, perfect for children’s delicate skin. And the pieces can easily be passed on to siblings or friends.

My boy was so happy when he so the star cardigan and I told him it was for him. It is one of his favourites… it is cosy and light and also easy to put on and take off when it gets a little warmer. He does not like heavy knits, but a cashmere cardi… he cannot wait to wear again :)

And I love that pointy hat… she looks so cute in it… and the ear flaps are perfect with this windy weather we are having.
