Brambly Hedge on Etsy

If you’ve read my blog for a longer period, you’d realise I love specific children’s books. I collect vintage children books on little houses and little mice … my largest collection being Beatrix Potter, Brambly Hedge and of course, the wonderful House by Mouse by George Mendoza.

Etsy seller Ella from Jerusalem contacted me with her cutest little Brambly Hedge characters on Etsy.

Some of my favourite images from Jill Barklem’s books are Dusty and Poppy’s flour and dairy farms. Remember them?

Well, how enchanting are Ella‘s Dusty and Poppy? Perfect for a little girl :)

And what about Ella‘s happy Peter Rabbit from the Beatrix Potter characters?

Such the perfect gift for a baby shower! Jump over to Ella’s Etsy store!

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
