This Friday I'm featuring a lovely lady who makes the most beautiful and original cloud themed mobiles you could wish for. I don't mean mobile phones of course, I meant the kind you hang from your ceiling.
As I'm currently putting together our new baby's bedroom, I've been spending a lot of time searching the internet for items to decorate it with. I wanted to get a mobile, something that wouldn't necessarily go over the cot (because I have one of those canopies Ikea sell that's going over the cot) but that could hang on the ceiling and be beautiful and funky to look at, but also engaging for baby over a long period of time. I searched on eBay (often my first port of call), Amazon, Etsy, Folksy and on Facebook (there are loads of groups and pages on Facebook these days!). After spending hours over a period of days searching I found Claire and her mobiles which appear on both Etsy and Facebook.
Claire hand-makes a variety of items including large raindrop, moon and cloud cushions, cloud mobiles and cloud with raindrop mobiles. I knew as soon as I found her page that her items were for me. Bright, eye catching and different. I could really see one of her mobiles working in baby's room. The tough part was deciding what to go for. I must admit I was very tempted by one of her smaller rainbow cloud mobiles (a gorgeous mobile with lots of tiny clouds) but in the end I decided I wanted to make a bold statement with a cloud and raindrops mobile.
