How I love Pinterest. Just found the most adorable shoes for your kids. Schier Shoes is on top of their game right now. It's just one of those brands that does everything right! The leopard ones are priceless. Velskoen (pronounced “fell-skoon”) were originally developed from the footwear of the Khoikhoi tribe in the 1600′s, and are the predecessor of the modern desert boot. Affectionately called ‘vellies’, Schier Shoes – are made from vegetable-dyed Kudu leather and are hand made in Swakopmund, Namibia by eight Damara men who create 20 pairs an afternoon. These boots are made to last and can be passed down through to younger children, or you can donate them back to Schier who will re-home them and then forward you a postcard of thanks from their new owner.

If you haven’t heard of Lomography, it’s time to educate yourself. Whether you are a seasoned photographer or a self-confessed newbie, everyone can be a lomographer. Lomography is a pretty recent type of photography invented by the Lomographic Society, founded in the early nineties in Austria. The concept of Lomography encompasses an interactive, vivid, blurred and crazy way of life. Now you can really take cool shots of your kids!

Donna Wilson set up her company in 2003 after making odd knitted creatures for her final show at the Royal College of art. The creatures sold out and since then she has built her business designing and making a collection of countless adorable products for the home from cushions and blankets to plates and cups. Everything she produces is made by hand in England and has, in her own words, "a unique style with the aim of making people smile".
