The Little Man's Playmat

Gorgeous Autumn days spent outside sipping tea, knitting, watching my girl potter and my little man explore the world....and his feet.

With the grass still damp from morning dew Monsieur Remoulade was in need of somewhere to roly poly about on and old paint dropsheets from the laundry do not a playmat make!

One sunshiney bright op-shopped doona cover, a vintage sheet border, two daffodil yellow vintage bath towels, some red polka dots and some rare time on old Jan thanks to the magic that is my hubby.

An outdoor play mat for Mr.Smiley to ponder the bright blue sky from.

We watch the trees, crinkle our toes in the grass and marvel at the ever changing clouds.

We listen to the rustle of leaves, the kookaburra laughing, the scrub turkey scratching about.

They explore, they play, they learn and grow...and I try desperately to soak it all in. Slow down precious ones!

Joining in with all these gorgeous goodies.


  1. Fabulous, Steph. And appropriately large. I couldn't stand all those tiny little playmates that one roll would see them off. Good size, colourful and fun. x

  2. Steph your little man is just the cutest little one I ever did see. That play mat is so very soft and squishy looking for your little cherub to roll around on. :) xx

  6. This is all just utter gorgeousness! Look at how your little man is growing, and the beautiful mat you have made for him is divine. Sigh (with happiness). xx

  7. I could just jump through the screen and eat him:)
    The play mat looks great and big enough for mother and big sister to enjoyt he Autumn days. We are into jumpers, jeans and beanies in this part of the world.

  8. You make me want to lie on a playmat Steph. What a gorgeous little man you have xx
