Charlie & Rosie have recently launched a new website and it’s packed to the rafters with all kinds of lovely DIY and custom art products. My personal favourite is the Love You Mum cushion, which comes with 9 fabric markers for colouring in the shapes around the edges. You can also have a cushion made from your child’s artwork, or buy a blank piece for them to decorate from scratch.
Many of the Charlie & Rosie designs are created by local artists, which assists with getting the work of talented local artists out there, but also provides a beautiful template for creativity at home. Alongside these cushions, Charlie & Rosie also sell tea towels, clocks, pillowcases, children’s tees, and jumpers.

Online shopping is by far my preferred way to shop, especially given the amazing array of handmade designers and artists across Australia and the globe! The icing on the cake when it comes to online finds is free postage deals, so today I’ve assembled a few of my top picks for Mother’s Day shopping without the delivery costs. Happy shopping!
