Tiny Kooka & A Giveaway ♥

I love supporting Irish business whenever I can, especially when it comes to baby and children items as I find it so difficult to find Irish businesses specialising in these types of products. It's even better when the business offers products which are handmade and anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love handmade pieces, they are far more special than anything you could buy in a store, a true keepsake to treasure forever. You can imagine my delight when I stumbled across Tiny Kooka and their gorgeous keepsake animals made out of your baby's and child's clothing or any piece of clothing which has a sentimental value to you. When I looked on their beautifully designed website I fell in love with their cute doggie keepsake and their adorable rabbit keepsake, an image appeared in my mind of Tyler Lee being a toddler and carrying his little bunny around everywhere with him, such a sweet thought!

I ordered the keepsakes for Tyler Lee's first Christmas and sent ten of my favourite newborn babygrows of his off to Co. Wexford, where Tiny Kooka is based and couldn't wait to see the result! The lady behind Tiny Kooka is Elis, a lovely lady with a real talent for her craft, her keepsakes and other pieces which are available on the Tiny Kooka website are absolutely stunning, her pieces are very special indeed. It's amazing what she can create out of pieces of clothing. Do be warned however that if you're ordering a keepsake for a special occasion that there is a four to six week turnaround on them so if you're looking for something in a hurry you probably won't be able to get it on time but Tiny Kooka also offer some beautiful pre-made items such as their Irish Dancer and Fairy rag dolls which are all handmade in Ireland.

Tyler Lee's keepsakes arrived just in time for Christmas and I was in awe of them, they're beautiful. What I love about them is that when I look at the patchwork and see all the different babygrows cherished memories come to mind, memories of my baby boy when he was a newborn and so much smaller than he is now! Tyler Lee is especially in love with his rabbit keepsake who we've named Blue, he sleeps with him in his cot every night. The bunny keepsake has some added extras which are optional when ordering on the Tiny Kooka website. I wanted Tyler Lee's name and his date of birth stitched into the bunny and I love how it turned out. His bunny also arrived in a personalised tote bag with the Tiny Kooka logo and Tyler's name on it, this is also an optional extra when ordering a keepsake. It now hangs on the door in his nursery, filled with all his little toys. His doggie keepsake is named Patch, due to the sweet little patch on his eye. He sits by Tyler Lee's bookcase and is a lovely addition to his nursery, he sometimes lays against him when playing in his room and it's so sweet to see him doing this.

I really love the keepsakes and they're something for Tyler Lee to treasure forever. They are finished to perfection and are such a sweet and sentimental thing to have in his nursery. The doggie and rabbit keepsakes without any personalised extras is €39.00 each and are available on the Tiny Kooka website.
