Now that I've gotten my little rant over and done with, I would like to move onto today's instalment of Tuesday's Temptations...
I was a the Magnolia Square market at St Kilda Town Hall a few weeks ago and stumbled upon a very delightful stall and it's equally delightful stall-holder Amber. Down to the Woods is the name and whimsy is the game. My eye was first caught by their range of paper paraphernalia which includes interactive cards and vintage-inspired children's' books.
Such as this one; Say hello to the sweetest Red Riding Book ever...
And in this one, Red Riding Hood loses her eye as the page is turned. The illustrations are really enchanting and the book is actually a reproduction of an original book - year unknown.
Down to the Woods also create these great freckle rugs made from felted balls. Not only are they colourful and extremely tactile, they are made from a natural material - pure wool. Great for kids rooms or to use as a designated play area for your kidlets.

There are many gorgeous shops popping up all over the place (on and offline), but Down to the Woods is by far one of the sweetest shops around with a unique offering of gifts and accessories for kids and their rooms.
Or if you're a big kid like me, you'll be coveting some of their delights for yourself.
Don't forget to leave me a comment if you would like me to continue on with Tuesday's Temptations. Otherwise we will bid farewell to the series.
