All things nice - 5 Star Baby!

Now my Miss Spice has quite a wardrobe and it is considerably better than mine. Half of her ensemble is made up of beautiful, handcrafted, frocks. I had to giggle when a friend of mine said that maybe she should return to work to fund her baby girl's wardrobe.....so true, so true!
How she ended up with those exquisite goldilocks still astounds me...
Here she is modelling one of her dresses created by our 'All things nice' business for today -
5 Star Baby!

You may know Katie from 5 Star Baby! already - she is a regular on the market scene and has a unique range of creative and beautiful products that I have no doubt you will love. You can come and visit her gorgeous stall at Woodend on Sunday June 5.
A little bit of love,
A little bit of fun,
And lots & lots of cute!

Are you more sugar or spice?
Oh, definitely spice. I eat lots of sugar to compensate!!

What inspired you to start your own business?
Our little 5 star babies of course!!
Our venture began 6 years ago, gorgeous different things were hard to find, and overpriced, so it all began, my sister (who was studying teaching) and I (who was desperate for something other than washing, feeding, baby vomit, and well, you get the idea!!) we would get together in uni holidays and sew our little hearts out. It was chaotic and wonderful. 5 star, baby! Is all my own now, as my sister has gone on to teach full time, but she remains a huge source of inspiration and encouragement in everything that I do.

How did you name your business?
A bit of an inside joke between my sister and I, but let’s just say, between us, we had 4 (and one on the way) babies, and well, we think they are 5 star!!

What is your favourite piece from your own range?
My all time favourite thing is my signature headband. No matter what I have in my range, it always stays. It is a must have item, and you can never be happy with just one!!
Where else can we check you out?

Thanks for being a part of 'All things nice' Katie :)
