Bright, Fun and Happy ….

Hello gals…well lookee here…I nearly fell off my chair, when I saw this pushchair in the New Cath Kidston catalogue! Now if I had little ones I would definitely be saving my pennies for this little number!

When my kiddies were little I searched up and down the country for the right pram for my little ones…I finally found it in a shop in Brentwood, Essex…I had never seen one and have never seen another since…


It was this Ninni Nana Pram/pushchair (above and above) that was sooooo bright and fun and I am talking some 16 years ago now…when prams were very pastel in colour. Well I suppose you would expect this type of pram from me eh!

The brightness didnt stop at the pram either…even Daz used to wear brights and flowers…it soooo suited the two of them…I wish that I still had some of their clothes! I used to hang their spotty coats and jackets on my coat racks long after they had grown out of them…

The colours and patterns of the clothing back then, were so pretty, we used to go to a shop on the Roman Road in Bow, London E13 called *Jacks* and we used to spend a fortune! the labels that they used to stock were Portofino, cakewalk, oilily and a few others.

I was addicted to this style of clothing and loved the way they used to look in them, coz you could clash everything….and boys clothing was so boring back then…daz and Rosie was always dressed in the brightest attire…fun, bright and happy ๐Ÿ™‚

Rosie and I have had a right laugh this afternoon…checking out all these pictures, plus others that were too embarrassing to show! Like my hair over the years! thats a whole other post on its own! LOL!

Its so great to get out the old pictures…isn’t it! I felt I just had to share them with you all, to let you see that even back then…all those years ago, colour was always my thing…yes that CK pushchair has made my weekend…I am so glad that there is finally a bright and happy pram out there…for like minded Mums and Dads!

So they are both grown up now…Boo hoo! Rosie is sweet sixteen and Daz is sweet 19, so I don’t have any say in what they wear! even when they are spending my money!!…sad isnt it!

I love them to bits…and its been a real pleasure bringing them up….I wouldn’t have missed it for the world!…

Now how can I think of an excuse to buy that CK spotty pram to put my dollies in!!! LOL!Love Happy x

    So gutted my days of pushchairs are nearly over. Mine is falling apart but cannot warrant buying a new one now molly is nearly 2. Red and white polka dots do it for me every time – my whole house would be red and white spots and stripes given half a chance. Not sure where the obsession came from but there sure is plenty out there at the moment to keep feeding it!

    Pastels – yuck! I would always go to the second-hand stores to find the bright colors for my Teen (who's Rosie's age) when she was little. Then came along Pre-Teen with her reddish hair and white complexion – not a bright color kid. I was disappointed! But now her fave colors are black and red! (Even though they still don't match her skin tone!)

    Well, I've got to be honest, the CK red and white spotty is fun but nowhere near as good as the one you had. I remember searching everywhere for something different 22 years ago. Push chairs were definitely improving but way beyond the normal budget and still very sensible and slightly pre-occupied with the folding technology. Love all your pattern, I used to make my daughters dresses and would always have something like flowery sleeves with a spotty dress panel. People thought I did it because we were poor, but I loved to make something special for them.Adele

    I have that pushchair except mine isn't Caths. It's just plain boring blue, if only it had been around 19 months ago. I don't think my OH would be too happy if I bought another especially at that price 'hehe'.Love your kiddie pics!((hugs))Beki xxx
