Sensational Six – Summer By The Sea

UPDATE: For the latest sensational six collections of handmade gifts for kids, head to the Sensational Six Archive.

My favourite place to be at any time of year is by the sea, there is just something extra special about the sound of lapping water, a cool salty breeze and sand between your toes. This handmade collection of nautical goodies are just the perfect little accessories for summer by the sea.

Curated by Kylie of Babes & Tots Designs.
