Why, this is my new goddaughter! Remember I talked about her here? Well, as a little gift to her to say thank you for choosing me to be one of her special godmothers, I asked the very creative Leah over at Hyena in Petticoats if she could make me one of her special custom made 'nongs'. Do you know what a nong is? It's this fabulous creature you see above, with lovely long limbs and a number of gorgeous, unique details. Click here and here to see a few other fab examples of Leah's nongs.
So from Amsterdam to Adelaide, Leah and I discussed the finer points of what this special nong should look like (buttons for eyes? no buttons for eyes, fabric choices? anything with red, she loves red etc etc), and then straight from Adelaide to Sydney flew this special creature, into the arms of my darling goddaughter. Her and her parents have named her 'nina' - so nina nong is now in her new home, and no doubt will have her limbs nicely chewed by the time teething season is over.
Oh just look at that smile!
