Perky Beanies {review+giveaway}


Be still my heart -- handmade knit hats and gorgeous photography props by Perky Beanies!


{and this lovely children's photography is by Twice As Nice photography in the Boston area -- check her out!!}


How cute are these boys and their Perky Beanies?  Simply adorable!



Lori, the knitting queen behind the shop, started making these for her photographer friends, and they encouraged her to start Perky Beanies!  What is so wonderful with Lori and Perky Beanies is that your entire order is up to you!  Custom handmade knits!


Maybe you are loving this sweet little bear knit hat?  {check out the sweet bows Lori can attach!}  The high quality yarn-- even some homespun!!-- makes these goodies not only great for that soft newborn skin, but also for all day wear for your sweet kiddo!



It's not only for kids either, because like I said before, Perky Beanies can really be made to order!!  That means colors, style, puffs, ears, strings, appliques... whatever you can think of!  You won't be disappointed, that's for sure!


While Perky Beanies may have started with Lori's sweet handknit beanies, she has delved into creating all sorts of fabulous photography props!  Now she knits these lovely baby pods, bowls, hanging cocoons, and more!  Lori was so sweet to send us the sweet olive baby bowl to test out, and we've loved it!  A sweet friend just welcomed a baby boy, and so we tried it out!  {and, I'm a very very hobby-ish, not pro, photographer, so if I can use it, anyone can!}  It is incredibly soft and cozy, and even held up to my girls wrapping up their baby dolls!  Again, can I stress how rough and tough my sweet girlies can be?  :)  Now THAT'S quality handmade knits!


Yay!!  Lori is offering up a 25% discount coupon code for Perky Beanies to one lucky reader of The Ivy Twines!
