Santa's coming!

The girls had their pictures taken with Santa on Sunday...they loved him! Mom snapped this pic while I was getting them on Santa's lap. We did get a darling picture of them, although in each picture one little one looked perfect, and the other not so much!

maybe Christmas cards...

Maybe today is a good day to start Christmas cards....and then maybe not!

The girls were dressed sort of matching this morning...so I thought I may try and do Christmas photos...think again...London refused to be part of the photo op! Aspen was left sitting all alone to watch her sister throw a fit!

Christmas skirts are here!

I just patterned a new skirt for the holidays! It is the cutest thing on ever! It is such a full skirt than even Aspen asked if she could do ballet while she was wearing it! It features darling Christmas fabrics, and some that are not Christmas all in tiered ruffles asymetrically throughout the skirt, sort of a retro look to the whole thing....

There are more detailed pics on the website, but Aspen liked sitting next to the Eloise tree at the shop the most, so she behaved the best for these pictures...when does it get easier for your model to start listening to you?

my new window designer....

So yesterday while Aspen was at school, I started to get all the Christmas decorations out and ready to tear apart the shop windows for redecoration. I had this idea that I wanted to take one of my children's mannequins and dress her up in antique trims. So then after Aspen woke up from her nap I asked her if she wanted to help me decorate for Christmas, and she excitedly said yes, she sure did! So I get the box of trims out, and off she went decorating this mannequin for an hour or so....Those of you who know me, know that this is so close to what I would have done, you wouldn't even believe it! Hard to believe I can now hire my 2 and a half year old to decorate my shop for me! It was so much fun!!!

She stuck birds and glittered stars and everything darling all onto this mannequin! I think it is perfect for my vision of my Christmas windows!
