the fairy and the queen...

Yesterday was the Halloween parade and party at Aspen's school....can I even tell you how excited London was to be there....she was the hit at circle time!

London just followed in her sister's footsteps all morning long....with a little less listening than her sister does though!

My queen in the parade with one of her little buddies!

tinsel, glitter, and all things sparkly!

Aspen has been asking to do Christmas decorating at the shop everyday this week, and finally late Thursday our first batch of Christmas ornaments and trees arrived...of course she loaded up all the bottoms of the feather trees full of ornaments before I even got prices on things!

We both loved these little vintage looking parakeets....which are glass of course...and I was trying to pry them out of little missie's hands! You have to see this little box in real life to appreciate just how amazing it is....all designed by my mom...the woman who can manage to get more done in a day than I can ever hope to! She made this little ditty...and seven aprons in a day for me!

Can you even stand this little darling? I feel like this is doll form..complete with wreath in her hands!

Ah, I wish my little world was always this sparkly...I just love this time of year! So fun to design and create things, whether they end up clothing or decorations!

Peace, love and joy...well maybe not joy...

This morning when we got in the car, I told Aspen we were taking Christmas pics...she said she didn't want to...I totally figured I would get her to change her mind because she is usually good about taking photos...well not today...she wanted nothing to do with any of it, as you can see. I told her I would show her these pictures when she was older and tease her! There are definitely ones worse than what I am sharing is all I can say!

None the less, this is the Peace, Love and Joy dress for Christmas in shades of red, green and aqua...a little more traditional colors than my usual styling. I love the big bell sleeve on it...kind of fun for a twist of something different!

I think bottom one was about as good as it got for me today...definitely not interested in pictures is all I can say!

Gingerbread Lattes and Pumpkin Bread...

Inspired by the flavors of the season, this is the first of the new Christmas dresses...the Gingerbread Latte Peasant dress...a slightly longer version with just the one layer, a little twist on my French Farmhouse peasant dress.

Perfect for the whole season, whether your little one is sitting on Santa's lap or you're at a friends house for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner....or a chilly day at the beach...

check this little darling out!!

How cute is this little 3 year old...minus her two triplet brothers? Her mommy came in to pick out a special outfit for their 3rd birthday photos, and I think she may have just found the perfect thing!!! Don't you wish every girl could be decked out in Pipsqueak Couture everyday? They just look too darling for words, and now I am off to create some more Christmas inventory! I just couldn't resist showing you this photo!
