Little bitta' pretty one...

On a recent rare and bright sunny day...London was my little model...a perfect, sweet model...sporting the new tiny coquette set! I designed this style top as a fun and different option than a plain tee or tank with our skirts and ruffle pants...darling for a hot summer if we could just start to have a few of those days!

Notice now London will again wear hair clips and headbands if I did that happen? You never know what passes through that little mind, but I will take advantage of it while I can, and hopefully when we do our professional shoot in June, that will still be her attitude!

She's pretty hard to resist with that blossom on her head and little smirk on her face!

London Valentina is TWO!

Happy birthday precious London! London is showing off a first sneak peek at our 4th of July goods! This is the patriotic pixie dress...London is obsessed with this fabric, can I just say I love having two girls that love fabric and girlie clothes as much as I do {they both keep picking the exact same fabric to have dresses made out of, when I show them individually not knowing what the other picked!}

What a blessed day it is, Miss London Valentina turned two! Hard to believe two years has flown right by me, and my sweet, little babe that looked like that, has grown into this....eating her scoop of cotton candy ice cream at a little vintage style soda straw!

London was quite agreeable today, when I asked if she would wear a bow in her hair she happily agreed she would {which seems to be a rarity lately}...All this child wanted for her birthday was a toys, just pie! So thankfully, the best pie maker in town, my mama, made her a fresh blackberry pie!

Here the girls are just before we walked out the door to go to London's party...all dressed for a party, singing happy birthday! long it has taken to get a picture like many stages of jealousy, and someone not paying attention to mommy taking pics...and now, two sweet buddies, anxious for a party picture together.....I got to thinking what Aspen looked like as she turned two...and had to post a picture just to refresh your memory...she looks like a little pixie! I guess she still does have the fairy bit about her....or should I say angelic...her golden ringlets all about her make people say that almost daily...but don't let her fool you, she is the mischieveous one...and her sister is the one who sits there eating a proper meal, and putting the toys away that her Aspen refuses to!

Now that I have digressed comparing the girls...back to the little London is picking her treats...all the kids were fascinated with this wall of candy...seriously, why did I even bother with ice cream and floats...all they could talk about was when were they going to pick out their favorite candies!
How much do you love this of my sweet customers gave this to me! She and I both love this line, and she happened upon a sale, and could afford one of these little darlings, and after her daughter outgrew it, she blessed me with this fab party could it not be London's birthday dress? I will have to gather pics from my phone, as my camera batteries died at the party, and I had to resort to my phone to snap stay tuned for more party goodness!

Cheers to being out of the baby stage, and on to toddlerhood!

The first of the new summer designs!

I am so thrilled to show you these photos....these are the first two summer pieces I will be listing online shortly! Pink Paisley Photography just took the most darling photos of this set! Cassie and I have the same whimisical taste....if you know me...then you know how I love things to have a whimsical, vintage feel to them, and that is exactly Cassie's mindset as well!

So this is the French Frolic halter dress...and bloomers....What you don't really see, is that this dress has a darling little girl with her pink glitter balloon screenprinted on the apron....her dress is embellished in vintage lace and she has ribbons adorning the balloon. The dress is a great piece that should wear as a dress for the first year, and a top later on...the back is shirred and will adjust to fit perfectly as your little girl grows.

And to top it off every little girl needs some fantastic, edgy bloomers...these are our twist on a traditional bloomer pant...vintage lace trim, cinched knee and large bows at the knee as well.

I was showing these photos to Aspen, as per usual she loved the photos...she told me she wanted a pair of the shoes, and she liked the cake b/c it looked like little pillows! Love that child! And, if you love the head piece...of to Miss Ruby Sue you must go, she made up this little ditty just to match this outfit! Now I am off to finish sewing up some Easter this will have to appease you for now! More soon I promise!

Finally! I can breathe again!

Yes, the day has finally arrived...when I am no longer thinking, "just two more car loads and I will have moved the rest of things I insist on keeping back to my house." Everything is all cleaned up and finished...and onto some real business now! So just before my phone died on me for good, I was spending some time with Lauren, my local Matilda Jane TK, and she taught me how to make my own button! So check it on out over there to your right, and please use it! Of course now that I have it all down, I am having a few fun photoshoots coming up, and I will probably want to use a different photo...that is just how I am! But for now, there you go!!! Grab it, love it, and refer a friend!

It's funny, as you start to push out the negative things in your life, all that is left is the room for positive...and I am positive that is just what is happening in my life! The last week I was open, I came in to check my email, and low and behold, there are two perfect, online business connections I had been looking to make for quite some time...asking me to partner with them! And can I even tell you, almost every day since then, that is exactly what is happening! Bring on the positive baby! I am ready to head full force into moving my business forward online! And for you that means lots of fun, new creations coming your way looking better than ever before! And for my girls it means taking the time to have a break during the day to head to the zoo, or the park and do the things some of you lucky stay at home moms get to do more frequently than I ever have! Cheers to my sanity coming back to me!
