My little Minnies in action

As you all know I love kids. You know what else I love? Seeing those wee ones in a SMarie ~ Handmade Minnie Mouse dress! LC and Arina know how to work it, and I am L O V I N G it! Once LC and her brother get better they are going to be models for my site. IF I can stop squeezing on them long enough to take their pictures that is! Thank you Lacey for sending me a picture of your princess so that I could share it with the masses, and thank you Courtney for letting me monopolize on your children's pure cuteness once they get to feeling better. Oh...and Lacey, I can't wait to see Ms. Thing and Mr. Thing in the wonderful world of Disney sporting their matching duds so you better take tons of pictures!

( do you guys hear that?? Yes, it is my womb aching for a baby)

Tax returns

I finally made up my mind on what I wanted to get with my tax returns. I have a pitiful collection of cookware but I love to cook. I have had to move more times in my life then I would like to admit and unfortunately I have lost a lot of things over the years. Currently I have two pots and two pans all which are pretty dang bad. SO... I was going to get a 5.5 quart round Le Creuset dutch oven for something fresh and fabulous!
BUT.... Kittie had a different idea. Kittie decided that she needed to get a urinary tract infection. So $272 later I have antibiotics and a cat on the mend but no Le Creuset dutch oven. But with a face like this I can't stay upset for too long. And she was a very well behaved patient for the doctor. Poor thing had to get urine extracted with a needle because peeing in a cup was not an option. What a good little girl...

Something old and something blue

I am traveling to the 1950's anyone want to come? I purchased this dress last week and I haven't stopped smiling. I don't buy myself things very often so I am going to hold onto the joy for a while.

Pictures from Ebay seller
I am saving this dress for something special.......

Warm yellow time machine

I have always felt like I should have been born in a different era. Before cell phones, before computers, before there was a TV in every room of the house. The days when life was a little slower, but a beautiful slow like a trickling mountain stream. Simpler times, evening strolls after dinner with no fear, sitting on your front porch on a summer night with the neighbors sipping tea. I can't go to those times, or can I? It may just be clothing, but for some reason it makes me take a deep breath and a smile creeps onto my face every time I put on a piece of vintage clothing.

Recently my mom gave me a coat that she received in the 60's from my meme', it was actually the last coat that her mother bought for her. My meme died when I was almost three years old so I don't have any memories of her, well let me take that back..I have memories but I don't know if they are stories I was told or if they are things that my little two year old brain held onto. Now I have the coat, the coat that is the color of the sun and every time I put it on I feel my mom's and my memes arms around me. This coat is warm, it is fun and it is my time machine.

 Disclaimer: I was tired because I had been up all night finishing a baby quilt that I will show you this weekend, so please just look at my beautiful aunt and the coat... Thank you.
