New Items In the Shop!








I just finished these two pieces as my first few boy items for the shop, I'm also almost finished with a cute sunsuit that is from a vintage design. It is turning out really cute, and if you follow me on Instagram, you probably caught a peek of what it is starting to look like. These two seersucker pieces were fun to make and I think they will be really cute for summer time fun!

I just realize as I started this post, that it is by blog anniversary on Wednesday! Six years has past since I first started this blog. So fun to go back and look at the first post and how all the photos were much smaller! Lots of friends made, and wonderful opportunities opened up through this blog for me.  It is also fun to think of all the trends that were in blogs in these six years. More blogs use to do giveaways for following, or tagging people to answer questions about themselves. Rarely do you see that anymore. A lot of bloggers have slowed way down too, and instead have gone to Instagram. I try not to duplicate photos on here from my IG, like I have seen on other blogs, I feel that it's cheating somehow, but that's just me.  I'm still here for the long haul, like I have said before, because it is a record for me and I'm not really doing it for too much else. So those of you that follow and read, thanks, and I hope you enjoy my slice of life, even though it has become more sparingly on here hahahah.

Last week was spent keeping Nicole company via Skype while she packed up her current flat to move to a different location in London. Scary thing when you are doing it on your own in a foreign country, but she did it, and it feels like I was right there along with her!  She is now unpacking, and today I took a virtual tour through her neighborhood on facetime! Love technology when it works well.

Thanks again to those who have followed, and to those who are new. Don't be shy, leave me a comment, because I love to make new blog friends!

  3. First of all, I must say that I love, LOVE how you photographed the boy clothing with the sunlight falling softly upon it - it gives such a timeless quality to the image. You "flavor" for boys is spot on. Second - ??? 6 years??? That is a HUGE accomplishment. Congrats. I think you are doing a wonderful job at it!

    1. Thanks Carolina :) I actually have fun making these, and now I will be doing some little shirts with some special touches to them. I'm going to try and make them more than just a shirt. Recently I bought this cool shirt for my daughter's boyfriend for Christmas that was made in a limited production. It had this cool secret pocket on the inside and other subtle touches to it. I'm going to swipe that idea and see what I can come up with.
      I can't believe it has been six years either! I remember starting the year Caitlin was finishing high school. It kept me from dwelling on that chapter being closed in my life. I've had fun doing this blog.
