I recently fell head over heals for this color. So pretty.

Cutest crack ever!

I would totally rock these babies! Plus, I love their name “HoneyRider”

Gorgeous dress. Source

Pretty waves I walked in on a cruise I took a few years ago. Ahh wish I were there.

A Few Treasures

I haven’t posted the recent finds from my thrift store treasure hunts lately. I am so in love with thrift store shopping right now, it's crazy. My boys hate going because I take so long. Next time I have to remember to bring more treats. They were both wailing after an hour.
Besides some *stylish* clothes for my boys, seriously I find the cutest shirts for them there including BRAND NEW Batman and Ironman shirts from Old Navy YAY, I found these lovelies over the past few weeks…

I have been on this “vintage and retro” thing lately. I rummage the racks of sheets for old designs. I love the print on the one in this picture. I can’t wait to have a baby girl one day. I plan on making her lots of tops and dresses from these pretties :) 

Look at that tag. 89 CENTS, what a steal that would have been! 

These babies will look quite nice on some fancy headbands.

Oh I am in LOVE with these hankies right now. I have started a collection. I am not really sure what they will be used for but one day they will make something gorgeous! So pretty just the way they are… all delicate and dainty.

Who doesn’t love baby shoes?? Got these for a buck! They are just a Wal-Mart brand but I thought they looked darling… perfect for my niece.

And lastly another of my favorites right now, some darling fabric. I like the pink elephants, a lot :)
Hope your day is going great. I have a feeling this kid—
is going to wake up any second now and I have promised him we’ll go roller skating, or something kinda like it. more like roller walking the way he does it! The little dork is wearing a Batman mask and my sunglasses by the way ha ha.

Our Newest Employee at bitOwhimsy

My big helper, West.
He is thrilled when it comes to crocheting… just look at that face!

He loves to help Mommy organize her supplies.

He is always there to surprise Mommy with a game of Peek-A-Boo while she is trying to cut fabric.

Well… maybe he should just stick to modeling :) He is super good at that!

Frame Face-Lift Make n Take

My darling niece recently celebrated her 5th birthday.  I didn't take a ton of photos for this tutorial but I hope you get the idea.  It's all pretty simple :)
Gather your supplies.
• An old frame ($1 or less at the thrift store)
• Spray paint or Acrylic paint works too I discovered
• Bead necklace or I used a Christmas tree decorating pearl stand
• Scrapbook Paper
• Scrapbook Letter Stickers
• Rulers
• Glue

1. Cut your paper to fit your in your frame.
2. To line my words up I used rulers. This is a fantastic technique to use so you can make sure everything is straight and how you want before you stick them down. When you figure out where you want the words press the tops of the letters that aren’t on the ruler to the paper and carefully remove the ruler.
3. For my frame I used this tutorial. I didn’t have any spray paint colors that went with my letters so I actually used acrylic paint and then sealed it with clear spray paint. I didn’t paint my beads either. I left them the pretty pearly color they came in since I thought that was perfectly girly.
It’s simple – paint, glue, done.

The final product!

And this is sweet little Taylee at 2 years old. Happy Birthday “Tail” XO!
