Sweet New Ride

No , not a car, a bike!  I have had my eye on this baby for months and finally got it. 
It is so perfect. 
I love the "retro" look of it.

Like my basket?  I tied it on myself :)

West is my riding buddy and he LOVES it.
The bike was found at Walmart and I think they had a couple other cute ones for sale.  I am so happy it is summer time :)

**SOLD**Headband is made in size 0-6 months. The green poppy has a button sewn on and has been attached to a brown skinny band.The first person to checkout gets it.

My friends are lucky!

Today I am going to a friends baby shower.  I went all out on this little guy.
Exhibit A:
 I have an obsession with matching :) Everything *must* flow.

The crochet goodies.  A Romeo hat, matching booties and a sweet little rabbit rattle... it doesn't really rattle but it was super cute ha!

I wish I could have shoes like these in the shop but the truth is they take SO much time, more than a hat if you can believe that.

This blanket is made from men's flannel shirts and backed with the softest stuff I could find.
I really love it and want to make one for my boys.  I saw the tutorial HERE and tweaked it a bit.  It is a great gift for little boys and somewhat fast/simple.
My mom did the entire trim for me, thanks Mom!

I used the scraps from the shirts to make these jammie pants.  The bottoms are made from the sleeve cuffs.
I can't wait to see her open it all!

My Vintage Kiddo

I had to share some pictures of my vintage little West.
He is wearing thrifted OshKosh B'Gosh overalls and the cutest superman shoes I've ever seen! I should have got a close up of them because they are simply fabulous :)

 Checkout those skinny legs of his.  I love it!

PS... these are still available on my facebook page for $5 each.

Three Reasons to checkout "Five Buck Friday" on Facebook...

Some serious de-stashing will be going on.  Aren't these cute!? 
Hope to see you later on tonight!

Off the subject but pretty.

Hi friends :) Hope your Thursday is going great.  I am feeling extra accomplished today.  I got a bunch of small projects finished up and now I am here.  I wanted to share some pics of ME!  A couple weeks ago I put on my old wedding dress and let a friend practice her photography on me.  It was raining and COLD but I am loving the results.  It is hard to find someone who catches my "good side" ha!
Check it out....

Fun hu!  I feel like a lil' model in some of them :)
Here is the photographers facebook  She is very spunky and fun! I think she belongs in a fashion magazine.
Oooo on a business side note you MUST stop by my fan page tomorrow for FIVE BUCK FRIDAY!  It is an absolute steal of a deal on the things I will have up for the taking.
See you there!

Boho....or No no??

My cutie patootie neice had a birthday Monday. 
 I ended up making her a "boho" styled hat with a few different clips she could use with it.
I really love the whole slouchy hat look on adults, children and older babies.
