New art

I was wanted to change some art at home, so I commisioned my two favorite artists.

I couln't be happier with my new pieces that add so much beauty and a personal touch to our home!

It's Great to be a kid

Livvy was telling me we should just pick up and go to Disneyland, I told her "Oh honey it costs a lot of money to go to Disneyland"  She said "I know we can just turn in our old gold jewelery and get some money!"  I told her that was a great idea but I don't have any gold jewelery, so when we stopped by a garage sale a few days later she saw a gold chain and told me I could send that in.  I sure wish it was that easy!  

And apparently Livvy watches too much TV.

Learnin the machine

More dresses.  I love the masculine print with the girly lace!  I didn't have a pattern for Avrey's dress I tried to follow something she already had, so she might not wear it again, it was a little tight!  I put two patterns together to make Livvy's dress.  I wanted a European look.

Our Christmas Best

Well you can just call us the Vontrapp (Sound of Music) family this year.  I found these beautiful red curtains at an estate sale and knew just what I wanted to do with it!  There was tons of fabric, a friend of mine used it to make her girls dresses last year!  My talented neighbor came over and helped me make them on Sat, just in time to wear the Sunday before Christmas.
