it's textbook in my house, have two kids and they will be the opposite of each other. here baby o. proves this theory is true. he is already so into food while h. at 3 years + can't be bothered to eat (only cookies). i don't have any pictures of h. being a messy baby because he literally refused all solid food until i stopped nursing him (at almost 2!) happy weekend!
this is very hush hush. a refurbished airstream selling designer wares. two gals are behind this dandy little creation. it's so hush hush that i had to go to another site to find out exactly where they are located. Nelson, B.C. Canada. first, i love the name. second, i love the fact that it is mobile. thirdly, i love, love, that it is in an old airstream parked in "alley" made to look so inviting with their landscaping. brilliant! hitch couture is an LA-based airstream fashion boutique traveling to various locations and even available for parties! on a different note, thanks to michelle at kidshaus for posting my swimming audreys, get it while it's still hot (outside)!
the above image is from the spoonflower website via the black apple. this is so flippin' brilliant. are you ready for this???? its print your own fabric on demand of your own designs!!! now we all can be amy butler! (although i clicked on some of the creations coming out of there and its far from amy butler's style) yikes! but to each his own. i'm so excited to get designing! (i'm giving myself a year) but how cool!!!!
here is the latest swimming audrey, "audrey at a pool party". she is so summer fun with her matching skirt!!! she's in the shop along with the original "audrey at the swimming pool" and the below "audrey runs through the sprinkler" pink polka dots have never had it so good! here she is in her matching skirt. "audrey at the swimming pool #4" i will be posting more swimmers (these patterns) all this week.
what better eye candy than one's own kiddies! o. teething. h. as bono. almost ready for a shop update of swimming audreys. stayed up too late last night sewing and watching old sex and the city episodes as my weeds season 3 disc is m.i.a. in the mail somewhere. adding to my sleep deprivation was an hour "chit chat" session at 3 am (o. had a lot to say) and a 5 am wakeup call by h. "it's morning time, get up mommy, get up!" i see a nap in my future. have a great and restful weekend!
as much as i would love to do all my joann's shopping online, it is just not possible. everytime i go to that store it is a fiasco. but on sunday i was mentally prepared for poor service, long lines, and h. running all over the place and guess what - it was actually a pleasant experience. i also found the above fabric that reminds me of old farmhouse wallpaper. i love it so! (joann's, who new?) fabric is by tracy porter. i love this ms cover and as always, martha's ability to make everything look so damn beautiful. pink and lime green is so fresh and pleasing, isn't it? this is a gerber i have in my terrarium. i love the unique petals. well friends i'm off to best buy. h. has smoked his 4th (count it 4th) dvd player. no wonder we bought the extended warranty.
this is a doll i picked up at our "used a bit" shop. i have a little plan for her that involves our creek out back and an underwater camera. she almost looks real here. and i found this great little bus for h. that i wanted to put in a shadow box but its too wide. and cutting a bunch material for more swimming audreys. shop update soon!
