We came home one day with the trashcan lying on its side. 

Momma: Oh dear, the trashcan fell over
Izzy: The trashcan fell over? Does it have blood?
Momma: No, it's not real
Izzy: It's faux?

Flower of the Month

From the garden =)


The peony bush was bursting with blooms -- this is the first year after being planted.


Mmmmm...the smell of flowers when you walked into the kitchen!


Although I may have murdered the poor bush since I had to move it to a different spot. Fingers crossed that it survives!

Summer Sewing

The weather has been warming up nicely. Warm weather = light, flowy dresses.

Izzy is a bit of a hoochy-koochy with her dresses -- they have to be short. Like, short-up-till-there short.

Store bought dresses are "too loooooooong, mom!" Her go-pieces have been 3 tunics/dresses that I made when she was a toddler, so that makes me happy. But it does get slightly annoying when they are all used up and are in the laundry basket and it takes her an eternity to get dressed in the mornings then.


It's been a long time since I sewed anything. Stayed up till 3am last weekend to do so, and I have to say that it felt great! 

And when Izzy woke up the next morning asking if the blue flower dress is ready to wear, it makes it even sweeter.

(lesson learned -- always, ALWAYS consult with her on fabric prior. Else it'll be a battle to get her to put it on and KEEP it on)
 Oliver + S \Swingset tunic in size 4T, with the length extended about 1 1/2 inches longer than the pattern so it's slightly more decent when she wears it.


The button at the back is my favorite detail - found it in my button stash
Appropriately, Izzy wore it to the park to swing in her Swingset tunic. 

More dresses to come.
