New In the Shop!

Well, these two little pieces took a little bit of time and planning, but they came out really beautiful, and I'm happy that my vision worked!  The colors are so dreamy and springlike, with all its delicate colors. The pom pom is light as a feather, and made out of silk/mohair yarn. The lady at the yarn shop didn't think it would work, but I had a feeling it would, at it came out exactly the way I had hoped.
The little jacket and bloomers are both 0/3mo. Perfect for coming home from the hospital or babies first Easter.  I was inspired by an outfit that I had when Caitlin came home from the hospital many moons ago. That outfit was cotton jersey though and the little tail also had a squeaky toy sewn in, so when you patted the little babies bottom it would squeak. The nurses at the hospital loved it! I remember though, when I washed and dried it, the little pom pom got a bit messed up and the squeaky toy quit working. This is why I wanted to be able to come up with a detachable tale for laundering these bloomers. I plan on making a baby blue linen one next, and possibly a natural colored one as well. I got a new pom pom maker that I love, so I see myself making many of these little cuties!!

Winter is over here in our neck of the woods, and I'm starting to plan my Easter dinner and table decor. My favorite holiday to decorate for!! I love Christmas and all, but I think I love the colors of Easter so much, that I get really excited to play with flower arrangements and decor.  Speaking of flowers, we will be doing a consult with a florist this coming Saturday for the wedding and I'm exited. I hope our dreams are not too costly hahaha.  Caitlin's color scheme is really pretty, so it will be fun to see it translate into flowers. I will keep you posted.  She also found a beautiful accessory for her hair that matches beautiful with her gown!  I wish I could show you the pictures, but again, you will all have to wait and see :)


  1. This is the sweetest little outfit ever! Charlotte was just three weeks old her first Easter and wore a soft, white smocked dress... it was precious! I am excited for Easter, too! I love the spring colors and the abundance of fresh flowers that seem to be everywhere right now. It's not my favorite food holiday though, or maybe we just don't make the right meal for it. Please share your Easter menu - I would love some new ideas!!

  2. I'm so impressed with the smocking. It's beautifully done. Wish I knew a baby girl right now.

  3. I love this outfit. It's so incredibly sweet!
