Dressed Up

They might look like ladybugs and magicians but they're actually angels. Happy Halloween!

Where are all the hot people?

I didn't realise just how irresistible a 4 yr old in front of a lemonade stand would be! My daughter, since it's still in the high 80's in mid October here in South Florida, wanted to have one last week, and it was an hour of pure fun and interesting people observation.

Most would stop and ask her, "How much for a glass, honey?", and she would say in her cute cartoony voice, "One coin please!" And she was so happy that someone wanted a glass, she would proceeded to carefully pick two cubes of ice from the ice bucket, and add lemonade to the glass, and hand it to her customer.

As soon as her last customer left, she would immediately assume sulk pose and say a million times, "Where are all the hot people mama?" and "Where are all the thirsty people, mama?" I guess patience is really a learned virtue, after all.

One person gave her a dollar and said they didn't want any lemonade. This made her so sad! She said "I don't want a dollar, I want to give him lemonade!"

Oh to be four again.

Accordion or Conventional?

We're having a hard time deciding what kind of soft book would be the best design. The conventional book design where the child is able to flip the pages, or the accordian fold-out design. I remember my own babies loving to flip pages, but the accordian design allows for easy fold out at the cribside or changing table. I'd love to hear what you think.

I saw these Matroyshkas made by one of my all time favourite artists some time ago and instantly fell in love. Of course there had to be a wee gallery set next! I finally ordered some blank ones, and painted them a couple of nights ago. Gosh it was tough! Now I have even more respect (if that's possible) for the amazing Irina. And I'm addicted to painting these things...

Our Wee Family

I bought a blank set of dolls about a year ago from one of my favourite shops on etsy. I finally painted them last night. I tried following Michelle's lovely style, not perfect, but I think I'm happy with them. The kiddies came downstairs this morning and were so happy to see them!
I highly recommend the kit or getting a set made for your family!

The 'Making' Bug

My son was bitten by it this weekend. He made woven grass placemats for our meals, and wanted to embroider something too. I chose a piece of a vintage pillowcase for him, out of which he decided to make an airplane! So clever!
