Smocked Pink Gingham

It’s not exactly clear to me if it’s a small shirt or a big dress but, nevertheless, Avery wanted to wear it.

Patch Pocket

I LOVE this little outfit. I don’t know exactly how old it is but old enough that there’s no Spanish on the label. I use that as a gauge when I’m shopping for vintage because I’m no expert. It’s a little boyish I guess but I paired it with the gingham trimmed peter pan colar to try compensate a little. But oh, how could I not? The patch pockets! The bear!

So much else has happened. The girls change so much everyday and I have recorded none of it. Like the other night when Avery woke up in the middle of the night, asked for a sandwich and then went back to bed. And, yes, I did make her a pbj in the middle of the night.

Finally, if you’ll indulge me, I’m going to live out my dream of finally comparing their six month baby pictures side by side. Can you tell who’s who? Same but different, you know?

We tried carrots yesterday. So much gagging. Such a fuss. They were much better received today.

Pink vintage

Chocolate milk because we had time to kill. I was so prepared today for an imaginary guitar lesson but it’s impossible to be late for one of those.

I found this pretty blue cake stand today. I almost didn’t buy it. In fact, in an effort to be good, I put back most of the things that I picked up before I checked out. But this one I had to bring home. I love the aqua color. I don’t have anything like it. AND, for three bucks, it looks like my eye was on its game today because you can pick one of these up online for about 50 bucks give or take. I’m going to keep this one but if you’re quick it looks like you can snag one for a little bit less than that (once you factor in shipping). Sweet. Happy shopping!

Vintage Lately

Lately I’ve been enjoying reading over at Moddern Kiddo I’ve especially been enjoying their Retro Rainbow series. I like to read Fresh Vintage too. It’s like enjoying the thrill of the hunt without any of the inconvenience or expense!

Found! And My Incomplete Guide To The Finger Lakes

My camera is home! Maybe by way of East Aurora, NY where we left it, St. Catharines, Ontario where it hung out for a while and then Batavia, NY where it was returned to me outside a Tim Hortons but she is home nonetheless.  And with all our vacation photos on it! I kinda wish the guy who found it had taken a photo of himself and not just of the grass where he found it. His good deed totally merits a reward but I have no idea who the good samaritan is.   Read the rest of this entry »

The Little Post That Could

Or in other words, I think I can… I think I can.  You take a week off from writing and then it doesn’t seem to come quite as easily anymore. Before we left we talked about data plans and wifi and whether or not we should totally disconnect and, in the end, I don’t think either of us touched a computer all week.  There was lots of Uno, digging in the sand, kite flying, roasting marshmallows and generally lolling about the place (check out the vintage flame orange fire place!). Then of course there was also the grueling drive and, oh, the lost camera. It’s found now but poor Ben was beside himself for a minute. I think I’ll wait until I have all the pictures to write a proper post about vacation. Read the rest of this entry »

Fun For Everypony

What kind of mischief do toys get into at your house?  They’re all over the place here.  Everywhere you turn there’s a pony.  Turn down the sheets?  Pony.  Put on a shoe?  Pony.  Turn on the lamp?  Pony.

37 weeks… and counting

I only had one big goal today.  Take one photo.  I managed to do it but just barely.  I snapped this picture of the girls eating strawberry ice cream with my phone this afternoon.  Warm afternoons often end in strawberry ice cream cones.  Avery needs to practice until she gets that you eat the cones from the top down.  We’re working on it.

My Curtain!

I didn’t adequately supervise the installation and so it’s not actually hanging where it was intended to go but I like it!  I’ll just have to be a little smarter about how I use the remaining three napkins to make the other curtain.  I guess this next one will have to be more authentically patchwork.  I just don’t have that much material left to work with but have a whole other window to cover.   Read the rest of this entry »
