About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Note to Self...

Note to Self...
Cooking Clay too Long is Bad...

Letting 6 year old dress herself is good.:)

Don't you wish you could rock this look? Katie looked so cute!

Katie is such the little trendsetter!

Are we dabbling in clay now? You never cease to amaze me.

BTW: Ronnie has an appointment tomorrow with a modeling agency (this makes me real nervous) We will see how it goes.

Jen~ Lipstick and Laundry said...

hahaha... I should have warned you about the burning of the clay... It still looks cute... Slap some tea stain on that baby and you have a vintage cottage!

That cottage is so cute, but do slap some tea stain on it like Jen said.
Love the striped socks look. Looks like something Lilly would do. In fact she had on three different floral prints today and we went to the post office!!

Hi Lori
Your cottage looks great. It just has smoke around the chimney that's all! Very authentic. You did great with the clay.
Love Katie's style.

Lori, I have been there (cooking clay to long is bad). Atleast you could still see the color on your piece mine was just charred!

Olenka said...

Love the look she is sporting!

Susan said...

Love the shoes!

Jodi said...

Both are adorable, esp. the socks and shoes! :)

Jill said...

What precious little feet she has!

Nancy said...

I really do wish i could rock that look. I love how our little girls put together these ensembles just based on how they feel wearing it. Example: my oldest wore a skirt with a little buckle on the side. Her quote, "I love this skirt. I want to show off all of the buckles." She paired it with shoes with matching buckles.They just notice that stuff. Love your little one's cute socks. I bet they were soft on her feet. :)

Darlene said...

Hahaha I LOVE Katie's look!! Those socks and shoes ROCK!!!! It sounds like tea staining is the way to go on the little house...it is really cute!!
