Que color?

We are back from our recent trip to Honduras!

Here I am just talking about color choice with little Sindy.

A purple frog.

I like her creativity!

Trouble. I'm talking 'bout trouble

with a capital 'T' and that rhymes with 'P' and that stands for POSSUM!

We were awakened last night at 3am by the sound of squawking. At first listen we though we had a confused chicken on our hands, trying to lay an egg a little too early in the day.
My husband went to investigate and found a menacing possum crouched in the corner of the coop. Meanwhile, three of the girls were huddled together in another far corner of the yard, and Beatrice- she was perched in the nearest tree.

All are safe and sound. The possum went on his way and the girls resumed their beauty rest.

True vintage

True vintage, originally uploaded by sraines.

What a find! So many old prints in one place- I could hardly stand myself. I may pry a few away from myself to put in the shop, so be checking.

Gotta run. I have to go stare at this stack now.

March featured items

Introducing... featured items in the shop for the month of March!

This month's wares are especially for the baby chickies: onesie and onesie sets.

The urban hen onesie sets include one onesie and a coordinating burp cloth.
I wash all of the baby fabrics and materials in allergy-free detergent. (Safe and ready for fresh baby skin!)

Most customers purchase the onesie sets as a gift, which I think is a great idea.

The pink dotted elephant set is made from two recycled fabrics- a thrifted woman's shirt and a vintage pillowcase. This onesie is a 12 month size.

Calico baby owl set also has a vintage fabric applique from fabric that takes me back. (I'm pretty sure I had a pinafore dress made of out this material when I was a toddler.) This onesie is a 6-9 month size.

The retro elephant onesie is seen here in an 18 month size. This fabric I snagged at a local thrift shop. I was the on the fortunate end of someone's basement clean out.

Happy March!
