A little dress that could...

They were giving a box of Christmas dress at the place I go each week (which is half playgroup half mommy break) But everyone passed on them because of the christmasness. But I had valentine on mind. Red and cream makes a good valentine dress!

Mariann's new favourite yoga pose (and the only picture that didn't come out blurry...)

Mariann loved the stocking that came with it ("Shoe Socks!!") and when I put it on to make sure the 18mo would still with her she run around saying "Santa Claus Mayann!".

So I waited for her to be in bed, else it would have been a major crisis of "breaking" her dress. I've ripped the sleeves and use the scraps to make flower embellishment. Mariann found it very pretty!

I went hunting for heart, and this one was my favorite

Hope they stay blue, like his father...

I knew the food colorant was too low on the shelves...

We made [really sugary] heart shaped cookie which are almost all eaten by now. I have a truffe recipe waiting in the fridge but somehow I can't find anytime!

Mr. Merrick has ....6 teeth now! Still 2 to come which hopefully will be very soon. I could use some sleep! Maybe I have short memory but I don't remember being that exhausted with Mariann. Oh wait, with Mariann I was able to get some sleep in the morning...that might be why.

But I managed to make a tutorial for my dearest Danni at The Whimsical Cottage, you'll see that tomorrow! (My daughter just can't stop playing with it!). See you tomorrow!


  1. Hello!

    New follower here! I found your site via The Whimsical Cottage (I think!) yesterday and it caught my attention! I am expecting my first baby at 41 years old October 2nd! I am thrilled! I love your handmade goodies and am especially fond of the little Bandanna Dress! If I have a little girl, I can see her in MANY of these! I live in SC and it gets H-O-T and these are wonderful!

    Beautiful site!

  2. WOW - how creative to turn that plain Christmas dress into something so stunning for Valentines. I love the roses.

    Nice work!

  3. The dress is gorgeous - and your little model even more so! She looks very happy with your creation.


Thanks for commenting!
