Mariann's special day

On July 7th, we celebrated Mariann's third time around the sun.

In our new play room, on a piece of green silk, I've put some cake and strawberries I did a while ago, fairy wings, got the idea here:,. On the chair, a tutu (1" elastic with attached stripes of tule) and another one for Victoria. What's in the wooden box?

Birthday crown... I'd like to refer you to this inspiring post:
I chose the strawberries because Mariann loves them, a lot! She was born on the time they came out, because here they come out a lot latter then USA. So I have this sweet memory of being into labor, on the patio eating strawberries my in-law just picked for me from his field.

The face that makes all the work worth it:

In a little wooden box, I've put a little wooden set (the kind you get in dollar store an assemble yourself) with a pipe-cleaner fairy and a peg baby.

....I really wanted to get her a wooden doll house and furnish it with natural stuff.... But my mom bought one. I was so frustrated I cried. So I'll make her one for winter solstice instead.

I made her a memory games out of felt. Very practical when you have a baby brother that eats everything.

Mamie came to play with us.

And we had friends in the after-noon to share pops with!

... It's hard to get a crips picture of fairy costume try-out...

Une fouaise maman? (Do you want a strawberry, mom?)


  1. Happy birthday, Mariann! I love the crown, you did such a great job on it. I really wanted a nice, solid wood kitchen for the girls a couple of holidays ago and my inlaws bought them a crappy, tacky, fiberboard kitchen before I could. Kind of a big purchase to be making without consulting the parents first, I think. Fortunately it's falling apart now (good ol
    fiberboard!) and I hope to get them one like I originally wanted this solstice.

  2. Love the felt crown - just beautiful. And the second-last photo is probably my favourite ever. (And that's saying a lot.) I know the lighting is bad and it's out of focus, but the expression on Mariann's face overcomes all that.

  3. Love it! Happy sweet birthday to your little Lady.

  4. Beautiful!! Happy Birthday to Mariann!
