after all these years. happy first birthday jael bait. mommy loves you. ♥
to celebrate we invited anyone we knew who could fit into a size 4 tutu over for tea and dancing.
and pup cakes.
with the coordinating and inevitable barbie cake to go with. what can you do?
serving tea in grandma hazel’s china. the only person who broke anything, out of the whole available lottery of toddlers, was me. i am ashamed.
“pass the cleam pleaaase.”
getting suited up.
and they’re off!
mother’s yard saled, late night, painting project in all it’s glory.
when visualizing what color i wanted to paint it i thought of favorite houses from my childhood. as soon as i had it in my mind i exclaimed, “egg yolk!” and it was settled.
the finest ladies in town.
checking out the goods. aunt meggie has already outfitted one bedroom. that just leaves five more rooms to furnish, paint, wallpaper, floor, sew curtains for, and light fixture. (because even dollhouses need chandeliers.) it was kind of a shock when i realized a few weeks ago that this might be time to get that behemoth project down from the attic and do something about it. it’s been up there for five years waiting for someone special.
suffice to say, i haven’t even got my molding done yet and now i have do mini crown molding in a victorian mansion for a picky homeowner. just raising her right.
