feeling springy with a peacock skirt
Many random images for your viewing pleasure today. First, the chow mein noodle bird nest that my daughter brought home from preschool. This glue-laden piece of construction paper delights me in every way. Not only do I enjoy the occasional chow mein noodle for some crunch in a salad, I LOVE googly eyes, cotton balls and baby birds. And all of them together? Perfect!
Speaking of baby birds, here's a little skirt I made for my own baby bird. I wanted to make something with a bit of bustle in the back, a little like a busy peacock. My daughter likes wearing it because the waistband, pretty much flat in the front, is really comfortable. I love the idea of incorporating these old-fashioned themes in children's clothes.
I also wanted to say that it's been so fun having so many comments lately! We love hearing from everyone and without fail as we pop onto your blogs, Melissa and I are so amazed by the crazy amount of talent and creativity you women possess. (And, also, what nice people you all are). xo
