Farmer’s Market Dress

farmers market dress

Last week I shared Bee's Farmers Market Birthday Party HERE. It turned out super cute and it was so much fun! I wanted to have everything in one post but I was getting to picture happy haha, so I am sharing her birthday outfit today... The Farmer's Market Dress! This dress was so simple. I was going to make a structured red and white gingham dress but with the messy food and the water slide I figured I better keep it a little more casual. I found a shirt on Zulily that I liked for myself but all that they had was XXL... it was cheap so I bought it anyway and figured I could make it work for ...

Farmer’s Market Birthday Party

farmers market birthday party

Guess what happened... last month Bee turned TWO! I can't believe how fast time flies, cliche but true. Bee is the last baby and still in the stage where she doesn't actually have her own friends... we also share a birthday (so fun) so I think I will milk the joint party a little longer haha. A few months ago I had the idea of a "fruit and vegetable" theme but when I was brainstorming with my mom one day she threw out the "Farmer's Market Birthday Party" idea. I obviously loved it and ran with it! There were a few things I knew I wanted like a balloon arch, an adorable hand lettered sign ...

Cute Little Girl Clothing… found on Amazon!

cute little girls clothing

I didn't really mean for it to happen but when I had a girl two years ago, this blog kind of morphed into toddler clothing central haha! I LOVE to make clothes for Bee, the patterns and fabrics that are available these days are out of control! My "to-sew" list is a mile long and I love it! However, I don't have a magic clock where I can freeze time and sew for hours upon hours for my girl so a good portion of her wardrobe is purchased. Don't get me wrong, handmade clothing has a very special place in my heart but between the time it takes, the fact that toddlers are super messy and the rate in ...

DIY Bar Cart & How to Stock it

DIY Bar Cart

Guess what has been on my to do list forever... a Bar Cart! Of course we couldn't just buy one, my husband is the king of "we can make that for less" and I just like to be crafty :) I showed him the picture of the one I liked and drew up some dimensions and he worked his magic. Before you get too jealous please note that my husband is a perfectionist so projects usually take time haha. But, he started this right before Bee's Farmers Market Birthday Party (post coming soon!) so he actually had a deadline and we made it work. He used angle iron for the corners and connected the shelves together ...
