little girl in black and tiny happy

Visiting the thrift store with your daughter means that she comes home with more goodies than you do. :) Nat came home with this very unique (and Puritanical, as my husband called it) black dress along with a sleeveless black dress with red flowers; a pink, red, and yellow child poncho and a nick jr. magazine along with a very cool knitted shawl blanket which we 'share'. I skimmed off what I had and came home with a white long mexican dress for three dollars (though i need it hemmed) and a pair of rugged brown, strapped but closed toe sandal/shoes. I love thrifting!

Also, today I received a most lovely little package, a trade in fact that I did with the awesome Melissa of Tiny Happy. I was (and am still!) amazed and delighted by her craftmanship.

I feel so blessed. Her chamomile and feather embroidery is absolutely exquisite and it was wrapped with this little white handkerchief. I can't forget the sweet little purse/pouch that I fell in love with instantly! It is so me! I think I might have to change my wallet contents (which, I never use a wallet but always a small little purse, kisslock or other cute thing) and use this wonderful creation instead. So talented! Thank you again Melissa, I adore it all!!
