Currently obsessed with...

Owls! Oh, they're so pretty...I'm in love :) Here are a few awesome owl pieces currently being sold on Etsy. Click on each picture to be taken to the seller's Etsy shop.

Snow Day

It's definitely a snow day here in Charlotte, North Carolina. Most places seem to be closed. This is probably the most snow we'll see this year. Not much, but a lot for Charlotte. I hope everything's good and safe for me to get to Santiago's birthday.

Here are some recent pics of Keri in the snow in Atlanta. She's wearing the custom vegan winter coat that her boyfriend Jeff had me make for her as a Christmas present... For more pictures of the coat, visit my Flickr account:

You must have been a beautiful baby...

Santiago turns 1 year old on Saturday! In honor of my favorite little man in the whole world, I thought I'd share some beautiful baby moments....

All photos found searching Flickr. Happy Birthday Santiago! I love you more than you'll ever know.

1st Etsy Listing!

I finally posted my first listing onto Etsy...a light gray coat, that's just perfect for the spring, with a pretty pink flower pin. I'm pretty excited about it! Especially the fact that I finally got my policies and bio up...I was stressing about those for a while. Here are a few pics...and you can click here if you'd like to see it on Etsy.

We had a few pictures taken a while ago with Chris's 1951 Chevy...
That satin black finish has now become an amazing avocado green with cream details. Looking at it just makes you feel like you should be dressed up in your Sunday best...waist-cinching dress, dress coat, white gloves and all of those lovely little details.

Quite lovely, yes? :) I swear...sometimes I think that we were both born in the wrong era. Can't wait until it's all done! I better get to sewing all of those lovely dresses to match!

Foto, Foto goodness! So, I couldn't help myself...Santiago is down for a nap, and I just had to check out this camera bag program. This is what I was able to do in less than 10 minutes. I had to stop myself, before I went through every picture I have saved! The first one is the same picture that I posted of Santiago yesterday, just to give you and idea of what you can do. I so love the feel of vintage pictures...

Hours of Fun

Today, I purchased the Camera Blog desktop, which was kindly brought to my attention by my good friend Jenn, of MonkeyandSquirrel. I have to say, it seems like a pretty awesome program that's going to be providing me with hours of fun...oh, and productivity, of course :)! I'll be playing around with this, and posting a little bit of what I come up with.

If you haven't visited Jenn's etsy shop, you're missing out. Filled with "whimsical goodies" from hand-painted cast-iron decor to uber-girlie headbands, this shop is one to love. Check it out for yourself.
