sweet batiste

I made another spring ruffle top for Emily. It's made from cotton batiste and the trim is Making Memories scrap booking ribbon.
I added the little bow just to see if I like it. I felt it might need something. It's only safety pinned so I can take it off.

Because batiste is so light an flowy, I should have gathered the front and back instead of pleated. It looks like it's tight but it's just the way she's sitting.


Jenny had a giveaway on her blog and I won! To be in the drawing you had to leave a name suggestion for two pieces of her jewelry from her etsy store, Pearlswirl. One was a really really pretty bracelet and I suggested it be named "Coal Miners Daughter". Well, she did a random number thingy and I won! I got to pick any earrings from her store and I chose these below.
Another video of Ava from the other night. This time she is playing "peek-boo".

I love the shirt, and I like the bow on it! I really want one. Ava is way to stinkin cute in that clip. It's a hard age, but filled with so much cuteness!

I love the shirts, and the earrings are pretty! The wall art and card are very creative! Also, the movies of Ava are so funny and the pic of Emily asleep in the chair holding ANOTHER chair is just priceless!
