shower invites

I have been working hard on these cute apron shower invites for my niece.  I hope she loves them!

And, I made these little candy bags for party favors...

I was having a little fun with the new photo editing program PicMonkey.  It is very user friendly and I love it!

I was able to attend a lunch at Oliver's new preschool recently.  See the cute little girl sitting directly across from him with the EXACT same color hair?  Her name is Madison and Oliver is smitten!  I have heard him tell her twice that she is his girlfriend.  She hasn't responded yet.  But, he's persistent.

As I was leaving his school to head back to work the teachers were laying their nap mats out.  Olivers has a vintage crib sheet, his favorite Cars blanket, a handmade pillow that was given to him by his aunt and of course his baby doll. 

These pictures were taken on pajama day at school...
why doesn't he smile like this when i want to take vintage pics??

this picture melts my heart...

he even asked to do a serious face...
so funny!

well, mickey is pretty much OUT and buzz & woody are IN as you can see from his jammies.  so, this weekend we are going to Toy Story on Ice!  can't wait!

Buy 2 (fisher price dolls)

Get 1 FREE!  (this adorable print of happy children)

I really lucked out at a garage sale this weekend.  First I spotted the boy and girl fisher price dolls.  I was holding onto them when I asked the man running the garage sale how much he wanted for the canvas picture of colorful children.  He told me if I bought the 2 dolls I could have the canvas FREE!  It was in pretty rough shape.  Very dirty and holes along the edges.  Once I got it home, I carefully removed the canvas from the frame and washed it on delicate.  Then I carefully cut all around the edges to get rid of the holes.  Now I just need to decide if it's going in my room or Oliver's.

Chocolate Soup

Have I ever professed my LOVE for Chocolate Soup??  Chocolate Soup is my all time favorite vintage clothing brand!  I have 2 new Chocolate Soup dresses coming soon to OliversForest.  If I had a little girl I would NEVER let these go!

look at the little handles on these teacups...

A..E..I..O..U!!!  With little appliques that go with each letter.  Have you ever seen anything cuter!?!

I recently purchased these Chocolate Soup overalls from 3RingCircus.  They will not fit Oliver for a while but I couldn't pass them up!

And, who could forget these Chocolate Soup overalls Oliver wore about a year ago?  They were traded to a fellow VKC members son in exchange for a cash register!  They were hard to let go of but I'm glad they went to a good home!
