nautical vintage

^ oliver fell asleep last night holding onto his woody hat!  he is obsessed with toy story and i have given in to the fact that this years birthday party is going to be toy story.  of course i will try to sneak in some vintage/handmade, but it's not going to be easy.  last year i was lucky because i found lots of vintage mickey to incorporate.  but, toy story hasn't been around long enough so i guess i'm stuck.  :(

i have such a soft spot for vintage nautical.  this is one of my favorite shirts oliver has ever worn and it was perfect for memorial day!

Happy Mother's Day

Oliver's preschool had a Mother's Day tea for the mothers and grandmothers on Friday.  Oliver gave me the most beautiful card!

He also gave me these beautiful flowers and this card.  He said the drawing was a heart because he loves me!  Such a sweetie!  Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful ladies!

the listing that never was...

I came across these brown corduroy overalls recently and they are way too small for Oliver so I had every intention on listing them in the shop.  I took photos, uploaded to Etsy and even wrote out the description but I could not bring myself to hit that little button to actually list them.  These are so precious that I just can't part with them!  Hopefully someday when I have an office of my own I can display them.  This snoopy applique kills me!

This little cutie along with the wooden puzzle will be coming to OliversForest soon!  I also went thrifting while in San Antonio for a dental convention this weekend so I will have some new clothes to add soon too!

And, this sweet little butterfly was made by my precious Oliver.  It is my favorite art project he's brought home from school so far!  Apparently it is quite fitting... Oliver is turning into a butterfly, a social butterfly that is.  He received his first time out since stating preschool for talking and not staying in line.  Silly goose!
