Girly Time

It's true, most of my days are filled with things like this
but every once in a while I get to experience some time with bows, flowers and all things girly.
And since this spontaneous moment comes in the blink of an eye,
I don't have time to run out to the store, looking for supplies.
I need to use the trash I have from home.
This little Ralph Lauren dress came from $1.00 day at Goodwill.
Notice, it doesn't have a waist tie.
I'm looking through Eden's closet and find a packaging ribbon on one of her baby gifts.
I really like how it looks made into a dress sash.
I purchased these tights, new in package, at a garage sale for .25 cents.
I cut out the leg into straps, about 1 inch thick, hoping to make some headbands for Little Sis.
Using flowers and ribbons from a birthday card and a birthday gift bag,
I'm able to make Eden something with a bit of sentimental value.
Let's see what else I have around the house.
This $3.00 flower arrangement was from a garage sale last weekend.
I steal a yellow flower from the back of the vase.
Add a vintage button and the blossom of another flower.
This is a flower arrangement I was about to throw out because one of the flowers fell off.
Why don't I make another head piece out of one of the blooms?
I cut another strand off the leg of the tights.
I can't wait to see them on Little Sis.
What a cutie and we had so much fun.


  1. Miss Sunflower has stolen my heart!! Can i please save her on my desktop to make y day better every day? She is lovely!! and your post is awesome!!

    I wa thinking if you could do a post on how to enter ebay? I know that's easy but yet there must be some tips and tricks if you could share with us.

    I am from India and people over her in india are not very used to ebay shopping but still i want to keep my stuff as I shop big time, good or bad stuff and really be happy i someone else could use my stuff.


  2. Little Sis looks adorable in your super cute headbands! And you complain that your not crafty! The love of Little Sis (and finally having a girl) has gotten your creative juices running! You did a great job!

  6. Laura,
    I am beyond impressed! Not only can you and the counselor make a beautiful baby girl, but you are able to dress her up on a dime! So creative and cute!
