My Little Model

Finn was asked recently to “model” a few shirts from Room to Romp, a cute little Etsy shop that specializes in boys clothing. I had so much fun dressing him up and doing little photo shoots with him. (Although I can’t say he had as much fun as I did). But I did keep each session pretty short and I spaced them out over several weeks so he didn’t get too sick of my camera.

Anyway, I wanted to share as I think they came out really cute.

This was the first of the four mini-shoots we did. Sandy makes these little shirts which were inspired by a vintage layette pattern from the 1960′s and uses mens shirts for the fabric. She then will sew on and hand embroider, a name or saying. Finn’s of course, has his name and I loved the black and white stripe she chose for us.

Next we tried a series of tee shirts all with different hand embroidered images on a linen patch. I love the stair picture above. It’s one of my favorites.

A few weeks later after Finn and I both recovered from an awful cold… we took these pictures (with the tricycle tee and wagon).


And last but not least, we went to the park with Finn’s “Tot Rod” and modeled one last shirt. Isn’t it amazing how much he’s grown over a few short weeks? He had his first official hair cut this day too, so his fuzzy toupee is gone. ;)

Thanks for letting me share and show off my gorgeous little man. Be sure to check out Room to Romp‘s Etsy shop. Sandy is working on getting these cute shirts added to her shop very soon, so be on the look out.

Happy Friday everyone!

second hand goods

Home decor is something I have always loved to shop for. I frequently change my displays and collections, and cycle through tchotchkes like nobodies business. For the last several years (ten or more) I have passed on my gently used goods to my sisters, mother, or friends who find a new use for them in their own homes. It’s a habit that drives my husband crazy, because it usually means I buy more.


Well, this year I thought why not list the items that I have simply tired of or no longer have a place for. It’s a virtual yard sale, that might just find you a few good deals. A few of the items are one-offs from shop inventory, things I have been hoarding, or just decor I used in my own home that won’t fit in my Etsy shop, as it’s too “new” to be considered “vintage” and to “old” to be considered “new”… if you catch my drift.


I hope to add products to the Second Hand Shop weekly or so, so check back in from time to time. I am also adding new items (finally!) to the much neglected Etsy shop.


I also have a fun giveaway, that I’d like to share with you today.


Heather, at Post Road Vintage has offered to award one of my lucky readers with a handmade soap dispenser.

Fashioned from vintage Mason jars, these beauties have that awesome vintage appeal, while also looking fresh and clean with their coat of white paint and modern dispenser.

Just leave a comment on this post to enter to win, and be sure to check out Post Road Vintage and the new Second Hand Shop.

I will announce a winner on Sunday, October 17th.
