Babies + Christmas = Bliss!

What is better than two of the things you love most uniting?? I love babies and I adore making anything and everything for them! AND I love Christmas-- The sights, smells, decorations, baking, shopping, and hand picking/ hand making gifts! Combining the two is just almost too much! :)
So I have been in Heaven working on some very cute and super sweet little Christmas Gift Items for the babies in your life (or those coming just in time :)) Hope you like them!

Thank Heaven.....

for little girls :) In our family it is singular-that is "girl" since in the last 25 years my sister and I managed to have 7 boys before my sister finally had a girl. Needless to say with 4 older cousins and 3 older brothers she has everyone wrapped around her little finger. She is definitely a handful- so independent and hard headed yet super sweet and loving. Despite all these boys she is SUPER feminine and at the ripe age of 4 she already adores new dresses, shoes, hats, headbands etc.
Willow has provided us with a perfect excuse reason to buy and /or make girly things :) So for her recent Birthday I made her a little dress and matching headband. It has a crocheted bodice with a cotton skirt in a delicate purple floral print on an ivory background. I added a crocheted flower to the dress and a similar one on the headband. She was kind enough to pose for some pictures ham good-natured child that she is ;)
