Friday Finds

Now I must preface this with, I don't have a human baby. I don't want a human baby yet, thanks for asking, my fur baby is keeping me busy enough! But I was in Pounce looking for a Friday Find and I found this designer Meenieandmoe and I think it will just be a matter of time until they are just RUSHED off their feet! I will definately be heading here when some of my friends have the bubs!

Also lately on the DUST etsy forum there has been a lot of photography talk! And I just love this sellers photographs! They are gorgeous! And they definately stand out:) I love how the onesies are layered! Lovely!

Anyway! Enough gushing:) Here are the pics! Check out meenieandmoe!

Vanilla Pixie treats!

I have been looking after my surrogate puppy, Lizzy, I like to walk her... everyone likes to walk Lizzy. This is my beautiful niece coming on a Lizzy walk with my sister and I:) She has 4 big teeth. She also is allergic to corn... hence weird rash. Did you notice her lovely clip?? It's by my lovely friend Carley of VanillaPixie. Carley makes gorgeous hair items for both little girls and the older girls. My lovely niece is just turning one and has very little hair and she loves wearing her VanillaPixie clip, and despite being attached to a wiggly one year old, it hasn't fallen out!! Best clippies ever! Stock up ladies with babies!
