So I've bought some new "favorites" lately that I haven't yet shown here. As I was looking at them to take photographs, I realized how color-coordinated they are! Unfortunately, I guess that means I'm following the trends, which I'd kind of prefer not to do, but oh well, when you love something, you love it!
First off, the clothes. I am so in love with this bird t-shirt from Old Navy that I almost don't want to ever wear it so that it doesn't wear out! The colors and image are just so perfect! Of course, I really could make one of my own using the freezer paper technique everyone's talking about, but for $6 (on sale), how could I resist? Also from Old Navy is the striped skirt that I drooled over when those commercials were playing ad nauseum. Again, it was also on sale- only $10! And the sweet yellow-green skirt w/blue trim comes from Ross, one of my very favorite stores.
Then, the vintage thrift finds. There's a darling little doll chair that I have no idea what to do with, but I just had to have. By the way, I'm really digging vintage doll furniture lately- dressers, appliances, etc. A lot of it can be pretty pricey though, so I haven't broken down and purchased anything (other than this chair which was only $8). I just can't justify it with a little boy, but I am really going to be in trouble if we ever have a girl!
Also at the same place, I found this great fabric- blue with plum-colored outlines around the animals. There's not much of it though, so I'll have to really think about how to use it. And I couldn't resist this sweet baby nightgown. Most likely I'll end up cutting it up for the fabric, which is adorable, but maybe I'll dress a teddy bear with it in the meantime...
And, for those that are interested, here is a progress photo of some of the frames I'm plugging away at. I'm making more than I need for the article for Somerset, so that I have a few to choose from. Those that don't get sent away I'll list for sale!
