So I participated in ArtsyMama's vintage party swap, and was lucky enough to get Kari herself as my partner! Since I don't really have a birthday party coming up until October, I told her that any non-party vintage kid's stuff would be great, too. Well, she really loaded me up! Look at all the fantastic goodies she sent! And this isn't even all of it- I forgot to take a photo before I started putting everything away, so I just pulled back out my favorite things for the photo.
This vintage doll trunk is my absolute favorite item! Can you believe she was willing to part with it? I absolutely adore it- it has got to be one of my top ten favorite possessions right now!
And this book is wonderful- I love the cover, and the text and illustrations inside are great as well!
Also love this little paper doll! He has lots of clothes, all outfits from fairy tales. It's so difficult to find nice boy paper dolls, and this guy's wonderful!
Of course I forgot to take a photo of what I sent Kari, so hopefully she'll post photos on her blog once she receives her box.
Here is the only piece of art I've had time to do lately. It's a spread in Noah's book. Lately I've been feeling a bit nostalgic about all the "baby-ness", since he's so quickly turning into a little boy. We haven't decided whether we'll have another baby or not, so the thought that these may be my last baby moments is a little sad.
These pages are about two of my favorite baby parts- his tummy and the small of his back. He's a fairly skinny guy in his arms and legs, but he has got this big belly that pokes out and I find so cute, since I know he'll thin out soon. And I love the small of his back, you know that spot that is just above the diaper and just below the shirt, that shows when a baby is sleeping with his butt in the air? So cute, but I know also fleeting, since he'll soon be sleeping sprawled out like his brother. Anyway, I wanted to do pages about these things just so that I myself could remember them.
Hope you all have a good weekend!
