Cut-out Map as Art

Here are some lovely pieces from Etsy seller studiokmo. They are cut-out maps of various cities, and they translate into interesting art. Frame it and hang it on your wall. Pin It

Loving these printed chunky boots from Brazilian company Coven.
Wish I looked this sassy in a hoodie.

Lovely dress. And hair. Maybe I'll do that cut next. Would I have to wear heavy eye makeup to make it look good? I'm too low maintenance to keep that up.

Sharpie Baggies

Add these to my list of Things I'd Like to Make But May Never Get Around To. I'd start with the sewing kit bag. This is a little old, so you've probably already seen this, but it's so fun!

Summer Baby Dress

Well I seem to have lost my inspiration photo, and it's no longer online, so this is the best I can do. I saw this halter dress at Ann Taylor Loft, and recalled a similar looking pair of swim trunks in our give-away pile. So I cut off one leg and turned it into a light summer dress for Ava. Since we've just barely started having weather over 65 degrees, it took me over a month to get a nice outdoor shot of her in it.
Theirs (I wish you could see the whole dress!):
(This is the best I could find now)Mine:

Semi-formal Wear

Okay so it's no black tie attire (like my tuxedo onesie), but this hip necktie onesie would do for church or maybe even a wedding. The material for the tie is from a home decor fabric (by Anna Maria Horner), so it's a tad heavier and has a nice subtle sheen to it. I adore it.

Typestache Poster

I love this poster. From Old Tom Foolery.

Be sure to also check out their snarky greeting cards.
I don't know why these pictures are displaying wierd, they look fine in my preview and I can't seem to fix them.

Hello Headband

Here's another great way to use fabric scraps. Remember this pillowcase top I made? With the scraps I made this little headband for {A}. I looks darling with her hotpink skirt and black capris. And it has an adjustable strap so she will be able to wear it for a while. Someday she might even have hair.

And here's an idea for you... My clever sister-in-law asked me if that adjustable strap was a bra strap. It's not, but hey if you're ready to toss an old bra out, why not snip off the strap and use it for an adjustable headband? It would be a tighter elastic, but if you adjust it properly it should still be comfortable.
