A blog about how much I love my family, pretty old things, eating healthy food, and making fun things as often as we can!

What inspired you to start blogging?

I started blogging to keep a record of things I was making for my little girls (they were babies at the time and I only had two, and now I am about to have four). I was amazed at this big crafting community out there that I never knew existed and so badly wanted to be part of it all. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined how wonderful this experience would be and how many friends I would make. That is the best part of blogging, you have friends all over the place!

How do you keep up with the latest kids' fashions and being a mom?

Blogs help keep me well informed and I pretty much just go with what I love. I have always loved vintage and that is what our closets are predominantly comprised of.

What are three things parents should think about when styling their kids?

1. Unmatching is the new matching.
2. Do your kids love it?
3. Would you wear it?

Where do you most enjoy shopping online for your family, and why?


Etsy! You can vintage clothing, which is usually so much better made than the clothes at big shops these days, they are classic well-made pieces and are at very family friendly prices. Also, I like to support independent labels, like misha lulu, that are well-made and funky.
