Pink to Pink Wednesdays!

A week has gone by already? Whew!! I've been so busy working on several different projects I guess I lost track of the time. One of the many projects is getting all the baby shower invitations in the mail. It's a co-ed shower so we're not doing the traditional baby pink and pastels all over. Instead it's pink and black and silver and movie theme related.....Featuring Brittany in her debut role as "Mommy to Be" and Jeremy (nominated for Best Supporting Daddy in an Action/Adventure film. More pictures of all the goodies I'm gathering later!! It's going to be great!!
Another project still, is soaking, washing/drying and pressing all the antique linens I've gathered for pillows that will be for sale at Monticello.

I also designed three new bear patterns this past week. Only two are pictured though. Now to get them from pattern to mohair!!

And then there's the bassinet bumper for sweet baby. The bassinet will be going in the kids bedroom (red, creamy white and dark brown) so we wanted to stay in that color scheme yet still be fit for a sweet princess. I think we nailed it. It took a while for me to get the dimensions right for the bumpers but I think it turned out pretty cute. The nice thing is that the bassinet can be wheeled from their bedroom to the main living area and still fit in with their decor.

So, this is how it turned out....keeping it simple, which Brittany likes, and not too fussy.
Well, that's what I've been up to. Now you know why I missed a few days! :o)

A little birdie reminded me...

......that it was Pink Wednesday. I'm feeling under the weather today so I've been resting off and on all day. Max, up there, has the right idea. I have to say though, I think the sofa is much more comfy than the top of the fax machine!

Huxford Molesworth & Tattered Tuck-In

These two little sweeties missed their listing date last week. Where does the time go? Is it just me or are the days moving along faster than ever?!! Never fear, I'm almost caught up with last week.....this morning!! Ha!!

Okay then. Now that these two chaps are listed on my website I'll run upstairs and tag a few things to go over to Monticello! I'm having lunch with a girlfriend from high school that I just reconnected with through Facebook. Imagine! Two girls who graduated from high school in Alaska living just down the way from each other in Oregon all these years later. Who knew?!!!

Make it a great week!! I'll pop back in on Wednesday....

Weekend treasure hunting with my sweetie!

Here are just a few of the treasures we found this weekend!! Oh yes, there's MORE! Some will be saved aside for the display window at Monticello April 1st but some will find it's way to my booth in Monticello tomorrow! My favorite find? The absolutely beautiful transferware pitcher. It's OMG gorgeous. The background color is the most serene pale blue green. I would design a room around this pitcher.....and I just might, come to think of it. I have a guestroom that needs a re-do. Heehee ;o)

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

P.S. I'll be listing bears tomorrow morning!!

The sweetest little Pink Wednesday.

Could a Pink Wednesday possibly be any sweeter than this?! I bought this itsy bitsy swimsuit last Saturday, at Janie and Jack, when Brittany and I went shopping. It's for sweet baby. Her first swimsuit. :o) Brittany was betting I couldn't hold out until Pink Wednesday to show it to you. It was hard Bee, but I did it!! ;o)

We showed it to Bill when we got home. He just smiled and said it was pretty cute alright. Later in the evening I asked him if he's ever seen anything as cute as that little pink swimsuit. He said, "Yes. The look on your faces when you and Brittany showed it to me." Awwwwww. He's a keeper for sure. Give the guy a gold star!!

Happy, happy Pink Wednesday

Tallulah Pickles & Little Crumb

My camera battery died before I could photograph these bears separately so I listed them on my website together. Not such a bad thing! Although, by the look on Tallulah's face, you'd think she was a bit miffed to share the spotlight. Oh well. ;o)

The week has been crazy and I still haven't been over to Monticello to fluff things up. Shame, shame. I seem to be having a dickens of a time managing two businesses lately. I do have a lot of things gathered together to take over though! I'm hoping to be there on Sunday. Cross your fingers for me, won't you? ;o)

Until then though, tomorrow is a much needed day off and a shopping trip with Brittany. At about seven months along, she's finally starting to actually need maternity wear. (I know, boo hoo right?) So, a shopping we will go!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

P.S. I also wanted to mention that Bill and I will be among the vendors at the Barn House flea market on July 18th. Mark your calendars!!! As Jermonne would say.....HEEHAW!!!!!

P.S.S. Tallulah Pickles and Little Crumb have been already been adopted! Bless you for your inquiries. :o)

Happy Pink Wednesday!

Goodness gracious aren't you sweet?! Thank you for peeking in! I've been extra busy this week trying to get lots of different projects completed as well as others underway. We've been blessed these past couple of days with sunny skies and temperatures in the high fifties. The sun, for me, is like a magic happy pill! I've been just buzzing around here!

I hope your day was sunny and magic! Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

P.S. The items pictured are from Bunnies by the Bay. Are you familiar with their baby line? It's oh my gosh, scrumptious!! Do pop over to their website if you have a minute. It's a bit of baby heaven!!
