Little Vintage Style: Boys in Stripes

{Sorry for the quietness around these parts - busy, busy and trying to keep my priorities straight...sometimes blogging can consume me - I have no self-control!!}

These are the shirts the boys wore on Thanksgiving. I actually didn't get a picture of just the three of them then, so I made them all put the shirts on this morning and did a quick photo shoot before the bus came! {The boys were less than thrilled with this - but a little candy bribery goes a long way}. ;)

Linc wanted me to take a picture of just the shoes - haa! Can you tell he has some fashion bloggers/photographers in his family?

On all three boys - shirts: vintage, thrifted | jeans: thrifted | converse: thrifted

An Online Adoption Auction

My beautiful cousin, Rachel, and her husband, Doug, are adopting a sweet little one from Ethiopia. There are so many costs involved with adopting - and to help raise some funds, they are hosting an online adoption auction. I think this is a super idea as it's a win-win for everyone! They get some money to help bring their little one home, you get something fabulous your little heart desires. Right now, they are still in the collecting-items-to-sell-in-the-auction phase - and you can help with this!! See Rachel's announcement below:

Friends & Family -
We are so excited to announce our newest fundraiser!

Coming in DECEMBER -

an online adoption auction
to help bring our babe home!

We have already secured some awesome donations,
but we are asking for YOUR help to make this a success!

Do you sew? Crochet? Knit? Paint? Make jewelry?
Do you have a service you'd like to donate?
(photography, babysitting, baking, etc)
Do you own a business that sells exciting products?
Do you sell Pampered Chef? Lia Sophia? Mary Kay?

OR - do you know of someone who does?

If so, please leave a comment with your email address,
or email me at

Please feel free to pass along information about our auction
and my contact information to anyone you think might be interested!
We'd love to advertise your shop or Etsy store!

Stay tuned for more details and sneak peeks of some of our fantastic items.

So do you have something you could make & donate? Or something from your shop to give? Not to make this all about you - {but if it will motivate you to donate something, then hey, it can be about you} - this could help get your business out there - view it as a good way to advertise - hundreds will be seeing your item and your business!! Sounds good, right? So contact Rachel and let her know what you have to give! I can't wait for the auction...and am so excited for Rachel & Doug as they get one step closer to bringing their sweet little babe home.

Levi's Vintage Style: Hoodie & Tee

I found this cute vintage hoodie and tee shirt while out thrifting last week. I love them! The stripes and bird on the hoodie - the pointed hood!! And this tee shirt that says "cuddle me" is just perfect for Levi as he's been the most "cuddle-y" of my boys. I'm just bummed that I didn't find them sooner as Levi won't get to wear them too many times before they're too small.

Mike Made It: Owl Rocks

Aren't these little painted owl rocks so cute?! My sister had them pinned as an idea for Fab's birthday party and when Mike saw them he said, I can do that. And so he did. Such a fun, crafty project to do! Relatively easy too if you're good with a paint brush like my man is. {Best uncle ever, right Fabs?!}

Is it November?

We're getting blessed with some amazing November weather here. Yesterday was just so lovely, warmth and sunshine and fall leaves. We drove into the city and picked up big brother and headed out for some fun. These three little boys adore their big brother. And this morning while waiting for the bus with Lincoln, I was ready to put up a for sale sign and head out to SB with my lil' sis. Not because the weather was bad, but because it was so nice. I thought, hey I could handle no-freezing-while-waiting-for-the-bus {I'm so jeal Leeko}. We're enjoying it while we can - for sure this won't last much longer!!

We also shot some fun photos...I love this idea!! {You'll probably be seeing a lot more chalk-it-up pictures from me! Go try it - it's so fun & silly!}
