The photo shoot at the local pumpkin patch went way better than the carnival. She was happy to be able to run around from scene to scene and even posed now and then. Now I just have to decide between natural or vintage.
I just got a new lens, the Canon EF 50mm and I am in love with it. The pictures are clear and the lens is very compact. We took a trip to the fair recently and here are some of the pictures that I took that day. I can't wait until she gets old enough that I can bribe her for cooperation in photos.
I wanted something a little country for Dylan to wear to the fair. I saw this quilt pattern bandana material at hobby lobby and new that it was it. This is a simple pillowcase top and I made her a belt using different types of ribbon.
Our Walmart final got its fabric back yeah! They had this adorable rainbow fabric that I wanted the moment I saw it. This skirt is simple to make, it is a simple Peek-a-boo skirt without any room to tie it up. The shirt applique or should I say reverse applique came from Planet Applique of course.
I threw a wedding shower at my house this last weekend for a good friend of mine. I wanted it to feel cozy and intimate so I set up a large table and 12 seats on my patio and set the theme to french cottage of course.
I bought these water glasses at the local dollar store for a buck each. While there I saw these great pizza pans and could not resist grabbing them to use a charges, also just one dollar each.
I lined the table with mason jars filled with candles and flowers.
The gift table.
My mom and I found these lanterns at Warrington trade days a couple of weeks ago. They were such a great deal because the glass was broken out. Pottery Barns sells them for $150 each and we picked them up for just $27.
Thanks to my friend Crystal who took these photos and helped with the shower.
