winter brights and vintage toys
happy new year!
today's post is brought to you by the brightness and cheer we felt at the start of the year...and not so much the next day when we were hit with this flu bug going around that pretty much knocked lucy and i flat.
we're back at it today though, and just in time, because it looks like we're driving cross the canyon to help deliver a new baby cousin for lucy! more on that to come, of course.
for now, here is a little bootd for you. the second day of this charming new year, lucy wore these bright turquoise overalls with a big pink rose, totally 80s, totally awesome, and totally thrifted for like $1.
cozy outfit for all her favorites, playing with em:
trying some apples:
and playing with toys.
my sister in law amy did a good thing for christmas. she neatly packaged up some of the coolest toys that her kids used when they were littler to pass on to addie and i now that we are finally having our own babes.
the toys originally came from us or my mom, either gifts to the kids (nice wooden puzzles, books) or hand-me-downs that are now vintage.
like these little cabbage patch dolls: some came from my great grandma nelle, who collected dolls, and some came from my own childhood. tutti loves them!
this little cabbage patch baby in a crib was my own as a girl. babies were my favorite toys.
and now i've got the real deal!
for a nice long afternoon walk, i wore some brights of my own.
batwing sleeves don't really work with a moby wrap...oh well.
a long walk in the wrap in a good way to get the toot to finally take a nap. she is a very busy girl this new year.
friends, i hope one day to be able to sit and thoughtfully compose a post of my dreams and plans, thoughts and ideas. for now, it's clothes and photos of my baby.
i've got bags to pack and a laboring sister to attend to!
much love, peace and adventure to you all!
