If only my boys would let me dress them...

I saw this on Inchmark along with other gorgeous photos from Mikkel.  Due to my serious British pride, I simply cannot resist a gentleman dressed like this.  Now to convince my boys to shimmy into a pair of trousers and a cap...

These adorable overalls are from the Purl Bee.  I was about to stop dressing my almost 2 year old like a baby, but I've changed my mind. One more summer of rompers for poor poor Sully.

as promised- the Summer Camp Playset!

You saw it here first- the summer camp/ Native American play-set inspired by the pics posted a few days ago.  The little guy can sleep in the teepee, paddle the boat or hang out with the pioneers.  I'm making this set in a few different patterns which will be available in my shop soon.

I am enjoying watching the boys getting lost in this little world- floating the canoe, putting the guy to sleep, having him dive into the water, building beds in the teepee from grass and leaves... The depth of concentration is enviable!

Girl Power and my Circus Obsession!

If you are a fellow Portland-er please go see this all woman circus - all of my favorite things under one roof- trapeze, fire dancing, hula hoops, music, silly clowns, and super strong and talented women inspiring us all! You can find more details and tickets for this weekend here.

I have daydreamed about joining the circus for years now... don't tempt me Artemis!

p.s. Portland, you rock!
