I had this striped maternity shirt and my oldest told me he really liked me in that shirt. I bought the kids striped shirts for our photos, at the time it was really hard to find thin stripes, now they are everywhere.

At first glance you might think the stripes and mustaches are Parisian influence…perhaps…but it inspired me in another way……

PIRATES… fact…most things nautical….from mermaid to sailors….I have fallen hard….

I have been on a nautical kick…..actually its become more of an …Hmmmmm..obession? Infatuation?

I bought this vintage lovely

and this little girl sits watched me as I sew

and these nautical inspirations went into my shop

this one which I had debated on keeping…

Just today…these went into my shop…..and to celebrate the costume loving type such as my sons…..and since Halloween is just around the corner…..

I have these hats on sale

ekkkkkkkkssss I said I had an infatuation…

I have my costume for Halloween picked out, can you guess what I am going to be?

I also have three little nautical inspired project I hope to share at the end of the week

very cute bunting. I really like the mermaid fabric — very un-Ariel/Disney (nothing against Disney of course) which is nice.
