Spool Dollies


A very special family gave this sweet Spool Dollie family to the girls for a "big sister" gift, when Sam was born. I was blown away to open the box and find these among all the thoughtful goodies last November. I feel like I need to thank her all over again.
So thank you, thank you, thanking thoughtful you!

She must have seen this post 6 months earlier and remembered them. Wow!!! I'll admit that I haven't let the girls play with them unattended yet and I doubt I will any time soon or at least until they mature out of the destructive phase they (ahem, I mean one of them) are in right now.

The dolls, and even the cat and dog, are made from vintage thread spools. I love that! They are expertly covered and painted by Erica Daley over on Etsy. These would make really fun Easter basket treats for your little one. You can find them in her store here.


Love the weiner dog, so cute! And Mama even has an apron on.

feed me and "let's play ball"

Sam has become seriously interested in eating food. Now that the drool is non-stop and everything goes in his mouth, he is practically begging for table food. The other day he started squaking at me in earnest. Hmmm...could it be the spoon dipped in ice cream I gave him at my Grandma's last week? hehe Grandma promptly reminded me about how annoyed I had gotten with her 3 years ago when she did the same thing to one of the girls. Yep, things are different the second time around. We can officially start cereal in 3 weeks, but I think I'll just make him wait 2.

Eying Emily's PB&J. I know how you feel buddy.


The many faces of Sam, in all of 5 minutes.


And some pics from Sam's first modeling gig...hehe...

Spring training is here! We had our first super warm day of spring.
60 degrees and our snow is almost gone!!!


You can find Kori's baseball tee and booties over at Cutie Pies Couture. Kori is a good friend of mine. We live in the same city and our girls are in the same pre-school. She is just the sweetest gal you could ever hope to meet.

And the winner is...


She said: "Her shop is adorable! I loved all her stuff but my fav's were probably the handstamped ring and the cup of love necklace. Also LOVED the giveaway necklace! If I were to win I'd give it to someone who means A LOT to me and I would put her little boy and little girl's names on it."

Britney, congratulations! E-mail me at tadacreations(at)gmail(dot)com to claim your necklace!

Thank you to everyone that entered!
I loved reading your posts and checking out your blogs too.

In the Garden

I just listed a semi-custom, one-of-a-kind, 3 piece set for IvyLane's "In the Garden" launch. Fits sizes 2T/3T/slim 4T. The blouse is reversible and it's easy fitting a-line style would look cute on a 2T as an almost dress length. The pants haven't been finished yet so they are customizable in the waist and length.

Thanks for taking a peek here!

Darling Ducky is ending soon...

...take a peek if you haven't yet.

I love this photo, but don't worry, if you are lucky enough to win this dollie, Allison has already forgotten about her. Out of sight, out of mind, is a good thing when you are 3. I'm making my girls coordinating dollies to go with their rooms, for their Easter baskets.


Find Darla the Dollie, and all he matching big girl clothes right here! I tell ya, this 9 piece collection was exhausting to make. I might not do a collection this big for a while. Emphasis on the "might" of course...you know me.
