Tulips and Fluffy Dresses

April 26, 2012

Finally yesterday morning the stars aligned and I had an extra hour, a happy child, beautiful tulips and a perfectly overcast day.  And I finally got some cute pictures of her in the Easter dress I made a few weeks ago.

Her favorite color is blue, far and away, but I couldn’t resist sneaking a few pink ruffles in there too.

She was afraid the wind would blow her hat off.  She was so concerned about it she clutched her hat most of the morning.  Clutched it so hard the stitching is coming loose.  She just didn’t want to lose it.  Silly girl.

Looking at these tulip gardens makes me want to spend a small fortune on bulbs and have thousands of tulips in bloom at once.  You know, in that yard I don’t have.

There was a group of gardeners trimming flowers and one of them snipped a flower for her.  Actually, I kind of wanted to ask them if I could take home all the one’s they were clipping off, their buckets were full of such pretty colors of petals.

Her dress is handmade, from a thrifted sheet, pink ruffled petticoat was from a costume warehouse sale last year. I had to change the ribbon on the hat from cheapie plastic looking pink to classic stripes, and I think her shoes and ruffle socks are from Target, they were gifts.  I’m so glad I took these yesterday.  I haven’t been using my camera much lately, and looking at these pictures was a good reminder to me why it is important to pull it out everyday.  I have never regretted taking pictures.  But often wish I’d taken them when I didn’t think it was worth pulling out the big camera.  Lesson learned, well, learning.  Slowly, I’m learning to just bring my camera All. The. Time.

    Creamie is so cute in her Easter dress and girlie shoes! Fantastic job on the dress–I love repurposed sheets (and I confess, I’ve made my husband a shirt out of an IKEA sheet), especially in vintage prints!

    Great photo shoot 🙂

    Beautiful girl, beautiful dress, beautiful flowers. Enjoy these moments. The time goes so quickly. My daughter is about to graduate from high school and I just keep remembering the fun things we did when she was small. God bless you and yours!
