I love pinwheels in the summer- I remember getting the foil ones when I was young. I made fabric pinwheels last year, and decided to try them with wool felt- they came out so pretty! They are listed in a rainbow of colors on Etsy.

My favorite? It's almost a toss-up between the red/pink and the lime green. But the green wins!

Heat Wave

The news reports that this day has been the hottest in eight years! I'm not sure what the recorded temp will be for our town, but it was in the high 90's with a heat index of 105 degrees...completely UNCOMFORTABLE! We stayed inside and relaxed all day, needless to say.

These basic clips are perfect for hot days, and they are great for any age. I tuck some into the back of my own hair sometimes when I wear it up- it holds up the loose ends. They are very cute for infants on up.

Early Bird

I was up with the birds this morning. 5:00 is a wee bit early for me. I really do love the sound of birds chirping back and forth, but not that early in the morning. So with a cup of coffee in hand and a very quiet house (no complaints there!) I decided to make something new. Here is what came about. I love, love, love it. Brown and turquoise always look so pretty together, and with a touch of cream it will be so pretty in the fall. I've put it on Etsy, and will customize it to be attached to the brown stretchy headband, or a regular brown headband, or even a french barrette.
