Weekend Inspiration - Wall Hanging Made of Vintage Baseball Sports Cards

This past weekend I was out antique shopping, as always, and was inspired by the unique displays I found. I always drive by this small antique store, which is located close to my parents house, but have never gone in. I had some extra time so I decided to go in, I'm so happy I did.

I was inspired to get home and create some of my own unique pieces, especially a one of a kind wall piece with baseball cards. There were tons of vintage signs and sports memorabilia, which I'm usually not drawn to but the way they presented it, it was so cool! I bought some old baseball sports cards and am going to try to re-create their displays. (sorry I don't have pics) but I know what I want this wall hanging to look like in my head. It will be perfect for a little boys room or infant nursery. Stay tuned!

September Tunic - Adorable!

Okay this outfit is just plain adorbale, eeek! I would defanently wear this outfit myself, but how adorable is it on a little girl? This September tunic was created by Sarah, owner of LouBee clothing boutique. I literally can't get enough of this top.

This is adorable on little girls (and infants) of any age. Comfy and chi with buttons down the back, this top would go with so many outfits. For cooler weather during the Winter months add a long sleeve top underneath for extra warmth. Simple, chic and designer inspired.

Create Your Own Baby Couture

 StraightGrain. A blog about sewing: Kids Clothes Belgian Style: Elegance and Elephants
Baby clothes can get expensive, especially when you're buying designer labels. Although it can be fun to purchase those items it also feels a bit wasteful, to me at least. I still buy them but every once in awhile I get in the crafty mood and want to mock up my own.

I found a really helpful blog all about creating baby clothing, designer and couture inspired. There are free templates, helpful tips and tutorials throughout the blog. If you are a sewer, or know someone that is, this blog is worth checking out.

Uni-Sex Mini Blue Moccasins

I love babies and I love moccasins so when I hear these two words in the same sentence, it makes me very happy. My friend just had a baby and I have already purchased these for her. I love that these moccasins are uni-sex, perfect to get as a gift for the Mom that is keeping the gender a secret!

I'm not a big fan of really girly colors for baby girls. I mean a little pink goes a long way. I think it's cuter to use more neutral color such as blush, champagne or taupe. It's classier and these colored items will last you longer, since they aren't overly colorful. What is your take on baby colors? This goes for clothing, nursery and all things related to baby.

Best Baby Boots

Baby boots are the best thing to dress your little one in during cooler months. They are comfy, warm and hard for them to kick off (which in my book ranks number one in importance). If your little one isn't walking yet I wouldn't indulge in really expensive designer boots, unless you can afford it of course, rather, invest in a decent pair once they are old enough to walk and need good support.

I am obsessed with baby boots and baby moccasins and always buy a few pairs every year. If you ask me they a re the best shoes you can get for your child when they are really young. These are my favorites! How cute are they? I can't wait for cooler months just for the fact of dressing my little ones in cute comfy winter clothes, shoes and accessories.
Adorable baby boots - who can make these for me?
