April Creations

Yeah, I know! It's about time! 

So...just realize it takes some pretty sturdy confidence to post these pictures., because.

So I made this while we watched some Jem and the Holograms. 
The goal was basically for a robe that was more like a nightgown (so that I didn't feel like a giant marshmallow mascot--robes kind of do that on me). Like, just a Modesty Gown. 
I'm aware that it's the color and material my grandma uses on everything. Yes I know that. 
But! I like it. It serves its purpose. 

In case you wonder, the jewelry I'm wearing is "true vintage." 
The set belonged to my great grandma Tensy (earrings, necklace, ring). 

Here's another thing I "created" this month. More like devised...out of necessity.
That is my 10 1/2 month old baby tied up. 
Because her secret identity is Houdini.
Secret Agent Scarlett Houdini!
She's just so tiny and clever, even a 5-point harness won't keep her in.
This little lady is famous for climbing out of supposedly secure baby traps 
(the kind you want your baby trapped in)
and climbing into supposedly secure baby danger zones.

But this scarf, a soft silk that does not hurt her delicate skin, I must add, 
keeps her from pulling her legs up under herself.
That was her main escape route. Once she had her feet up, she could get out (and climb on the table or belay down the side of her high chair and continue her secret, mischievous missions). And she did it so darn fast, too--I believe her record time for it was 2 seconds. Possibly less. 
But I got smart!

  1. I love the color of your robe! And it's cool that you have some vintage jewelry. You really made me laugh when you said you're aware it's the material and color Grandma always uses...!


Thanks! My blog is blah-g without your feedback!
