Spring is nature's way of saying,
At last Peter Rabbit
made it back to the cozy burrow
where he lived with his family.
He was a very tired rabbit indeed!

|The children's faces have been blurred but you can see the tables and part of the room set up for the party.|
|Center table set up with the teas and extras for the parent volunteers. One teapot holds new fancy Valentine pencils.|

Jac (He was in my class last year and his mommy is a teacher at our school.)
Victoria-Rose, my daughter, who came to help out that day before she had to leave to teach piano and voice lessons.

|Fabric remnants and a vintage table runner from my stash of 'rescued' linens.|
|Chloe with the vintage table runner apron buttoned onto the skirt with antique green glass buttons. |
The skirt can also be worn without the aprons
|Applique side of the vintage linen apron with a 'chocolate bunny' and 'candy eggs. |
I hand stitched ecru French lace with green floss around the perimeter of the vintage
hand embroidered side of the apron and added little
green flower buttons in the corners.
I used the "Kate" scalloped apron pattern from Violette Fields Threads to make the apron with the shell colored background and the limes. I used some green gingham to make the waistband on this one.
More buttons from the stash added with pink and green floss to decorate a purchased white shirt to go with all three 'looks'.
|Chloe said that she loved all the aprons but really loved the vintage hand embroidered one the best. I love that she loves the embroidery! |
We had fun doing this photo shoot!
|I like the two channels of narrow elastic for the back bodice.|
|My husband wanted to know why I brought a step stool to the photo shoot. My answer: If you say to sit or stand on the stool you have a greater chance of them not running off!|
|Next time I think I will make the ties a little longer so that a pretty bow can be made. The shorts remind me of "Daisy Dukes"! Remember them?|
|She is just as sweet as she looks in these pictures!|
|Good for tree climbing. Good thing it is a shorts outfit!|
|She looks like a little dancer here!|
|I keep thinking of Shirley Temple and her little dance routines when I look at Harper in this outfit!|
|What a character! Rory is so much fun!|
|I love the ruffle on the bodice! The buttons on the back were from my large button stash. The upper right photo shows the buttons on Harper's shorts. They don't show much but I know that they are there!|
|This is why bloomers are necessary for dresses of any length when you aren't quite 2!|
|It is not easy to stay still when there is so much to see and do!|
