It's the first day of spring and I thought it would be a great day to get back to blogging (finally) after a long break. I've spent the past several weeks sewing new clothes, fixing old ones and working on some small vintage wardrobe changes. I can't wait to share some of my new found and newly made things here with you!

Rhys and Olivia are on spring break this week and although my weather app called for rain, we had a warm sunny day. I picked up some spring break essentials over the weekend including a pack of bubbles to keep them occupied. As it turns out, great entertainment for me as well.

This morning, we walked to the park and Rhys tried to bring home a stick the size of a small tree. I'm a mean mom and I made him leave it in the forest but I promised home made popsicles when we returned home. After lunch, I set their tee pee up in the back yard so I could get a few moments of quiet time while they played. 

We all went out to play after my chores were done and blew bubbles on the porch and I got some great funny Rhys faces.  This spring and summer, I hope to get a lot of wonderful photos of them playing to frame and hang in the living room.

This outfit is part of my new wardrobe collection. The pants are thrifted, modern pants but I thought they had a great late 50s, early 60s feel about them. I took the leg in a bit and added a split seam at the ankle. The sweater reminded me of this beautiful 1950s cardigan pattern from Subversive Femme

  1. Are the chairs on your porch new or vintage?

  2. They're new-ish! I got them at Lowes about 7 years ago. Menards has some similar this year in different colors. I wish I had bought another one of the kids chairs because I haven't seen any like those since!

  3. Cute outfit. Hope you and the kids have a fun week.

  4. Nice outfit! I love your neighborhood. It looks very simple and vintage. Awesome!

  5. I will look forward to more blogging from you, dear. I Have always loved your blog. Have a lovely weekend. :)

  6. That green colour is perfect for you
