It's been a good 3 1/2 years since Jack took a nap every day. Which means I am very, very used to caring for him from sun up to sun down. Without him here I feel kind of lost. Sammi takes two long naps and the house is silent and I find myself wandering around wondering what I should be doing with myself.
Until I figure out exactly what it is I am supposed to be doing* (LOL) I am just kind of sitting here doing nothing at all.
Well, if cruising ebay counts as doing nothing at all, that is.
I got this wild idea that the bitty baby I bought for Sammi NEEDS a wardrobe of vintage clothes.
I bought a big lot of vintage doll clothes (cheap because the photos were total crap) and when they arrived they were even better than I had expected. I spent some time washing and stain treating them, and now there is a pile of them waiting to be mended.
Here are some of the cuter ones:
flannel pj's that say sleep tight;
three very sweet matching little pieces (that hat! is adorable on the doll);
totally terrific little jumper with matching vest (most of the pj's are this style);
a silky little dress with sweet pink embroidery;
a beautifully made (fully lined!) coat and matching hat;
a lovely pink dress;
and a sweet embroidered romper.
These little clothes are just so sweet and they seriously appeal to the vintage fabric junkie in me.
If you need me I will be cruising ebay looking for a little suitcase to keep them all in. LOL
*I told Dave we will probably have the cleanest toilets in the state. So far I have managed to completely avoid cleaning a damn thing. Clearly I AM moping.
