last day of March

1. from Molly.
2. I love this neck.
3. old notebook - the same as we used in school. This one is unused and it brings back sweet memories.
4. Our home Sunday morning eight o'clock.
5. I have a weakness for scones. These are wholegrain scones and they were good.

I was browsing through my many photos from the last weeks (that I didn't have time to look through or post!) and came across these of Frida Viola. She had a day at home, and we had been giving her a haircut. Afterwards she reminded me that normally when you go to the hairdresser you are offered a lollipop when it's all done. We don't normally keep candy in the house, but this time I couldn't resist her and was lucky to find a left-over tutti frutti lollipop at a secret place. I love these photos where she is in another world, totally absorbed in her own thoughts (and in the lollipop!).

♥ Molly 2 years ♥

Yesterday we celebrated Molly. 2 years is such an adorable age. she had no expectations and was happy & surprised with everything. Frida Viola chose a baby doll set with bib and baby food as her present and Molly was playing with it all afternoon feeding and nursing her dolls. Who else than her big sister would know what is fun to play with when you are 2 years old? It was a fine day.

The Indian & The Bunny

Those of you who follow us here know that we like to do something special & home created for the kids for shrovetide. This year Frida Viola wanted to dress up like an Indian. I was happy with her choice and imagined something very natural - with undyed feathers, fur, bow & arrow and only natural colours. But I couldn't be more wrong in my perception. She refused even to try on the first dress I made. So today we ended up with this very colourful & very happy little Indian together with her tiny bunny sister (and a tired mommy that sew all night...) Luckily Molly was more than happy with the bunny costume we made for Frida Viola a couple of years ago - here & here.

photo 2: the tiny minnetonkas are perfect - and are also going to serve as her spring shoes
photo 3: headband with beads
photo 4: the cutest bunny
photo 8: we have been dyeing feathers with Frida Viola's Ecoline painting. Very easy and with a pretty result.
