...after many hours of playing around with various photo shops and whatnot...i've finally figured out how to do what i've been itching to do!
you may think this is no great accomplishment, but for me, it is a victory!
you see, i normally sit here with a squirming kid on my lap who is fighting sleep, or a toddler who wants to "help" with pushing buttons...
today,when sleep overcame the babe in arms....this is what i came up with!

oh, and gramma just listed this hat....just in case you were wondering.

3 sprouts

the kids have been diligently watering our dixie cups...which i did eventually get seeds into last weekend...and this morning they were overly excited to discover THREE SPROUTS!!!

...all the more reason for me to be obsessed with green...lime green to be exact!
i don't know, i just like it, i really,really like it. maybe its because i've come across some seriously cool things lately in a few of my favorite etsy shops...check them out...and get yourself outside!
it's spring garden time!!!!

These marvelous green tea cups bring back very vivid memories of my grandmother...who shared her love of gardening with me. She had a violet set that was very similar....every single one of us grandchildren loved them and, the cool drinks that came with them, after a warm afternoon in grandma's can find them at...

Junquete's 5 & 10 Variety Store ~Purse N Boots, vintage, fabrics, jewellery and more!

stop by and visit their unique little shop and find yourself a treasure!!

who doesn't need an extra pocket when you're in the garden sampling fresh peas?

this apron is the perfect solution!

sewluvlie features a beautiful line of handsewn aprons...

i really can't decide which one i like best! can you?

get your little sprout in on the action too!

carry your baby with ease in one of loveyduds gorgeous moby wraps!

this green paisly wrap even includes a dvd on how to wear your baby.

and just for kicks...

let your little princess run barefoot in this sweet babydoll dress! doesn't it remind you of the feeling of cool grass between your toes?

check out sohokids and find the perfect summer frock for you little garden helper!
