My beautiful nieces... this shoot inspired a whole new direction for my photography! I am loving sibling shots now!
Tell me a whole collage of these wouldn't be so fun with a bunch of "pink phrases" like...
"Pink of perfection"
"Tickle me pink!"
"Make mine pink..."
I'm thinking of ways to decorate individual frames with these phrases too. Maybe stamped onto the frame? Add your phrase ideas in the comment section, if you can think of any!

There is a small part of me that's always wanted to open a shop of some sort. I could see myself owning a baby boutique, or pastry shop, or custom painted furniture store. When I was a newlywed I submitted a few pieces of jewelry and art to nearby shops, hoping to make a few sales. My good friend and creative soul sister Zoe and I mused about opening a store. A few times. So when I do happen upon a fun little place, you might find me snapping pictures and oohing and aahing over something simple like the bathroom. Lol.
While I was in Utah a few weeks ago my mother-in-law took me out to eat at this darling little restaurant called Food For Thought. It was so shabby, so simple, so sweet. I loved how quaint it was. I love that someone took the time to make some of the shop's smallest details pretty, like this valance over the soda machine.
And this shelf of punch bowls, which suggests to me that the place could be transformed for more grand, magical occasions than just lunch.
The walls of the restaurant were a soft pink... and looked like damask. The tables were all different... I particularly loved this intimate set-up for a little two-seater beneath a phantom window (with curtains, of course!).
As you walk into the restaurant, there's this cute little old stove propped in the corner. Just because.
And then this darling display of all types of goodies. Like fabric. And treats with descriptions.
The food was as delightful as the shop itself! I had a to-die-for pear salad and delicious mediterranean inspired sandwich. The service was friendly. It was quiet. (And the bathroom, though I am without pictures, was pretty cute too).

Sasha is turning 3! And loves all the typical little girly things - dressing up, dancing, pretending. I made this tutu and jewelry box for her birthday. The tutu was easy - I followed Linsey's tutorial.
And the jewelry box was just my own creation. Gotta love mod podge!
As long as I was in the creative mood, I made a frame I'd been putting off for a while, and dressed up an old, cheap target lamp that's been in the girls' room for years.
