Today is a special day for our little family... our daughter's eleventh birthday. So, in honour of her day I have come out of the woodwork and dusted off the cobwebs here at Crow's Feet Chic. I've also done some dusting at home and celebrated with a Birthday cubby!
Our birthday girl. (Taken last summer when we had shirt sleeve weather.)
Thank you Mo for your always gorgeous art (birthday hat, photo frame, candles, etc)! xo
Crocheted party hats for the guests of course and a 30's fabric bunting snipped with pinking shears. The reproduction sampler has my great grannie's name on it. Wilhelmina insisted on wearing her birthday suit and luckily is holding Macy's headband bouquet made by my dear friend, the lovely and talented
We all need a calorie free birthday cake. I crocheted this one inspired by this cake here! The bag and flower are one of many, many things that Macy and I received from my friend Mo this spring that is made from a vintage 30's quilt. I made the Little Quilt on the parlour cabinet about 20+ years ago.
I was very excited to receive my new car and trailer in the mail last week. My first new addition to my collection in ages!
The Pièce de résistance... sent to me by my dear friend Vickie of Ranger911. My doll head. I just love her. The other members of the household... well, not so much. They do not like her one little bit and I just don't get it. I LOVE her! I make her hats and perch her here and there and they promptly move her down to my desk. So I got to bring her upstairs for the party on Sunday and then she was asked politely to move back down. Apparently she'll be welcome during the Halloween decor phase. Well, I think she's fabulous and I love her.
Speaking of peeps I love...

Thank you everyone for continuing to check back. I hadn't planned on taking a blog break, but had some 'surprise' health changes this spring. Everything is fine and we are adjusting here at the crow's nest. I am unable to drive until December but more walking is good for all of us, right? :) It certainly limits the amount of shopping one can do. (But that new 1955 Crown Victoria and Airstream did arrive by mail.) :D
I apologize if I am behind on email. I will get caught up and get back to visit your blogs. I have been outdoors more -- even though our weather can not really pass for spring. It's more like a really good winter. Thanks again for your emails... I value all of your friendship and the inspiration you give me. Have a wonderful summer... I just hope the weather arrives to go with it!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
