Guess how many crabs?????

This post has nothing to do with blue chickadee however it has everything to do with CRABS!!!!!!  Can you guess how many we caught?????
You would be right if you guessed 60+!!!!  What a way to end summer around here...a day on the boat, a few beers and crab crackin'!!  Big R spent the better part of the afternoon picking the remaining 35 to get get 2 pounds of crab meat for crab cakes last night!!!  

What a wonderful day spent on the water!  What's the most number of crabs you have caught??

monkey and this little piggy.....

monkey man numero uno....
 These little piggies found a home on baby g's wall.  

Moving on, here is the most adorable toy box that my friend Margeaux made for baby G's room.  Cute huh?  The fabric matches the bottom trim on the changing table (she made these burlap panels as well).  Check out her blog-she is specializing in custom crib bedding.

Tags and Bloomers

Here are a few things that I have recently been working on for some friends.  I so wish I had a little fanny to cover with one of these hand painted bloomers.  I have to admit, I have thought about putting them on baby g, just to see how cute they would be....i think big r would have a few words for me if ever found out. Don't tell!!!!
I just got these in the mail from an adorable shop on Etsy called Bitsy Creations.  These are iron on tags for my blue chickadee line.  She was able to take my logo and transfer it onto these adorable tags!  Don't you think they turned out well?!  I had to get iron on because  a)  I don't have the time to sew on each one and b) I am not very good with the sewing machine!  So, these were the answer....
Couldn't have done any of this without this little cutie pie!
