Happy Holidays friends. I hope you are all safe and happy. We had an awesome Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve at my sister, Loral's, house. The food was delicious, the children well behaved, lots of laughs and the house was decorated so beautifully. She has been saving up vintagey christmas items from garage sales and thrift stores. I forgot to get pictures but they were very sweet. oooh...there was also plenty of delicious spiked eggnog! Thanks Lo!!!

I purchased a strobe lighting setup with gift money from my mom. Below are photos I took of the kids. The girls are wearing silk regency era gowns I made. We rag rolled their hair to get those gorgeous spirals. I still have a long way to go in learning the studio lighting. You can see the black fabric on the monitor but the background is black in prints.

Timeless, classic beauties...what a treasure they must be to you!
Merry Christmas.
I was thinking of you quite a bit last Sunday, when Maria went all over town in her Spring Bean Christmas dress... still lovely one year later!
Thank you.

Your babies are gorgeous! I can't get over how your older daughter's eyes match the dress color. Stunning! The dresses are so pretty too!

Missy, if I might impose on you? Would you be able to share where you bought your puppy? It's some kind of a terrier, a 'Toto' dog, right? Either a Norfolk or Norwich maybe? I've been wanting a dog like that, but there are no breeders in my area (south Texas).

Missy thank you so much for getting back to me! I am going to google cairn breeders in Texas. I don't know why I assumed you were in Texas. I forgot you were in Michigan. You know what, I think it's because your blog reminds me of Stefani's blog Blue Yonder ( Your writing styles are similar, and she's in Texas.

I appreciate your reply! :)
