I nearly forgot how to do it when I went to write this post... I haven' abandoned this little blog altogether.. being honest nothing has inspired me enough to put it on here, that and the fact that I have started my own little business...
Yep that's right-a teeny tiny little one woman business... Instead of vintage wares I am now peddling baby Moccasins.. Well one woman and one baby business- Lulu is my number 1 ( & only ) shoe model.. That kid is going to wonder one day why all of her baby pictures are of her feet!
Its early days but so far I am getting some great feedback and orders are starting to roll in.. It is the perfect business for me right now, and the fact that I am slightly obsessed with fashion for the little people helps - I know it doesn't really matter what they wear as they grow out of/ wreck things extremely quickly, but anyone who knows me will tell you I have always loved mini fashion and now that I have a daughter it has only gotten more out of control.. So for me it really is the perfect little business..
So what do I do you might wonder?
* hunt down and select the leather from various different places
* cut out 5 individual pattern pieces per shoe by hand
* then hand them off to a local seamstress who puts them together for me
* pick them back up, do all the fringing and elasticate the heels
* put them on my little business partner/ co-worker, convince her to sit still while
photograph the merchandise, post on facebook and instagram and hope like hell
that somebody likes them enough to pay money for them!

The cutest little co- worker.
So that's it really.. our little house is coming along nicely - in fact so nicely that my co-worker above had her room photographed just last week for a baby magazine. The boys are
insane good- making us laugh, making us cry.. keeping us busy..
Back again soon ..
