  1. So pretty! I really love all the MTLs.

    Also I found the exact fabric on here:
    just in case anyone wants that print exactly.

  2. Did you guys receive criticism from modcloth or something? Is that why you link to their products on the right now? Miss the old version, but I understand if you were pressured to change.

  3. love that you are adding accessories! Thank you!

  4. I have this fabric, and I’ve seen it in blue too. For anyone in the Portland, OR area, it’s at Fabric Depot in the Organic Cottons. Don’t forget your coupon!

  5. Can someone explain this website to me? I would enjoying joining and posting . Are we supposed to make the look that is posted or is that just shared by the blogger so we can observe what she is doing. I should mention I am mostly unfamiliar with blogs and blogging. Really enjoying seeing all of your posts.

  6. Wow, that’s awesome that you can get the exact same fabric!
