Evening little darlings, 
A lot has been going on lately. Mainly good things, I finally got around to doing a DIY project for the blog {which I'll put up soon!} and I got a lot sewn this weekend. My favorite teddy bear, Vanilla, had a horrible hole in the foot and leg. But she is all patched now, I also gave her a new eye! Vanilla and I have been through a lot over the years, it makes me feel so guilty that I don't cuddle her like I used to . She used to catch all my tears and go on my adventures in the basket of my pink bike. Those were the days right? One time I put 'nilla in my little baby stroller and tried to run away. I took a loaf of bread with me and thought that this plan would somehow work, like some bread and my teddy was all I needed to survive. I am pretty sure I was strongly influenced by the movie Jumangi, you know when he packs a loaf of bread in his briefcase? Anyways, we only made to the end of our block and then came back! haha, silly me.

I'm really content with Wild Flower right now. It feels like just yesterday I started this little blog. Look how far it has come! Quite amazing. I've made so many friends too, just in the past few months. There are tons of girls I would love to hang out with in real life, one day maybe? Then we could take pictures for each other, how much fun! :) 

I must bid you adieu for now, Dexter is about to come on and the brownies just came out of the oven, yumm!

I just adored your little story about Vanilla! It reminds me so much of my childhood stuffie named bunny, who was in fact- a bunny! I still have him and embarrassingly enough sleep with him out of pure comfort and nostalgia. I just can't give that part of my childhood up. xx

I also have a childhood toy that has gone through many adventures with me. Rocky the Raccoon! You look lovely in this dress and blazer.

I'm enjoying your color combination very much! Your teddy bear story is very funny, my bear is in amazing condition somehow, a little thinner in fur in some areas where I used to brush him so much but thats about it!

Angela said...

Aaaw! Your runaway story with Vanilla is so cute! And I think every girl should keep her childhood teddy. Mine was a panda :)

I've mentioned you in one of my posts (with proper blogging etiquette, links and all), hope you approve ;)

Wow. Everything about this outfit is perfect! I love the bright yellow bag with the dark blzaer and I love the shoes. I am on the hunt for a bear of ankle boots and those are exactly the style I like. Where did you get them?

Jamie Rose said...

Aw Vanilla! I loved the story about running away to the end of the block. I feel like everyone has a story kind of like that. But each in their own unique way!

Also, I love the dark green color in this outfit. The jacket and tights are so great. Very pretty!

Aww that is sooo cute to hear you talking about your sweat bear, vanilla! I had a Lee Middleton doll named "Jenna" that I took absolutely everywhere with me.

I love your blog and I absolutely adore YOU! I'd love to have a tiny blogger meet up and take pictures as you said! That would be so cute and fun. ♥
