Friend Feature  Spring Skirts from Whimsy: A Lovely Mother’s Day Gift!

I have been wanting one of Kendra Haskell’s adorable skirts ever since I discovered her brand, Whimsy, at a craft fair a few years ago.  After a fierce winter in Boston, a Whimsy skirt is a refreshing way to welcome spring, and a lovely Mother’s Day gift! (Hoping my kids read this post!)

Kendra combines vibrant fabrics and fun trims to create limited edition skirts for girls (ages 2 -6) and women.  She also uses applique in many of her designs, like her Mother’s Day butterfly skirt, and adorable Winged Heart t-shirts.

Friend Feature  Have to Have: Hipster Dolls by Blue Raspberry Designs

Hello! This week I am so excited to bring to you Blue Raspberry Designs by Valentina Felce, of Orlando, FL.  She makes these sophisticated and edgy, one-of-a-kind dolls—and I have to tell you that at 40+, I am totally obsessed with a doll!  Each creation is an illustration (and perhaps a whole persona) that has come alive with sharpies, paint and a bit of muslin and stuffing!

Do you see who these cool dudes are?  Picasso, Van Gogh and Salvadore Dali!  Also don’t miss her Frida Kahlo doll, one of my favorite ladies.
