I was pleasantly surprised and truly HONORED, to be featured this month, by SNEAK PEEKS.

To be recognized as a designer in the Boutique World, is very rewarding and encouraging. Thank you to the girls who created and maintain this exciting blog to feature boutique designers.

Sweet Southern Belle

Halloween was a Blast...

This was the first time that we (MiMi and Papaw) got to walk with the grands through the neighborhood for Trick or Treat. It was a blast. It's so true what they say... "...through the eyes of a child". Something so simple as dressing up as Princess Peach (which I created and whipped up for Gabrielle) and Mario (my son bought at costume store)...and going door to door was so much fun for them. It was so chilly that they had to wear extra clothes underneath, but they didn't mind at all. And I was so proud of their manners. They were so sweet and thanked each person so sweetly. I really enjoyed it, and of course, me and my Digital were busy snapping up those moments. Memories for a lifetime!

I want to invite friends and family to visit my new eBay ME page. In addition to a NEW BLOG, Sweet*Southern Belle, and new ME PAGE design (many thanks to Kim Timothy of BoutiquebyDesign), I also have a new boutique name and label this year, Sweet*Southern Belle.

After an extended leave from the boutique world, I decided it was time for a fresh approach and new boutique look.

My new "Sweet*Southern Belle" style captures the nostalgia of yesterday and brings it forward for today's little girl, often with a mix of modern or sassy twist. Perhaps even a bit of whimsy now and then. I just love to sew using lots of frills, ruffles, and bows. The more girly, the better!

It's my goal to create dainty, unique designs that will offer affordability, and quality. I hope their uniqueness will make your little princess feel as "sweet as a southern belle".

I will keep this blog to update family and frends on family happenings and sharing recipes. Stop by anytime and be sure to leave me a message or share your family news or recipes with me.

Fresh Poppies

Fresh Pink Poppies and little girls, just seem to spell 'dainty'! Don't you agree? This fun set is really a combination of some Euro detailing, frilly accents, and steeped in a little tradition! All, making your little princess really feel like she is dainty! This was a fun set to create. My friend, Holly sketched out this little design, and asked if I could create it. It turned out so cute, using almost all of her ideas! What a fun way to and sewing talents combined with Peyton's knack for modeling bringing it all to life (with mommy behind the lens!). Thanks girls!

Back to School with Dick and Jane

This set turned out so cute. The fabrics are from Michael Miller's "Fun with Dick and Jane" line. Peyton was the perfect model and I just love Holly's new High Key photography.

Thanks, girls!
