{i love... Fall}

Here are some fun fall pictures we took today of Pepper Mae and Cousin Jackson.  We just took them around the lake here and they turned out beautifully!  I just love this time of the year!  In the last picture,  I asked Pepper Mae to give Jackson a kiss.  It's only fitting to do a series because it's just so cute!  As you can see in fig.5, Jackson totally denied her kiss... but it wasn't for lack of trying on Pepper Mae's part!  It also melts my heart when they hold hands,  sometimes they will walk down the street like that!  I also love the ones of them together on the stone,  we will have to get some family pictures in that spot sometime in the next week or so!  

The headband Miss Pepper Mae is wearing is just braided jersey (an old t-shirt.. or in this case an old jersey dress of mine).  The tutorial can be found here.  Enjoy!


{the Play Kitchen}

So,  this is what you get when you take almost-too-dark-to-take decent pictures and you use the wrong lens, pictures.  We literally had minutes before dark and threw a dress {I made months ago} on her... but I wanted to get pictures of her play kitchen because I just keep forgetting to!  This is what I made for Miss Pepper Mae's first Birthday.  You can see the tutorial here.  If you remember,  I did a post on my inspiration... well mine's not far from it!  I used the mint green for the kitchen and Liberty fabric for the sink curtain.  It was such a fun project!   It allows you to put your own flair into it and have something special you made!  I want to add on a refrigerator, etc. later on when she gets older.  

Also,  you can see how to make the flower for the headband here {LOVE Pinterest!}.  I am literally typing this with a 14 month old needing my attention so if you have any questions about the kitchen just ask... I'm happy to share all my tips and tricks on how to do everything!
