LOVE LOVE LOVE my new necklace that came today from Frieda Sophie!  I saw a link to her Etsy shop on Dallas Shaw's blog (who is amazingly talented as well!) and just feel in love with all of her unique pieces- definitely going to order some other items asap.

A few weeks ago one of my nieces turned 8 and my sister threw a fabulous "Paris Runway Party" for her. She made everything herself- Barbie cake included. Thought some of you (moms especially) might like these pics for inspiration for future parties!
