What a Wonderful Surprise!!!

Today when Miss B. and I got home after early evening errands we opened the mailbox and found a *wonderful* surprise!! Packed inside was a box full of amazing goodies hand made by Ellen at Nouveau Stitch! You've got to check out Ellen's blog, especially if you enjoy sewing! She is a fabulously talented lady and you will be completely inspired!

Miss B. was very excited to open up the box, especially once she saw all of these amazing hairbows!!

Now, Miss B. has quite the head of curly locks and I have to say we have amassed quite the collection of hair accessories, but none as beautiful as these!! We can't decide which to wear first!





Each one is prettier than the next, but I have to say...



This one is my favorite!! I love the button and the printed ribbon. How neat is this?
Then, as if the hair goodies weren't fabulous enough, there was more terrificness in store for us! We unwrapped tissue paper to reveal:



This beautiful hand-made sundress! As if it wasn't lovely enough of Ellen to make this gorgeous dress for Miss B., in an amazing coincidence the fabric is fabric that I had seen at the Pennington Quilt Works!! I loved the "air mail" pattern that is shown on the skirt of the dress and had thought about making Miss B.'s baby quilt with it but couldn't find the coordinating patterns.
(this is the back)


Miss B. was very excited when she saw her new dress-- and just kept saying "Dress! Dress!" So here is a big shout-out of THANK YOU! From both of us to Ellen!! We had planned a special family day in the city for Saturday and Miss B. will be proudly wearing her beautiful new dress-- pictures will follow!!

Here's a close-up of the "air mail" fabric-- isn't it just too adorable? I love the bird sillhouettes!






This collar detail is amazing-- and the little green buttons!!







Check out the adorable bow at the back of the dress!






Thank you, again, Ellen-- you made our day (actually, you made our entire week!!!)
ps. the dress is the *perfect* size, how did you know? :)

Get some sleep, girl! Thanks for the lovely post ~ I'm so happy Miss B. was pleased! Maybe our paths will cross on the streets Saturday. Little girls' sizes are easy, they almost always follow their age, but she looked a little tall, so there you go. Can you imagine if the same sizeology worked for grown ups? Yikes!
