Down Home America kid at the fair

Animals, vendors, free samples, greasy food...
lights, people, sounds,
colors, rides, cotton candy, pickles on a stick...

these are all some of my favorite things all put together in one place.

We spent time at the county fair this weekend, and we had such a great time as a family.

Just the three of us, and even though we were absolutely exhausted from the walking after it,
we had such a refreshing time being together just as a family.
It was Lux's first time at the fair, understanding what things were and being excited about what she was seeing. 
She went crazy with the animals at the petting zoo, loved the food and drinks, touched and saw things she'd never experienced before...i'm sure her brain was processing a zillion things at the same time. 
She's super curious about this world and all that's in it.

Down home american kid...
that's what she is.
and loving it.

which is why the raglan she's wearing is absolutely perfect for this spunky girl who likes to have fun.

 Dancing to the music of the carousel.

Printed on American Apparel, this shirt is the softest that they come. super comfortable whether its hot or cool out. (which we totally experienced both during our time at the fair!)

I couldn't think of a better avenue to wear this than the fair grounds as this kid discovered the joys of rides, cotton candy, unicorns, dancing bears, and games that win you prizes;)
Ahoy Amigo is a growing shop with super sweet designs, printed on the best material.
They don't only have awesome tops for tots, they've got great legging as well.

I pretty much squealed out loud when i saw it, because, well, its just a super sweet design.

Do me a favor and check out this shop.
grab a tee, a raglan, a pair of leggings.

and then let me know how much you love their apparel. 
Because you know you wanna see this coolness on your kid. 

Thanks to Ahoy Amigo for allowing me the privilege to feature them on Lux! 
We're super thrilled with our amigo!:-D

Lannie B. Handmade

So, if you know anything about me, you'll know one major thing...
i adore COLOR.

Bright Colors.
Mixing and matching colors and patterns..
It's just my thing.

So when Lannie B. Handmade gave me the opportunity to collaborate with her,

I was beyond ecstatic.

I'm gonna gush for a second because I am the least creative person in the history of the world.
I mean, i painted a birdhouse neon blue in high you think any bird in it's right mind ever went near it?
not a one.

Lannie B Handmade is the talent behind beautiful garlands, skirts, and apparel. 
She asked what I was thinking for a garland, and all I did was show a picture of Lux's room, and she came up with the perfect decor for Lux's reading nook. (which also serves as a backdrop for many of Lux's shoots!:)) 

Can you say "perfect" for Lux?
 They're really well stitched together.
and the individual shapes aren't flimsy like felt. 
Here are some close ups of the stitching.

 As I'm piecing Lux's room together, we might be revolving everything around these garlands, because they are just. that. perfect. for Lux's personality.

Here's our test run for pics with the touch of color from the garland.

It might have been successful if Lux wasn't such a goofball:).
I think you might be seeing many more pics of her in front of these goodies.

Lannie B Handmade  makes all sorts of garlands, 
Christmas, Halloween, shapes, glitter, glamour, the works.

It's one of those shops that makes you swoon for decor.
String em all over the house if i could.

Head over to Lannie B Handmade for these garlands, but also to get geared up for football season, as she makes the sweetest little skirts for girls to cheer along side their daddy's favorite football team!

you'll be seeing quite a bit of this lady's talents on my blog.
Now please check out the shop and support this small business! (the prices are awesome too...did i mention that yet?!)
