  1. Great idea and looks cute on Emma.. I’d have to wait for Kiwi to get bigger before trying though. Right now she would have more fun pulling them off hmmm then again that would give her something to do…

  2. Just today I was wondering what I should do with the long-sleeved white Tee I’m wearing as it’s worn through on the elbows… now I know what to do with it tomorrow! :)

  4. Who would ever have thought of such a creative and useful way to find a way to be in style and look so adorable in that style? Well for sure I do know the answer and Emma is a lucky one to have her as a Momma- That is one intelligent way of dressing in style and not breaking the bank to do so. love ya g and g.
