things i love...

hand made goodness...for little girls. felt food is one of my big time obsessions. i can't get enough of it, i'm working on making some patterns of my own because i see that there are a lot of felt food out there, but not many patterns. the strawberries were my first attempt at making felt something or other last summer . remember when i showed you these milk bottles a while ago? they are still by far one of my favorite second hand finds and i love that they are solid wood and that they look so dang cute in her kitchen.this little kitchen is made out of all odd pieces of wood that were hanging out in my shop, my wonderful friend who just has a knack for making things helped me make the little one's kitchen sink and oven...and here's something you probably don't know about me...i'm an 85% to 95%-er. what does that mean? oh well do you see all those staples just hanging out there for all to see? yeah i'm suppose to put ric rac or ribbon over that...it's been a year since i made it but lo and behold there is sits ALMOST done... and there you have it the definition of what an 85% to 95%-er is. i'm also suppose to make a fridge to go with the whole kitchen...maybe this summer.
this yummy doll quilt was made out of scraps from the little one's baby blanket...one of her favorites as well as mine.

and apparently this is what happens when mom goes out to lunch with some friends. GI Joe husband chuckled as i walked thorough the door and said "you have to see the picture i took of the little one." i asked if she was throwing a fit in the picture and he then replied "uh, no that's your daughter out cold on the floor after "cooking." apparently you and she have more in common than you thought...you both have the attitude that cooking is hard and exhausting." ha.ha.ha.

That is just the sweetest thing! I love how kids pass out in the funniest spots. I'm looking forward to those days. For now, I just get the cute baby butt in the air. I also am a 85-95%-er. I think it runs in my family!

What a great shot! :) I love all this felt food that's been going around blogdom. I also love all the wood play food that you can get from Doug and Melissa, if only it were a little cheaper.

And if it makes you feel any better, my whole house if chock full of "almost" done projects. :)

And she has on the little bandana skirt while cooking! So sweet! I only wish I could go straight to sleep after cooking. What a lucky little gal to have such a crafty mom! The food is cute as can be. Do you end up playing with it, too? It would be hard for me to resist!

Just dicovered blogs and I love, love, love, yours. Thanks to G.I. Joe for his service! Ok, the 85-95%er thing ... My philosophy ... excuse ... rationalization ... is that many of us love to explore, create, figure out, etc. Once we have figured out that we can do it ... the challenge is over and we move on to the next one! From the looks of what you get accomplished -- HOLY SMOKES -- I better get moving!

I looked exactly like her after I cooked Thanksgiving dinner last year. Well, except I'm older and bigger and I'd need 50 of those bandanas for a skirt. Almost exactly. Mimi

Sal Gal said...

Love the stuff you make! I am so happy you have a girl to spoil!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Yes, I find cooking that exhausting. Now, if I could only fall asleep as easily when I'm exhausted. So cute (and one lucky little girl.)

Deeanna said...

Woah! That comment about your GI Joe being home with the kids while you were out with friends really caught me off guard. I haven't forgotten that his deployment has ended, I've just forgotten about the luxury of what it is like to have a husband at home. My turn's coming!!!

Cara said...

Oh how sweet! Sweet little felt food, sweet kitchen, sweet baby doll quilt (all my fave fabrics) and the sweetest- little one asleep on the floor! Thanks for sharing!

amandajean said...
