Olive’s Birthday Outfit!

Oh how I wish Olive could meet her great-grandmother’s.  She is just like both of them in so many ways.  She has her Nanny’s big, Crystal blue beautiful eyes and her Mawmaw’s charm and sweet, giving personality.

I wish they could have celebrated her second birthday with her.  They would be so in love with her and her big brother.

My favorite way to remember them is to encorporate some of their belongings in my decor and give their pieces new life!

I got a LOT of questions asking for links to Olive’s birthday party outfit from this weekend.  Sadly, I can’t link it for you but I can teach you how to easily make a replica… hopefully this helps…

I ordered this organic  linen  romper and these handmade rainbow tassels from Etsy.

My plan was to use my grandmother’s embroidered  handkerchief on her outfit so I needed the outfit to have a large square space that I could stitch it to.  Search for whatever works best for your project and whatever  passed down item you have.

I then cut the  handkerchief to the exact size of the square, chest portion of the romper and hand stitched it on.

(I had a little helper!)

If you look closely, you can see, the tassels came with metal rings attached to each one. I took all of them off and hand stitched each tassel, in the pattern I chose, around the  handkerchief.

I think it turned out too stinkin’ cute and she LOVED it!  It gave a sweet memory of her grandmother new life.

Thank you for reading!

As always, Love, Savannah. 🖤

  • No ones life is perfect.  Don’t ever let anyone try and convince you of that.  If it looks that way it’s probably because of a really good filter.  But moments like these... man, soak them up mamas.  Moments like these are pretty perfect. 😭🤩🥰 I hope your Memorial Day weekend is full of lots of these moments. .

  • It’s 2019 and some how keeping up with the Kardashian’s is higher on our priority list than making sure we have an alternative for all of the plastic we rely on daily. We will stand around for hours protesting others rights, but we are too lazy to walk a block to the market instead of drive. The cost of living, expectations, and demands are higher making it nearly impossible to grow our own food, volunteer, cook meals that aren’t processed, or even teach our children to be kind. We believe the lie that we are all too busy to make a difference, when we’re really just consumed by working on our social media image and staring at our screens so often that our kids forget what our faces look like!  I get so frustrated by so many worldly distractions that I fall into all of these traps. I’m working on converting all of these frustrations into actions and being the change. We can only control our attitude, our effort, and our response and I want mine to all be positive. We’re all just trying to figure it out you know? Thank y’all for being here on our journey as we try and shine a little light. .

  • I live for the little moments when I can feel the magnitude of the words my grandmother used to say to me, “ Never forget to stop and smell the roses. “  It’s at 5am, in a new city, seeing the colors in the sunrise from a whole new perspective.  Its when you’re wearing your favorite long sleeve T-shirt and shorts, smelling the rain, and listening to the perfect John Mayer song. It’s when you get to the top of that mountain you’ve been climbing. It’s taking time to put your phone away and laugh with the ones you love the most. It’s seeing a genuine smile on your child’s face when they’ve just accomplished the impossible. It’s when you feel the sun from the inside out. It’s when you pause, and in that exact moment you realize this is it. Then the little moments become the big ones and you start investing in them. .
