Shout outs!!

I haven't thanked you individually for the shout out to my mom but she read each of your comments and loved them so much!!  She left today and as many of you experience with your mothers it's just never enough time.  I love her for the values and beliefs she imparted and for the gentle way she nudges her offspring never critical or judgmental just wise and loving.  There are no perfect words for the love I hold for that woman.  She saved me many a time from the lure of self criticism and self doubt and gave me a new way of seeing the world.  Now she gets to enjoy her daughter doing the very thing that she loved doing.  Mom delights in the beauty of things and loved to share that beauty with others.  Mom is tender with people and touches me with her welcome spirit.  Thanks for embracing her!  She really and I might add humbly was a style icon for many women.  She was an avid Jackie O watcher and always loved fashion!  She's a great color editor and I was glad to have her eye over my shoulder when designing the next collection.  I think you will like what we put together.  Once we get approval we will show what we did!!  So thanks mom for coming , for your input, and your informed color sense and your love of everything beautiful.  love, me

So now we switch gears and take a look at my friend Missy Barze latest collection for Nest Couture her children's clothing brand.  I feel so honored that she debuted with the fabrics from Dance with me!   She is a lovebug and you can not help but fall in love with her wonderful designs.  These designs are so special and so dreamlike and I couldn't be happier for her.  This is a tremendous launch girly girl!!  Missy so happy it all came together you've been through quite a bit and I can say it was all worth it and you deserve tremendous praise for hanging in there.  You are such a special lady!!  So please visit her ..tell her I sent you and enjoy the beauty Timi Carl gave to her website!!  I wish Missy only good things.

    My Mum and I live on different sides of the planet. It’s hard. My lovely Man secretly set up, in cohorts with my Dad, a video call link this weekend for my Birthday. We sat and laughed at each other for almost the entire 56 mins of the call. So worth it.

    The description of your Mom could be on a card. It is amazing the power that they can have over us (even if we do not want to admit it). I am so glad that you were able to enjoy your time with her; and how wonderful to get her views on your designs.

    Adorable dresses! It was also great meeting you Sunday. I picked up some great treasures and gorgeous fresh flowers. They seemed to have it all. I am sure I will see you again. Happy hunting!
    P.S. Does that little dress come with bloomers or is the lengh of the dress extended?

  13. What a Blessing to have had such a wonderful time with your precious mom! Can’t wait to see what delightful things you all came up with! I just know they will be lovely! …and thank you for sharing the new children’s line…off to visit her site!

    Hi Natalie! thank you for the kind comments! they are certainly appreciated!
    How sweet to get your niece a new dress! I used to be able to buy for my niece, but she is 16 years old now! It’s hard to keep up with all the latest teen fashion- it changes every week it seems- lol!
    Please stop by and check out the site- Enjoy- !! remember “Nest” when you are buying for your precious niece- all the girls themselves have gone crazy for the Harlequin Collection… they love Jennifer’s dreamy fabrics just as much as I do!
    I was with a friend today and her little girl had one of the outfits on and she was too cute saying” I’m going to sleep in my Nest clothes!” Hearing things like that brighten my day so very much!
    The inspiration for Nest C. has always come from the children! Five here on earth and my one precious 2 year old little angel in heaven! She is a huge inspiration!
    It makes my heart flutter when I hear wonderful comments like yours! It is incredible to me to have the opportunity to design all these adorable garments for so many little girls all over so many places! We had a lady from England become a Nest Fan and one from Canada too! We would love to add you to our “Nest ” family! Any questions… feel free to contact me! “Thanks yous” again, šŸ™‚ Missy

  37. Missy Barze says:

    Hi Allie! I agree… what a great tribute to her sweet Mum! She is a cutie! Now we see where Jennifer’s “amazing-ness” came from!

It is about “making the fairytale ending come true:!! thx for your kindness! oxo šŸ™‚ Missy

  43. Missy Barze says:

    Hi Terriaw! It is such a special thing to have such a great relationship with your mom! I could not live without mine!
    Your kindness about the “adorable” Nest Couture dresses is so appreciated!! My favorite part is putting all the fabrics together making little paper dolls:) Jennifer’s fabrics just spark my creativity everytime! The first dress is certainly a favorite of mine too! Remember we would love for you to become part of the “Nest” fan family so… check out the site if you get a chance! Thank you again for your thoughtfulness! ox Missy

  44. Missy Barze says:

    Hi Karla! I agree with you! Three cheers to Mum and three cheers to Jennifer, her beautiful, talented daughter! šŸ™‚ Missy- Nest Couture

  45. Missy Barze says:

    Hi Debra! Glad to hear you say the ” Nest ” pieces are “adorable”. As I told another very thoughtful person… I “adored” creating them!
    Please check out the website to see our Harlequin Collection all made with Jennifer’s lovely, yummy fabric!
    If you are asking if the dress “comes with the bloomers” no, they are two different pieces listed and you can view them in two different photos.
    “Bloomers” is actually the word we chose to use instead of pants- Little girls in bloomers sounded so cute.. better than little girls in pants… so.. when you visit the Nest site you will see ,little darling, has on the dress AND the bloomers(pants) with a circle peplum on them. We think it makes for a precious combination!
    Hope we can add you to our “Nest” fan family Hope you like what you see in the Harlequin Collection. Thank you for your sweet comment- They always mean so much! šŸ™‚ ox Missy

  46. Missy Barze says:

    Hello Jill! Yes, a blessing it is to spend time with Mom! I can’t wait to see what they came up with either!
    I appreciate and am so grateful to Jennifer for sharing the news about Nest Couture’s debut Harlequin Collection! I truly hope you enjoyed your visit to the site! Hope you loved what you saw!
    It makes my day and puts a little pep in my step when I know someone is enjoying viewwing the collection! The inspriation for “Nest” truly comes from deep within… it is a blessing to me to be able to create these pieces that make little girls and Mommies giggle with happiness… the little ones have loved all the dreamy colors and the feel and comfort of the garments all made with TLC out of the fabulous Jennifer P.’s delicious fabrics!
    If you get a sec let me know what your thoughts are and hope you will become a “Nest” fan family member on our Facebook page! “thank yous” to you! Be looking for exciting “news” coming soon! thx again for visiting! ox Missy

  47. Missy Barze says:

    Hi Cathy! I really dont know how to say thank you enough for your amazingly sweet comments. I “melted” when I read them! You hit the nail on the head and must have crawled in my brain because I don’t know what makes me so truly drawn into Jennifer’s fabric- It is a combination of some many different things… but one of them is the fabrics make our little angels just that… they look like precious, beautiful little girls as they should all year around in any season! Nest Couture is timeless and seasonless.Jennifer’s heavenly fabric’s are the same way. I think that is another reason I’m just devoted to her creations! There is nothing else like it- she is a one of kind talented lovely lady!
    Thx again, šŸ™‚ Missy
