My sister Meghan has the most beautiful extended family through divorce and remarriage.  Meghan became a Grandma to little Autumn and gained two beautiful daughters.  Elizabeth and Genevieve.  Sophie her biological daughter  you all know for her modeling for Sis Boom.  I am so blessed to be an aunt of these way beautiful kiddos.  Here they are in their Atlanta Home and I love how Sis Boom organically lives there .  Color can sit comfortably anywhere.  I know sometimes it frightens us, color doesn’t have to be a dirty word and if you have landed here chances are you are very comfortable with color. I feel like the spokesperson for color and I feel sometimes a need to apologize for their vibrancy but it is where I live and I have to honor that.  I hope that Sis Boom ignites a passion or fills you up with happiness I know it does me.  Try to let go  and try to embrace that inner color geek! So look here at these beautiful photos and say hey to the Atlanta gang.  We love our girls!!

Taking flight!!

Do you know Harveys on First?? Well in Delray Beach there is a shop called Harveys on First owned by the Snappy Turtle They do beach better than anyone!!!  Take a look around the site. So my girlfriend Judy Buchanan creates beautiful childrens clothing for them and is having a bang up year creating her own designs as well as designs from Girls World to sell in their shop !!!  Her business is called Hickity Pickity and she fills Harveys on First with the most beautiful of childrens clothing. Judy and I met here when she was working with Sis Boom fabrics and posting her creations in flickr.  I was like whoa Nelly!!!  Once again in this recession folks are finding away to create businesses like Judy’s and enjoying the fruits!  She is one amazing woman and everyone loves chatting her up on facebook. She started Sewing in fifth grade and used the remnants from her Uncles drapery workroom to create her school clothes which is a story we can all relate too, which you just have to love. I think it’s the Beach Vibe that we love about each other.  Having lived in Melbourne and having her home on the river, unites us in a special way,  it’s the water that completes us.  Thanks Judy for all the beauty you continue to bring to this world , we are forever grateful!

Baby it’s cold outside!

So Maddie and I are sitting here giggling through a WordPress tutorial and we decided to use this baby shot to express how we are feeling.  It’s 6 oclock and pitch black out the kind of night that you sew up something pretty or take a snooze  after a long day at the office.  We are just writing to say we hope you have a warm and cozy night  however you decide to spend it.  Sweet dreams.  Oh and if this is your baby we think it’s so adorable .  Let us know!!!
