3 things I want


I want Babydews! Babydews are one-of-a-kind vintage fabric head scarves for infants and toddlers. Have you ever seen anything so cute?! They are the brilliant idea of my friend Chris, who is super-stylish and talented, and makes each one herself. The beautiful vintage fabrics make them so special and many are embellished with little embroidered details that make me swoon. If only I had a little girl in my house...

I want this gorgeous book by Lotta Jansdotter. I can't stop thinking about it.


I want aluminum tumblers. Can't you just see them all frosty cold and filled with fresh-squeezed lemonade (who am I kidding? Margaritas.) on a hot summer day? They sell these beauties at the Vermont Country Store (purveyors of the practical and hard to find - a favorite site of mine). Unfortunately, they are a bit pricey, but I've spotted some on ebay. I predict I'll be sipping from them soon.

My big kiddo has been outgrowing his undies, and I fear the invasion of Lightning McQueen underpants. This will make me sound like a snob, but I have aesthetic issues with Disney-branded clothing. I adored the Wonder Woman Underoos I had as a child, so I understand the appeal, but I'm hoping to preserve an innocent state of brand-free undergarments just a little bit longer.

We made little patches with permanent fabric markers and I attached them to his plain old Hanes boxer briefs. The tiger and big black bird were drawn by him. In addition to those pictured here, we made shark, monster truck, caterpiller &
whale undies.



We had so much fun and he loves his undies.

Speaking of mommy/kiddo collaborations, yesterday we began a very ambitious and important robot project (watch for details) and in our search for ideas, we came across Lizette Greco and her kids who create all kinds of inspired and ADORABLE things based on their drawings. They reminded me of our underpants and they make me want to decorate my own wardrobe and everything in my house with drawings by my kids! If you haven't seen her site, you must go.


Another thing I want:

A nap, all alone on my couch in the middle of the afternoon.

I have always loved the undies! My grandmother had aluminum tumblers in various colors from the time of my earliest memories....I have a certain number-0 b-day this year, so that tells you how classic the tumblers are! I love them, and would love to have a number-0 birthday margarita in them!
 
Great idea decorating the underwear.I was just having a conversation with a friend the other day about "Disney". I told her not to be surprised if Disney ruled the world one day (I probably said this while buying Disney underwear)!
 
Oh my god, I LOVE the kid-decorated undies. What a great idea.
 
I ADORE this underwear!! What a clever and sweet project to do, love, love, love it!

My grandparents had those aluminum tumblers, too, and I always thought that they made things taste funny. They are beautiful, though...

It cracks me up to see these things from my youth cycling around again. If I had kept everything I wore in college, I would be a millionaire!
 
You blog is such an inspiration! I can't wait until Elliot and I can make such inventive creations together. What a great Mommy you are!!
 
Cool blog, Molly! Found you via our mutual pal, Miss J over at The Flying Pencil. I'm sure I'll see you at her shower in a couple weeks!
