funky onesies

some of the hot items at the first festival were tea-dyed applique’d onesies, so i’ve been replenishing and adding to the stock. below are some of my new ones.  rather  than tea, i’ve been using coffee, and I plan on experimenting with some other natural dyes soon.

thanks for checking out my new blog!

as many of you know, sarah and i recently debuted our new lula in london line; however,  after a successful cider days festival, we have decided to each head our own direction.  we discussed how collaboration is difficult since we live so far apart and how there are tons of horror stories of best friends becoming enemies after going into business together.  so as a result, sarah will carry on under lula in london, and i will call my line dear london. i will focus on eclectic home and baby goods.

my new name pays homage to the future daughter i hope to have, and of course my love and longing to live in the ever romantized and idealized london, england. i attempted to think of a name with noah in it (my lovely energetic little man), but “noah” doesn’t lend itself to romantic connotations, and after brainstorming i was unable to come up with even one good option!  sorry buddy! i tried.

sarah and i are very excited for each other, and i would encourage any readers to check out her etsy site here.  she has beautiful, unique baby clothes and accessories. i will open an etsy site after my next festival, which is in o’fallon, missouri at the o’fallon fall festival, october 9 and 10.  love to see you there!

i will use this blog to highlight my creations and chat about any projects of interest. i would love it and be so appreciative if you know of anyone who may be interested in following this new undertaking of mine!  thanks to those of you who have been so supportive thus far.  you guys are great and your encouragement means so much!  love to all.

here are a couple of pieces already in my inventory.  i’m currently working on much more, and will post new pictures soon.
