Super Cute Tote

When I was in Florida last month, the moon and stars aligned and I was able to see my brother-in-law and his family who live in Houston, Texas. I know, it was very unexpected that we were in the same place at the same time - what fun.

During the few days that our vacations overlapped, we shopped, went to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner and generally spent some much needed time together.

When my sister-in-law and nieces (11 & 6 years-old) went shopping with me, the youngest said, "I have an idea for my birthday, Aunt Anne."

She had been "looking me over" all week and enjoyed figuring out which accessories I had made. She particularly liked a tote that I had slip covered with bright Lilly-like fabric, covered buttons and a touch of ribbon. She asked if I could design one for her and voila! It is going in the mail today. A super cute tote for a super cute seven-year-old. Happy Birthday, honey!

How sweet! The tote turned out great!! Nothing fuels me like family time. We all live so far apart but when we get together it feels so good! I am glad you had a great visit!!
Love Lilly

What a lucky little niece! Such a cute age for little girls, Anne. I'm sure she will be thrilled with her tote.

She called us last night to thank us. Such a little sweetheart on the phone - we agreed that we would both carry our totes at the family reunion this Spring.
