tags

alice loves to chew on tags. i'm thinking most babies do? it's her favorite part of the toy, until i'm a buzzkill and remove them. to make up for it, i made her a toy full of tags that she can safely chew on. i got the idea from lotta jansdotter's simple sewing for baby, except i didn't have any ribbon so i made/used some various bias binding i had.


 she was skeptical at first.


then she decided it was clearly more fun to thrash around instead of chew on.


still more fun to thrash.


until we went for a walk and she happily chewed on it the whole way in her stroller.
no picture of that needed. it's in the wash now.

coriander


this perfume by d.s. & durga was a christmas present and i am obsessed. it smells soooo good. as someone who doesn't really like perfume, i can't stop wearing this. everyday.
i don't find it overpowering, it doesn't give me a headache, it smells fresh and is a nice mix of feminine and masculine and it doesn't bother the baby either. perfect.
