Handbags Oh My!

photos courtesy of Kedra Giddens!

This week we received a little package in the mail from our dear friends, The Giddens'.

Inside we discovered two adorable handbags - perfect for a sweet little girl to hold all of her treasures inside! And as a bonus, the handbags come with the sweetest little matching pinwheel hair clip.

Seriously, Kedra - you knock my socks off!

I have yet to put these up under our collaborator button, but if you are interested they are going for $15 each. (one bag+hair clip) plus remember $3 for shipping :)

Thanks Giddens' - can't wait to get Hannah & Kate together for a cross-country play date!

Hello Bird!

My friend Heather Avis is probably one of the most amazing women I know. And I remember the exact moment I met her thinking - man she's cool!

Well, it's no wonder she's come up with Hello Bird, an adorable little boutique consisting of fabulous vintage finds. Apart from her business ventures, she is also an adoptive mother and understands the great joy as well as hardship found in pursuing adoption. Heather and her husband Josh have greatly spurred Jeff and I on in our faith by living out the gospel in such a radical way! Their faith is grand and we praise God for them! You can follow their journey here.

Here are some pretty sweet handmades Heather has put together for Kate's Craft Fair! For more details check them out under the collaborators button.

(our new handmaids via Heather Avis at My Hello Bird.)

It's been a loooong time since we've updated anything on here. The summer is quickly getting away with me - what can I say. I have some new items to show you, new prices on existing items, and a big thanks to everyone who has helped us out with this whole adventure!

We've still have a ton of money to raise - but we are steadily making our way.

So far, after the grant we get from Target once our girl is home, we've raised $9500. Not bad but still a long way to go to reach $28,000 :)

So, check out what's new, reconsider what's old, and tell your friends!

Much Love,

The Marshmans
