YAY! I've finally starting listing the Devon Rose fall collection today. Kudos to Devon as she was a wonderful model today too. I love you, monkey!

First two items are the Playdate Blouse:

~ From the Universe ~

By design, Emily, whenever you have a new dream, or re-commit to an old one, at that precise moment everything in your life is perfectly suited to bring it about even faster than if you had thought of it earlier.

You are always where you most "need" to be.

You can thank me now, The Universe


~ Happy Thought ~

When in a hurry, step #1 for changing the entire world, is falling in love with it as it already is.
Same for changing yourself. And best of all, with this approach, there is no step 2.


~ Spring Collections ~

Alexander Wang Doo.Ri
Christopher Kane
Vivienne Westwood Red Label
Helmut Lang

Devon took a longer nap today which gave me the chance to check out some of my favorite designers collections for next Spring. Here's some of my picks for the season so far. I'm still waiting for Balenciaga , was disappointed by Proenza Schouler, and I have to say that I'm really loving Alexander Wang at the moment.


~ Toy Reunion ~

Thanks for everything, Auntie Heidi and Auntie Rachel! Devon is ecstatic to have all of her toys again and with all of our furniture moved in ...it finally feels like home:)


~ Fall Fabric Line-Up ~


Here's just a sneak peek at some of the new prints, plaids, and stripes for the Devon Rose Fall Collection! I'm so excited and inspired to make new pieces, so be on the lookout for precious l/s printed blouses, and comfy funnel neck sweaters. I'll be pairing them with plaid jumpers, corduroy overalls, culottes, two-toned brown denim skirts and stripey suspender pants...

later comes updated mini moccasins, headbands, and our new pretty purses :)


~Free Range & Fall Fabric~

I am so in love with this top from freerangebaby.etsy.com ...yet another fabulous children's designer from New Zealand!

I'm going fabric shopping tomorrow for the new Devon Rose fall collection! I've already purchased a beautiful floral print cotton organza from this crazy little "curiosities" shop my husband and I stumbled upon the other day. It was an amazing collection of antique furniture, clothing, housewares, and fabric mixed with voodoo masks, quack antique doctor's instruments and what looked like a chair from an insane asylum for little kids. Anyways, I'm definitely going back for more! Be sure to check out my fall collection which will start posting around the 27th of this month :)


~It's Not Just Fish Anymore~

We took Devon to the Dallas World Aquarium on Sunday and even though I had been there in the past (ten years ago) it was a completely new experience for all of us! What was once just a plain ol' building has now been converted into a multi-level rain forest with free-range birds of all kinds, manatees, monkeys, giant otters, and the only publicly displayed three-toed sloth in the U.S. (and he was completely free-ranged as well) It was amazing to be right there next to him without any cage between us. He actually reached out to touch Devon! I've never seen her so captivated - she had a blast! If you love animals, you gotta check it out :)


~ Thought For The Day ~

Whenever your perspective on something creates emotional pain, it's always because your perspective is still so narrow that you've yet to see all the good it will make possible.
Because it will.
