Happy Fall Ya'll!

Wishing you and yours
a very fun and safe
Halloween filled with good food, great friends, fabulous family, and cherished memories!


The Great Pumpkin Hunt is ON!

Just wanted to share some quick picks of us at the pumpkin patch with the littles. Yes, the hunt is on...
Isabella likes the shape of this one, but it's not big enough she says...

Hmmm, how about these over here? I was liking the silver-green ones, apparently, Lili was too.
So we searched the patch, high and low...


and Ta-Da! Liliana finds the perfect little pumpkin sitting on the farmers table. Ahhh, the feeling of sweet success and happiness!

Like Kids in a Candy Store

Ahhhh, to be a kid again! As a little pre-birthday celebration, we visited Savannah's City Market the evening before my birthday this year. Stop #1: yep, Savannah's Candy Kitchen. Oh, my! Is it ever yummy! The best pralines and carmel apples ever, really. Here you can witness my little girls drooling over the goodies.


So, what do you think was the big hit of this shoppe stop? The Taffy Train! It delivers warm, freshly made taffy to the candy bins on the opposite side of the store. Straight down the shoot the taffy goes and big smiles and amusement all around! My girls were fascinated with it. Daddy, of course, gave each of them a turn up on his shoulder to watch the candy fall . Big Fun!

Stop #2: off to a very casual dinner and dancing in City Market afterward with the family~now that was really, really big fun for me...I LOVE to dance! I hope my girls remember going to City Market and dancing with me. I danced with them there just before my youngest, Liliana, was born. I have very fond memories of both occasions and hope they can remember at least a littlepiece of being free birds with their momma! Then off to see the beautiful new fountain there. Aren't the lights and water great? You should check out the fountain in the summer time. Now, that's a great way to cool off here in the Southern heat. Anyway, I love all the colors!!! Nothing like a rainbow to make for a happy day.

Family photo (actually 1/2 the family, so weird that my big kids have their own "stuff to do", but at the same time I know that that is just life). Thanks nice passerby for taking this shot of us! And maybe I shouldn't show this "self portrait" as it shows both of our ages, but this is a tradition for me and Brian. We started taking a snapshot of ourselves years ago at different destinations/occasions. Makes for an interesting photobook :o). Happy, Schmappy together...just like kids in a candy store!

Fabulously Lucky!

Wow, what a FABULOUS day Finds! had at the Harvest Festival! Thank you to all who made it such a fruitful day for me. I really had a good time meeting lots of new customers and making some great connections. It's so much fun to see people truly get excited about my pieces and "discovering me" as they sometimes say. Affirmation is always nice, isn't it? Also what a treat is was to see so many familiar faces and have loyal customers seek out my tent!!! That really was a big thrill for me...is that silly? I think not!! Or maybe that is Lucky...maybe. What I do know is that that is me and Finds! moving in exactly the right direction and straight at my goal--LOVE IT, love happy repeat customers who enjoy and share in dressing their little girls like little girls.
Here I am with two of my girls, Isabella and Charlotte. They took a break from all the festivities to hang out with me for a few minutes before they were off to the pirate ship playground. Big thanks to Marge, my lovely mother-in-law, who always has her trusty camera on her and ready for action at any family happening. Really, she is Johnny on the Spot with this stuff! Comes in very, very handy~LUCKY me, again!

Free Monogram!

Okay, so here it is...a sample of what the FREE monogram looks like. Being a real computer savvy queen that I'm NOT, I had to do a separate post to show this sample from a previous order. Pretty cute, huh?
EnJoy!

I'm in Poncho City!

Yes, that's right...I'm in what I'm calling Poncho City! I took my goods to the Shrimp Festival and to the Festival of the Sea recently and now I have oodles of poncho orders to fill.
Don't all of the girls look so sweet? They love to play and twirl in their ponchos! The just happen to be the perfect weight for transitional weather in Fall and Spring, easy wear for the girls and easy care for us mommies (these wash up beautifully, too!).

Check them out on my website or find me at one of my Fall/Holidays shows. These little ponchos make great gifts and are a great value priced at only $38, which includes a FREE MONOGRAM, yes that is FREE! Also, I will ship anywhere in the US for a very reasonable rate (trying to make gift giving easy on ya'll).

Many beautiful colors available, but I do sell out quickly, so if you see a color combo you like then you should snag it up! I'm so excited to offer some new Holiday colors coming soon:

Christmas Green, Lollipop Red, Snowy Ivory, two shades of Royal Purple, and a few more, too! I'll be sure to show you as soon as I get them ready. Brace yourselves....they're going to be yummy cute!!

Isabella is showing how "forgiving" the design is. The girls are not restricted at all while playin' or behavin'...Ta Da!

Kick Off!

My first trunk show season has officially been kicked off! Thanks Cynthia for being my first hostess and making the party a success!! I now have more orders to get out, which is very exciting for me. Also, for those of you who couldn't make it to Cynthia's party, I will be in Port Royal, SC this Sat., October 16th for the Festival of the Sea. Check out my "happenings" page on my website for more festival and trunk show news, dates, & locations:


Turns out that my new school uniform ruffle pants were a big hit....just what I was hoping for!
For those of you who don't know, I offer knit ruffle pants in khaki or navy and corduroy ruffle pants in navy only at this time, in sizes 5-8. I have made up a test
batch of each. They're so cute and comfy, I promise! I'm definitely looking to expand this part of my line. I found it so dreadful last Fall when I had to dress my Isabella in "school uniforms", which is a whole new concept for me as my older children were not
required to do so. And poor Isabella was beside herself on much more than one morning while getting dressed for school and just truly heartbroken that she could no longer wear her "cute clothes" to school as she had done for the last two years at nursery school. It was a real shocker for us both! However, I do have to admit that school uniform dressing is easy...but seriously it doesn't need to be so dang boring! SO....I'm testing the waters right now to see how these first uniform ruffle pants fly and if all goes well, I will be adding capris and skirts, too! Who says school uniforms can't be cute and cool to wear????? I think it is time to add some "Fab" to school uniforms...care to share in the fun with me?



I'm open to feedback and suggestions! Let me know what you think~I'd really love to hear from you.
