Santa Baby

Floral Crown: DIY
Brooch: DIY
Tights: Gift from sister
Shoes: Modcloth

Hello there darlings!

I trust that each and every one of you had a magical Christmas and are stuffing yourself with plenty of goodies, enjoying your families and friends, and getting plenty of r&r.  I'm currently back in my hometown doing just that, so I'm making it quick today as breakfast is calling and so are those homemade sticky buns.  A little more from my Christmas later though...

Earlier this month, the gals from Flock Together held a Secret Santa gift swap where we each sent a piece of clothing to one another.  Of course I was just tickled when my packaged arrived and I was greeted by this little teal babydoll dress thrifted and altered for me by the very lovely Hannah, of The Braided Bandit.  I'd say she has my number down pretty well :)  You can view more from our Secret Santa exchange right here.

As you can see we got a sprinkling of snow and actually were laced with another round of the frosting on Christmas Eve, adorning my hometown in the prettiest white Christmas it's seen in a while.

So tell me darlings, was your Christmas snowy and white?

Talk soon!
