Felt food fever

I've caught the felt food bug! Cadence got a really cool play kitchen for her birthday a few months ago, and I wanted to make some food items for it. I knew the cardboard store bought stuff would not last with our children, and the plastic stuff just wasn't cool enough for her retro kitchen. I saw a photo in an older potterybarn kids magazine that gave me the inspiration to begin my quest. I started with strawberries.



Here are my goodies all set up- I love the way it looks in neat piles.



Sierra even helped me sew some of them. We made 18 little cuties.



They are adorable. Whats funny is that my son is more excited about playing with them and making strawberry pies in the play kitchen than my daughter currently is. Chef Jared, make momma proud!

I'm still here!

So much for being a good blogger. I forgot my own log in information! ;) Lets see, what have I done this month? We traveled to the Ozarks for my niece's high school graduation. That was an adventure, for sure. I suppose its good to touch base with one's roots every now and then, though. Sorry, no pics- we broke our camera at the beach. Sand in the lens. I did score a big box of very old photographs from my Aunt Peggy. I have to digitize them and give them back, but I am sooo excited about creating a family history album to go with my ancestory.com research. I'll share as it comes along.
