Happy Weekend

I know I’m a bit late posting, but I thought better late then never!  My daughters are at grandma’s and hubby and I had opportunity to go out to dinner alone.  While the restaurant we went to was absolutely horrible (I couldn’t even eat the food – it was that bad), I’m glad to have spent some time alone.

This holiday weekend (it’s Labor Day for those of you outside of the US) and I plan on just working on my hobbies.  I’ve been thinking about starting a huge mixed media art project (maybe 4′ x 6′) but need to sketch out my design.  The inspiration for this work will be Valentino’s rose silk purse from the Spring/Summer 2009 catalog.  I think this bag is just gorgeous!

Not sure if anything will come of the exploration, but if it does, I’ll let you know.

Deux par Deux

For many, next month means the start of a new school year.  I know, I know it seems absolutely wrong to even be discussing this as school just got out last month.  And by no means do we need to mention this to the kiddies (let them enjoy the wonders of summer!).   But I bring it to your attention because many childrens clothing lines have already begun releasing their Fall lines.  Deux par Deux is no exception and has brought us yet another exceptional Fall collection.

I can’t stop looking at all of the beautiful photos!  This photographer captured such amazing shots.  I wonder how long it took to shoot the catalog and if the children were generally cooperative.  To see the full catalog, click here (must have Adobe).

If you happen to find something over at Deux par Deux you can’t live without, act quickly.  About 2 years about, I fell in love with a breathtaking corduroy jacket for my daughter.  It was on the pricey side (for me!) so I thought I’d wait for a sale and have regretted it ever since.  The jacket sold out everywhere – including eBay and so I never got it.

Other great kids designer lines to consider:

1.  Catimini – A European clothing line created by Monique and Paul Salmon in 1972.

2. Oilily – Another European childrens clothing line established in 1963.  Aside from selling childrens clothes, they also sell accessories and womens clothing.

3. Room Seven – Unique and fabulous clothing, bedding, and greeting cards from the Netherlands.
