Fashion Friday: Dee & Meg PDX Days

It’s Fashion Friday!

We’ve been incredibly bad about posting while I’ve been up here.  What have we been doing with our time you ask?  Well taking care of the kiddos!  And making lots of wedding preparations.  We’ve actually been cooking a ton, which we will be sharing those posts.  But somehow everything else has flown out of the window (except making onesies or children’s tees).

We finally pulled together Fashion Friday!  Hopefully we’ll be a lot better at this in the near future.  Here are Meg and Dee . . . just hanging out at the house this afternoon. :)

We’ll be posting some stuff we’ve been making for the wedding- some more DIY and some cute dress pics?

Have a great weekend!  Hope you forgive us of our tardiness!

ENJOY! ash

Fashion Friday: Little Boys Graphic Tees

It’s fashion friday!

It’s funny, both Meg and I are transitioning right.  I’m right in the middle of figuring our my graduate school acceptance and starting summer classes.  Meg just got back from her 3-4 month stay in China for her PHD work, which is why our posts have been a little light(not our usual) as of late.  I thought it would be fun to share with you my favorite thing right now for Jax . . .

GRAPHIC TEES

We’ve pretty much transitioned to using only t-shirts and pants/shorts for Jax.  I find using two pieces easier with a squirmy one year old who won’t lay on his back for anything anymore . . . not even changing a diaper.  It’s a game of finding something that will occupy him while I change his diaper (or his clothes) or I’m chasing after him with a diaper, which he loves being chased.

I’ve found a lot of cute tees at target, old navy, carter’s, and of course WE MAKE THEM!  I shared with you some of our recent creations last week.  If you have a shirt that you want upcycled to a cute baby, toddler, or children’s tee, contact us at our shop or via email  for details.  Here are a few cute ones I found that I’m eying for Jax:

i actually bought this one in Target for really cheap, like $5.

This is supper cute. Love the bright neon color, which is totally popular this summer. Carter’s Tee – $10.50

ummm . . . don’t mom’s rock! of course they do. :) Carter’s Tee – $6

back of the above shirt.

So you get the idea . . . :)  We sometimes go through a couple shirts a day.  What can I say – Jax plays like a little boy, plus he’s learning to eat like a big kid.  So we are both messy often!

Have a great weekend!

ENJOY! ash

Happy Birthday to us!!

If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been and why Ash has taken over the majority of the postings its because my time here in China is winding down and we’re preparing to make the move back to the US.  This involves transitioning my intern for the panda work, playtime with my friend who is visiting, and of course – celebrating my/our 31st Birthday!

Ash and I turned the big 3.1. on the 22nd.  It’s weird for me being officially in my 30’s now!  I can’t believe what has taken place since we started our little double life togetherin the womb to now owning our own little business and blogging with you wonderful people weekly! If you would have told the 15 year old version of myself that I’d be living in China with my daughter studying pandas, she wouldn’t have believed you… in fact it’s still hard for me to believe. But you know what I’m most excited about?

The next 30 years! How I hope that tumblewee grows and prospers under the artistic direction of my talented twin sister and the fabulous support from the handmade and blogging worlds.

Thanks for being there for us on our journey.

Fashion Friday OR Friday Wants: Boys of Summer

Ok – so I confess, I didn’t have time to do the Fashion Friday shoot this week.  Plus, my photographer is gone for the week (Europe – lucky gal).  So I did something a little like Wednesday Wants: I collected a spattering of cool summer inspired boys items both clothing and toys.  I’ll share with you my favorite boy clothing items, since it is Fashion Friday.

Riding a bike always reminds me of summer.  Something about the feeling of the wind in your face, and feeling like a free spirit.  Both of these items are perfect for summer.

riding a bike always reminds me of summer.

make sure to check out her other cute shirts. it was a toss between this one and amo.

This shirt reminds me of wearing an aquarium, which I have this deep excitement to take Jax to one.  He’s always enthralled with fish tanks whenever we see them.

This would be perfect for the beach, not to mention the fact that I love stripes.

And of course you’ll need this for the beach when you go there:

I’m not sure why, but I’m really digging sharks as a fashion trend for little boys this summer.  Maybe that’s always the case.

Make sure to check out all of the other cute etsy summer items I choose on our list.  There are lot of cute items out there that are made with love, and by hand.

Hopefully I’ll be back in full Fashion Friday swing next week!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Featured Etsy Shop: Bohemian Seed

You know how I’m a big fan of vintage and thrift stores so when I saw the fabulous Vintage “Mom” mug featured on Etsy for Mother’s Day I HAD to write Bohemian Seed to see if they’d contribute it to our giveaway.  It was so cute and kitschy, and I hope that it’s found an appreciative new owner in Shari.

Even though Bohemian Seed had that really cool mug (and some other super cute vintage house decor items).  We’re sorta in love with the summer vintage clothes she’s got up right now!  We put together a rockin’ vintage bathing suit ensemble from her items – check it out:

Use this cool 70s see threw mini dress as a cover up over a white bathing suit! So retro!

Pair the cover-up with a cute crochet bag for your cell phone and sunscreen at the pool side.

Don these awesome aviator glasses to protect your eyes from the bright sunshine.

Finish off your look with these silver and gold vintage flats

Want this summer outfit?  Well you’re in luck because Bohemian Seed is having a summer sale right now and if you enter the code SUMMERSALE10  at checkout you will get 10% off your purchase.  So go get your vintage looks for summer!
