Featured Etsy Shop: Casanees

Plaid suspenders by Casanees

Remember these adorable suspenders on Jax last Friday from Casanees?  We’re in love with them!  I actually think we’re debating having Jax wear them for my wedding in August (we’re doing a camping wedding with florals for girls and plaids for the boys! Well we’ll see it’s actually planned as an “eclectic” wedding so I picture things getting thrown in last minute).  Her stuff is perfect for weddings because she can custom make any of her patterns (hats, suspenders, dresses, and ties) for your ring bearers and flower girls.

She has the cutest ties (and bowties as well) that you can coordinate for your events or family photos!

Cassandra is so talented and hilarious to boot!  When we asked her what type of personal information we could include about her in this post she said,  “basically, I’m Super Mom to my two little kidlets, a boy and a girl. Lately I play the part of Captain Hook, because the good guys are taken and they want a villain… ”  LOL.  I just fell in love with this response!  I can just imagine Cassandra whipping up Peter Pan and Tinkerbell costumes for her kids as well as beautiful (matching) clothes sets!  Like these from her store:

Perfect for family/kiddo photos!

Casandra tells us, “I LOVE sewing for my kids and creating what their imagination can dream up. Nothings better than having a unique item of clothing that no one else on the playground has!”  We’d have to agree and I think this cap is the next unique item we’ll have to purchase for Jax (after all summer is coming and in that Arizona sun we’re going to have to keep him covered!):

Newsboy cap – so cute!

So if you want a unique item for your kiddos too (or for your wedding!)  hope on over to Casanees and support handmade!


Wednesday Wants: Easter baskets for Boys and Girls

It was one of those lazy spring days around the panda base today with the scent of freshly cut grass and cherry blossoms – it occurred to me that spring is upon us and Easter is right around the corner!  This Wednesday I put together TWO treasuries!  As I was looking through all the cute Easter stuff on etsy I couldn’t help but make up a treasury for both boys and girls.

I LOVE everything that pitpatwaddlepat makes but her cute dresses are to die for!
