I "liked" Shabby Apple and I am now following your blog. I LOVE those pictures! What a great idea for a one year old party with the headbands and mustache sticks!

My niece was just born and all I can think about are adorable girly things!! Those dresses on that site are so ridiculously cute!! Would love to win it for my little niece Alexandra.

I've been reading your blog (and adoring your photos!!) for ages. You have the most divine boys.

I've liked shabby apple on Facebook (and drooled over their beautiful little girls clothes), and am a follower of your blog too.

I think I might just have to thieve some of the ideas from Francesca's birthday party for my little man's first birthday next year - I'm determined that he won't miss out on the big hurrah like his sister got for her first birthday!

Corey Ann,

Francesca is so beautiful! She looks much like her older brother and cousin, Sebastian. {and they look like their gorgeous mothers!} What a sweet themed celebration. Love all the creative decor.
I finally got a face book page and liked Shabby Apple. I'm also a follower not a stalker. hehehe

Your Friend,
