I wanted to see if I could make a short-sleeved version of the Charlie tunic (which is at the top of My List right now, really want to get this out there before Spring Tops take over my life next week). I honestly wondered if it would look alright with short sleeves or just be kind of weird. You can be the judge I suppose but I think this is pretty fantastic. I love the retroish look of the sleeve facings and this froggy print is really really cute (Rachel of Retrolabs brought this to last summers’ Weekend…
Just found this picture from last summer on the computer and thought I’d throw it at the blog. Clementine is pointing at the screen right now and saying “Bee-Bee!” Oh man, she just screamed and now I have officially lost hearing in one ear. I have two minutes here before Elliot finishes his waffle and then it’s on with our day.

The good news is that there will still be plenty of sunshine yet this spring and summer! Woohoo!
