Freshly Picked Review + Giveaway!

Hello friends,

You may have heard of Freshly Picked Moccasins. They are adorning the cutest feet all over. I was so excited to be able to review a pair of these moccasins for Ada. And I am happy to report, they are worth the hype!

I ordered her moccasins in platinum, thinking versatility! They go with everything. There are so many color choices, if you are looking for something gender neutral, or boyish, or girly, you will be able to find the perfect color to fit your little.

See! I told you! Adorable.

The moccasins came in a sweet little shoe bag, perfect for keeping them in after Ada outgrows them. One of my favorite things about these moccs is they actually stay on feet! When Lylah was younger, I tried every shoe possible, with no luck. She could get anything off. The leather is so soft, and the sizing on the website was easy peasy. Ada is a 2, tiny little toes!

If you aren’t familiar with how Freshly Picked was started, please read Susan’s story here. It’s such an inspiring story, especially to this small business owner.

Ada Lou is not quite walking yet, but I know what will be on her feet when she does start. I’ll admit, I’m hooked. The most adorable shoe ever!

If you would like a pair of moccasins for your baby, please head over to my instagram account for details on how to win a pair of these adorable shoes AND a baby bonnet from yours truly. Sweetness from head to toe!

Lots of exciting thing happening around here.  I am busy as a bee getting ready for summer shows, and I am so excited to be rolling out new products as well!  Here is my new boys bonnet, available in my shop.  The fabric I found for this is to die for.  It is a linen, and colors are even sweeter in person.

This means I am working ahead towards Fall/Winter bonnets. Seems odd when it’s 80 degrees out, with fall off in the long distance. We haven’t even hit the pool yet, but I am ready for fall. Summer is great, but there is nothing better than a cool crisp fall day! Until then, I’ll be knitting away.

Cleaning up around here and shop update

It’s been a while since I have made an actual blog post.  I have been focusing most of my attention to Instagram, because lets face it, a picture with a few words underneath it is much easier when you are chasing a baby and toddler around.  Ada is about to reach into her fourth quarter of life, and I think it’s time to get back into the action!

So, a little refresher on this site was my first order of action, and let me tell you, it was not easy.  But, a few headaches later, I am here.  I have been updating my shop on Etsy and moving forward I will be only using organic knit fabrics designed by yours truly.  I’ve been dabbling in fabric design a little bit, and although a little intimidating, it is so much fun!

I will also be adding some new patterns above, so stay tuned for those.  See you back here soon!
