In January, I shared the Doll Suitcase I made LM for Christmas. I am sure this is how a lot of you found me since it continues to be one of my most popular posts. Later in the year, I shared the full tutorial on Prudent Baby. We also got a new cat, and I needed some silly.
In February, I shared an easy triangle pocket tutorial and pattern, did my first guest post ever for VHVT mama series, and we finally finished the dresser redo for the nursery.
In March I made a trio of doily clouds, ended the documentation of my baby bump, and the best part of the whole year - we became a family of four! I also shared my experience giving birth naturally and pain-free.
In April I adjusted to being a mama of two, LM dropped her nap so I found a creative way to keep her occupied, and I started Little Vintage Style.
In May I was tricked by a two-year-old, I appreciated my role as a mother even more, and refashioned a dress I thrifted that was 'meh' but had potential.
In June, we blessed Lark, enjoyed our summer with shoes and without, and I turned 28 and realized there was nothing more I wanted or needed in life at that moment.
In July, we celebrated the Fourth in non-traditional colors, I fell in love with a little feather-print dress, and I wrote a long and detailed post on making your vintage last: fabric care.
In August, we enjoyed family date nights and lazy sunday afternoons, LM turned three and we threw her a puppet shadow birthday party, I finally finished the girl's room and gave a full nursery tour, and was amused to find LM sleeping in odd places.
In September, I melted, revealed my secret to leaving the thrift without unwanted toys, LM conceptualized and helped make her first sewing project, I made 1920's felt cloches, and shared a peek into our favorite summer haunt.
In October, there were lots of pretty vintage frocks getting soaked, Lark was almost crawling, I was honored to join Ohdeedoh's Big Blog Family, and we had a darling butterfly and a cute caterpillar on Halloween.
In November, we had our family of four pictures taken, I had so much to be thankful for, the blog and shop got a new look that I LOVE, and we enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving with family.
In December, I gave an update on LM's dance class, then I disappeared for awhile, Lark turned 9 months old and slaps people in the face, and I decided to end LVS with the closing of the year and our Christmas. Which was pretty great.
I know that was really long, but what a year! So many good memories in 2011. I also wanted to give a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who supported my shop this past year. It means the world to me.
Goodbye 2011, hello 2012!
