It has been 2 years, 5 months and 18 days since we packed up a motorhome with the 3 girls, 2 dogs, a huge tub of homemade cookies and an ache in my gut and left Oregon for Minnesota.
You would think that would be enough time to completely unpack, thoroughly decorate, erase any longing for home and acclimate to the frozen tundra. I've yet to do one of those things. I still have decorations sitting on my bedroom floor where they have been since the day we got here. I still have bins and boxes yet to be unpacked. I can't get used to this cold and my heart is still unsettled.
The other day I was going through a bin in my sewing room and I came across some "original" Lollibags, the Lollibags Lauren and I first made back in 2005-2008. We had the craziest fabric combos, but it was oh so much fun making them. I've listed 3 of them in my Etsy Shop. I'm so thankful we jumped into Lollibags, went on girls trips to find vintage fabrics, and just freely created. Good memories with my daughter.
Here are a few pictures of some of the originals....
We found these vintage fabrics at a thrift shop. I know it's a crazy combination but I love it! Lauren made this one. I'll have to ask her what happened to this bag.
Oh my goodness, look how little the girlies were! Portia is almost 12 now and Sophie is 6. Boy I sure do love that bag Portia has on. I must have sold it at the Sunday Market.
It is so easy to blow a couple hours looking at old photos. But I must get back to sewing and finishing up a scarf I am making. Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm wherever you are! I think our high on Saturday will be in the negative......sigh
