Meet Francoise…a wonderful lady who designs unique children’s clothing and adds her own touch to each of her handmade pieces!  I have ordered from Francoise many times over the years, and I wanted to share her fun, beautiful, stylish designs with you.  Although Francoise is from France, she moved to the Atlanta area in recent years!  Francoise ships internationally, has a shop full of clothing, and will also create customized clothing at your request.  See below for links to her shop!

From dressy to casual, Francoise designs so many cute dresses for girls!  I love the corduroy and lace shown above, and I am crazy about the little french dress in the photo below!

And, there is even a design for your daughter’s favorite doll!

For the holidays, Francoise has many designs that are suited for a variety of ages~ from ruffly pink gingerbread designs…

…to traditional reds and greens.

Francoise also designs cute little outfits that work for school or a day out with friends and family.  These outfits are comfortable and fun for the children to wear while being show-stoppers at the same time!

The layered, ruffled skirts by Francoise (shown above) twirl perfectly and can be designed with so many different fabric choices along with embroidery and/or appliques.  And, there are also dresses and brother-sister outfits available!

Hedgehogs are always a favorite!  Look at the detail on the sleeves of the dress…

Another signature sleeve in Francoise’s designs~ bell sleeves!  This little dress is lovely for Valentine fun~

I also love the spring collections that Francoise offers~ prints, solids, florals, and a mix of each make up the designs that you will find!  There is definitely a little something for everyone!

And, as summer rolls around, Francoise has you covered!

Francoise’s GOLDFISH DRESS and LEGGINGS have always been eye-catching!

My daughter wore this dress when she was 4, 5, and 6 years old.  She LOVED it, and we got that many years out of it!  All of her friends loved seeing the goldfish in the “bowl” and they would take them out and play with them.  It was her favorite for a long time~

 Francoise also makes a version for the younger set!  Adorable!


Talk about having fun with your clothes!  Francoise makes getting dressed fun for the child and easy for the parents!  To see so many more of Francoise’s designs, be sure to visit her website, Etsy shop, and Facebook!  She often posts discounts on her FB page!  In fact, you can receive 10% off your purchase through Monday, November 26, 2012!  Enjoy!

There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”. 


Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child! 


What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!
