Mini-models and a Hill of Mums

Hello friends....just came back from a fun weekend with my friend Roberta. Roberta has three gorgeous granddaughters and the twins happily agreed to model a few of my felted sweaters. Ok...I had to bribe them with pretty little zippered pouches, but they really worked it on the runway  ;-)
 What a difference it makes to photograph them on a real little girl instead of a hanger. This was actually the very first time I have seen some of these on real children. I fell in love all over again!
                         Little Olivia and Sofia are a size 5T and my sweaters fit them beautifully.

    They looks so darn cute
                        The twins said my sweaters were soft and warm, which made me smile  ;-)
While there Roberta took me to Ott's Nursery where they had a mountain of gorgeous mums on their yearly display.
Pick a color!

Beautiful
These are my favorites...I love the little spoon at the end of each petal.
I loved the stems on these pumpkins
And ..Yes..... Autumn  has come to Pennsylvania.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.

Janet - love the models and the sweaters. Absolutely beautiful - both. What a great 'mum' nursery to visit. When we lived in NJ, we used to take a ride to upstate NY where there was a old decrepit nursery on the honor system. They had 100's of blooming plants (all on an elaborate drip system)and you literally helped yourself and left the money in the cash box. We did that for 4 or 5 years and never saw a human being in all that time.

Hugs - Marie

I can see why you fell in love with the sweaters all over again. They're just perfect for lttle girls!! And I think your little friends are just adorable and worth a pouch or 2! I want to go see the mum hill!!!!

So gorgeous Janet! I think the children (and their clothes) are even more beautiful than the mums! And you know how I love flowers...but kids, they're the best of the best. Wonderful models!

Hey Janet, lovely post and photos. Cute little models, they look snuggly and warm in their sweaters.
Loooove the flowers, particularly the one with the little 'spoon' petals. I could find room in my garden for a few specimens. Did you buy any?
Your irises must be spectacular too, what do you do with them when you divide them? Never realised they had a perfume.
Blue skies and sunshine here today, enjoy your week and thanks so much for visiting.

So adorable! I especially love the red one with the yellow ruffle. The mum display blws my mind, I want one (or more) of every color!
