[It's a jolly holiday...]

Little girls have dresses. Little boys have vintage (or at least that's how it plays out in my mind). I love having little boys but I can't deny wishing for dresses and dollies every now and then. Well, after dressing up my little dandies in the most adorable vintage attire, found at heart and sew, my throat swelled up and I got all mushy and mommy like. Jon thought the boys were adorable too and proceeded to tell Little A how handsome he was. Little A quickly retorted "NO! I"m not handsome! I'm like Mary Poppins!" The little guy had a point. He did indeed look just like Bert on Mary Poppins.
So of course we needed to have a little photo shoot and Spidey came along for the fun.
It's fitting that Little A brought Mary Poppins up because I've been crazy about the wardrobe and nursery styling of Jane and Michael Banks for as long as I can remember. I have a secret dream of living in a brown stone in London similar to that of the Banks or the Darlings (and one day flying off with an umbrella to Neverland). (I also want to live in a modern industrial renovated barn...so I'm a bit bipolar when it comes to dreaming).
I did forget that vintage runs a lot smaller than sizes today so I think the boys will grow out of these very quickly...but I'm enjoying them while they fit (barely).


  1. Adorable! I understand the bi-polar bit about house dreams, I feel the same way.

  2. gorgeous.
    just beautiful.
    love their outfits.
    {if you are interested in selling them after they grow out of them, i'd love to buy them from you.}
    i have three boys myself (no girlie dresses for me either) and the youngest is 8 months and i'd love to dress him in these.
    love your blog so much!

  3. Those clothes are darling - and so are your boys! And I can relate to the seemingly conflicting house dreams... :)

  4. Oh My Gosh! They are so so cute.

    I miss you guys.

  5. Oh my soooo adorable!! I LOVE the vintage outfits! Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!

  6. I want to give them a sqeeze! So adorable.

  7. Oh my... They are absolutely adorable!! How cute are these vintage clothes! I just discovered your blog through a Creative Mint =)


  8. aww! these are just so adorable! especially the last one where it looks like little A is scratching his bottom! hehe. =)

  9. bert has always been a male style icon, in my opinion! gosh, he couldn't be cuter.

  10. First of all, I love your blog! Second of all.... you've given me hope! I secretly am scared then when it comes time to have my own children, I will have all boys and miss out on the vintage girliness (that consumes my own life!). Little boys can be cute in vintage clothes too! haha
    (although if my in-laws have anything to do with it, they would wear Ohio State apparrel 24-7)...

  11. Oh dear god....these are the sweetest outfits, the most adorable little ones and I just love it all! (and your beautiful invitations above...) You are so very talented my dear!

  12. Oh so cute - as a mother of two little boys I so get this!
