Tales From Christmas Past: Oh Deer Me

Christmas is lonnnnng gone, but I’ve got a to-be-blogged backlog of 2018 makes a mile long.  I may lose steam on showing you all of them (but I’m hoping to share at least one a month on Throwback Thursday!), but I couldn’t not blog the holiday clothes I made for us last year…they’re just too cute.


First up, these deer, buffalo plaid and floral wonders!  These fulfill #1 and #4 of my End of Year Plans! Continue reading “Tales From Christmas Past: Oh Deer Me”
