Grey Dotty Shoes

What is an Auntie to DO when TWIN nieces are born?
Pish. That's an easy one. Sew some shoes of course. They are G-I-R-L-S!
A girl's got to have some darling shoes in her wardrobe.
I'm starting these girls on the wayward fashion path...fast. Three days old and they had these bad boys in their closet. Everyone else can buy them the cute, cuddly and far more practical soft sleepers. This Auntie doesn't roll that way.
Success.
I wrapped them up with a darling little thing-a-ma-jig of vintagey goodness that I will show you in a tutorial this week. Guess you'll have to wait for that. I actually have to write the post.
I know...you hate me because of the suspense. I'm still not writing that post yet. Today I feel like "Miss Laziness". Deal.
I have no idea what to call these shoes. I can't call them the Zoe or the Molly because that would be favoritism. And if I have a favorite, you'll never know. So for now...the Grey Dotty Shoes.
However, I am going to write "grey" in the far more trendy way. No boring "gray" for me. I'm a cool, trendy Aunt like that.
Unashamed plug: If you want to be cool trendy too, you can buy them HERE in my shop. (plug over)
Here are the babes just after their bath. I gave Molly her bath and changed her poo diaper and for that I was definitely NOT on her fave Auntie list for the afternoon. She'll get over it. I gave her cool grey shoes. I love how babies look like little old men the first couple weeks. Full of wrinkly, smooshy goodness. They smelled good too after that bath and their hair went all poofy on us.
However, after that rousing bath, they were conked out. We nestled them together and I attempted to get some pictures in a pretty dark house and the light was not so great. However, I did manage to capture this one. I know you think I totally posed it.
Did not. I swear it.
Picture time was over, I was putting my camera away and we noticed Molly had reached over and grabbed Zoe's hand.
Oh Golly!
Be still my trendy, beating Auntie's heart.

  1. OH.MY.GOODNESS. Those babies are precious!!! If I were their aunt I'd have a hard time leaving.

    Maybe you could call the shoes "zomo" or some other kind of combo??? I'm horrible at coming up with names, so I'll leave that up to you! They're cute too!
