A Magazine Mention, The Lorelei Tutu and a Winner

A few days ago someone commented on our blog about seeing us mentioned in the newest issue of Romantic Country. I assumed they had just gotten us confused with someone else. Well, Monday night I took Lillie to the bookstore for a little bit and I flipped through a copy of the Fall issue of Romantic Country and was completely shocked and thrilled to see Dear Lillie mentioned on page 20! I was also excited to see Lu's gorgeous home featured in this issue and my lovely friends Anne and Kat is in it as well. Anyway, to say we are grateful and excited would be an understatement. I have to admit, though, I got credit for making the tutus (which my mom does) and the hats (which my sister, Dana does) but fortunately they were equally as excited to see Dear Lillie in a magazine and Lillie's photo so they didn't care! =)

On another note I have tried a couple of evenings now to photograph our newest tutu, The Lorelei, but still haven't gotten the shot I want. It will be available when we reopen our shop on September 1st. I love the soft, vintage look it has! It is ivory and has a pixie cut and is accented with a muted rose and lace ribbon. Here are a few photos of Lillie wearing it:

I tried to get some shots of both girls wearing it but didn't get any good ones.

Enough of this!

Lola was much happier snuggling with Mimi!

I am hoping I will get some shots that show the tutu a little bit better soon!

And now for the winner of out tutu giveaway:

CONGRATULATIONS! Send us an e-mail at letting us know if you would like the gray Lillabel Tutu or the Hot Pink one and your address and we will get it shipped on out to you!

Thank you all for entering. We have several more giveaways planned for the coming weeks!

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday. I will be back either tomorrow or Friday with the first of two tutorials from projects in Jamie's Great Room. I have all of the photos ready to go I just need to finish up the text.


  1. Congrats on the magazine shout out. Looks like they would ask for permission first, but I guess not. Love these pictures of the girls.

  2. I do not have any children but your photos always make me wish that 1) I had a little girl or 2) that my nieces were younger because they used to love wearing tutus. This one is beautiful. I love the fluffiness of it, and the vintage feel. Just lovely.

  14. Congratulations! Much deserved. How many copies did you buy? :)
    Happy Day! Hugs.

  15. I'm a fairly new follower but they are 2 of the most breathtaking little girls I have ever seen so I can understand why they popped up in a magazine. Weird though, I thought also they should've asked permission! Congratulations anyway:)

  21. Congratulation, that some one was me from My Cozy Casita the one let you know that your beautiful Lili was feature in the magazine.
    God bless you and your family

  22. Congrats on the magazine! It's well deserved! But I'm quite surprised {especially from a professional publication} that they didn't ask permission to use your photos or inform you that they were going to feature you.

  23. Just so you know, I don't think you can take a bad picture. ;)

  24. Congratulations on your feature in the magazine! You do beautiful work! And, your mom and sister! Both of your girls look precious in the new tutu! Your photos are always gorgeous. Mimi (your mom, right?) is a beautiful woman. Love the photo of Mimi and Lola snuggling. I'm looking forward to your shop opening in September.

  25. Yay!! I was so happy to see your site mentioned!:) Your photos of your girls are precious~ Hugs, Rachel
