"Jollifiers are sentimental things that spread a little joy every time you cast your eye upon them. 

They are among the easiest decorating tools, as they require no skill, no complicated understanding of color, texture, or composition...

I find polka dots very jolly. Anything spotted is slightly silly and friendly.

Every home needs something a little surprising to lift it out of the mundane."

Arianna Mae

I've been wanting to do a photo shoot with my girlie for quite some time now. She is growing and changing so quickly and I find myself already looking back at pictures, so thankful for each little face and emotion captured! But I kept putting it off and making other things higher priority, until I was talking to a friend who encouraged me to soak up these last days with Arianna as an only child. That reminder was both timely and inspiring! And these images are the results… {smile}

"patty cake, patty cake, baker's man…"

 And lest you think we have this whole photo shoot thing down pat and that my daughter cooperates like she's been on pinterest herself, or something, know that in between these captured moments I was busy wiping her nose and refilling a small bowl of raisins hidden in the baby cradle!

{oh, I love this little face!}
