And what a lovely baby you were and are. I was a 17-year-old mom too, and that son is now closing in on 40, a pure delight to me every day.

I'm late to find your blog--and I'll be stopping by your shop. Who knew someone actually makes and sells one-of-a-kind clothes any more?

A late happy birthday to you!
