sweet and refreshing

Darn. I forgot yesterday was Wedding Wednesday. Sorry. I might just post it later today or continue next week. Of late, I have been quite absentminded with so much going on and not enough brain to think about it all! Does that ever happen to anyone? Maybe, it's just me. Maybe, this baby is sucking all my brains for himself/herself... maybe. Nice thing is that my sisters are with me today and that means babysitters!!! I get to catch up and clean and do things that I have wanted/needed to do... I think I'll sew me a dress. Well, we will see how time goes. 

I have made a couple custom crowns this past week and here is just one of them. For a special Ruby who is going to turn 5 with a perfect, summery, watermelon themed party!

I found this crown so sweet and refreshing that I had to take a bite. Now, really, who can resist a cool, sweet watermelon in the summer? It is the perfect treat to help one cool off from the scorching sun. 

How is the weather where you are at? Has the summer heat already hit? It hasn't here and I am enjoying every bit of it. Though, we will be making our way to Texas in about a week, so I know I am gonna be in for a lot of heat. 


  1. That crown is adorable! :]

    I live in deep deep south Texas.. like the tip.. it's 100+ everyday. Being pregnant in this is horrible, but I'm due in October and the weather is about the same during the fall too.. gotta love Texas!! :]

  2. the crown is super super cute!
    i love the bite taken out of it:]

  3. We are in Missouri, just south of St. Louis and have been in heat advisory mode for 4 days now...It's only JUNE!!! I love the crown! Do you think you will post a tutorial, or do you have a pattern?? My baby girl (our 4th) turns 1 on Sept. 25th and I would love to make her a birthday crown! Thanks!

  4. oh so cute! i love the bite taken out of it!! perfect for summer!!

  5. super super cute!
    I am in texas and we are in the triple digits. too hot for me and I have lived here all my life. in the summers i wish i could move to colorado!

  6. LOVE IT! We are so excited to have Ruby wear it. Will send photos!


  7. Very cute crown indeed.

    NY/NJ area...cloudy and sometimes rainy....its hot but bearable.

    I don't have kids and my brain is about to be fried. I have alot on my mind also and can be quite forgetful so no you are not alone.

  8. this is so cute! i wish my little sister was still 5 and liked cute things. she's turning 11 and i want to throw her a birthday party, but she's more of a tomboy (she grew up playing with my younger brothers!)
    watermelon is my favorite and i can eat a whole one if i didn't have to share.
    it's pretty warm in toronto but i am loving it! summer=barbecues and evenings in the backyard :)
    have a good trip!

  9. Love the crown. We are in the depths of winter here in Sydney, though it's really not that cold in the scheme of things - we never even get snow here!

  10. The crown is so cute! I live in San Antonio and its so hot already but that makes a cold slice of watermelon taste even more delicious.
    p.s. I love your blog.

  11. What a gorgeous crown and being in the middle of winter here, it did make me pine for summer!

  12. there is such thing as Mama-Brain. The baby sucks up all your Omega 3 fatty acids. That's what your brain uses to function smoothly and think quickly. Take some supplements and it will make a WORLD of difference!

  13. Hi! Is there a tutorial somewhere on making these lovely crowns?
