What Ava Wore : The Handmade Sweater

Not sure if I've mentioned it here before, but my mother? Multi-talented.
She knits. Crochets. Sews. Bakes. Cooks. All like no one's business.
Oh, and she's 80. 
She made this little cardigan for Isabella many years ago.
I can't tell you how glad I am that I kept it.
It's funny how you do that. And then have another baby. 

Shirt Baby Gap
Hand Knit Cardigan made by mama
Skirt Baby Mexx
 Linking up with Morgan and all the other cuties for Small Style. 
So excited to find out that Ava was the featured "small styler" last week! Thanks Megan!

  1. Why wouldn't she be featured? She is stunning every week, that baby of yours.:) I love that your mom made that beautiful sweater - and that skirt is the cutest!

  2. Good morning...
    OMYGOSH!! Ava looks absolutely adorable... how precious is that sweater!! It's amazing all the things our mother's did and continue to do ~ that we just can't seem to find time or the talent to do.

    Congrats Miss Ava on being featured.

    hope the sun is shinning in your area... it's brrrrr...cold outside but seeing the sun out is great.

    Wishing a fabulous day!!! xo C. (HHL)

  5. the cardigan is so pretty and look so good on Ava. you should keep that one for future generation. just saying :)

  6. Oh! What a sweetie! And what a sweater. That's about sweater perfection if I ever saw it. Almost enough to give me winter envy. Almost.

  7. Awwwdorable for sure! Handmade is the best isn't it.. especially when you know it was knit with love, and wraps her in a big warm hug of it all day! Now.. is she colour coordinated with her bedroom?? Too cute! lol.
