The Bailey's

I have to tell you that I am slightly obsessed with Heather Bailey's new collection
Nicey Jane.

It has this amazing retro look.

In the most perfect color ways.

But, even better than Nicey Jane..
Elinor Peace Bailey
(Heather's Mother-in-law)

I was lucky enough to meet, and hug her at market.
She is an artist that I really admire.
*One reason is that she creates these beautiful dolls.
*Another-She is who she is, and she doesn't care what other people think about it!
*She is a strong woman!
There is something about Elinor Peace Bailey that reminds me of the picture of "Lola" that I have always had in my head. The Lola that I want to grow up to be. She has pink hair too!
Thanks Bailey ladies
for the inspiration!

Thanks for the comment on my blog, I am so glad that your little one liked the rocket!
I made a couple of smaller versions of it and my 3-year-old likes to play super rocket catch with it.

I think if I met her I would love Mama Baily too. Her dolls are so much fun! and the descriptions of each had me rolling in the floor. What a hoot!
