Tangled Up in Littles

What could be more irresistible than lines strung with vintage linens?

Oh, I'll tell you what.

I am officially wrapped around this guy's little fingers.

That's right - all 10 of 'em.

And that's no easy feat, considering I was wrapped around 20 to begin with.

It's no wonder I don't get as much done as I would like.

Some Mamas say they'd like an extra set of hands...

I'd just like to free up my own, personal fingers.

But, on second thought...they do seem pretty happy, all wrapped up and about.



*I'm sharing this today at Chatting at the Sky's Tuesdays Unwrapped.

  7. He is so CUTE - but that runs in your family. From the look on his face, he really likes his new life. The Calvin/Ruby picture - what a crack up - Calvin carefully going under the wires and Ruby holding her breath and reaching out at the same time wondering if he is going to make it - priceless!

  13. I am sooo happy to have an entry full of Silas pictures. I could eat him up. I thought Ruby was the cat's meow but she may have some competition. Our curly hair connection will always keep her a special place in my heart.

  20. I think he needs to be rubbed down in bbq sauce and eaten. He's so stinkin' cute Shanny! I couldn't get anything done either. Seeing your little posse makes me happy.

  22. Just dreamy... I love the pics of the older ones on the bike. My girls go into their own little land and come up with these scenarios using whatever is around them. Creativity... old fashioned style. I love it. Those kiddos of yours.... darling.
