Dear Olive,
Whatever you do when you grow up, don't be broke. It's a complete bore, I can assure you. I'm working a couple of days this week, which is a good thing. What with Christmas and presents and new black sandals in my sights and all. Broke or not, I couldn't go past these sweet little cheapies I saw at this etsy store.

LOVE that grow chart! Problem with those is - do you really need the reminder that they're growing up too quickly?? :)

Love the sandals, too. I buy a pair of Gorman sandals every year - although this year I was also broke - so my sister came to my rescue!

Have to say those sandals look a rip off!! Look closely and see the shoddy workmanship!!!

Sweetest Etsy finds. And love those sandals Kellie. There are so so many cool sandals around at the moment. Unfortunately they're not so practical in the snow : ( Have fun working. xx

Hi Kellie, I'm a new discoverer/reader/stalker of your blog.

Love your etsy finds.

I had a growth chart just pretty much identical to that one when I was a kid. Don't you love how things we had as children are now 'vintage' ! Am hoping to heck my mum still has it put away (bit of a hoarder...) and think I may just need to call her later today to find out. My 22 month old needs one!

I'm so happy to see these cute pics on your blog and thank you so much for the link to my shop! Being broke certainly sucks, I sometimes think that it is what builds character, makes you creative and think outside the boundaries of what is average though (??!). Hope you're having a great day :)

Sorry to stalk Kellie but those pants are from a Swedish shop called Polarn O Pyret. We stumbled upon them in Stockholm. Let me know if you want me to hunt down a pair for Olive. xx

If we didn't buy those little cheap things occasionally, we'd probably crumble.
It's okay--things change. We've had better times and we've had worse times...

Lets face it ... being broke sucks
We have had many a day with no money in the bank. Luckily for us the kids think toasted sandwiches for dinner is a fun treat!

Hope Santa brings you those sandals - I think they are ace!

Gorman appears to be the thang at the moment. I like their two-toned sandals too! Love the growth chart!!
