Welcome to Small Style! I am very excited to have my first Small Style guest poster, Melissa. Her enthusiasm for guest posting won me over, not to mention her beautiful daughter, Azriel. Melissa has an eye for beauty (and a beautiful family!). You definitely need to check out her blog!
Thank you so much for guest posting this week, Melissa! And, thank you to all of you for visiting and joining in with our 17th week of Small Style!
Hi there, I'm Melissa of Needle and Nest Design. It's an honour and delight for me to 'showcase' our little sweetheart here on Mama Loves Papa. I've loved how her Small Style posts have linked me up with so many other wonderful and inspiring blog mamas out there.
Our daughter Azriel Ruth was born Oct.29.2009. We named her Azriel based on it's Hebrew meaning - "The Lord is my helper". We desire for her to hold to God as the anchor in the midst of life's tosses and turns. We picked Ruth for her middle name since we have a few great people in our life with that name, and it means "companion/friend" as well. I'm still not sure where these one and a half years have disappeared to - but it's been a beautiful, messy, blur.
Azriel's outfit is almost completely gifted from my Mom. You know how it goes... the first grandbaby gets all the eager shoppings of Grandma. Hat, sweater, shirt, pants - all thrifted by Grandma. I snagged the lil' croc shoes at a Mom-to-Mom sale for $2. A colourful combo for a day at the lake.
Azi is my main muse for a lot of my own sewing now too. You can follow on my blog as I parade her around the neighbourhood in some outfit I upcycled from an old shirt!
Thanks so much for taking the time to sneak a peek into our nest.
