Today is my youngest niece Lily’s birthday.  This sweet little girl has just about every toy you can imagine so when birthday time rolls around, its time for Auntie Vicki to get creative….

A few months ago she picked up some salt and pepper shakers and named them The Duke and The Duchess.  So, I thought that I should start her on a vintage "Duke and Duchess" collection and of course a small cabinet to store them in.

And I found this pattern and thought I’d make her some slippers too.  However, I threw them into my front loader at 190 degrees as I headed to bed and left the washer to do its magic.  My washer is way more magical than I predicted and I’ve spent all morning jamming my fists into those slippers to try and make them big enough for her!  I used wooden spoons, spatulas and even TV remotes to try and stretch them out.  We’ll see if it works…if not, I guess I’ll be making her another pair….

Doug just got home with styrofoam eggs for Riley and I to needle felt (loving that!  who knew how fun stabbing wool with an extremely sharp needle could be!!!!)
