What a lovely ode to your sister. And what a lovely gift.
Happy Tuesday, my friend!


My sister is the same way...and you know what...the other day I heard her saying the same thing about me????

what a lovely tribute to her for her birthday...and lovely gift :o)

happy birthday to sister!



Love your sister stories...I've got 3 sisters and can relate (and I'm the one that got the make-something-from-trash gene). Your color combos on the pj set are really, really pretty.


Wow! Those pjs are beautiful!

How wonderful you two have each other and those memories!

Happy Birthday Miss Fashonista!

Here's to a good year!
xoxo, Katie


Ha! I thought I was the only one who made my sister do too-hard worksheets when playing School... no permanent damage done, right? Love the pj's.


*sigh* I always wanted a sister...Y'all are lucky to have each other :)


What a beautiful post. You made me miss my sister (who also celebrated a birthday this week!).


Beautiful. Photos, pyjamas and sentiments.


Oh, Chris. That is SUPER cute. (And such a lovely tribute to your sister.)

These are such pretty PJs. What a good gift for a sister. I miss having my sister nearby, too.

Happy birthday to your sis!

Ok. So your sister is like my sister and you and I are alike. :) That makes me happy, I don't know about you though.
I'm really amazed by what you can do with sheets, pillowcases and a sewing machine.
Happy Birthday to your sister!



Wow this is such a sweet entry! You're really very sweet, Chris! I'd love to meet your sister! And I'd really love to meet you!! One day...one day...

My brother and I used to clink our glasses too! And whenever we did that, half the contents would spill out. So my mom made sure our glasses were only half-filled when we clinked them. Good times :)

Cheers! *clink*


CUTE jams! aren't sisters the best? i'm sure your sister knows so! thanks for sharing!


Gorgeous gift, sounds like you and your sister are very lucky to have each other.

you're a great sister! what a nice gift ;)


I love those PJs! My sister and I are almost 16 years apart so I didn't have that kind of relationship with her...I had it with her kids. I'm 6 years older than her son, and 7 years and 12 years older than her daughters. I remember telling her older daughter how bad she was so she would cry so I could hug her...I know. I know. but she loves me anyway. :O)


These are beautiful jammies. Wow! I really love what you wrote about your sister and you, it makes me miss my brothers. :)

Belated Happy Birthday wishes to your sister! That was a touching sister tribute indeed!! I love the pj's. Did sister? If she didn't, give her more worksheets. ;)

Oh my gosh!! I was just now able to read this post cuz I just got my internet hooked up this morning... Thank you so much sis! I was laughing and crying at the same time. The pj's are on the minute I get home from work and reluctantly taken off in the morning. I LOVE them! You are wonderful and I am so lucky to have you as a sister!! Love you sweetie!



(and also, excellent sewin'. you and your trash gene. girl!)

I love everything about this post. Gorgeous photos. The very first skirt I made myself after learning to sew last year was made from a sheet identical to the pillowcase you used for the cami. I love it as a pajama top. Now I'm wondering if I have any more left around here somewhere... :-)

Oh, and I identify with so much of what you said - being an older sister myself. Such fun to torment the younger sister in subtle ways, and yet so nice to have her around.


Those are awesome. hmmm.... You could sell those.
