Hello from Finn and Cleo


Note: I hope those who celebrated Mother’s Day yesterday had a wonderful day with their family and friends.  It was simply wonderful here yesterday and I enjoyed being with my family especially after missing a couple of past Mother’s Days due to my travels.  My family gifted me a beautiful garden bench which I will show on the blog once I have it situated under a dogwood tree where I spend time with my thoughts.

This wonderful boy above is a 1967 NP boy and his name is Finn.  Finn is the very best boy and today he is modeling a wonderful outfit handmade by the very talented Sharon Humphreys.


This handsome striped overall and cheery red shirt fit Finn perfectly. I love it!  His pup Fetch likes it too! The red leather sandals were made by Jean Jensen.

Notice the lovely detailing along Finn’s pocket.  Finn is happy to be outdoors though it is nearly 90 degrees Fahrenheit today.

Another pocket and beautiful fabric too.

A perfect length.  Thank you very much Auntie Sharon.

I wanted to take a close up photo of Finn which has always proven to be a challenge for me since Finn is a well loved boy and has a shiny complexion from many Mommy hugs and kisses over the years.  He is very patient though and allows open displays of motherly affection plus he stands still for many photos.

Another view of Finn. Below are three different Waterlogue images made from this photo. I thought you would enjoy seeing the different interpretations.

Next, please meet Cleo, a sweet toddler who has joined the family here.  She arrived a bit earlier than Mother’s Day but I am claiming her to be a Mother’s Day present.

I redressed her in this dear little floral dress by Ginny.  She is holding her now favorite bear gifted to her upon her arrival.

Cleo is my one and only toddler now and I am happy she is here.

Hello dear Cleo. Welcome to Sasha Shangri-La.

Finn, Fetch, Cleo and I want to thank you for visiting with us today. We hope you enjoyed this post.  We are sending you hugs and happy wishes for a wonderful week to come. xxx
