Hello! In case you may have wondered where I've been for the last several days, I was spending it with my husband's lovely family in snowy & beautiful Tahoe -- I even managed to get a day of snowboarding in, which has only happened a mere 3 times since Bean was born seven years ago. There was no internet access, which was ultimately a good thing as it meant that we were back to basics: reading, playing card games, eating (a lot!), playing, talking and just being! As difficult as it was to not fret about emails and my blog, it was a great sabbatical.
So, now that I'm back, I've been meaning to tell you about Unverblümt & Zugenäht for several weeks -- it's actually my cousin's wife's shop (confused?). Bettina lives in Germany and, unfortunately, I've never had the pleasure to meet her but have heard so many things about her hand-embroidered tee shirts via my mom. Our daughters' also share the same name, coincedentally, so I'm beginning to think I really need to make my way over to Germany and meet her. My mom recently sent me a link to Bettina's shop and I was so impressed with her designs and not only because we're "family" but because they're all genuinely adorable! Sadly, I'm not as fluent in German as I should be (with an Austrian mother and all) so I can't quite translate what she has written in her shop but, fortunately, the pictures speak for themselves.
