one old shirt

in a new way!

This was my "go to" shirt for Renn last Fall (look how little he was). I loved it because it was fallish without being overly cutesy. When I went to gather up the clothes he had outgrown I just couldn't hand this one down. So, I kept it not knowing exactly what I would do with it. THEN it hit me! Matching shirts for the kids. 

They turned out pretty cute. I can't wait to have them worn at a pumpkin patch. Excuse the iphone pictures. 

As excited as I was about the shirts I still wasn't able to let go of the scraps soooooo...I decided to add them to a wreath!
A Fall wreath for the front door. There are so many wreath ideas out there that I "heart" but I needed something super simple so I added a few strips of the shirt to this grapevine wreath I already had and added a "B" I had painted to be on the rustic side of life. 

I am thrilled to have this shirt living on in new ways this Fall at the Bailey home.

What an awesome idea. Wish I had thought to save my favorite dress shirt of my son's when he was younger. Came over from Tatertots and Jello. Happy weekend.
