Pinwheel Girl by Petit Collage

June 15, 2010

When Lorena of Petit Collage found out what we’d named our baby, she sent out the sweetest gift. Apparently, when she was pregnant with her daughter Matilda, her name was going to be Flora, and Lorena created this artwork for her thank you cards. Matilda ended up with her Grandma’s name instead (I heart the name Matilda), but the name Flora and this print are still dear to Lorena’s heart and she wanted our Flora June to have it.

Isn’t that the loveliest thing ever? We adore the Pinwheel Girl print and think it will be perfect hanging near June’s crib.

P.S. — Can you believe how fast June is growing? Here she is at 4 weeks old. She was drowning in this pink romper just a few days before and now it fits perfectly. I’m so happy for a healthy growing baby. And so sad she won’t be tiny forever. Sigh.

She is truly the most content baby I’ve seen. Always so perfectly peaceful.

She’s SOO cute.
I am a bit confused – is her name June or Flora? Because on your sidebar it says her name is Flora, but you keep calling her June?

She is GORGEOUS! I love a healthy baby! The pinwheel art is darn cute too!

She is so gorgeous. I can’t believe I will have a teensy girl like June so soon!

Fantastic print!!

And those pictures of June make me grit my teeth almost to the point of breaking.

What a sweet little peanut! I’m missing a small baby all curled up next to me (youngest is 8 mos and crawling up a storm).

Polly, they named her Flora June but she will go by June.

She is a beauty, Gabrielle. My baby girl (15 months now) had a pink pajama very much like that one and those photos are making me very nostalgic.

Such a cute print – and an even cuter baby girl! She’s so sweet!

Oh, I thought I was done having babies….

Oh! She is so, so cute. Nothing like a sleeping baby!

This print has the same feeling as the ones over at Paper’s Edge . . . so simple and sweet. What a wonderful gift.

The pictures of June make me ache for mine to be small enough to fit in a romper again! I love the days of footie p.j.’s.

Sigh. . I have a daughter named June too. She’s almost 2.5 and just informed me that instead of going to bed she’d rather watch TV and eat crackers (um, I don’t think so). I can’t believe she was ever that small!

I was just now folding my 11 month old’s laundry (yes, I do it separately) and took in his own fresh laundry smell and I got sad for the time when he doesn’t get his own load of laundry and that smell is gone. I don’t know where this year has gone. Everyone says how fast it goes and they are RIGHT but I was too sleep deprived to believe them. I wouldn’t have it any other way (perhaps a little less fatigue…)

June is gorgeous and so sweet in her pink romper.

gosh how do you stop time right!!


17 Ayme June 15, 2010 at 8:35 pm

That picture of June sleeping is just precious. I love how they lay!


18 Robin June 15, 2010 at 8:44 pm

June is heartbreakingly sweet! Love the print, too.


19 elz June 15, 2010 at 9:37 pm

She is adorable. You realize you are making us all want newborn girls, right?!

Beautiful gift, I just love vintage prints and that one is just so precious!
As is baby June…so happy and content in her beautiful world…!

Oh Design Mom!! I saw the print of the redheaded girl holding a camera (that’s me!) months ago but didn’t know where it was from. When I saw the pinwheel girl on your blog today I knew it was the same artist. Mystery solved!! I’m going to order it! THANK YOU!!!

she is beautiful and that print is AMAZING! i love it.


24 mom in mendon June 16, 2010 at 10:06 am

We love beautiful June.


25 Jeanette from Everton Terrace June 16, 2010 at 10:19 am

A beautiful and thoughtful gift – just like your daughter. I’ve got the warm fuzzies!


26 Tanya June 16, 2010 at 7:09 pm

Where does the time go! She is getting cuter by the minute and making me baby hungry!


27 Bri June 17, 2010 at 4:15 pm

What a sweet gift and a lovely print. I think her leafy hair adorned with a little blossom is the perfect representation of a little girl named Flora.


28 Melissa Edwards June 18, 2010 at 9:48 am

That print is darling. And she is so precious- I so miss that new baby smell!

So cute! I’ve been gone and missed reading your blog. I have a lot of catching up to do.
