future ball player

Such a handsome little guy, with his chubby cheeks and curly hair, and he was so easy to work with, too! He slept well enough that I was able to try out my new Bella Patina basket. If you’re looking for vintage items with a modern twist, stop in at Bella Patina in downtown Kalamazoo- I spend lots of time drooling over their re-purposed, stylish and handcrafted selections.  The flower is upcycled from an old baseball, and his dad was a superstar baseball player, so it was a match made in heaven. We were able to add his dad’s home run-hitting bat for an even more personal touch.


I never get tired of seeing new babies in their daddies’ hands.  I love seeing how truly tiny they are-
