Sending this one on a airplane to Montreal tomorrow.
And after hustling hard to finish it I am spending the weekend in completely self indulgent sweater knitting. 🙊

I wonder how accurate this actually is?! I’m thinking pretty close... 💤💤💤

What have you been reading and loving lately? (Or long time favourites, too.)
.
So much of my inspiration comes from books (three of the Autumn 2018 collection are inspired by literary locations and if you’ve been around a while you’ll know which ones), so I’d love to know what YOU love. Bring on the recommendations! 🍂 📖

NEW STOCKIST!!
We are so excited to have our products stocked @henandchickstudios in Saskatoon! They carry so many adorable products, so be sure to visit their store!

You asked for our Karma Moon phase print on something OTHER than a crop... we listened. Our softest T yet. Exaggerated tail drop hem in the back for the perfect style with leggings, or easily tied at the side for summer fun ✌🏻 @cadestewart @kiaawnii 👌🏼 #karma

Took advantage of the great sale on merino roving at @pocoinspiredbeadstore ! Just what I needed to make the cutest little felted charms for these upcycled knitting needle bangles with matching earrings!! 😍😍

5️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ followers 💕💕💕💕💕
To celebrate this milestone I wanted you to get to know me better by sharing these 10 facts about me. Let me know if any of them surprised you in the comments! 😀
1️⃣ I was born and raised in Ukraine 🇺🇦 but spent most of my adulthood in Canada 🇨🇦 2️⃣ I love living here and call it home but really my home is where my family is 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦
3️⃣ I have two small children who are the light of my life ❤️⭐️❤️⭐️❤️
4️⃣ Married to my best friend and best co-parent ever 💞
5️⃣ I opened Baby Stardust Boutique almost exactly 1 year ago. What a great journey it’s been so far!
6️⃣ Baby Stardust is a reference to my most favorite movie of all time - The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life (2008) - the best movie about family relationships. It’ll make you laugh, cry, and will leave you feeling wistful and lighthearted at the same time.
7️⃣ Random fact - I am weirdly obsessed with stationery. Sometimes all I need to do to pull myself out of a strange mental place is buy a new pen.
8️⃣ I love driving 🚗
9️⃣ I also love singing when driving 🎤Beware if we go on a road trip together! 😁
1️⃣0️⃣ Besides tatting and crocheting I love doing makeup 💄 @lilies_and_lights is my other account for makeup looks.
I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me 😍

We’ve had a few summer thunderstorms in Calgary lately. The drama of dark clouds rolling in make me want to curl up with a good book and light a candle. 🌩️📖🕯️

Flower studs have been my main items since the beginning. Over the years I’ve added new styles and colours, like these carnations. Create your perfect bouquet at littlemouseontheprairie.ca for $10 a pair.

I know I don’t show myself much in our feed. I don’t really think my life is all that interesting to have anything significant to share. 🤷🏻‍♀️ And it feels wrong to say “I” and refer to myself since we’re so much more than just me. My husband and I started F&A together a few years ago, and we’ve since grown into a team that is 5-strong!
-
But inquiring minds have wanted to know more about who they follow/talk to, and I guess that would be me! Hi 👋 I’m Francesca, the resident florist and photographer at F&A. I’m quite shy, preferring to be the face behind the lens and not in front of it. Today is my birthday and it seemed like an opportune time to show/introduce myself, to capture who I am at an exact moment, at 36 years old.
-
At 36 (!!!) I am a little... er... curvier than I used to be, I have eye bags that are more prominent from sleep deprivation, and more white hair than I can keep up with removing. 😆 I live in the Durham Region with my husband, 2 kids, dog, 2 cats, fish, and plants. Our daughter has been bugging us for a bird to add, and the answer is an emphatic “NO WAY!!”. Our life is a wild circus and we are winging it daily. But we somehow keep the kids healthy, fed, and clothed and keep the pets and the plants alive, so I figure we’ve got to be doing something right!
-
This is my 2nd career, having found my passion for flowers quite late. I probably appreciate it more than I would have for this reason. I’ve hated enough jobs to know that I’ve found the proverbial “one”.
-
Being a mamapreneur is admittedly hard. It’s a tough career shift, trading a steady income for the unknown. But crazy as it sounds, having children gave me the courage to make the change. I wanted more meaning out of life and to be able to show my kids by example that you can - and should - pursue what you love. And while I know it’s not going to be an easy ride, I’m hoping that it will be as rewarding and as fulfilling I’ve dreamed it would be.
-
But many of you here already know what this life is like, so this doesn’t at all make me special or unique. What it does make me, though, is part of an amazing community of parents who hustle, and for that I couldn’t be prouder 💕

Crazy plant lady is the new crazy cat lady. And I think I’m turning into one of them thanks in part to our awesome friendor, @chezfleurca. I got this beauty from her a few weeks ago, and I love it so, so much. I can’t get enough of her plants. I’m addicted! I’ve got a hoya on reserve and I cannot wait to pick that baby up next week. 🌱#sorrynotsorry #callmecrazyplantlady

If you still think, that a Busy Board for a girl has to be pink, take a look at this one! Sophia’s parents chose this beautiful mint colour for their little girl, and look how pretty it turned out! The picture really doesn’t do it justice! We hope that Sophia will enjoy playing with her new Busy Board! .

What do we do when it gets too thick too fast? Plop in the mold and swirl 🙄. Avobath type FO. Design fail...
