a package from japan, via atlanta

My Mom came over Monday and we loaded up the two birdies and took a trip to the zoo.  When we got back, there was a package in the mail for the girlie bird from my cousin Meredith.  Meredith lives in Atlanta, and the last time she was in town visiting she mentioned that she and her brother Patrick (also my cousin, duh!) had picked a little something up for the new little birdie when she was in Japan visiting. 

Patrick lives and works in Japan.  You can read all about it on his blog, which he doesn't update very often, but when he does it's super interesting. :)


I tore into the package and this is what I pulled out:

What a sweet little baby kimono!!!  How thoughtful of them!

Look at these exquisite details:

The sewing part of me is nuts over this decorative stitching

And I love the little pleats on the arms

I'm seriously thinking about framing this when she outgrows it.  It's really a keepsake as well as something to wear.

She looks cute in it too.

I've always really loved Asian inspired clothing and decor, so this is really the perfect gift.  Thanks Patrick and Meredith!

Ooops..had to edit my comment. How adorable! Love the pic of baby bird and your mom. So cute. And I totally think you should shadowbox it when she outgrows it and hang it in her nursery
