Howdy Fans +Readers~
Just 3 days left until we close our shop...
Wow! We are feeling the LOVE!  Thank you ALL for your sweet + supportive comments as we are heading into retirement {not really, just with making our lil' OH Fiddlesticks! line!}
We wanted to offer something special for YOU, our beloved fans.  One last chance to snag a tee that you had on your wish list for your little one.  Was it a 'Max' inspired tee?  A Disney Princess inspired tank? A bow tie and 'stache tee?  A birthday rosette corsage tank?  Now is your chance to grab one of these unique handmade items before we officially hang up our needles and close our shop on September 15th.  We have re listed a handful of items...some are fan favorites, others have never been released in the shop.  They are listed at full price and will not be a sale item.  We still have a few closeout items remaining as well, including our fabric panels for a DIY cowboy or limelight tee!  

We also wanted to let y'all know our production time is running 2-3 weeks for ALL sale items and 3-5 weeks for all orders received in the next 3 days.  Thank YOU again for your amazing support.  WE are forever grateful...

Lots of LOVE~

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you've imagined." Thoreau couldn't have said it any better.  Yup, this is what we have decided to do.  We are moving forward in the direction of our dreams.  We are ecstatic about where we are headed, so many new adventures await us.   That has lead us to a very difficult decision.  We have decided to close our Etsy shop indefinitely.   It has been a wild, handmade ride folks.  Wow!  What an adventure it's been the past 3+ years.  We have had the privilege to accomplish way more than we EVER dreamed was possible with our little biz. 

WE cannot thank Y'All enough.  OUR fans, friends, family, + customers are simply the best.  WE treasure each shirt we had the honor to make for a birthday, photo shoot, colloboration, special occasion.  All of the relationships made via Oh Fiddlesticks! are treasured.  We hope y'all continue to folow us via instagram as we take this year to explore, and live simply as 2 creative momma's + friends.  

You can find me, Melissa on Instagram as melabdine.  I will be posting photos of my girls,  my adventures in photography, travel, crafting, headstands, running {I am training for a 10k and tri later this spring} as well as yoga teacher training.  I hope to launch a new creative blog this fall and will keep y'all posted on where you can find me...

You can find Jen on Instagram as jenilizi.  She will be posting photos of her girls, her adventures in photograpy, muraling, painting, crafting, treasure hunting for her new digs in Austin, and biking around town...


Thank you  again for ALL of your LOVE + support.  This biz has been a dream come true and we would not have been able to fulfill this dream without YOU.

Go forth and dream...


xxoo,

Customer LOVE {Big + Lil' Sis}...

Sisters...
Summer 2012

Oh how I LOVE making our vintage rosette corsage tanks for little girls.  It is one of my absolute favorite pieces.  I was tickled when Shannon of BellaSorella Couture asked me to make 2 for her girls {Did you notice big sis + lil' sis are hand stamped on the hearts on the back of the tanks?}  She sent me this photo collage of her darlings a few weeks ago and I just had to share.

If you haven't already checked out her amazing work, please do so here.

Thank you Shannon + girls for sharing these pictures.  We hope you continue to enjoy your tanks.  YOU gals are stunning...

 
xxoo,
Melissa

Happy Monday y'all...
Whoa baby! We have been so busy the past 2 weeks sewing up all our orders from our BIG sale.  Thanks again to all our readers + fans who supported this event.  We are so grateful! 

Now, we are able to take some deep breaths and enjoy the last few weeks of summer before our girls head back to school.  I cannot believe my Paisley is going to start Kinder.  Yikes...time is going so quickly.  And my baby girl Magnolia is turning 3 in just a few weeks.  I am starting to plan her party...can YOU guess what princess we are modeling our party after?  

Today I wanted to post a few pics my BFF took of one of her dear friends and her little newbie Mr. H.  Bff selected our limelight onesie for H as a gift and I was so thrilled to see him model it in this shoot.  I ADORE the styling + the emotion captured in these 2 images.  What fun to see it all come to life.  Bff is just starting her photography career and I am simply amazed at what she can do.  Next up we are going to plan a little shoot with my girls on her next visit to Austin.  I am already dreaming up a few ideas.  YOU can find more of Bff's work here.

If you have a baby gift for a little guy or a photo sesh planned~ our limelight tee is perfect!  I am offering the onesie/tee at 50% off today only.  Email me at: ohfiddlesticksaustin@gmail.com for the secret coupon code!  Hurry, hurry!  We only have a few left before they are sold out completely...

xxoo,
Melissa

Oh, Vacation We Adore YOU...

Saturday, July 7, 2012

 Paisley + Magnolia ready to hit the beach...
 Perfect way to start the day...
beach + bride Barbie + Starbucks!
 Daydreaming...

 Magnolia's favorite thing to make me 
were birthday sand cakes...


 I was sick for about 5 days of our vacay but still made it to the beach everyday
for that sand in my toes, wind in my hair, and priceless moments making sand castles with my girls...

Daddy taught the girls to dig for sand crabs then throw them on mommy...
Fun game for them, not so much for me!
 June~July 2012
San Clemente, California




 Our vacation is now over.  I am about to go wake up my girls to get dressed for the trip home.  Back to the heat and humidity we go.  So sad to leave after a month of frolicking around Hawaii and So Cal with our family + friends.   It's been dreamy.  But we are going home.  HOME is always a good place to go.  I feel like I have found a sense of freedom this month.  A LOT is changing in my life and it is about to get real once I am home and am able to start practicing what I have planned for this year.  My 36th year.  It's gonna be a good one...

May YOUR day be blessed wherever you are...

Homeward bound I go!

xxoo,
Melissa

p.s. thanks to all our fans + readers for the sweet birthday wishes.  Don't forget to shop with us tomorrow when we re open our 50% off birthday sale.  Just use code: birthdaylove at checkout!
