Friday's Finds

Well I don't know about y'all but I've just about had it with it still being Winter.
Recently I've been cleaning out cupboards, closets and going through Summer clothes that my kids wore last year. Both Grace and Will have had huge growth spurts. Will cannot fit into any of his last year's Summer clothes. He's gone from a size 2t last year, briefly stayed in a 3T this Fall and Winter and I'm buying him 4T for Spring/Summer. Grace can fit into some things, but not nearly as many as I thought she could.
I've been getting ready for Spring/Summer for them. I'm sending a large box of outgrown clothes to Will's foster home in China
and it feels great to help the family and children we've come to know and love.
Anyway, today's Friday's Finds are some of my recent purchases for Spring/Summer for Grace and William.

Yesterday I bought both of these adorable pairs of shoes at Target for Will.

The above little brown canvas sneakers, you can find here.

And the above 'flame' little boy Converse are all William. When we first met him in China, Will had a pair of shoes that were similar with the flames on the side. Will called them his 'Lightning shoes.' Lighting as in 'Lightning McQueen' in the movie Cars. When he outgrew them it broke my heart but these are a close match. Will LOVES them already. Also found at Target, here.


These 2 new tees for Will, with the dragon and tiger were found at the Tea Collection.

Tea clothes are all 100% cotton, extremely well made and very soft. They do many Asian inspired collections which I love and right now have a Korean inspired one, which I'm crazy about.

And the below beautiful dress(the Anapji Pond Print Dress) is for Grace, also from the Tea Collection. I don't work for the company, just happen to love their clothes. ;)

Well with my recent trip to Target, I couldn't come home without something for Grace. I found these cute white sandals. She's gone up a size in shoes, I brought these home for her to try on. They are true to size and she loved the flower with the faux diamond on them! These are very Grace.


Our Gracie girl is a swimmer, and she has been swimming every week for the last 3 years. Though she has other basic suits to swim in the pool, we bought these 2 new cute ones recently. She picked them out herself.


The above leopard tank with ruffle one was found at CWD Kids. It's made by Flapdoodles.







And finally another suit that she chose is the above one by Kate Mack Swimwear at A Child's Closet. It's a gorgeous antique washed coral print bikini. Grace also talked me into the pair of matching flip flops. A Child's Closet is a great online boutique brand store. I highly recommend it. I shop from all kinds of places for my kids, from Target to mid priced and boutique children's stores. You can find cute clothes and shoes for kids everywhere.

Let me know if you have a great website or store you love for children's clothing and shoes. Oh, I also buy clothes off ebay for my kids from time to time and have had great experiences with it!

Happy Friday!

These are all fantastic, Gail. I can just see both W&G in all of these.

I can tell by the looks of things that you REALLY are ready for Spring/Summer!

Sweetie has a leopard one arm off the shoulder bathing suit from CDW kids with a big pink flower on the shoulder and she LOVES it...luckily it still fits her for summer...
Love the sandals for Grace and the tees for William and the sneakers too!

Soon, Gail.......soon winter will be over!
