We've been busy making items - and like the name "Mimi and Moo" for our ventures. I'm Mimi (my little granddaughter Olive recently out-of-the-blue decided that is what she would call me) and Joanne is Moo (a name her kids have called her for years.) And now that she is a grandmother, it fits perfectly. We'll combine our talents for sewing and crocheting (along with our love of thrift shopping and hunting through vintage markets) to make adorable wearables for infants and toddlers.

up-cycled clothing items from thrift stores, combined with vintage lace, buttons, and crocheted flowers.

Mimi and Moo can stay very busy with this and there is no telling where it may lead. We both have a lot of talent in our families - artists, photographers, and architects. Perhaps there is no limit to our creative dreams. Starting with an Etsy shop (once we have enough inventory) - we'll go from there - perhaps doing a pop-up shop or two during the next holiday season.
