Flowershopgirl JR.

I think my baby sister may follow in my footsteps...

We picked some flowers from our garden.

And she helped me arrange them.
She loves to smell them.

1950s dress

This is a dress I made last fall. I really liked how it turned out but the weather got cold so fast that I wasn't able to wear it. Anyway, here it is!

The fabric is cotton. Gotta love cotton...
I remember this dress was a cinch to put together. The bodice and sleeves are all one piece so I didn't have to set sleeves! Yeah!!!
The pattern was an original pattern from the 1950s... sadly I can't find the envelope to take a picture...

Another 1950s dress...

I know I must sound like a broken record... but, did you notice in my "About me" it says I love all things vintage?? :-)

Anyway, this dress did NOT come from an original circa 1950 pattern. I sort of cheated. Although, I'm pretty sure the pattern is out of print so that makes it vintage, right?

I really wanted a chocolate brown/white polka dot printed fabric but I had to settle for this. Maybe I'll find the brown another time and make something else.
Side pose... see our beautiful trees?
The gloves were my great grandmothers'. :-)

Since Katie's blog is hilarious right now, I thought I'd cheat and just link to her. I'll post something of my own soon, I promise!

Katie's Blog


I normally refrain from using this term. But, after a little discusion on it in the last post, I looked it up.

Here's the definition:
Idiot- An offensive term for somebody who has a psychiatric disorder or a learning problem but who is exceptionally gifted in one particular area, for example, rapid mental calculation, architectural drawing, or remembering facts.

I don't know much about Hemmingway. I never liked anything he wrote, and I know he had some issues. So, I don't know if the term applies or not.

Some people say he is "exceptionally gifted." I wonder if, like beauty, talent is in the eye of the beholder?

Reply to writing post

Um... I didn't really laugh. It was more like... "OH! So, that's what my problem is!" :-)

I think the person that said that was Ernest Hemmingway. I'm not for sure on that, though. Do you remember Tyson?

“Real seriousness in regard to writing is one of two absolute necessities. The other, unfortunately, is talent.”

Don't make me laugh...

Molly Gibson Dress

I made this dress using the Sense And Sensibility Romantic Dress Pattern. I modeled it after this dress...
of Molly Gibson's in one of my favorite movies Wives and Daughters! I thought it would be fun to make for around the house wear!
