Planning in Pink

My oldest daughter is turning 8
and so we are going to make her a very pretty dress
to wear after her baptism.
She selected some very pretty fabrics.
The fabrics are all ordered (Fashion Fabrics Club)
and I can't wait to have them arrive so we can start it!
Now i need to start looking for a pretty smocking plate for the bodice.

Vintage 4th of July

We like to have a theme for our 4th of July festivities.
This year we decided a 30's look
with golf and homemade pie would be fun!
Homemade mini golf.... brilliant.
second hand quilts and linens for table cloths... gorgeous
folksie golf tee games and school slates with chalk... fun
Mmmm... yummy food!
Everyone saved room for pie!
We only wished we'd made more!!!!
I admit I love making pies.
I made two, a Strawberry pie
and a Raspberry 'n blueberry pie.
No leftovers.
Every year we put up canopies to shade us from the sun.
This year they also protected us from the rain.
The rain actually made it cozy and set a very romantic mood.
(until the drips went down your back LOL)
