Every day is special...
and every day is short.
Every day is the only one of that day that you will get.
Do something to honor today, even if it is a sad or difficult day. And remember that without today, there is no tomorrow.
|Yes, there were six, but I ate one right up!|
|This kid is a smiler :) I'm glad she is so happy.|
|I used some thrifted Dritz Halo buttons- perfect, huh?|
|I'm thinking view 3. It'll be cranberry silk with the lace overblouse! Excitement!|
I also have a few tricks up my sleeve for the surrounding festivities, as I will be throwing her a shower in July. I hope I win the pattern I have selected for the shower! I already have the fabric picked out....all in the name of stashbusting I tell you! It is a sweet, sweet sickness I have!
|The reel to reel is not a prop- it sits there in our living room all the time. |
We have no TV, but we have the reel to reel. Are we living in the past?
|The lighting with the candles makes me look nice and glowy, but you can't see any of the details of the dress. |
That is why we later moved outside...
|These are the shots we get when I follow my husband's directions ;)|
|Baby A, a.k.a. "Gremel" always wants in on the excitement.|
|I guess it's art-fart of me, but I always thought it would be neat to have a photo where I am|
dressed formally, and Gremel is in her diaper.
I can now cross that one off the list!
|We moved outside, where it was frickin' cold, but the lighting was way better.|
See? The dress has a collar.
|Keeping it real country with the cold frame and dead fall garden in these shots.|
|Love that barn!|
|Here is a back view showing the zip and back collar. Neither of us realized my hook and eye were undone,|
so the facing does not actually hang out like that. Too cold for a redo!
|A close up on the belt and slide|
|Hem tape- ooh la la!|
|Some finger on the lens action- these are the onions, chard, and tomatoes...before the takeover|
|I made a little sign, and that is where the blog got it's name|
|Peppers, Marigolds, tomatoes, and herbs, all in a beautiful green mish-mash|
|So many squash and cukes|
|Even more squash and cukes- we made the mistake of leaving town for a few days...and the veggies grew to gigantor sizes|
|Just the very end of the pepper crop. We accidentally grew at least 3 times that amount!|
|Beets, my true veggie love. And beet greens, also delicious sauteed in oil.|
|Tzatziki, Tzatziki, Tzatziki|
|We had so much squash it became a nuisance- we used the patty pan for skeet!|
|Black Krim = so delicious|
