That's what they'll call us. As this is posting, we (my sis, mom and I) are on a train steadily chugging our way to Paris. Happy news: it's my sister's surprise birthday present! Sad news: my dad, who was supposed to be with us, got stranded on a business trip in D.C. with the flu and they won't let him fly!! :( We've decided to make the best of this because, really, who wants to travel with a sicko? :) There's still a chance he could meet us halfway through the trip, as his return flight stops in Paris anyways.
I usually spoil her for her bday. Exhibit A:
Exhibit B: A little underwater beauty. I also made her mini-anchor earrings but didn't get a picture. OK fine. I did take one but it turned out blurry and being the blog-photo snob that I am I refuse to put up a blurry picture. Sorry.
And... Exhibit C: A sailor-y top I made by embellishing a normal jersey tank. I really had a lot of fun making this and it looks so much better in person than the photos can convey. By the way, it looks crooked here but that's just how it's hanging. Really.
I used a soft linen (blue stripes), Kona cotton (white strip in the middle) and a soft and stretchy knit for the top and bottom ruffles.
Now all she is missing is a peg-leg and a parrot. Shouldn't be too tricky to find on the streets of Paris!
I can hardly contain myself. Paris may be my favorite city of all. I'll be back in a few with stories and pictures!!
