Dogs on Thursday - Happy Birthday Sophia

Sophia Nicole turned six yesterday. My oh my how time flies. It seems like only yesterday we brought this tiny little bundle of fur home with us. Sophia's first day home Sophia with her tug-of-war playmate. Sophia at 6 mos. Sophia with Brandi. Brandi was 11 years old when Sophia came to live with us and they quickly became best buds. Sophia today, with her new buddy, Abby. And no, we did not have birthday cake and ice cream to celebrate her birthday. But if we would have don't you think these cupcakes would have been appropriate?

RetroRama Returns!

I'm so excited!The spring RetroRama is back! The last one I attended was soooo much fun...even if I never did get my 50s era dress (Vogue 2401) completed in time . In fact, it turned into a UFO and I honestly don't feel like finishing it for this event. Remember the post about this vintage 1953 sewing pattern? That's what I'm going to attempt to sew for this event. Which means I need to get started on making the pattern larger. Thanks to Dana 's comments I know I can find the information I need in a Threads magazine. She also left a link to a blog with the same info. Because the theme this time is a "celebration of suburbia" a hostess apron might make a good accessory.
