just a quick note to say: Read books, it feeds your soul... it may do zilch for your syntax, but hey, I'm sick)... I joined the Slow Readers Book Club, begun by the lovely Diana, (like the camera!) of ourcitylights.org, and I urge you all to pick up a copy of Jeannette Walls' Half-Broke Horses and git readin, pony!
and, those other two words: Positive Feedback! It is what it sounds like, a real feel gooder!
I have been off of posting because I have been sick, but will be back and badder than ever, soon. In the meantime, check out my shop, and work hard and be nice to your friends and family and your pets, especially the pets because they haven't got a choice now, do they?

In my possibly too-vivid imagination, I have cast this dress in the starring wardrobe role on vacation: it is the only garment you will need for that little island getaway or puddle-jumping trip (or all summer, for that matter). It is too big for me, but involves one of my fave colors, that celery-colored green.
Now, vintage labels: Vintage labels are something. This one spells out T H E R M O J A C in all-cap block letters, in primary colors. The letters look kind of like tumbling children's blocks. Seeing the label actually sold me on the dress. (Does anyone else do that?)
