Setting the Stage

Ive been missing in action this last week trying to get my catalog & samples done. Here's a look at my mini photo shoot.
This is in my backyard! I love the texture of the bark on this tree. And all the greenery is compliments of the previous owner's passion for cactus which I completely dont understand. So the object of the game is to get a few photos with out too much cactus getting in the way!

I just love these colors together.
This pinky-red mixes well with the robin's egg blue and warm cream.
I like my chippy table on the deck so we'll take closeups there.....

 Thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.

Blessings & Hugs!

This will make you laugh

 Do you remember the old show "Truth or Consequences"? After carefully considering the consequences of sharing this story, I figured you will laugh so hard that whatever you are drinking will come out of your nose. So consider yourself forewarned! And if you don't get a giggle, then you are a grump!
I was commenting on Cindy's blog, Cute Pink Stuff about her mermaids and said someday I will tell you my mermaid story. She replied she'd like to hear it....
Please put whatever you are drinking down.

Around 1989 I had signed up with a local talent agency with hopes of breaking into the business. I got the call I had waited for but there was one small catch. Was I willing to wear a mermaid costume for 2 hours? Apparently I am the catch! Well being short on cash  I figured how bad could it be? I picked up the costume and headed to the address on the bay in Newport Harbor where I was given a place to change before I got on the boat. Yes this would be a 3 hour tour(insert Gilligan's Island theme here)

Unbeknown to me I was the centerpiece on a buffet table! Yep, you heard that right! This was a corporate party for a Japanese beer company and I was in for quite the surprise!

Seriously there were plates of food sitting all around me! And each attendee came over and snapped pictures of their associates with me as they leaned over the buffet and tried not to get tartar sauce on their suits!
I was quite shocked. This was definitely not glamourous.

Now 2 decades later, 3 kids and a minivan I can say I would do it again!!!

Now bloggettes, you know my deepest, darkest most laughable moment!

Busy Bee Sewing Away

Hello~ Oh my I haven't posted in  a while.....

I've been a busy bee buzzing around my sewing room! Do you like my new pillows? I call this the "French Hen" collection.

Can you ever have enough pink? No, I don't think so either! I call this the "French Floral" collection. I will have these up on my website soon. There are several more collections coming! I'm excited about the new things. It's always fun to have something new to work on. I hope you are all doing well. Thank you for coming by while I was having technical trouble. Amber did a great job with my website and added a coordinating header to my blog.  If you need any help with your blog or website visit Sprinkles on top.
