Lucky you, lucky poodles- sounds like you're all having fun! I like your description of the dog park.I used to spend every morning at a dog park with my 2 pooches( but now I walk them-that way I get some excercise!) I really like all the AMAZING friday finds this time. How do you do it???!! I'm lusting over them all. I love slide shows- we used to do them on new year's eves- everyone brought x amount of slides and we mixed them all up and then made up stories about the images. It was lots of fun.

Hi there!

Love the apron and fabric! I am considering visiting DC just for the Village shopping! Wouldn't mind meeting you either. :)

I have several vintage slide boxes from when I used to shoot slides. I never could find a working prjector though...

Cheers!

I have over 5,000 slides! You would not believe the headache is was to organize them into binders...thank god my partner helped me otherwise I would have began throwing them at people, lol. And the dog parks around here(Dc) rock. I work at friendship hospital for animals and have met sooo many people through my job- dog people tend to be nice.
And I must go to the village with you and shop, I'm so ubber jealous.

hiya! glad you want the shoes. maybe instead of paying me, we can trade when you visit. maybe some fabric or another one of your many rad thrift finds?
