dedicated young follower of fashion…


one preschool back pack (which will be the envy of all little preschool mates in the class)

shopping list:

magnetic snap
shoe string?
d rings or ?
iron on stabilizer
cord (or ribbon)

for my nephew, who sports his mittens one with a boat and the other with an anchor. i am going to make this without a pattern but i have a good idea of what it will look like. my only real set back is the mechanics of the back pack. it may not make it to him for santa’s delivery but maybe the tooth fairy could help me out….

ahh yes it is

i quote my brother:
"so, the red sox won the world series, in a sweep, no less. the patriots are poised to win the super bowl - who can beat them, really? the boston celtics are off to a good start. and the new england revolution are playing sunday in the mls cup. is it good to be a new england fan, or what?"

this is true- after almost one century- we get our game on...
- still and always very much a new englander at heart

my new book store find in the midst of those lucky austonians…

great finds in this store

a store which may make you stop and think of how each of us can change the world…

and besides~ what other city in this lonestar state could have a bookstore which carries ‘bush’ toilet paper and still claim to be the largest book store in texas?
