It's just me. Coming back to write about silly little things again. I just perused my old pix and stuff and I love all the memories of my kiddos that I was able to capture. I miss it as much as I miss the amount of time I'm able to spend with them these days. But, I'm over dwelling on it. I'm ready to continue our silly little stories if only for me to read. No more challenges and all that stuff. Blogging can be so cut-throat. Everyone always seemed to be one upping each other. At least in my mind. :) And this is my mind, so I will carry on! (Tim Gunn - I love ya man! we have a hot date tonight)

Back to reality...where your heroine left off - bitter and angry over my diminished capacity of stay at home to office gal. The shoes are my favorite part. And I think what happens when stuck in an office for so long is that you don't realize you're stuck there after a while. :( makes me sad but I think I'm there. Of course, now that the girls are back in school I'm not missing them so much. They're off doing there thing and so am I. Like keeps moving like this. Like sand slipping through my fingers. Which reminds me. I'll be on the beach in 2 weeks. Heaven help me. Sitting on my ass all day hasn't helped the 50 lbs melt from my body. My typing skills are amazing these days. That's me trying to look for the positive. yeah that's me. wink wink.

Why did I return here after deleting all my favorite blog

You be mine

I am seriously in love with this stack of vintage pretties.  My favorite is this quaint hankie!!

 Flea market find. All mine.  For - drum roll - $10!  An entire Marshall's shopping bag full. Luckily my partner in crime has eagle eyes for boxes of neglected old stuff.  Stay tuned to see what they become later!!

Omgosh Vegan Banana Cake

So. I have been MIA for almost an entire year in blog days.  I can hear the crickets. Nah, even they have left the building.  But, I am not a quitter.  Regardless of what you may have heard!  So I am back with a mission. I want to capture my recipes here. Yawn. I know. Food blog so 5 years ago.  But, it is for me. So I can have an actual record of my successful vegan offerings. I know. Vegan.  Yuck. Right?  How did that happen?  One daughter with a soul for kindness and ethical treatment of animals.  The rest of us are just vegetarians.  We are shamefully consuming butter, eggs and cheese. Not often. Just enough to gorge ourselves with our favorite pizza. And cookies. So the vegan child doesn't waste away to her birth weight, I am on a mission to redo our recipes into really good vegan offerings.  So. Warm from the oven on a brisk Autumn eve, banana cake.

It is a yummy first attempt.  I can't believe I am saying this but I will cut the sugar next time.  Crazy, huh?  I didn…

Pretty in pink...

Cotton shirts.  Love 'em. Usually can't wear 'em.  Too tight. Pull at the boobs.  Or, shrink in the first wash.  And being a plus size gal, I need some softness and movement to keep an illusion of me.  Reality in a stiff button up, not so pretty. So, an old linens table cloth, so soft. Nicely torn for texture. And an old soft lace cafe curtain.

Stella, my model, is asymmetrical so it appears wonky.
