Play "Pay it Forward 2011"

Hi there my fellow junque-y friends,
I know you're out there and like me,
rarely have time to comment on each blog that visit,
but this may bring a few of you out...
I'm joining Jeanne from junxtaposition
For a round of
Pay it Forward
(Be sure and check out her site - she does really
cool typewriter stuff, and her tags w/ vintage images
and cute sayings make great gift tags for your gal friends...!)
And I would love to offer a handmade present to the first five people who comment
and agree to play Pay it Forward as described below.

Sooooo...The first five people who comment on this blog post
will receive a handmade gift from me.
(after I return from France on March 25th!)

In return, you must write a blog post explaining
Pay It Forward 2011. Then.... send out a handmade gift
to the first 5 visitors who leave a comment on your post.

Take your don't need to send them all today
or tomorrow. Any time in the next few months.
No pressure.
This is to be a joyful experience.
I had a lot of fun with little blog parties and swaps
when I first started blogging a few years ago and
am happy to participate in another event!
"It's not the size of the gift that matters,
but the spirit of paying it forward."
Not sure who to give credit to for the cool graphic... thanks though!

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.
