Trained Seal


Tonight after work my mother and I went to the Italian Festival in Portland and ate some yummy pasta and watched people dance to Italian tunes :)
Downtown there are these little iron statues of animals I just love. I figured the seal would be the perfect buddy for me in my circus dress, isn't he cute!

Thanks everyone for your encouraging and informative comments on my last post, I am going to try out lots of things because I would really love to master this in oh, 50 years or so ;)

I may have to push the wedding post I promised to early next week if I don't finish this weekend. But I am working all weekend so don't count on it ;)

Dress: Handmade by me from a 1930s pattern.

Purse and 1930s hat: The Urban Eccentric.

Hey, just wanted to chime in that your short hair looks really cute! It puts a different spin on your style, and today's curls are magnificent.

Sigh. Loving the 30's dress. What pattern is that? Is it on the vintage pattern wiki?

Goodness, you really are a dab hand with your sewing machine! Your new frock is absolutely fabulous!! :)

You're inspiring me to have a fiddle with my vintage Singer to see if I can get it to sew me some beautiful things too! :)
