A senior moment and Bella fat book inspiration

Well, it is finally daughter is a senior.
We spent the afternoon at the Gwynn Castle in Arrington, Tennessee.
Most of the photographs were shot outside. For any Taylor Swift fans
out there, this is the location of the castle where she shot her
award winning video, Love Story.
I love the behind the scene shots. The drape doesn't look so lovely in
this view! And look, no arms.

It seems a little weird to see her in the cap and gown. I can
definately wait until next May for it to be real!

The photographer was kind enough to capture a shot with my camera.
A mom needs a few photos for the scrapbook. And yes, sad but true, my
legs are that white! (This is the staircase that Taylor runs down to
meet her Romeo...kinda romantic, huh?)
Switching gears now.....a few more photos of Susan Edmonson's
beautiful fabric artwork. I have signed up for a Silver Bella
swap, called Bella Holiday fat book.
I will be making 11 fabric pages filled with buttons, lace and
other pretty embellishments.

Susan's lovely work provides plenty of inspiration for me!
Luckily, I have about 3 months to get all of this done, and
I will need every bit of it! Kana

Happy Father's Day..... this wonderful fella, my dad Jim. I stumbled across
a few family photographs from my grandmother's
collection and wanted to share this one.

Wishing everyone a happy first day of summer!
Theses 2 gals look to be enjoying their beachy day.

I prefer this cooler looking gal, decked out in blue
and hopefully a little shade. I am hoping for
cooler days ahead! Kana

Happy Flag day and a new banner!

June 14th is Flag day and also happens to be my
birthday. I was born circa 1962 and our beautiful
American flag is special to me.

In honor of my day, Flag day, and July 4th, I asked Kris to make
me this vintage, patriotic blog banner. She did a great job!

A little Silver Bella update....we have been active with the
Yahoo group and currently signing up for a few great
swaps. Our vendor night dress theme has been
announced and we will be wearing aprons. I think this
will be great fun to make. Teresa is hosting a contest
for the best vintage, kitschy and glam aprons! Now,
I must get busy sewing.
I hope everyone has a great Flag day tomorrow.
