This is one of Christine's dolls going to New Orleans this month, Captain Penny,  I saw it in person and the detail is just unreal, click up close to see what I mean. 

Artistic, creative and just fun.

Today I remember all the lives lost in 9/11.  I pray for the families of the victims.  I pray for peace.  I hope that someday all learn to respect each other no matter what religion, race or beliefs we have.  The future of our children and grandchilden are in our hands, each and every one of us.

This is Paris Cafe, a beautiful sewing cottage turned into the setting for the baby shower for Kathleen's daughterin law.  After months of preparation the event took place yeterday afternoon.  The food was wonderful and Seana, mom to be received so many darling clothes for baby Vivian Kathleen, that she can change her three to four times a day and never have her wear the same outfit twice in a week.  She will be the best dressed baby in Santa Cruz.  Blankets, quilts, shoes, bibs, burp cloths, book shelve, books, running stroller and more.  Games played.  All left with the beautiful eiffel tower cookie, made by the help of three.  Jenna, Kathleen's daughter made the dough, Kathleen made the cookies along with the help of friend Donna ( kitchen oven and frosting). 

Bread was baked at Gayle's Bakery.  Cupcakes were baked by good friend of Seana.


Quilt made by me.  A real gift of love to the couple Seana & Jonathan.  Welcome baby Vivian Kathleen.
