  4. Love the link to the nautical look. Now if I looked just like a Vogue model.......(keep dreaming)
    Red, white & blue deserts will have to do. Maybe that's why I don't look like a Vogue model.

  8. THANK YOU DEAREST HEART! We are having the most splendid weather here in Minneapolis, following a horrible storm that tore through here on Friday night. But all is well, the sun shines brightly into my studio as I type, and love surrounds me. Bless you sweet Carolyn, and may you be well and happy...Anita

  47. The red, white and blue desserts are fun to make Carolyn...this year everyone made those adorable cookies on the cover of Martha Stewart's Living magazine. Not me, 'cause I am not a good cookie decorator!

    Love that dress and the site was fun.
