Cotton Candy Summer









My last couple of days in Florida were a little less hectic. Tessa and I mastered the art of giving Kitty Boos his medicine, which cleared up a lot of my time. We spent most of the day watching over him, but were able to leave him to rest for an hour or two, here and there. I didn't have much clothing on hand, since my visit was supposed to only be a week. I ended up altering this old dress, that had a matronly mock turtle neck and a dowdy, ankle length hem. I gave it elastic princess sleeves, lowered the neckline, added the button tab to the back and shortened the hem. Not perfect, but it worked well, in a pinch.

I'm hoping things start looking up. My best friend, Lauren, is in town right now. I'm so glad to have her here; she is always a life saver. I'm happy to be smiling again.

Love love,
Keiko Lynn
