Vintage Pillowcase Tote Bag

This is on its way to the shop tonight. Here's a sneak peek:

UPDATE: 06.24.08 @ 9:48 p.m. IT IS IN THE SHOP!

The Indiana Jones Bag

Shouldn't everybody have one of these? I whipped this up several weeks ago. Now Little Guy wears it all over the place. Now Son No. 1 wants one too. :-)

More Patio Love

More photos from the Little Guy's birthday party on Sunday. The weather was very cooperative so we spent as much time outside as possible.

A good time was had by all.

Cake Decorating 101

Yes, the old man can still wield a bag of icing. In the old days, I made frosting from scratch (with shortening, powdered sugar, etc., etc.). These days, it's store-bought. But...with a flair. In the old days, the cake came OUT of the cake pan before it was frosted and decorated. These days, the cake stays IN the pan. Damn, I'm getting lazy.

Gotta love the folks at Wilton.
They make some really great tools for decorating a cake.

The "Lego Time" was a very last minute addition.
With some help from the Birthday Boy!

Next time: I'm going to back to the 'scratch' method. Store bought is not even close to homemade. Who would have thought, huh?

Just wondering

if I should skip the monthly fee on TypePad and come back to Blogger. I swear I can't make up my mind.

In the meantime, I'll pretend that I'm sitting on the patio, enjoying a perfect summer day.
