The title refers to a little tiny shoe  hanging from the silver chain.   I wanted to keep her simple  and fresh and spontaneous.

I watched the emmys last night, have to admit, I rarely watch sitcomsand for example, I’ve never seen an episode of Desperate Housewives or the Sopranos. These shows just don’t interest me, although I think I will buy the Sopranos on dvd partly because there are no commercials.  I record just about any program that I want to see so I can zip right through commercials which irritate the heck out of me except for maybe the Target adds ;). House would be the only sitcom I actually have knowledge of and occasionally I watch wife swap which fascinates me because I see how people get so stuck on their own way of existing in and viewing the world around them. Anyway,  I have to admit that I like to watch award shows so I can see the dresses, and there were some very elegant dresses but few that I think had that wow factor. America Ferrar (?)  wore an eye catching blue  dress that made me think of pure pigment. Speaking of fashion a friend recently mentioned the Betsy Johnson Spring 08 collection which is full of whimsey and charm, reminds me of playing dress up in old prom dresses when I was a kid,  what fun.

Still here

Hi I’m still here.

The  work  above is in progress, I started her well over a year ago. I want the focus to be on her hand but I am still deliberating about what I want it to be doing or holding, maybe a beaded curtain.

We won’t be having company over for dinner after all, and so, my hub and I will have "caldo de res" for days (Mexican beef soup, such comforting food, reminds me of my abuelita).  I also made some ooh so hot salsa from scratch. Good smells in my kitchen today 😉




I’ve added a step by step procedure for making an ornie, in pictures over in my doll making wiki…
