I find myself in a world of pink...

Today, I wore pink and black sunsuit that my sister got for me at Daffy's and Pippi wore a pink bandanna that I made for her with poodles on it.

Yesterday, my friend Judith made a dress for me with the same fabric.  It was like magic.

She measured  me and  then cut and sewed the dress without any pattern or pins, in less than two hours.  I had  these poodle earrings that I made from keychains to go with it.

Then I remembered the new wallet that I bought at Pearl River last week - its mostly pink.

And I just finished reading a children's book called "The Pink Motel" by Carol Ryrie Brink in which the color pink is used as a symbol of individuality leading to a better understanding and acceptance of diversity.

So THINK PINK and enjoy your weekend!

Fruit #3

Here is another "Fruit" outfit.  I reconstructed the dress from a 1960's shirt by cutting off the collar and sleeves, reshaping the neck and adding pink tulle to the bottom.  The belt is made out of grass turf and fake flowers [I didn't make it].  Green cowboy boots, white satin gloves, a green button bracelet [that I did make] and green dangling earrings finish off the outfit.  All I need is a place to go!  Maybe I should start my own "Fruits" gathering - anyone want to join me?   How about on Sunday afternoons at the High Line in NYC?
