Weak in the Knees

There are things that can take my breath away. Let's start with the non-edible, shall we? I got a catalog in the mail the other day and here are just a few of the things that left me breathless. First because of their beauty, second because of their cost. It has convinced me that I must learn to sew clothing. Oh, and so they receive their proper credit, the catalog is Chasing Fireflies.

I know. It's just sick. SICK, I tell you! Completely impractical. Entirely ridiculous to spend $168 on a pair of ruffled pink culottes. Worse, $288 on that white Meringue dress. Can't we just try them on and twirl in them for a few minutes, take a picture and then walk away? I would be fine with that. Truly, I would. Then, I'm going to learn how to sew and I'm going to make something romantic and twirly and fabulously impractical for my Sassy. Yes I am. And I'll post some photos when I'm done. Only time will tell whether those photos are for bragging purposes or in order to laugh at myself for a freshly sewn disaster.

If I had a girl I'd be broke. The end.

Unfortunately, I can't sympathize with your weak knees. It's all about the grungy boy clothes around here.
