My bottom in all it's Pj pants glory!
The self portrait!My beautiful sewing machine. An oldy but a goody!
This is not a photo that Kenzi took. This is my latest sewing project. It looks awesome over jeans or black pants. I have been watching ever so many classic movies and was inspired to make a dress that reminded me of the awesome fashion.
NOTE: I have no idea why some of these labels are blue. Help! They are not supposed to be but I have no idea how to change them. Can any of my clever and younger sisters help out an old luddite!

This is Millicent.
Milli helps me sew and listens when I cry.
She is my constant companion, but does not like the water!
She is a surrogate sister when my real ones choose to live thousands, billions, trillions of miles away.
Miss Milli - welcome to the family!
How cool an idea are these (they are actually plastic Japanese toys!) My kids are going to eat zoos full of creations (when I have the time and energy!!!)
And how creepy cool is the Herello!!!
Creative at least!!
Bento, or obento is a meal served in a box. Beyond that basic definition though, just about anything goes as to what kind of box or container is used, as well as what is put inside that box,.
The kind of bento that have garnered the most attention recently, especially outside of Japan are what are called ‘cute bento’ ‘art bento’ or ‘entertaining bento’ (entertain-bento), extremely elaborately decorated small works of art, as exemplified by the work presented on sites like e-obento (Japanese). ((Click on enter and then just the months at the top to see awesome ideas and picts!!))
These are usually made by mothers for their small children. There can be a high level of competitiveness in this arena, which I’ll talk about sometime.
One cool thing about Bento boxes was determined Japanese mothers who wanted to improve their childs nutritional intake- What an awesome and effective solution!
The other fact which is sad is they also started making them to stop bullying, increase popularity and social standing which is all important there if your not naturally born into a wealthy high family. Obviously the rich kids don't get fancy Bento lunches and the poor kids "WOW" them as they undo their lids at lunch time!!
That's no wonder if the boxes look anything like these below!
Good lucky Trinny and Linny you competitive for social standing nutritionalist mothers!!!! XXX
