yes, dear

ArtsyMama's blog party last week has created some nice ripple effects. I have been surfing the sites, and got stuck at artjunkgirl's inchies and her inchie tutorial. Bait, hook, sinker. Her inchies are lovely, and she has over 600 of them already. Go take a look if you are not familiar with her gorgeous work!

Here is my first attempt following the instructions. I had a 50's magazine to play with, and somehow it all came together. You can almost make a couple of short stories with these tiles.

we thought of - have a glass of - fun - perfect
a bit stubborn - way to lose weight - healthy and nourishing - thin in spite of goodies
I'm sure - just right - they went for a walk - quite so
yes, dear - enjoy a good meal without guilt. Hold a few Corrigan-days a week and... - healthy and simple - yes...?

Weekend scavenging (read: local flea market) yielded a treasure. Real Life Stories from the year 1932. Yesss!
