maybe you can find something similar someday lucille!...
...

i have found that if i wait long enough...eventually someone will do something similar to something that i lost or wish i had bought, etc...
it can take a long time...but eventually, if i am patient...i can find something like it again...
...

cooking is dangerous for clothing...
i should really wear an apron...
i need to find a cute one...
i just hate to spend the money on a good one cause i know i will never wear it out of the house...
......

but i guess if it protects my fave clothes, it would be well worth the $$$
i want/need one that looks like a proper pinafore...
not just around the waist-
cause i always splash things on my tops!!!...


so- i ruined another top last weekend making salad dressing...
got olive oil splatters on an olive coloured t-shirt...
i've washed it twice now...but the oil stains wont come out!
i'm afraid the top is toast...
*sigh*...

^ have you checked places like william sonoma for your apron? i know at the store by my place at least, that they are having a big sale right now and their stuff is good quality so you should be able to keep it for years.

ohhh...i love love love...that dries shirt...it's one of my fave things he's done in menswear...

hmmm...that might work somehow...
it can't hurt to try...
i wonder...
what colours would look good with the olive...?
maybe it should be about 3 colours...
i think navy would be good...and then maybe some lighter colours...
hmm...i am going to have to play around and do some colour tests...
wow- this could be a fun project, actually!...
thanks runner!!!...
......:p...

thanks also to lelaid...
i'll check the W&S website...

ETA- william sonoma does not have cute aprons...
they have aprons customized with football teams......
i guess those are meant for guys at the grill...
not for moi!...

good luck softgrey

though I don't know what kind of olive the top is, much darker olive or a certain hue of red might be interesting.

Is there any way huge platform sneakers could not be rave-ish?

They do take anything you wear somewhere else, but I've re-visited the web of that brand and it's completely different.

I had a pair of off-white heels that became more off than white after a few nights out... so I came up with the idea of spraying them another color (silver) and now they look brand new .

Of course, I would never do this with a pair of designer heels but for making over a pair of budget shoes the spraypaint is a quick and easy way of updating them.

I have a fantastic small black bag that used to be covered with leather flakes. And when almost all of them were fallen, I send it to shoemaker and he removed flakes. My bag was safe - now it's pure leather.

^^Softgrey, you can get oil out of that t-shirt.

I had oil stains on a pair of pants recently and read that if you massage dishwasher soap (like Dawn) into the stain, let it sit for 2-3 minutes, and hand wash the soap off in warm water the oil can be removed.
