Yeah. That's adorable. I wonder where she's off to?

She said something about a "restorative interlude" whatever that means.

Is that a Harajuku girl? Love her.

She's a cutie, but didn't I see that little umbrella in your junk drawer stuff? Only you could do that. I checked my drawer and came up with sweetheart confetti, tick picker, duct tape, and a Malcom figure from Jurassic Park. What can I make with those?
That reminds me. I've been meaning to ask you, what I can make from a pair of Tom's old wool hunting pants? I snatched what he was throwing away. They're an ugly color so I bought some dye, but that doesn't change the fact that they're REALLY itchy. What do you think? A halter top?

Jenny: I didn't know what a Harajuku girl was, but yes! I like to think of her as part of the cutting edge.
Tracie: my junk was edited - I skipped over the tick spoon, 35 pens that don't work, phone chargers from 3 cell phones ago, etc.
re: wool pants, first I'd wash them in hot water cold rinse with soap or detergent & you could also use fabric softener (might help), then I'd see how it felt before proceeding with the halter top. (pincushion, some type of purse big or small, do a search on Flickr for 'felted', 'felted wool', felted sweaters' etc. get tons of ideas...

You know Gwen Stefani did a song about them. Those young girls in Japan that wear the wild outfits, you know.

Since you mentioned them I saw a news article @ her & the Harajuku girls!
