all things ootsy

Two posts in two days...am I sick or something? Yes! I've got Oscar Fever!!! NOT. Since when did it become a 12-hour ordeal event anyway?

Feh, who cares anymore, all anyone wants to see is who's wearing the worst dress, or who's looking anorexic or pregnant. Bah, I say.

Bootie Call....

Now there's a movie that never won an Oscar, but in my case it refers to my further experimentations with the allegorical baby bootie booklet. Alliteration aside, here's the pics I promised yesterday.

There's no place like home:


These were fun, called Little Red Sandals, this test is the small, the sole measures around 3 1/2 inches, which would probably be the famous 0-3 months size.


Shoot the duck:


Honestly I question the practicality of these, but couldn't you DIE from the cuteness? Can't you just hear "Funkytown" or "Dancing Queen" playing in the background while all the other cool teens & tweens skate circles around you in your satin jacket and your jeans rolled up so everyone can see your long rainbow socks with the individual toes?? Yes, I was a child of the '70's, but unfortunately I never owned either a satin jacket (much to my chagrin) or knee-high rainbow socks with the individual toes....hey man, I wasn't even teen aged until the '80s...

Seriously though, a word of advice to anyone planning to make these far-out and funky skates: make the wheels first and sew them on when you're on round 2 or 3 of the boot...trust me, you will save yourself one heck of a lot of frustration.

Seriously, Kiki, when I saw the little crocheted roller skate--I started hearing all these 70's disco songs in my head. First it was Olivia Newton-John singing "Xanadu," (unlike Rush's Xanadu which is not disco at all,) then "Boogie Wonderland." Must...go...turn on Music Choice...lol!
