It could be argued that there is an element of entertainment in every pie, 
as every pie is inherently a surprise by virtue of its crust.

While my sister was baking an apple pie for my dad's birthday, I had a most tremendously good idea.

This dress. This dress is a good idea on so many levels. First of all, just look at it. These kind of style dresses are just perfect for people like me. People who like fabric. Lots and lots of fabric. It made me frolic. I was frolicing around as if my life depended on it. My mum actually ordered me to stop frolicing around because it was driving her mad. But you can't help to do otherwise in this dress!

I've actually owned this dress for quite a while now, but haven't really worn it out much (such a fuss when traveling by train and bus. Those seats are just too small! I need space people!). I should wear it more out, though. Walking through the neighbourhood, acting like it's 1947 all over again. Although, when I walked Jack in this dress we came across a woman who first of all complimented my dress *thank you very much* and then noticed her dog was gone. So She and I (and Jack) had to search for it and eventually -luckily- found it (thanks to Jacks impeccable sense of smell that naturally is). Then the woman told me this isn't the first time the dog wandered off, but she couldn't really be bothered because she was too deep into thought... Alright...

Then the other day I was walking Jack together with my dad. We passed a house where people were sitting outside, and out of the blue their dog came running through the two hedges seperating us from eachother and decided he wanted to take a sniff of Jack. It took some effort to get the dog back to its rightful owners, but all I'm saying that either me or Jack is a dog-magnet. Nothing to do with the dress, though.

I'm really looking forward to get more of these kind of dresses. I just love them so much! And there are so many ways you can wear them. I've actually got some fabric and a pattern waiting for me (as there are many more before and after them). *frolics of into the distance*
