Proof my path was decided long ago.
So, Maya's J.Crew knockoff scarf above. And photos I found below.
My sister got this lovely cardigan in red, with the blue scarf tied around her hood. We had a lot of reverse color coordinated sets like this.
Since I was also entirely amused to see the shots below.
My parents not only took them, and saved them, but apparently gave them to Grandma. There are a few more in this series as well, but again I edited to spare you.
(I totally remember these wine bottles with the straw on them -- My dad would melt the candles with all the different colored drips and save them. He also had a collection of the liquor containers shaped like things -- bullfighters, cars, windmills, etc. Anyone else remember those? We played with them sometimes till we broke the propeller off the Spirit of St Louis airplane. And the Metaxa bull lost a horn. Big trouble.)
Am hoping my parents are so proud with my accomplishments to date.
As for the photo above, we're having a few friends over tomorrow night and this is the cocktail I'll be making early in the evening. It's called a Northern Light, and it's super tasty.
1 oz pear nectar
1 tsp creme de cassis (or cassis liqueur)
1/2 cup chilled champagne
Combine in shaker with ice. Stir till shaker is frosty on outside. Strain and serve.
Wishing you all many lovely knits and tasty drinks in 2010!
