(wish my mom still had this dress because I'd totally wear it!)
This was Easter when I was five; probably right before church. I don't get to spend Easter with my parents this year because my car broke down and I have SO much homework to do! It's an insane amount! I am so relieved school will be over in two weeks and I can start finally realizing my bow tie collection! I've been thinking about it a lot. I really would like to incorporate bow tie head bands and also belts along with the normal bow ties- except I am thinking of using snaps now because literally NO ONE knows how to tie a bow tie! Do you know how?
have a LOOOVELY Saturday! I'll be back with Suitcase Sunday tomorrow :)
love, polly

No, I definitely cannot tie a bow-tie. Despite written instructions, three different youtube videos and someone physically holding my hands. I was trying to wrap a gift and using a bowtie instead of ribbon. I gave up and wear it dangling round my neck like Frank Sinatra at the end of a party.

Oh, you have to do a kids sized range - but maybe elasticated like those awful ties we used to wear with our school uniform! My son needs at least one bow-tie in his life.

Blue Skies,

thank you so much for your thoughts! I really appreciate people telling me their frustrations with bow ties. I might make it a special request for a real bow tie. Otherwise, it will probably just be snaps in the CB of the neck.

Cute photos! I hope you had a good Easter:)

Sorry for the late response, but to answer your question, to get the blog buttons aligned/same size, all you need to do is include: "width= 200" (or any other number you want the width to be) in html code right after the image url. So it'll look like: [<] a href=""[>][<]img border="1" src="
http://url-of-photo.png" width="200" /[>]

And for the smaller buttons to appear side by side, take half the number, minus a few pixels, to accommodate for the space in between (I made mine 98) and use that as the width.

I hope that wasn't too confusing!
Let me know if you need clarification:)
