Make It Work!

Oh, brother.  This is the second time I have tried to upload a picture from Photobucket to display a picture of Project Runway and I still couldn't make it work.  This is after my daughter showed me how and I thought I got it for sure.  Oh well.  Maybe next time.  Or maybe I should just paint my own picture...idea..:):)
Anyway, it's already Sunday and I didn't even comment on one of my favorite programs, Project Runway. I was reminded by Jenn of Noodle and Lou Studio who wrote me a comment and said how she also loves this program.  I was so excited to see the program start its 5th season, but yes, as Jenn mentioned, all the tablecloth outfits were a little boring.  But the winning outfit was really cool and innovative.  
The designers had 30 minutes to grab stuff from a market with which to make an outfit.  Too many designers picked tablecloths, which made it safe and boring, but the winning designer made a full skirt out of vacuum cleaner bags and dyed them with these drip designs.  I thought, omg, is she kidding?  But it turned out great.  The top of the dress was made by putting two coffee filters with the same drip design over the model's chest.  Sounds crazy, but it worked.  It was a design you could actually see someone wearing.
I have to say, I sure wish I looked like those models, but, at the same time, I wouldn't like knowing that my boobs fit into a couple of coffee filters!
I guess it shows there truly are things about ourselves we should appreciate and love!:):)
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
