Spices jumbled in your cupboard?

Do you love to cook? Does your family savor and delight in your cooking? Are you proud of your large spice collection?
If you're like me, you have a cabinet full of spices. They are jumbled in there, hidden behind each other. You can't find the one you want. And, some of them are so beautiful that you want to show them off.

Why stuff your spices in a cupboard? Why not buy a beautiful spice rack for your kitchen? You could install a wall spice rack, or order freestanding spice racks for your counter. Don't you think you deserve some new kitchen spice racks?

Update on Butterick B4790 Retro Dress Pattern

Well, I am so glad that I Googled this pattern! I didn't just read all the positive reviews, which is my tendency. I actually read the negative reviews, especially the ones with detailed reasons for disliking it.
I made a muslin from a slippery material I had lying around, which is a whole other topic. I sized the dress to fit my pear shape.

Then I put it on.  I had clothes underneath, not a slip, but I was swimming in it. I am 5' 3.5" which makes me petite in height. My hips are about 40," my waist is 30" and my bra size is 36B. I can wear a small top and a large bottom. I'm that pear shaped. And short. So, the volume of fabric in this dress makes it look like a robe on me. It only accentuated my wide hips, did nothing to flatten my belly, and did nothing to enhance my small chest. I looked like a girl playing dress up with her mom's clothes.

So, I scrapped this dress.

I am now onto a Retro Butterick dress pattern that is turning out very nicely.

My other kitty Dot!

We adopted Dot on December 1st 2010. Her full name  is now Miss Dot Talk-a-Lot. She lets us know, very loudly, when she wants food, which is all the time. At first she was very scared and lived in her own special room for about a month. Then she slowly came out into the house. Now she only uses the litter box in that room. She eats near Buster, our other kitty, and everything.

Here she is on our little couch. At first I didn't even see Buster hiding in all that clean laundry! Look at her stretching her little paws out at us!! She is adorable!

My kitty Buster!

This is Mr Buster Fluffy Pants. He is about 3 years old now. He loves to play with dum dum lollipops. Isn't he gorgeous?
