Burlap Sack Frock GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

April 1, 2009

opera house I know it's been a while since my last giveaway. I hate when I get behind. Sunday I woke up with a vicious case of something I don't know quite what. I had a high fever, night sweats, sore throat, sore neck, aches, muscle weakness, shortness of breath, the works. It really knocked me backwards.

It always takes me a couple days to wind back into gear which for some reason sets me back much farther than I'd expect. But not to worry. I still have something else planned for this week in the works. Something simple but different. I hope you like it.

I still have a few of my above mentioned symptoms and still easily become lightheaded and short of breath when I do my normal activities but I have been itching to get back to the blog. And I meant to post this yesterday but due to scheduling conflicts and sickness I had to wait until today.

However, I did managed to leave the house yesterday to buy the material for this sweet little frock. It bears a boatneck collar and delicate frayed sleeves that fall slightly off the shoulder.



opera houseMolly felt so comfy in this burlap material and even fell asleep on the sofa in the new frock while watching Sesame Street.

I think this piece would look perfect while playing in the dirt, eating a stale piece of bread, riding in an open boxcar or jumping in a three legged race!

Oh and if you haven't figured it out by now....

opera houseHappy Belated APRIL FOOLS!!!!!!!

No, I'm not that ridiculous:)

Okay, your daughter could make a paper bag look cute and apparently you can make burlap look like a dress. Very funny!!!

Marsel said... Best Blogger Tips

Ha ha...I was surprised as I read this post beause it was very unlike the classy grosgrain style we've all come to know and love...you got me hook, line, and sinker!

Thanks for the laugh.

I was going to say. That kid is adorable but the sack isn't doing anything for her.

lucky knitter said... Best Blogger Tips

Kaetlyn Wilcox said... Best Blogger Tips

There are some people, like my sisters, who are just so lovely that I say of them,"Oh, she would look beautiful in burlap." Well, Molly really DOES look beautiful in burlap, AND you're hysterical.

Julie said... Best Blogger Tips

HA! That was awesome. I was thinking, "How on earth could burlap EVER be comfortable??"

BLONDEDESIGN said... Best Blogger Tips

You never know - somebody with toooo much money may buy the dress!

sarasophia said... Best Blogger Tips

The perfect dress for all your "box car children".

(Would also double as a great pre-fairy godmother Cinderella frock)

marissa said... Best Blogger Tips

ooh my this was so funny, I was totally thinking, is she serious?

Melissa said... Best Blogger Tips

So cute and too funny. It totally reminds me of an episode of "I Love Lucy" where they are all in Paris and Ricky and Fred try to trick Lucy and Ethel with "High Fashion" of burlap sacks and feed bags as hats! Brilliant!

Susannah @ Art Nest said... Best Blogger Tips

okay, so I glanced at this giveaway the day it posted and just went back and read the full post...You got me good~ All week I was thinking, wow, Kathleen must be getting all artsy (like in the no one really understands but accepts it anyway cause of the artist kind of way) with her visions and designs. Now I feel like a fool~

I do love the photographs - she looks like the cutest orphan ever!

Becky said... Best Blogger Tips

sadly, it's still cute!!!

Kara said... Best Blogger Tips

This is hillarious! Since i didn't actually check your blog on April 1st, the whole April Fools thing went over my head until the end, and I kept thinking, "This is the first thing she has made that I have not loved! What was she thinking!? Too funny! However, your daughter still manages to look cute in this one.

AdronsCatherine said... Best Blogger Tips

ROFLOL! Love it! The best part is that your little one is pretty enough to pull it off ;o)

Hope you are feeling better!

monica said... Best Blogger Tips

I love it also. Great Aprils' Fools Day joke!! But what a cute dress! Can I still win it?

Mary-Laure said... Best Blogger Tips

What's more adorable, the little model or her dress? I wonder.

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said... Best Blogger Tips

THAT was hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!`

gahome2mom said... Best Blogger Tips

I just wanted to say ... she is absolutely adorable. What a kid! :)

fortheloveofcrafting said... Best Blogger Tips

Hilarious. I had this ugly look on my face and kept thinking, "who would want that?" I really thought it was serious. Of course since it's two years later I didn't understand the "April Fools" until I read it 4-5 times. I was just like, "I don't get it..." Very funny!
