"Fashion fades, only style remains the same."
Somewhere between Piaget's Pre-Operational thought and memorizing the immunization schedule for normal healthy children I decided to take a break. Well really I decided to procrastinate, I mean is it really necessary for a nurse to know every immunization a child should have by the age of 2 years? Honestly I bet the doctor doesn't, isn't that why he keeps the big chart on the wall in exam room? Ha! I bet you all thought that was for your information, how wrong you were!
Well my aimless wandering through cyberspace in search of something that would nudge me out of this blah feeling it happened. I found myself staring at beautiful lace, peek-a-boo cut outs, capped sleeves and nipped in waist lines. I was in heaven! No I am not speaking of any designers spring line, I only wish! I happened to find a gold mine of vintage patterns hovering out there on the Internet just begging to be adopted.
