Confession Friday: I Long To Be A Fashion Designer

crepescouture1

It’s true. Ever since my trip to Italy, it’s been nagging at me. I’ve been designing secretly for two years now, but I’ve finally mustered up to the courage to say it: I want to be a fashion designer. I want to have a line of Crepes Couture. I have, many times now, improved my FODs’ clothing, and I think I have a real knack for it. Let me show you some of this season’s designs:

Thumb holes are very in right now.

These are dadFODs favorite shorts. I improved airflow and convenience with this cleverly placed aperture. I call these "Peephole pants."

I have also been dabbling in home design. Here’s part of the new table-wear line I’m working on:

Carefully placed cisterns for food to fall directly into, keeping your linens clean and fresh.

What do you think? Do you love it? Would you wear my designs?

What’s your secret today? Confess.

Crepes.

PS Don’t forget to enter my Gatti Di Roma Calendar giveaway! It ends soon! And a special thanks to Henri, le Chat Noir, for sharing our Adoption Champion photos yesterday. We got a record number of visitors to our site and Siobhan has a great start at finding the perfect home!

 

Bachelorette of the Week: Siobhan Le Fay

Today’s Bachelorette is special for a few reasons. One, she is one of the Adoption Champion photo models, with portraits taken by Victoria Sprung. Two, she’s amazing. And three, she’s representing today all of the kitties and pups that need a home on this Remember Me Thursday.

Ms. Siobhan Le Fay, Ladies and Gentleman.

Ms. Siobhan Le Fay, Ladies and Gentleman.

When Siobhan was a wee kitten, she was removed from a feral colony and sent to a specialist because of her hind leg deformities. Now, please note you can’t even see the deformities in this photo, that’s how little they matter to Siobhan. They mattered to the doctors, though, when they suggested that Tree House euthanize¬† Ms. Le Fay. Alas, Tree House was not deterred, and with a partial amputation and rehabilitation program, Ms. Le Fay is now able to walk with a splint and is ready for adoption! She will continue to need some rehabilitation therapy but is ready for anything else that life will throw at her, which will hopefully be a lovely catnip pillow and a sun puddle in which to nap.

If you’re interested in Siobhan Le Fay, please contact Tree House. It won’t be long before this beauty is whisked away to a home, never to be adoptable again. And don’t forget Coda Coda, one of our other Adoption Champion kitties and a medical miracle!

If you can’t adopt today, please light a candle, either real or virtual, for Siobhan and all the animals like her awaiting their forever homes. Many beautiful pets have died because they weren’t adopted. Siobhan is lucky enough to be at a no-kill rescue like Tree House, but many others aren’t as fortunate. Spread the word and “opt to adopt.” Many millions of tiny lives depend on it.

Love,

Crepes.

An outtake from our photo shoot: Siobhan was wondering why momFOD was hiding down there. She wanted so much to include her in the photos, too. Such generosity!
