I just love watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade. As a child born in the late 50s, I so looked forward to watching the parade with my father. We would get up each morning and he would make me coffee 1/2 coffee 1/2 milk. We would watch the parade together. Now, here I am, in my 50s still watching the parade. My children never liked it very much nor my husband. For all you parade lovers out there, please join my contest. I have made several parade sets. Please make one, too! No limit!

My Polyvore friend, MelissaKaye, makes awesome Mosaic sets! I aspire to be as good as her. I can't seem to line up to make the mosiacs and mine look more like collages. I made a collage on "Some People Eat to Live but I Live to Eat!" Make a set, either collage or mosaic, with all your favorite food groups. You can even add fashion if you want.

It's Simple----Dear Polyvore Fans....
It's been a long time since the Historical Group has had a contest. I have been spending all my time at the movies (i.e., my other Polyvore handle carol@themovies). I came back to my Historical group to make a contest. I have suddenly become inspired by old sewing patterns. Make a set using a sewing pattern and design brand new clothes to match. I've had fun with this...hope you do, too!
