Drowning in nylon!

Good morning lovelies!

This fine, fabulous morning I had the house to myself, so I decided that, instead of simply slipping into my usual suntan L'eggs Sheer Energy, I'd wear something a little more special today.  I took out my secret stash of hosiery, dumped it on the bed, and picked through all the pretty patterns and gorgeous colors before making my selection: super-chic, black, spiral-striped hose from Nordstrom.  (Remind me to get a picture of these beauties for you!)

Anyway, looking at the dozens of hose spread across the bed, I was reminded of a picture that Katie shared back in late December for a caption contest.  I was happy with my final product - and the followup cap I made - and wanted to share them with you here while I finish up some new stuff.

So what do you say: do you dare to share what you like to wear??
Ciao! Elise

These are a few of Katie Mills' favorite things!

I met Katie Mills a few years ago on Rachel's Haven.  After learning we both shared a love (or is it an obsession??) with all types of hosiery, we quickly became good friends.  She is a gorgeous girl and a talented writer & cap designer, with 99.999% of her caps including hosiery.  If you haven't done so yet, do yourself a favor and check out her sexy blog: katiemills570.blogspot.com.

Anyway, recently Katie posted that she was feeling a bit overwhelmed by "real life" and needed to take a break from capping.  I think we've all been there at some point, so I decided to create a cap for her to let her know she's not alone, and (hopefully) to pick up her spirits.  But by the time I was able to finish my cap, she was back on the blog and as good as ever.  Here's the cap:

Katie - I can't wear a pair of polka dot pantyhose without thinking of you.  (But after making this cap, I think my thoughts are going to be a little more...intimate.)  I hope this cap put a smile on your face!  Have a wonderful day.
