Ruche's Name That Dress contest thinking I would win, but didn't. Out of 700+ entries, "Lemonade & Freckles Dress" won over my imaginative, travel-inspiring, gracefully semi-pretentious submissions:
1) Cape May Tea Time Dress
2) The Inn on Fifth Dress
3) Stroll in Cape Cod Dress
No, I wasn't going to wear the dress if I'd won. I was going to get a gift card and get something else. If they made me take the dress, I would have sewn it into a pair of cute little skirts for my girls, or a pillow cover for my bed, and every time I'd throw myself onto my camel-back-shaped second-hand bed, I'd imagine myself here, here, or here. But not now.
Ruche people, this is what comes to mind when I hear "Lemonade & Freckles:"
Maybe you thought the winner meant FRECKLED LEMONADE:
- 2/3 c. lemon juice
- 3/4 c. sugar (or sugar substitute)
- 2 quarts cold water
- 1 c. sliced strawberries (fresh)
- 1 c. smashed strawberries (fresh)
Oh! The horror!
