So, have you seen Alicia Paulson's blog Posie gets Cozy? It is a great blog, sure to inspire you to throw dinner parties, sew fabulous things, and live an all around awesome life. If you really like the blog, you should check out her book (which we just happen to have). It is full of lovely things to make.
Oh--and Alicia has a Corgi dog named Clover Meadows. e and I think that is the cutest thing ever..
