Happy Project Runway Day!
Y’know, there’s really nothing to add to this. The pictures do all the talking. Well, the pictures and the press release:

Of course, silly little bloggers that we are, we had to stay home and “work” so we can “pay bills” and “eat,” so we sent our Project RunGal Gotham Tomato along to take pics. Lucky for you (and us), GT is a talented photographer (we have two of her pieces hanging in our kitchen and gave another to Tom’s mother for Mother’s Day last year – GT, she LOVES it, by the way). Thank her for these fabulous pics.
