So I have a cousin that sends cards for every occasion. Not only remembers, but sends cards – without fail, for holidays, birthdays and even anniversaries. Must be hereditary as her mother is exactly the same. She even sent me an email to apologize for sending Christmas cards late this year, it still arrived before New Years…..I knew there was something I meant to do in December…. I on the other hand am about as good with cards as I am with emails. I think about it, have the best … [Read more...]
Most trends come and go pretty quickly and I don’t tend to comment too much... [although the 80’s resurgence is overstaying it’s welcome a bit, and really, if you are old enough to have worn the stuff the first time around, tread lightly on this go.] So I snickered quietly at Jeggings last winter [you know, the leggings PRINTED with pockets, seams and a zip flap to look like jeans], rolled my eyes silently at the black canvas sneakers with black socks and dresses last summer, and just shook … [Read more...]
What’s it all mean?
I bought a grown-up wallet the other day.

Cue operatic voice…
...eBaaaaaa-yyyyyyyyy. Well, I just broke the seal and made my first purchase – I know, how did I survive this long with out it, right?! That said, it was done in a truly risk adverse fashion as a ‘buy now’ – not wanting to get pipped at the post. Lovely isn’t she? Borrowing my accessories already though, and in true coordinating fashion, even matches my new $18 chair from Salvos. .............. We have named her Eleanor [the mannequin not the chair of course, we aren't nearly crazy … [Read more...]
