5 days and counting

girl trip
girl trip - by mommydrinks on Polyvore.com

what will Victoria, Jennifer and Suzanne do when they first arrive in Florida? Will it be straight to the pool, the beach, or the bar?

Suzanne is thinking about what to pack. Her new black silk jumpsuit, her Pucci looking poolside cover up, her brand new H&M bathing suit.... and 2 vampire books.

Jennifer is thinking about freedom, and saki. She's lucky she has two friends who will keep on eye on the bar.

Victoria is stocking up on magazines to read by the pool. She's already dug out her summer clothes from the basement and is organizing her suitcase. She's prepared!

5 days to go, and the plane will take off, and the three will head south. 80 degrees and sunny. Nothing else matters. No laundry to do, floors to sweep, paint or mop, kids to put to bed and no getting up early. And no censoring their adjectives and verbs.

Freedom of responsibility for 3 days.

she wore feathers in her hair

I have recently purchased two feather hair pieces. One Clip and one Headband. I found both off of Etsy.

The first one from Gaia Trove. A handmade headband!

here are some from the site:


and now mine... Lovely!






Next up, a Vintage Peacock Feather Hair Piece from NevaPlume.



oh there's more! I covet these ones as well. All the pieces are reasonable priced. And the end result is gorgeous!





Enjoy!

the dog ate my computer...

naw..

but she is a darling.



Just needed a quick break... I'm in the middle of a web design project (ya, I do have a job!) and I haven't been able to post anything 'meaningful' this week. Oh, except the last post, which I guess was Sunday night! Boy am I hard on myself!!

soon... soon!

I want some black - eyed suzies!

I don't know where to begin! I have a small doll collection myself. And I have bought and sold over the years. I look for special dolls, ones that have been customized, or I have dolls from my childhood. (They are all fairly hidden in my closet in a special place, as they freak the hell out of Mark)

I'm impressed with certain doll artists, that have the ability to bring something different, something with expression to the art.

Just the other day, I stumbled across Sarah, from Montreal who creates these wonderful, soulful dolls that reach out and touch your heart with their eyes.

You can find her, and read more about her on her her blog, Black Eyed Suzie, or you can peruse her dolls for sale at her etsy store online.

But before you go, have a look below, at just a sample of her creations, and this lovely video all about her, and her process!

a rose without a thorn

I was digging around reading some news, when I got distracted by this NYTimes article on the fall 2009 D&G collection during Milans Fashion.

Rightfully so, it compares the Showtime Original series, "The Tudors" to the D&G collection. Heavy on Satin, Velvet, Brocades, silk doublets and billowing sleeves.

I think I agree!

gloomy, bored and unfocused...

so what better way to spend my time than digging up old projects and sharing them with you.

Have a happy monday!

finding my roots...

ok, well not entirely true.. actually continuing to cover my roots! Which I believe are a lovely combination platter of silver gray and dishwater brown. But I once was a platinum naturally, and then artificially. In my 20's, 30's and now, 40's. I love playing with the color. And even now, it's not quite right... needs a bit of toning.

Bored, unreasonably bored, for no reason, because I have so much work to do, that I find myself procrastinating and rifling through photos, and found some earlier documentation of the platinum variety.

Thought I'd share them.

early on, the natural. This is about when my brother referred to me as "Frisbee head", - 1968


around 25, in Nice, France, very Annie Lenox (or billy idol) - 1990


6 years later. Very inspiring. - 1996


a year later... at my wedding. - 1997



Today. Right now. This minute. - 2009

pursing around...

from my collection of purses from New York, circa late 90's.


The following two purses are from TG170, from the Lower East Side.

first up, "Brown Pleather bag, circa '97, TG170. Purchased from my new husband!

then came the "Round Asian". Also, gift from Mark.

Then along came Shanghi Tang! This would have been around 99, back when it was still kind of fresh.

now here is a purse, I found, in the lower east side. A vintage piece from the '70s.
I promptly named it Horsebuckles! And I purchased this baby.

and this baby, came from somewhere also in the lower east side, but as it was a gift from one of my girlfriends, I don't know where it came from! I call it the ZigZag!
