That's what I'm talkin about

A friend and I actually had a similar idea to this and I started gathering the info maybe a year ago? This is brilliant, but unfortunately there is only one available for So. Cal and the Bay. Let's re-hatch this plan! krankpress

Baby it's cold outside




since we're getting hit with storms finally here on the west coast, all I can think about is being cozy... which somehow I always think of this specific vintage sweaters and fondue party picture. Sadly all of my coats are ill fitting these days- too big or too small. Not to mention the top coat I was wearing today got a rip in the arm when I fell and skinned my knees. Of course that is another story...


always love the tweed...





the big buttons, collar detail and it's pretty classy.



This is great in either white or blue

I'll add it to the list


Sometime I'm hoping sooner than later I'll be breaking out that sewing machine once again. I'm hoping I may even be able to whip up one of these babies. I cannot ever find a nice A-line/slightly flared skirt! Straight or pencil skirts leave me looking top heavy, and bubbly ones make me look at least 10 lbs heavier than I am. But this one looks just about right... apperantly the pattern can be found in here: http://www.interweavestore.com/Sewing/Magazines/Stitch-2008.html

I've managed to catch a cold and spent all day yesterday hidden under blankets and trying to sleep as much as I could. Today I'm out and about with the living, but can't wait to bury myself back into bed. My mother has been on the hunt for me for days. She even managed to bother my husband at work because I hadn't repied to her emails. Am I the only one who loves her mother dearly but she also makes me want to hit my head against a wall? I think I need a mother vacation. Ironically she was out of town on vacation for a week, but thanks to me introducing her to technology she still managed to talk to me far too much while being gone holed up in the snow! *sigh*

Today was the beginning of one of my new goals- organize and purge. In the process I went through my old VHS tapes I so lovingly taped and logged and I could not resist popping a few in and taking a trip back to the mid nineties. Maybe in the year of 2010, the nineties aren't quite as painful as they used to be. Enjoy this, one of my favorite clips I have...
