Katie did....

New fall line-up courtesy of Mrs. Spade. I adore the vibrant leg coverings and wonderful use of all the pieces. Can you spot the dresses as they are transformed into skirts, tops and a myriad of other outfits. In this 90 degree weather I am dying to wear my Anthro Hue tights....2 days until September begins!

Mail call....

My Vogue came today and it was the coveted thick book aka--The September Issue--I want to see this!
"September is the January in fashion."

Lab rat.....

Love this setup from D*S!! I could use my new science flasks!!

Foggy Fridays....

A foggy, Friday morn left me with thoughts of Sandburg's poem.....

The fog comes on little cat feet.
It sits looking over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

Friday fact.

Did you know? The "Mony" portion of the song refers to Mutual of New York.

Breaking Benjamins....

Artist Mark Khaisman creates this amazing art from, get this--tape, dollar bills, and coins. This certainly gives me hope for my cardboard construction yet to come....Stay tuned for my attempt...but I must admit I am semi-experienced in paper craft having produced numerous collages and a 3-D shoe flower {shoes sitting on each}. Bring it.

Let the rain fall down!

....I feel like I am sitting in the middle of a Stones concert....."And the rain fell down on the cold hard ground ." It is flooding outside and has been for quite some time. This morning I was awakened at 3am to the hard clap of thunder and rain pelting the window next to my bed, and the rain has been coming down ever since. We even managed to lose power for a few brief moments at the office and unluckily my computer lacks battery backup......ahhh the joys of a rainy day....I think rain boots would make this day instantly brighter!

Beef, it's whats for dinner!

More like chicken or fish thanks to several bouts of unexplained high cholesterol...I have food on the brain and am on a "take my lunch to work" kick thanks to my ipro, blood sugar testing and a slew of other issues......and I think this bag would be a perfect Taking Woodstock addition to the company fridge--Give Peace a Chance....or at least during your lunch break.

Happy Halloween-y {early}....

....How do you measure a year? At the moment I am far less concerned with how to measure a year and far more concerned with how to measure the current week and the near future. Two days until the weekend, a little over a week until a three day weekend, a little less than two months until a fun trip, approximately three months to Turkey Day....and {drum roll please} four months until Christmas....and somewhere in that smorgasbord of dates falls Halloween. While not at the top of my fave holiday list, Halloween holds a warm spot in my heart primarily due to Martha-style decor and dressing up. Over the years {we're talking back to grade school} I have been a mermaid, Alice in Wonderland, an American Girl doll, a cowgirl, a cat, and have the makings for many others in my box of tricks--a hippie, a Greek goddess, a flapper, and a Motley Crue of accessories for the makings of many more....but at the moment I had sworn off costumes until I spotted the Carrie tut dress, the dress that opened every show, the dress on the bus, the dress she tripped in, the dress she was splashed with water in and the dress she kept in the movie...It was the epitome of youth and fun! I do think that it might be a stretch to call myself Carrie for Halloween, but it was a the moment not dressing up is winning, followed by a pirate, followed by Carrie, followed by a 60s girl--vintage dress! Ahh well nothing to get my feathers ruffled about I still have over two months...Any suggestions?

Vote for change.

Vote for Hope.....well as of today you can vote on the new setting for the infamous Hope Diamond. Which leads me to the question, is nothing sacred anymore? Is it merely a marketing ploy by jewelry extraordinaire Harry Winston. Whatever it is--it worked one me. I have meticulously evaluated the settings and was immediately drawn to one in particular {won't say which one though}, but after reading the descriptions I am absolutely torn. Selection One reveals a journey rooted in hope, with hope holding everything in place. In Selection Two the diamonds embrace the Hope as to reveal hope as the gift that it is. In Selection Three the diamonds flow through the Hope and the opportunities that lie within hope flow out.
Which one will you vote for?
