So Me


Have you ever seen something that just screams your name? Your heart starts racing and you get all jumpy and excited?


That's how I felt when I saw this outfit. No, no, no...not hers, his. 
I would wear every stitch he has on and be happy as a clam. OK, I might change the shoes but don't you love it??!! The blue oxford shirt keeps it from looking to "Mongolian goat herder".


Striped shirt, chunky necklace...yep, that works for me. 


Colorful braids and a statement skirt? I've been loving this look since I first laid eyes on Pippi Longstocking - my first fashion idol. 


Tassels and fringe...



And a whole lot of this!!!!
Want to see more? All photos from here.

After repeatedly looking at these photos I have decided my style is pig-tailed, goat herder who loves over sized accessories. Love, love, love. Does it appeal to you?

 I am off to look for a furry, black, goat vest, Guatemalan sash and gigantic tassels...I'll report back soon.

Pillow Talk


Have you seen the new House Beautiful? It' s a good one.



This Bengal Bazaar pillow caught my eye..



You may remember seeing the same pillow in several pictures form Bill's office. 


I love how it looks against the dark walls.
I needed to get a more recent picture since I have recently added another pillow and a throw...

I got my pillows from Etsy...
And if you are looking for fabulous fabrics I highly recommend..


Margaret at Southend Design was wonderful.

Sharon Stone - Better Than Ever




Can't wait to pick up a copy of the March issue of Shape magazine with Sharon Stone on the cover. Looking pretty darn good for 55. She looks better at 55 than I did at 35 - my 30's were my puffy years, you know, before I cut back on the carbs.





I don't know what she's doing but I am going to find out.
As long as it doesn't involve getting up too early to exercise, cutting out margaritas or staying out of the sun. Otherwise I am in!

Wrap It Up

Don't you think half the fun of gift giving is the wrapping?



This wrapping paper just makes me happy!! 



I found it at Homegoods and they had all kinds of crazy good designs.
 I may go back...I may need more...

Yellow Dot Takeout Boxes, Set of 4

And speaking of cute wrapping I am loving these Chinese take out boxes...
The little itty bitty one is so cute!!!


Blue Moon Dot Takeout Boxes, Set of 4


I have a fun gift idea that goes well with these boxes, I'll share later but if you want to pick some up you can find them at World Market.

That's all for now, hope you had a good week.
I can't believe it is already Friday!!!
