Silk and Honey

Well, my darling friend, Phenella…that I’ve dubbed PhenPhen and she lets me! I think she is simply adorable. She offered up a Challenge in response to my Challenge to Challenge post. If you haven’t already guessed, she’s given me honey and a silk scarf. Ha! Tricked you, you thought it was just silk, didn’t you? Nope, she was a bit more specific and let me tell you, the my mind went straight to the bedroom. Then I started thinking how sticky honey is and what a mess that would be. Honey would completely ruin a silk scarf! I imagine that PhenPhen was having tea, looked around and just tossed me two things she saw. *giggles* Well, my photo features silky textures and honey colors…so there you have it. My very weak attempt at tying honey and a silk scarf together.

Christmas Collab with Chickadee

I’ve been wanting to do more collaborations with other bloggers for ages. As a blog manager, I have access to dozens of truly talented bloggers that represent similar if not the same brands as myself. When United Colors released his last two gowns, Chickadee and I knew instantly that this was our collaboration waiting to happen. I just so happened to have a party scene already set up from a previous post (you’ll find the link for that in the details below the photo), so we just needed a few friends for a the background. We were fortunate that Ty and Dusty were will to step in to model for us rather last minute.  Tis the season for all sorts of parties from casual to formal. Don’t struggle too hard on the formal, because UC has truly outdone himself with the details and the fit on these two gowns. Click here for Chickadee’s post   and see her view on our little gathering.
Happy Holidays to all and more importantly…Happy shopping!♥

Strawberry Tarts and A Teapot

Another gauntlet was thrown after reading my Challenge to Challenge was issued. This one came from the very lovely and sweet, Loly Hallison. She had no way of knowing that these two items actually do belong together in a personal memory of my mom. One that I will never forget and it will always bring a smile to my face. It happened years ago, when I was still in my 20s.

My mother and I would meet up about once a month. We’d spend the day together, usually we’d shop until we dropped. This one morning I’d picked her up and we grabbed these amazing little strawberry tarts at a local bakery. I wonder if that place is still open. I’ll have to Google that later. Anyway, we’re sitting in the mall parking lot,  eating our strawberry tarts, and talking. Our conversation turns to death, as it so often does with me, and my mother began telling me that she wanted to be cremated and her ashes sealed in a tea pot. I agreed to her request under one condition and it was that condition that had us looking like two crazy, drugged up teenagers.
Do not come back and haunt me by singing, “I’m a little teapot short and stout….”

Roses in the Snow

Believe it or not, this post springs from the Challenge to Challenge. Lizzy Plantagenet gave me a rosebush and snow. For this challenge, I kinda cheated, but it IS my blog afterall…lol. Seriously though, this reminded me of a song that I hadn’t thought about in ages. It’s one of those haunting songs that stays with you long after you listen to it.

Nico – Roses in the Snow

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently, you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
And you know that it was like this before we had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
Until you feel this way

With every moon
It is as though you’re getting closer to your soul
And then you go alone, and with no fear
Then you will know that it was like this before he had to go
And you will find that you were blind
Until you saw these lights
Glowing in your nights

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
But you know it was like this before he had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
If you don’t know
And there are roses growing in the snow

Love Cats

“We’re so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!
Oh you know that I’d do anything for you
We should have each other to tea huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up by the fire
And sleep for awhile
It’s the grooviest thing
It’s the perfect dream
Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I’ll show you in spring
It’s a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats”

Crazy Weather

My friend, Adalynne, responded to my Challenge to Challenge post. She suggested snowflakes and rainbows. My first response was, “You hate me!” I haven’t been into rainbows since I was a child and they are generally associated with unicorns. I’ve never liked unicorns…ever. I thought about it for a moment then I realized she was merely referring to the weather in Alabama. You see, she lives about 30 minutes away from me and we experience the same weather. If the weather man so much as suggests snow, the stores are evacuated of all their bread, milk, and eggs. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why everyone wants to make french toast when they think there’s a snowstorm coming, but that’s what happens. What’s even funnier is that it rarely does snow and when it does it melts by noon…that’s when we get the rainbow. Thus, snowflakes and rainbows is a perfect way to describe Alabama weather. In your face, AdyCakes! *giggles*

Menus & Electric Heaters

This place didn’t have an extensive menu, but what they did have was simply delicious. It was a food truck permanently parked on a small peninsula off the coast of Achill Island What she loved the most was that they has hooked up small electric heaters between all the tables so even on a cool day like today, you could eat outdoor and be comfortable. She was especially grateful for this today as she planned to meet her dear friend, Grace, for lunch. It had been far too long since they had sat down and dished.

Vacation Conundrum

She’d been thinking about it quite a bit and had decided for their anniversary trip, she’d wanted to go on a ski trip. She’d even gone out and bought an entire ski suit, complete with mask. When she told him about it at breakfast the next morning, he chuckled as he slid two tickets to Egypt across the table, “I was going to take you to see the great pyramids, one of the eight wonders of the world.”
She looked at him sideways, “I thought there were only  seven wonders of the world.”
He looked at her lovingly, “There were until the day you were born.”
She laughed, “Sweet talk isn’t going to get you out of this ski trip.”
He grinned as he passed her the hotel pamphlet with a pair of diamond earring, “Well, unless you plan on skiing down the pyramids, this will be the only ice you’ll see this year.”
She giggled as she puts the earrings on, “Yes, Sir! Egypt it is!”

Rabbits and a Paper Fan

Another challenge was presented after my post: Challenge to Challenge. This one came from my adorable elven friend, Luca. I wonder what she was looking at to make her think of those two things. I should have asked her to clarify which kinds of rabbits, because she and I are like a couple of 12yr girls when we get together. We’ll giggle and make everything dirty. So, I can easily imagine this being about the sex toy kinda rabbits. However, since she didn’t clarify and the first thing that popped in my head was little white rabbits…that’s the direction I’m going.
I thought a bit about white rabbits and paper fans. I wondered why I automatically think of white rabbits and whether or not that makes me a racist in the bunny world. As for the paper fans, I thought of the type I use to make with accordion style folded paper when I was little girl sitting in a church that was so old, it didn’t have central air and the stained glass windows didn’t open. (Yes, I grew up going to church.) This led me on a rather long trail of thought regarding things I used to believe in, like Santa. I remember being about 4yrs old, living in Germany. I had this huge plate glass window in my bedroom and what I’m sure now was a falling star, I just knew I saw Santa flying across the sky.
It’s almost as if Luca knows me and how my mind works…jumping from one thought to another as memories unfold. It’s funny, the older I get the more often this happens. It makes me grateful to have some pretty cool memories to rely on.

Is that Santa
Do I see Santa?
