My Pal Made Me a Bag!

September 16, 2012


I got this in the mail. Isn’t it beautiful! My friend Karen from ChatBugKaren made it! I have been admiring her quilt work for eons. I needed a new bag to carry my stuff to church and back. Now that I am in my mid 40’s, I figured it was time to retire my nylon […]

Damart Thermolactyl vs. Old Man Winter

Comments Off on Damart Thermolactyl vs. Old Man Winter

That isn’t the name of a new Godzilla movie, as cool as it would be. :grinny: Thermolactyl is a fiber, for a type of ladies and mens thermal underwear. Today, I am reminded of Damart’s thermolactyl on Upstate New York’s traditionally coldest day of the year. My oldest son just informed me that he’s outgrown […]

Handbag Heaven

Comments Off on Handbag Heaven

I usually don’t carry a handbag with me. You know why? Because I am so fussy that I can never find the right one! I like them lightweight, small, with just a few easy-to-zip open pockets. The only ones I find with those characteristics are purses with Eeyore or Mickey Mouse on them. :-p No […]

Prom Dresses

February 19, 2011


It’s almost that time of year for public school students. The prom. By the way, WHAT does “prom” mean?! Is it short for something? When I was in high school, a bunch of students held a “morp” which is “prom” backwards. At the morp, we had to wear unformal clothes, such as sweat pants and […]

I’ve Run Out of Hand-Me-Downs

October 4, 2010


With four kids, I have never had to deal with the problem of buying new clothing every year– the kids just passed down their clothing to the next smallest sibling. Unfortunately, the kids are older now, and my eldest two have stopped growing. Which means my seemingly endless supply of hand-me-down clothing has dwindled considerably. […]

Comments Off on Finally! Sweater Season!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Liz Claiborne New York Outlets. All opinions are 100% mine. I am very happy to see summer finally making her exit (not a graceful one, either– we broke heat records last week, sheesh). Hey summer, don’t let the door hit you on the way […]

If The Shoe Doesn’t Fit…

… SELL IT, silly! I confess— I am one of those very rare women who doesn’t like shoes. I was never a “shoe” person. My husband has to take me to the store to get new shoes. I’d heard that Imelda Marcos owned, like, 3,000 pairs of shoes. HOLY COW! She could never wear so […]

My DressBarn Gift Card Giveaway!

August 10, 2010


I recently mentioned my good experience at DressBarn when I went there to hunt for some clothes for my business trip to New York. I was really floored by the beautiful, feminine clothing at such good prices! I had always thought that “boutiques” were filled with clothes for toothpick-sized girls, and for RICH toothpick-sized girls, […]

For the Fashion-Challenged Clothing Flunkie (Yeah, That’s Me)

August 9, 2010


Eat to please thyself, but dress to please others. -Benjamin Franklin I think I have failed on both accounts. :pinch: When you go on vacation– even a short day trip– have you ever thought about what you wear? About what an eyesore your wardrobe can be sometimes? LOL.. my wardrobe is, frankly, awful. I am […]

Wool Meets the 21st Century

Comments Off on Wool Meets the 21st Century

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Ramblers Way. All opinions are 100% mine. So what do you think of when you think of wool? I am reminded of installing fiberglass insulation (something I’m doing to the home this week): horribly itchy, hot, uncomfortable. I wore wool as a kid. ONCE. […]
