woof wednesday : spice pups

a very close friend of mine had to put her family golden retriever down today :( such a sad time to cope with. Brandy was a very sweet dog with a lot of personality, she had to with being in the house with her fun loving family. Brandy had 4 human sisters that kept her social & dressed her up often :)

when Lizzie passed away (our golden who was 8 years old), we grieved by getting 2 puppies within a week. we loved Lizzie and were thankful for her, but needed to keep the puppy love around.

meet the spice pups. 9 golden retriever/labrador mixes, located in Sanford, Florida:


Sugar, female (this one can be sent to my boyfriend for my Christmas present.)
and the brother, who cannot sit still!

"no paw left behind"

It's our mission!

jcpenney

 if you are my close friend, you know the secret love affair I have with Jc Penney. GRANTED, you have to find a good one (Aventura, Florida... Culver City, CA) to find the Best selection (and limited quantity goods, collections).

last night I was picking up my jeggings (do not hate) that I bought (2 for $13!) at SiteToStore free shipping! & I walked past these adorable watches that caught my eye. sadly, they are not available online at the moment.

the first one took me back to my childhood when I had a watch very similar. & while I will never ever buy a watch to replace my Michele two-tone diamond deco (I am proud of my sole piece of fine jewelry that I purchased for myself), this might make it's way into my collection of fun jewelry.

currently adding these to my wish list: (kind of wish they came in GOLD, shocking I know.)

TODAY! 12/10/10

woof wednesday : eat * pray * love luigi

this past weekend we rented Eat-Pray-Love which was way better than I had heard it was! it left us both really wanting yummy real pizza, real mozzarella, fresh tomatoes.. etc.. (you know the scene I am talking about from the movie)

So today, embracing my lack of Italian heritage.. meet:
Luigi
Chihuahua/Pug Mix
La Habra, California
"I was born September 22 to a marvelous little chihuahua named Mia. She gave birth to 5 of us, and we are all to precious and cuddly. My mama was found wandering around a parking lot scared and pregnant. She was lucky to find by a cuddly Canine volunteer who rescued her! I have been in an awesome foster home since birth, with kids and other dogs so I am very social. I would love to be your new best friend and lap warmer. Will you be my forever home and give me lots of love?"
Interested in adopting Luigi?
ps the website is dangerous - too many cute puppies!

sparkler wear

As much as I love Christmas outfits, I really LOVE New Years attire! It is the total complete opportunity to wear sparkles, sequins, glitter, etc. 5 years ago I got this necklace at a party, and somehow have kept it through 5 New Years!
elegant, I know. :)








finish off your look with:

just do not wear too many sparkles at once, we do not need more than one christmas tree at the holiday party. (I am talking to myself here too).

inspiration

sure boss-lady, I will run to Michael Levine to buy you a hook and eye!

because, secretly, I obsess over pattern & fabric & potential. one day, when I have my own home and can decorate how I'd like, I will fly back to LA, go to this fabric store and pick out fabrics for: pillows, upholstery, duvets, draperies, place mats, aprons, gifts, little girls dresses, anything & everything that can be fabric.

it starts with the entrance: (sorry all these photos are from my iPhone, before the kind lady said.. "sorry mi amiga, no pictures allowed".. oops!, fortunately i got all the pictures i needed just in time!)

fabric pouring out of wall mounted paint cans
 throw pillow perfection? i think so!
 feathers, flowers, crystallized appliques.
 more geometric goodness
 baubles! details are the most important & the best way to personalize.
 not sure what i'd do with zippers in every color, but the selection was picture-worthy!
 yes please.
 collars!
 leather scraps for cheap! picture frame decoupage? for making THIS!
 & more geometric pattern goodness.

I will say, I am thankful I have no more costume parties/socials to go to! dangerous.
