Being the fashion diva that I am, I just love designer clothes…you know, to wear to the grocery store or to drop my Daughter off at dance. Nothing like a special hair-do or designer jewelry to perk up picking my Son up from marching band!

Seriously though, I have never been a huge fan of the whole “fashion collections” hullabaloo. I did just stumble across something that I am finding, though absolutely not practical for me, is none the less fascinating and lovely.

While blog hopping I ran across this:

“This” is the “Chanel pre-fall 2011 Byzance Collection.”

If only this was a “V” neck:Chanel Pre-Fall 2011

Here’s a lovely “classic black” dress:Chanel Pre-Fall 2011

Now just because I can’t see myself wearing the lovely Greek looking clothes or jewelry doesn’t mean that it is all too fancy for my daily life. Take a closer look at those GORGEOUS shoes!!! I can definitely see myself wearing those with summer clothes! In fact, I MUST have shoes like that! I LOVE them!!! Of course I won’t be buying these as they range from $130 to $300, but I do like these styles:

Paul Green 'Estavan' SandalStuart Weitzman 'Donuts' SandalJeffrey Campbell 'Emma' Sandal

These were the most reasonably priced ones I found at a mere $80:

Seychelles 'Araxi' Sandal

I’m sure, though, this spring and summer there will be plenty of knock offs in the stores. Can’t wait to see them!

Rudolph & The Grinch…

Earlier this week my Daughter was in a Christmas dance recital.  The girls did a really good job considering they didn’t start rehearsing until mid-October.  Little Miss M played Cindy Lou Who in The Grinch and the Doll in Rudolph.  I won’t subject you to the whole thing, but thought I would post my favorite part from Rudolph. My Daughter is the one in the dress:

Some Gifts…

…I made for my Mom for her Birthday:

A wool felt candle mat024 

A Christmas ornament


A wool felt gift tag that I embroidered a message on the back of


Baby Girl made her the cutest pencil organizer and she did it all by herself!


I think it was a very nice birthday celebration!  We had a wonderful dinner (made by me) of lasagna made like my Grandmother used to make it, salad, bread sticks and a lovely pineapple upside down cake for desert.  A very enjoyable day!
