I am grabbing a minute of time to blog cause I miss it, miss you all. It seems like days/weeks since I really put my heart and soul into a post...and it ain't gonna be today either because I am in the midst of the dreaded "change clothes closets from winter to summer" misery.
Here are bags of sweaters and pants and jackets and more sweaters and other stuff waiting in one of those suck-the-air-out bags. I love those when they work, it's like magic seeing everything go so flat. I have been doing this since last night and have a big bag of goodies to give away.
But the weekend was lovely. First off (drum roll please) I met KJ for dinner on Friday night. We met halfway between our houses for a lovely Italian dinner in a delightful restaurant. We sat and talked...and talked...and talked. For hours, finally paying the bill and leaving about 2 hours after I thought we would leave. It truly was a lovely evening...and no..I don't have a photo. And I had brought my camera...there was just too much talking going on to stop and record the event.
KJ had hit alot of traffic trying to meet me, and was about 1/2 hour late. Sooo....I stopped at a shoestore and bought these sneakers. I couldn't resist the rhinestones. I know that they are really for 14 year olds, but I love them...and had to have them..so there.
The area where we were meeting is famous for antique stores so I got to the area early and stopped at a few stores. I was looking for a different piece of jewelry to wear to a wedding in a few weeks and found this celluloid flower necklace. I love it, it's so different !
The flowers are a bit soft-like but not completely squishy. It's from the 40's and I really think it's so much fun. Now, I will have to wear a black outfit or find something that matches this necklace. Does anyone with sense do that? Match your clothes to a necklace? I have a few weeks to organize myself for this task...but now...BACK TO THE CLOSET CLEANING BINGE!!!!
