Hola!

It's COLD here. Cold and windy. But the Sun has been out for the past 2 days so it's bright, and that helps me to bear the cold and the short days. Only 15 more days to Winter Solstice, and then each day, a few more minutes of daylight will magically begin to be added, and even though the cold and snow will continue, the "worst" will be over because I know we are over the hump and headed toward the Spring Equinox.

Meanwhile, I am busy decorating the tree. I dug out an old collage of photos from the former Maison Newton (above). Gosh, that was a beautiful fireplace. My current gel fuel fireplace is great, but no match for that large and lush gas fireplace in my former home. In my case, downsizing meant not only much less square footage and a single story (which IS nice), but no fireplace until I purchased my gel fuel fireplace. I love it, but there was only one wall I could put it on, and this current living room is much smaller than my former living room, so I sized the fireplace accordingly. (It was also much less expensive and did not need to be installed by professionals).

Yesterday I womaned up and muscled, huffed, puffed, cussed some, breathed heavily and heaved mightily to get my Christmas tree up the basement stairs and dragged into the living room, and then into position in front of the picture window overlooking the front of the house. Whew! Quite the work-out. But I wasn't ready this year to switch to a "single woman of a certain age" (4 foot tall) tree. Maybe next year...NAH!

All the International Vogue Editors Will Hang Out Together for the Very First Time Next Month October 11, 2011

This apparently unprecedented moment of unity will take place at Japan Fashion's Night Out, which will be hosted by Vogue Nippon editor Mitsuko Watanabe in Tokyo on November 5. British Vogue reports that this is the very first time that Alexandra Shulman, Anna Wintour, Franca Sozzani, and Emmanuelle Alt have banded together for a social function. Hopefully the Milan scheduling debacle will be straightened out by then, because otherwise there might be some tension in the room. (On the other hand, if things are all resolved on that front, it'll be super laid-back and no one will judge each other and everybody will do shots together, like normal Vogue parties!)


I know that Anna Wintour is NY Vogue and Franca Sozzani is Vogue Italia.  Evidently Shulman is British Vogue.  Does that mean Alt is Paris Vogue?  I don't know how old Sozzani is, but she has not aged very well - unless she's 100.  I read recently that Anna Wintour is 62.  She looks great - wonder if she's had "work" done on that face?  She hasn't changed her hairstyle in about 40 years.  No wierdo hairdos for that lady, nosiree.  She knows what suits her and she keeps it. 

Some of the comments!  LOL!  I thought this one was hilarious:

The cast of Sex and the City have really let themselves go, haven't they??
