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!

H&M Premieres 2011 Christmas Collection

Tired, tired, tired.  If you follow Chess Goddess and Everything you know what I'm wrapped up in these days.  Seems my obsession with attempting to turn the corner on my fashion blindness has temporarily (I hope) turned into a Christmas decorating frenzy.  Geez!  Frankly, darlings, I'm too damn old for this kind of jazz to be happening.  Where is all of this "fuzzy interference stuff" in my brain coming from?  Have I become - gulp - a Pod Person, without knowing it???

Got an email today from Vogue and it's premiere time for H&M's Christmas Collection.  I only had time to gander this - and it's love, love, love!  I don't know how long that link will be good for - you may want to visit soon!

$14.95 for this Kimona.  Yeah, I got the price right.
The colors are fabulous, the price is FABULOUS.  The sizes - from XS to L -- don't know if L would be L enough for me.  This is so beautiful, it could be framed as its own work of art.
