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!

2012 Golden Globes

How is she not perfect?  Like - FRICKING WOW!


Drop-dead gorgeous Katherine McPhee, at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards.
Soon the new t.v. series "Smash" featuring McPhee will premiere. 

This "nude color" lace gown is perfection for the actress' coloring.  The style of the gown itself -  not quite fish-tail, not quite Barbie 1950's - is perfectly fitted to KM's body but not skin tight, which I detest because skin tight is so de classe'! And with her figure, she doesn't need skin tight.  Nude colored platforms (thankfully, not peep-toed!), a few rings, no other distracting bling, and a small "jeweled" clutch.  The dress shows a modest amount of perfectly proportioned legs and ankles.

Absolute perfection.  One of the most beautiful young ladies of our time - and no fake boobs anywhere in evidence!
