Musings of a Woman Exploring the Vintage Magic in our Lives

The View from my Deck

Last summer I worked very hard in the hot sun, humid air and dusty conditions (from the roadwork on our street) to create a bit of paradise in my yard. Like many of you, I never sit down to enjoy the fruits of my labour. Rushing by watching the cats enjoy my new lounge chair rather than me made me even more tired and longing for a rest. This evening I decided to lay down on my lounge, have a glass of wine and listen to 107.3 The Wave out of Cleveland and enjoy my yard. Of course, Mr. Bengal Bigglesworth was not ready to give up his spot so we shared the evening together!

The Lady in Red

I absolutely love the colour RED! Sometimes it takes a little bit of courage to wear red. You are often noticed in the drugstore checkout line in a sea of black and brown. Red inspires! Red says I'm here! Red says pay attention. Perhaps this is why my lovely students seem to appear more attentive when I wear red even though it is hard for my seniors who are graduating in a few weeks. Nevertheless, wearing red makes me feel Great! Today I wore a very clingy (thanks Weight Watchers for the 16 pound loss) late 80s red dress with a black belt, vintage Mary Jane shoes from ThePuppetCoven and this amazingly  wonderful handknitted 20s inspired cloche from ChiCreations I received so many compliments on my hat today I just had to share this wonderful seller with you. Thank you Christine for topping off a wonderful day for this lady in red!
