I am a collector of a variety of things including china, silver and of course, shoes!
But one of my greatest loves is the Dept 56 holiday pieces.  I so look forward to the GD  having these in her home:

These are pieces I do not mind if GD plays with; I want her to learn to be gentle with her future heirlooms.

This time of year starts me thinking about editing - which usually causes me to find items I have not used in a while~I like this journey necklace but have not worn it in over a year:
I need to go thru more things but I normally wait until the new year:
But this photo made me go in search of this blue topaz necklace:
I am not tan - just a low light flash!  I need to wear & enjoy my stuff - 
this year was the 60th birthday so time is marching on!!
Do you plan to take inventory in the new year & find some new "old" things?

When I dress casually I still like to look put together.  So I have been thrilled to find everyday wear in velour fabric - it looks dressy & keeps me warm without too many layers.  I like this black hooded shirt in velour and when I found these flats in the same type of fabric I was thrilled.
This will look great with pants in grey, red, pine green & other basic colors.
(The shoes are from Lands End)

I collect china and especially love holiday china patterns: these are some of my Thanksgiving pieces:
They are from 2 different pattern sets, though they "go" together.
As soon as I put away the Thanksgiving pieces I will take out all of the Christmas china and get it ready for the holidays ~ polishing silver is not my favorite thing to do but a necessary evil.

The princess was here for 2 days & she is growing too fast - the day is coming when she will not let me dress her in footies - why can't she stay 4 forever?
She is so stylish - her footies match my dining room!  We both love pink!
Happy Thanksgiving

 Autumn Rain

I have been using Laura Mercier powder foundation during the summer and like it very much:
I use a powder brush for even distribution. It is light & comfortable to wear.
Now that colder temps are here I am enjoying her tinted moisturizer which also has SPF 20.  This is a light texture & is build-able ~ a very nice product.
I use Dr. Dennis Gross ferulic + retinol fibroblast anti-aging moisturizer first:
This absorbs quickly and my sensitive skin really likes it.
I need to order another one while the Sephora 20% sale is going on.

Have you started making the Thanksgiving menu?  Heaven forbid I should change mine;  the earth could stop spinning if I changed up my menu!

Pink isn't just a color ~ it's an attitude!
