Mothers Day!





Let's Hear it for Motherhood!






We are all mothers both female and male.  We all have mothers.  You are a mother.  You may have a family or not. You might have given birth or not.  However, we are all mothers to every creature in our orbit.  If you are lucky, you give yourself to others everyday, to your pets, to your friends, to your children and to those we love.  Each day is a gift to be cherished.  So, on this special day, may all of us mothers take a moment and notice the beauty around.  You are blessed. You truly are no matter your circumstances. Do something nice for yourself.  Buy some flowers, eat cake, give a hug, smile and be thankful.   If your mother is still with you then give her a hug and thank her for your life and all she has given you.  And, let's remember the mothers who have passed for they breathed life into you and gave you so much.  They too reside in your heart.  Ah, it is a glorious day. 








Happy Mother's Day!

Monday's Favorite Things - The Blazer

Classic is KeyL'Agence
Recently, I cleaned out my closet and donated seven bags of apparel.   The items ranged from high quality constructed blazers that I have owned over a decade along with other clothes that no longer fit.  It was difficult to let go of so many beautiful and well cherished pieces.  However, I know someone out there will love the blazers, skirts and suits that were donated.  They will be used rather than languishing in my closet and collecting dust. 
At the end of Finding Nemo (2003).   Nemo and his pals state, "Now What?"
When you are done purging the aftermath in a wardrobe can be unnerving.  You may find yourself in Nemo's predicament and think "Now What?""Where are my blazers for those occasions I need them?" Of course, over the last 8 months we have been primarily house bound and without need of fancy apparel.  For me, I have lived in shorts, tees, jeans, cashmere pullovers, tennis shoes and boots.  My lovely blazers were neve…

Monday's Favorite Things - The Bootie

What I love this Week?- Bootie by Aquatalia"A woman with good shoes is never ugly." Coco Chanel


Rain, cold, wind and breezy days has spread across the Pacific Northwest.  Thus, sweaters, jeans, wool coats, leather gloves, boots and booties are making a fast entrance to daily life.   It is an exciting time of the year when the world changes to the glorious colors of fall ending the days of sun and warmth.  We eagerly pull out beautiful fabrics and exquisite apparel slated for the cold fronts on the horizon. 
My favorite boot brand is Aquatalia.   I love their tall boots and booties for the rain infused months that lay ahead.   The company is based in San Francisco, California.  All the boots are crafted in Italy, with meticulous care towards Italian shoemaking.  The fit is superb and comfort exceptional right out of the box.  Additionally, Aquatalia is waterproof and stain resistant even in suede.   Now, I would not wear these beautiful numbers during a snowstorm or on a day wh…
