A Christmas Favorite

I love this house, it comes with years of childhood memories, my nieces and my own kids.. Each year it becomes a haunted house during halloween...

and a Gingerbread house at Christmas.
But the kids are getting older and I am the one left loving it..
It might be its last year =(

Happy Wednesday..

Greater than Gatsby!

The Movie to watch out for this coming Christmas is The Great Gatsby with Leonardo di Caprio.




But what happens when you get invited to a big party with this theme in mind!? Oh my!
One day before the event, I find myself digging in my closet for something appropriate to wear.

And this is what I found...much to my surprise, I actually was able to put a look together!


 don't ask how I did the hair(diy) I was surprised as well... some twists and pins and Viola!
Here we are roaring! Greater than Gatsby!

Happy Weekend! <3

Well hello there Amy!

As I was fixing, sorting over the weekend, I found a very old book, -- published March 1956! wow!

it may be my moms or even my grandma....



Amy Vanderbilt (July 22, 1908 – December 27, 1974) was an American authority on etiquette. In 1952 she published the best selling book Amy Vanderbilt's Complete Book of Etiquette. The book, later retitled Amy Vanderbilt's Etiquette, has been updated and is still in circulation today.
