The Warmth of Winter Perfumes
Winter is a heady time for the senses:  frosty cold, pristinely white landscapes, soft cashmere, the glow of firelight, comforting soups, and rich warming perfumes.  Choosing fragrances with opulent spicy undertones mirrors our cravings for soothing restora...

Winter Musings
Charity begins at home...and so does kindness.  When I need to make changes in myself, mostly in regards to fitness and well-being, I am far more successful when the changes become a source of pleasure and not torture.  And it begins with being gentle and k...

On the Twelfth Day of a Feminine Christmas
I love this elegant image of a woman in a Christmas green knit dress and a friendly reindeer.  The deep forest green and red shoes (and hair) make for a lovely Christmas picture.  It alludes to a rich deep plaid of beautiful red, green, and gold.  A friend ...

On the Tenth Day of a Feminine Christmas
All over Facebook are folks wishing others Happy New Year.  Many are using vintage photographs showing people at parties wearing their very finest.  Invariable someone will lament, "Why can't people dress like that today"?  It is a beautiful thing to see - ...

On the Eighth Day of a Feminine Christmas
This lady is bringing Christmas to someone, at least it appears so since there a tree is her passenger.  I always have Christmas Eve at home with family and some friends.  Sometimes there is a new addition as there was this year, a new beau of a friend.  He...

On the Sixth Day of a Feminine Christmas
I found myself with a tear in my eye on the way home from work yesterday, thanks to Sirius Radio's Holiday Traditions station.  Toyland, sung poignantly by Doris Day came on the radio and since I was trapped in a traffic jam, I had a chance to really hear t...

This picture for a designer faucet stopped me in my tracks.  I have felt this way most of my life. Well, at least since I first dipped into Little Women, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and the novels of Jane Austen.  The modern woman peering at an 18th centu...

Better Days Ahead
Many years ago, a friend whose life I thought perfect, let me read a card her husband had given her.  Inside was a simple handwritten, "Better days ahead".  Apparently, as I was to learn, my friend's marriage had been in desperate trouble for a long time an...

On the Eleventh Day of a Feminine Christmas
This image says "New Year's Day" to me.  Perhaps it's her pastel coat and floral muff.  Perhaps she has done what I do which is to put away my fall colors and hues and bring my icy pastels to the front of the closet.  It's fun to have one's wardrobe mirror ...

On the Ninth Day of a Feminine Christmas
This is one of my favorite feminine Christmas images which I took from a British Vogue many years ago.  I'm sorry for the quality but perhaps you will understand why I saved the picture if I describe what I see in it. Our lovely model is wearing a beautiful...

On the Seventh Day of a Feminine Christmas
Jewelite was a type of plastic that was used for vanity items.  My grandmother had a lovely pink translucent Jewelite dresser set composed of a mirror, brush and comb.  The pretty trio was a Christmas gift from my grandfather sometime during the war years w...

On the Fifth Day of a Feminine Christmas
This is clearly an ad for a blanket.  But I love the cheery disarray of the bedroom, especially the wrappings and ribbons scattered about.  And how will she ever not step on that sweet little tea cup and saucer?  I really love her luxurious sweeping robe to...
