Summer Style Lesson Three - Dresses
Summer sun dresses were staples in my wardrobe as a child.  Many were made by my grandmother who was a skilled seamstress.  Rick-rack, daisy chain trims, pretty buttons, and deep hems were some of the lovely features of those dresses.  And because I am a tw...

Summer Style Lesson One - Head Scarves
A pretty way to add summer elan to an outfit, is to don a head scarf.  For Saturday errands, I will often wear a tropical-colored head scarf to add pizzazz to an otherwise plain pair of khaki shorts and solid t-shirt. On humid days, the scarf keeps wispy ha...

The Fourth of July .... and Carol
Summer brings many joys like ice cream and the Fourth of July.  This year more than ever, it seems that American women dressed more patriotic than ever before. The political and social reasons can be explored at more intellectual blogs than this one - I onl...

Vesper's Handbag
I did something I have never done before - I watched a Bond film.  I caught Casino Royale on a recent rainy Sunday.  Violent, bloody and for me, hard to completely follow, I was still able to enjoy the luxurious locations, gorgeous sets and wardrobes.  I wa...

My Tiffany's
Holly Golightly said that nothing very bad can happen to a person at Tiffany's.  I second that.  The real world slips away and we are lost in fantasy and beauty and like Holly, we feel safe. I'm not talking about physical safety because sadly, that's never ...

Seventeen Summer
No matter what age I was, all my summers were Seventeen Summers.  They were filled with the glories depicted in what I consider Seventeen Magazine's golden years (1960's - 1970's).  Neither cell phones or iTunes were part of my Seventeen Summers.  We had sm...

Summer Style Lesson Two - Straw Handbags
Every mother who dropped her child off at our town's one lake for morning swim lessons had a straw or rattan handbag balanced on the passenger seat of the family station wagon.   Even if mom's summer consisted of nothing more than carpooling, making endless...

Rosie's Choice
The little tree I sit under at lunch each day provides me with shade and a welcoming perch - my "spot" has has a wooden bench that is a cool summer oasis in my busy work day.  I often get lost in a few book chapters or some lilting music.  But I no longer f...

Me and Mine
Twelve years ago this summer, I was very sick.  Hospital sick.  Life was reduced to what is really important:  people.  Plain and simple.  I didn't give a hoot about clothes and makeup and I certainly didn't care what my hair was doing.  I only cared about ...

Two Mothers
I'm always a little sad when Mother's Day ends.  I have enough self-knowledge to know it's the passage of time that gently tugs at my heart.  Quickly go the years... These two ladies were neighbors for almost thirty years.  The photo was taken last summer a...

Can I see you?
I love the written word and when a man writes, I listen (or read) -  especially if he is articulate.  I fell in love when a man once wrote to me, "I'm going to hit the rack".  He could have said, "I'm going to bed" but his phrase charmed me and belied his m...
