Last Wednesday I woke up with a sore throat. By Friday (9 days of vacation begins) I was full blown sick. Today's OOTD demanded rest and relaxation while wrapped in a cozy quilted Anthro robe...

...gazing adoringly at an early Birthday delivery. Orla Kiely's Pattern. Pamela of Ginger Girl (a fellow Orla enthusiast) identified my prized Orla from my post after seeing the bag in Pattern.

She recommended this fascinating photo filled book about my favorite handbag designer. My BF got a big hug for the early Birthday present. He knows how to bring on a smile.

My guy made the dreaded grocery shopping trip without me. He returned with my favorite comfort foods and thoughtfully made Campbell's Cream of Tomato Soup (with milk) in large ceramic Christmas cups, afloat with Cheez-its! Mm mm Good! Next on his get well menu were Mimosa's afloat with blackberries. Liquid ambrosia! He didn't forget my favorite candy. Two large boxes of Willy Wonka Everlasting Gobstoppers.
As you can guess, most of my to-do list was forgotten. I did move my Internet Browser to Google Chrome, and sent this message to Anthropologie.
I'm hoping Anthro will come through on this with a December Catalog. If not I might have to sticky finger a catalog from someone else.
Yesterday Dad appeared at the door with the cutest little box. Inside were these adorable lily pad earrings handmade by Mom. Later today he arrived with a second pair in different colors. Mom's know how to bring on a smile.
Did you recognize the Anthro Gift Card Holder? Heidi and Christine know what brings on a smile too. There's a thumb print of Tomato Soup I accidentally left behind.
It's been raining cats and dogs for three days straight. Heishe loves watching them fall. Ha-ha!
Orla's AW10 Collection was released last August. I was convinced I desperately needed a darling little bag that resembles the Chanel Flap in Black. But honestly I don't wear much Black. And the Purple is gorgeous but...

This afternoon, I booted up my Laptop to begin writing this post. I meant to open my blog link, but accidentally hit THE FIND link that is set to search Orla Kiely. This search engine has the most comprehensive listing for Orla Kiely. Naturally, I was immediately distracted. It wasn't long before I stumbled upon the bag in the creamy Beige color I thought was not available in the States. I was amazed to find it on sale for 50% off.
I hope Yoox doesn't disappoint me with a cancellation notice. The Quilted Patent Iris Bag in Black is OUT OF STOCK on Orla's USA site. To think I was waiting for a January sale.
