I've heard it can take weeks to process online Gift Cards. So I called the order line. Wrong choice. I then had to call CS. It took too long. This morning I received a cancellation notice. Boohoo! But I was able to pick up another Jacket at the Soho NY Store. Yippee! There was one Small left.
25% off Red Tag Sale is still effective through today.
Attention To Detail Dress, Tapestry Tights, and Fisherman's Companion Sweatercoat (not the one seen in the image). It wasn't until days later that I discovered the model was also wearing my Berry Stitched Boots.
Spruce Corset Belt to good use. The dress has an elastic waist with a ribbon tie. I belted over top the elastic waist and let the ribbon hang down. I kinda like it. Does it look OK Readers?
Your probably wondering why I'm not wearing the Fisherman's Companion Sweatercoat. Mildew odor! Guess where that came from? The Berkeley CA Store. The same store that left the security tag on the From The Poles Jacket.

And now for some necklace inspiration. No it's not snowing the cold stuff in Bako, but it was snowing vintage Tatted snowflake ornaments. A result of my Mothers talented handy work from many years ago. I was instantly inspired by these small pieces of art. Each painstakingly made using a lost form of Old English lace making known as Tatting. What will I do with them all?
It took me 1/2 an hour to decide which three ornaments I loved together. Then all of 15 minutes to de-construct an old Etsy necklace and make myself a Tatted Snowflake Ornament Necklace.

How is everyone weathering the holiday's, floods, and snow storms? All the major passes into the Southern end of the Central Valley of CA are closed due to snow, or rock slides. One of my cubicle cell mates is stuck in LA. Heidi is trapped (although happily I am sure) in her little mountain community.
I was thrilled to find I had hit the 100 Followers mark over the weekend. While my Laptop is in for repairs, I can't easily check everyday. I promise I will make commenting rounds from my son's disgraceful bedroom over the next couple of nights. Hope to see everyone soon.
BTW! I'm planning something special for those left over snowflakes. Can you guess what my plan might be?
