T and My Christmas 2011

There is no formality about it with us, we just look at each other, realize we're in the house at the same time, break out the nog, and dive in

here we are eating the mother of all chocolate covered jube jubes

a Guess necklace, how did you know

T know's I love this flower, its like the Chanel flower on the sandals I want


and guess who sent me a Christmas Card........The Chateau Marmont.  never did I imagine I would get mail from them

I believe its a picture of Mata Hari, did you all know she's from Leeuwarden?

poor thing, quite a colorful life though, if your interested you can read more about her here

The Christmas Carol

Went to the greatest show last night, The Christmas Carol. friends from Edmonton come to Vancouver to showcase every year

Wow, wow wow wow

It was opening night and a full house, my friends and I sat up in the balcony for the show, then after intermission we were asked if we wanted front row HELL YES!!!!!!!!!!!!

they did it a little different this year, last year was a round circle for all the muscians to sing one of their own songs then the show, this year it was the show then the round circle

top notch, i`m always just thrilled

I am also so annoyed with myself. somehow I erased my whole night`s footage, everything, well except some pics I don`t really care for, I don`t have a clue what happened

I took the pic above from the show`s reviews

Oh my god! leggings are back

How fun
crazy thing is the last time they were in, I couldn't stand them
jury is still out this time but trying them out
OOH glittery

excuse the mess

this is what I wore today

Mens thrifted sweater
Suzy Shier boots and leg warmers
H&M tights
Target stretch skirt

I had spoken with Frodo's family and told them he was very sick before I went to Mom and Dad's the last time. I said they should take him to the vet. when I got home they had not taken him and he was sick as ever. I took him, and since, I don't think he's gone home, who knows what he does actually, he's outside alot

he's all better now but pissing everyone else off in the house, he doesn't have a care in the world

Pumpkin is quite angry here, if you look closely Frodo is pushed right up against Pumpkin, and what you can't hear is Pumpkin very vocally telling Frodo to F OFF

Gianni Versace Dress

Got a lovely Gianni Versace silk jumper style dress the other day. 9.99!!!!!!, it would have retailed from 1200-1800 dollars new. looks like its never been worn

I traced the tag from the early 2000's collections. now I just have to find the dress in its collection year and season

not sure yet if i'll keep it or not, we'll see if I can think of somewhere to wear it first

this is what I wore yesterday

H&M sweater dress and tights
Jacob jacket
coral thrifted belt
Walmart boots
thrifted bracelet with the engraving Fa (can't figure out where from)

and I got my hair done

trying new things with my camera, took smaller size pics but I don't like them very much. you can't edit them very well

miss everyone!

Mom and Dads Nov/11 - 3

My last day always comes too quickly

I met with Cindy and John for John's 69th Birthday breakfast

when I got home we had a visitor that I haven't seen in over 10 years, Luciano, it was so good to see him

Luciano worked for Dad and David and I met him while we worked at Cumis as well. I believe I was 17 when I met Luciano, he practically lived at the house David and I were living at the time. we think of him as family. funny now all these years later I work with his sister in law, small world

the house looks so lovely all lit up, we also put more lights on another tree out front but I didn't get a picture

I love this picture of Mom, she looks so mop toppy, likes she's just a kid

when it was time to go Luciano drove me to the airport so we got all caught up with life.

After I left Dads sister Carly and brother Duncan came to visit from the island. It was great for Dad, and Cindy and Vincent got to meet some more family as well

Oh and thats the carpet we put down on the front porch so it won't be slippery in the winter
