so, keep a look out for the post on Sunday night.


in trying to improve my blog I had made a dedicated effort to always bring something new

& interesting to the content.  I cannot expect anyone to follow if they get bored with what I post.
now, I'll readily admit there are some women who absolutely have no interest in what
interests me, and that's OK...but for those of you who want to see content about

travel, in a very nice style

lifestyle, my style
fashion, what rocks with elegance
tabletop, served up with opulence
news from everywhere, presented with my take on it
& every now & then a recipe...
bragging about my young grandchildren, or my adult kids
& maybe a photo or 2 of me with a new hair-do or makeup

 & of supreme importance, the publication on the 1st Tuesday of each month of

"By Invitation Only"
contributed by an international group of women who were invited to be members
of this lovely group.

& if the Earth doesn't stop turning we will expand these horizons significantly.

now, for comparison's sake only,

the pair of earrings below may be found at BHLDN,
Anthropology's bridal salon
@ $215.

do you think they compare to the beautiful turquoise/crystal drops above

which will be offered on my website for $80?

to pre-order please email
