BARTERING

BARTERING ???? !!!!!

didn't that go out of style a long long long time ago?

well, never fear, each one of us is supposed to come up with "something"
we could barter.

well, all of you know that the image below is the real me:

We are “Head Over Heels” this #ShoeTuesday for these @aminahjillil bejeweled heels. #regramLove @munaluchibride @aminahjillil #aminahjillil #bejeweledshoes #TuesdayShoeDay #weddingShoes



I hardly ever cook, I now live in a high-rise so gardening is out too,
I probably cannot teach anyone anything except the samba or tango,
I can't bust broncos, keep bees, ride a tractor, skydive,
and I've given up downhill skiing, target practice, bow & arrow bullseye challenges & sailing

Coty mentioned to me that we might have to even consider giving up electricity !!!!!
I asked her to please allow this otherwise I would have no way to do my hair.

so you see, there is really only one thing left that must be undertaken,



BOOT-LEGGING

  10. Love it! Go for it....trust me business would be booming lol. Fun post, like you I could probably deal with the no technology but seriously no electricity? No way, I am way too spoiled by electricity to imagine life without:)

  12. As usual a very fun post presented my Madame Splendarosa! Love that dress and had one similar in white lace when I was quite young. I want to do a second sky-dive for my upcoming big milestone b-day, and can't yet give up down-hill skiing, but have found it difficult to get up when I take a tumble in the snow...hahaha! Have given up wearing, but not buying high heeled shoes. Then there is always Paris and perfume!

    2. But Marsha ... Those magnificent shoes... Wherever did you find them?

  13. Marsha, those delectable splendidibellifantabidosi shoes made it onto my big birthday celebration invitation email on first glance :))
    I guess that means I love technology as much as ever, but seriously you must have the shoes they are divine.

    I could live without technology,we all did....... and with no electricity I would certainly join you for a candlelight aperitvo, by a warm fire, cooking on a barbecue....we could play card games and make lively conversation and repartee,
    Yes, that is real life!

    A great subject my dear
    much love xxx

  14. Hello Marsha,
    Oh the visual of you in those high heels and boot-legging!! Ha, Ha Ha.....as she slaps her knee. Would that mean you would make home deliveries? I would say get the shoes now before they become extinct. Do you suppose any of us bloggers have shoe making skills?
    A wonderful subject this month, thanks for the humour.

    Helen xx

  16. How uplifting!!! Particularly during these days of sadness.
    Well, my dear Marsha, I'll send you my pair of black satin shoes - you adorn them with your jewelery - and in exchange I'll embroider your personal monogram, together with elaborate flowers, on one of my finest antique linen oversheets.
    How about that????
    Much love, xxxk

  17. Ahh, what a funny idea....give up electricity???? I think not;):) Like you, I couldn't do my hair!!! I LOOOOVE those shoes too but could never wear them. I used to wear heels all day at work and when I got home would keep them on til I went to bed. Not anymore, my feet likk me. I DO wear kitten heels all the time though since I am so short:(

  18. Hallelujah! At least now I know where to go to get a decent martini! ;) Marsha, I am sorry to be so late to this post but the events last week in France really threw me off in more ways than one. Better late than never, non? Pour a new round of drinks!
