Bonjour, Happiness

A delightful little snippet of a book,
written by an American woman with French ancestry.

Explaining her observations of aging...
the differences between the French values and the American ones.

Witty, caustic, sensible, and quite correct in her assumptions.

Mostly important to women as they enter their 50's & beyond.
About how intellect, experience, wit, charm & life well-lived
are so much more important than what we see in the mirror. 
Attributes so much more important in making life worth living at every age.

A great gift for a mother, aunt, sister or friend.

Welcome to my new followers !!
I appreciate each of my friends/followers so very much.

I work very hard to produce interesting content for
these pages so, hopefully, my girlfriends will enjoy
each post.

Tomorrow, tear stains on white dogs...
how to remedy this correctly.

"More important than what we see in the mirror" you should worry - your are a gorgeous lady if that's your profile picture!

To Yonks, yes it is a pic of me posted on my profile. But, no matter how we look we're not immune to huge insecurities about our appearance. I think Elizabeth Taylor thought this, can you even imagine? At this point in my life I've discovered it's really OK to be a complete head-to-toe mess sometimes...and, egads, you should see me when I'm creating the jewelry. But, thank you thank you thank you for the lovely compliment.
