What Are You Wearing for Thanksgiving ????





when I'm at home doing most of the cooking,
I'm in the most unbelievable collection of clothes that cannot be hurt while doing all the work,.

so we won't be going there today :)'s

once I'm certain all is well, almost finished,
I go get dressed.

we're kind of informal at home, but dress-up casually.
Houston doesn't always have Fall weather at Thanksgiving
but we try to wear Fall colors for dinner.
it wouldn't be unusual for me to wear a pair of beautiful
JohnnyWas silk pants, the beautiful printed ones,
with a simple cashmere or silk sweater on top.
beautiful earrings, but no other jewelry because I'm the hostess and those pieces might get in the way.




the above is just right up my alley,
the black sweater has the white collar banding & the blue/black hem all in one piece,
so it won't be hot !!  

the jacket probably won't be worn but I have it just as it looks in the image.
Dries Van Noten


I don't have help on Thanksgiving, except for friends or
other family members, so I'm right in there with all the
dishes, etc.
in fact, I prefer doing it all myself even if I'm up till 2AM

SO, MY DARLING FRIENDS,
HAVE A
WONDERFUL HOLIDAY WITH FRIENDS & FAMILY

CHERISH THEM ALL !!


OK, now tell me:

what are YOU wearing Thanksgiving Day ????

*****************


AND NOW I'M OFF THE FIND A RECIPE FOR

PIE-CAKE-EN



LIKE TURDUCEN, BUT DESSERT 


lucky girl that I am, I'll be going to
Thanksgiving with my besties this year,
we're going to the magnificent buffet at one
of the local clubs, I'll take some photos and put them up as soon as I'm home, the ice and veggie carvings are absolutely beautiful and quite extravagant, and I'll take close-ups of those details.

my daughter-in-law's mother is quite ill
after suffering a very very bad fall a while back,
so I think her family will all be together to rally around the mother.

life changes so fast doesn't it?

with that in mind, be kind to everyone you see
as we have no idea how much that might mean to them. this time of the year is when we all need to be ONE.

love to you guys from 80f Houston

Who Says ?

WHO SAYS

we can't use sparkly jewelry for day wear ???

of course, you can & should !!

so rummage through your stacks of jewelry and bring out
the bling, pile it on with a beautiful jacket &
see how you rock it.

look at this....





& think about Iris Apfel, the iconic woman that she is.


SHE wears HUGE JEWELRY and HUGE GLASSES
& somehow we look at her and think "that's Iris!"

she's made her look so distinctive we all recognize her.

not recommending we copy her, but I think it's really cool to take on some of the
trends you might feel are for the younger ones only.

like the sparkly necklace, for example !

WHO SAYS you can't ???

ONLY YOU...


when I was in Santa Fe recently we walked into a beautiful mineral shop, where they had enormous specimens and
huge bowls made out of semi-precious stones. just beautiful pieces anyone would love to have.

well, when I got home I told one of my friends about the bowls,
I had taken a couple of photos, and she decided she needed one of them as a gift for another girlfriend.

so, I called the shop, introduced myself and told the woman
what I wanted.  She said, "Oh, I remember you!  You had that
Meg Ryan haircut and the dress with the lace flounce on the bottom."  

Yep, that was me.

The dress, just FYI, was a navy flowered print midi length shift, with a gathered navy lace flounce, I had navy gladiator sandals,
& my hair looked like Meg Ryan because there is NO humidity in Santa Fe and the product I use on my hair in Houston
was impossible to blow out in that arid place.

Too funny !!

So, I didn't look "young" I just looked "happening."
not bad.

CONNECTIONS - By Invitation Only


International Blog Party



the idea of "connections"

well, if one looks this up today you will get a page full of
 "how to connect to your device" information.

& connecting to our devices has enabled us, or prohibited us, to make real connections
with OTHER PEOPLE.

we're so connected, we're unplugged from reality.

Image result for photo of victorian christmas party

this lovely piece is in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London

& to me this IS connecting !!

the kind of connecting I like.

friends, family, distant relatives, Uncle Arnold, and the little ones,
all enjoying the same food and drink, all talking at once,
and all thankful for the occasion to CONNECT.

as the holidays approach I'm going to make certain
I reach out to people I've not spoken to in awhile,
friends with whom I speak each week,
all my family, the grocer, the postman, etc.
to tell them how grateful I am that they are in my life.

yes, it takes a little time, but the gift of giving of oneself,
of CONNECTING,
is the best gift of all, I think.

please hop over to see the other ladies who have joined us today,
you will find them here
