HELLO LOVELY READERS……………HOW IS YOUR SUMMER GOING?
THE WEATHER HERE IN CALIFORNIA HAS BEEN CHILLY AND OVERCAST!
NOT WHAT I WOULD CALL SUMMER WEATHER….
WE have celebrated 35 years of marriage!
HARD TO BELIEVE………
THE DRESS was the only wedding planning I got to do with my MOTHER and I do recall it cost a FORTUNE!
The ITALIAN’s suit was made by GUCCI and was transferred up from the ROME store…………needless to say the pants were the WRONG SIZE and the correct size arrived by courier a couple hours before the wedding!
THE WEDDING WAS AT 11 AM!
HE CAN STILL WEAR THIS SUIT TODAY!
YES,THAT WOULD BE THE DUOMO IN THE BACKGROUND!
Who can tell me who built THAT DUOMO?
DO you know his slippers are in the basement of the DUOMO under GLASS?!
My shoes were made by GUCCI for me as a wedding present!
SO ONE OF A KIND!
(I KNOW A VERY LUCKY BRIDE!)
We have seen the GRANDCHILD TWICE IN ONE MONTH!
AND TODAY I GO TO SEE THE LUNG DOCTOR!
ALL INCREDIBLY EXCITING I KNOW!
THIS PAST MONTH I OPENED FLOWER MAGAZINE TO SEE MY CARD I HAD SENT TO A DECORATOR IN DALLAS
…….tucked in her FOYER MIRROR!
TALK ABOUT A THRILL!
CAN YOU FIND ME?
There I am in one of ADVANCED STYLE PHOTOS I HAD MADE INTO NOTECARDS!
(TOP RIGHT MIRROR LOOK FOR THE WOMAN IN RED!)
YOUR CONTESSA and BANKSY.
Michelle Nussbaumer and I have a few things in common!
COLORFUL WALLS,ANIMAL LOVERS,ROME,ANTIQUES and both married Europeans!
I hope to meet her one day!
SHE IS HIGH ON MY BUCKET LIST!
TALK ABOUT ANOTHER THRILL to LOOK FORWARD TOO!
I also receive HOME & ANTIQUES from ENGLAND and when I saw the photo of these shoes I jumped for JOY!
THAT BRAIDING REMINDS ME OF FRENCH PASSEMENTERIE.
They sold for 32,000 POUNDS which equals $42,000.00 DOLLARS!
Someone should start making MONOGRAMED SHOES LIKE THIS AGAIN!
For that someone who has EVERYTHING!
BIRDIES does a good velvet flat which I live in from Gardening to House Slippers to LIVING IN, but to ADD A BEAUTIFUL MONOGRAM especially for the HOLIDAYS would just be the ICING ON THE CAKE!
MAYBE SOMEONE AT BIRDIES READS ME AND WILL FOLLOW THROUGH with my thoughts here!
I WOULD BUY EVERY COLOR!
JUST THINK THEY COULD CALL The slippers CONTESSA!!!
GAAAWD I WOULD LOVE THAT!
I WOULD WEAR THE REST OF MY LIFE!
INSIDE AND OUTSIDE AND EVEN TO THE GROCERY STORE!
SPEAKING of CAKE I have a BIRTHDAY coming up!
JULY 22,I WILL BE 61 years old!
ABSOLUTELY NO PLANS AGAIN THIS YEAR………….I guess its time to wind down the festivities!
THAT’s OKAY as I have NO ENERGY TO ENTERTAIN OR GO OUT!
This photo is from last year where I sat in my GARDEN and received a FEW FRIENDS who dropped by!
How can I TOP this OUTFIT?!!!
We all will have to wait and SEE what I come up with as JEANS willNOT CUT IT!
It’s a SMALL WORLD AGAIN!
I READ A LITTLE BOOK IN A DAY CALLED HOW Y’ALL DOING? BY Leslie Jordan!
He is HYSTERICAL and has a WONDERFUL INSTAGRAM………HIS FAME CAME FROM INSTAGRAM DURNG THE PANDEMIC AS HE WAS STUCK AT HOME IN TENNESSEE WITH HIS FAMILY!”BORED OUT OF HIS MIND”, I THINK ARE HIS WORDS!SO HE STARTING TALKING TO HIS PHONE!I remember I found him when he was doing his “PILLOW TALK” series!
THE MAN HAS A FOLLOWING OF 5.6 MILLION PEOPLE FOLLOWING HIM NOW!
He is 4 foot 11 inches tall and is 66 years old!
You may remember him from WILL and GRACE?
THE BOOK IS A GREAT READ.Full of HIS LIFE STORIES! I FEEL I SHOULD GIVE IT OUT FOR GIFTS!
SO, I know another lady who was an AGELESS STYLE VICTIM for me years back who lives in TENNESSEE.
I sent her a text saying are you FOLLOWING HIM HE IS SO FUN!
SHE SENT THIS BACK TO ME VIA TEXT!
Seems LESLIE was in that movie THE HELP and BRENDA (far left) drove down to Mississippi to see him on set!
TALK ABOUT ANOTHER THRILL!
