Mothers, Daughters & Handbags

Demi with her 2 daughters, Rumer & Tallulah Willis
they really look like their dad, huh?

would you carry this handbag

We have all 3 colors

very smart, very chic,
 Serpentine patterned leather with snake-patterned banding & handles,
with detachable shoulder strap, zip top.

this is a medium sized bag

Boston Style Leather Women Handbag Tote

now for the REALLY good news :

$ 125.00
plus shipping

(we found these as a "special purchase" for new buyers of this line,
so YOU get a big discount too).

to order send us an email, telling us which color & give us your city.

we will send you a PayPal invoice or you may pay us directly by telephone with
any major credit card.

if we sell out we can re-order for you, it takes about 2 weeks for us to receive the goods,
just fyi.

this is probably one of the BEST prices you will ever see for
a genuine leather bag, so do not wait...

A Great Room For Football TVing

in Texas football is BIG,
in our house we love NFL football,
but there are legions of people who are University of Texas Longhorn fans,
so somewhere there is always a party during football season.

this room via Houzz
is pretty wonderful isn't it?

plus we see this kind of thing pretty often when we're out in our hill country


I clean

looks like a mighty pretty stable area, doesn't it?
& it also shows that God intended all His children to love one another.

& I just couldn't resist posting this PHOTO 

to say that this photo represents what the past few days have been like is a real

but, as always, sanity prevails eventually, and all is well again.

my toe is fine.  something stung me & I didn't feel a thing until long after the sting.

& now, the beautiful Gisele as seen by Baz Luhrmann
for Chanel

“It’s a thinly veiled expression of her life, “[Gisele] can be incredibly athletic. She has children. She has a very, very significant relationship. She has a career where she can create aspirational, sensual, incredibly glamorous imagery,” said Luhrmann. And yet, he mused, “What’s most important to her, and I think I’m not out of line saying this, is love. That’s what we try to convey in this little film.” “I think Gisele is the perfect symbol of the Chanel woman now. It is about bringing all those aspects to life. It’s a multi-layered woman.” - Baz Luhrmann


Long Day's Journey Into Night....

& this was what I was thinking about
after a difficult day in court yesterday.

I was thinking:

I absolutely must.

I will enjoy arranging them.  They will make me happy.

& they did make me happy,
& they make me happy today also.

flowers, don't they just add so much to our lives?

"By Invitation Only" October 2014

International Blog Party

We had an amazing turnout for September's post,
and a huge readership.
Thank you to everyone !! 

this month most all of us are feeling the Fall Season in the air,
seeing pumpkins and halloween things everywhere...

so we thought it would be fun to share our thoughts on what,
to each one of us,
is our "take everywhere,"  "can't leave home without it,"
item of clothing or Fall accessories we know
will serve us in good stead.


Central Park Near The Pond, NYC

as most of you already know, I tall 5'7," so I can carry off the bold looks.

this ruana just reached out and grabbed me, I had to have it!!

& also most of you know I live in Houston where we have almost NO winter,
so this little number will get used quite a lot, worn with soft little turtlenecks, 
and some slim legged pants.

& my jewelry & handbags, naturally.

I don't wear my fur coats any longer, unless I'm in ski country,

& I have a black cashmere long double-breasted coat which suffices
for almost anything dressier, city-wise, etc.

I also have 2 fox flings, one gray and one red, both very long, both from
my days at Sak's 5th Avenue.

like this one, but gray and red.

they can go over the ruana, or over the coat if I'm really feeling glamourous.
& when I'm in NYC or Chicago or San Francisco I feel glamourous.

the ruana can also go over my coat if it's REALLY COLD.
I do this all the time with beautiful shawls, pashminas that are over-sized,
and you know what, everyone compliments me!
& I do love that.

now for the one and only shoe I've really fallen in love with

the heel is a bit lower, it's comfy, and it does make a big statement.
seriously, I think I could wear this with almost everything.

& BTW, I do have a long long boiled wood RED COAT,
with matching red turtleneck,
so with those black leather pants, and my red handbag I think I'm styling pretty well.

I think this is Rachel Zoe,
just beautiful.

this is supposed to be a "fun" post
with NO message of importance.

please scroll down to see all the other ladies of our membership who are posting
on this seriously important topic,
and hop over to see what they think is way-cool this season.

&, as always, thank you thank you thank you for reading our blogs
and becoming our friends.
we love U 2

a big lovable WOLF gives his keeper a big hug,
you see, we can live side-by-side.
