Past, Present, Future

I came across an old photo this afternoon of my Grandmother and my mom in an old diner. The date on the back was 1960. My Grandmother passed away last May on the day before my birthday. I miss her so much. She had the greatest laugh but more importantly her outlook on life was always one of simplistic pleasures and making sure she enjoyed every minute of each day no matter how seemingly dull or tedious it seemed at the time.

As I looked at the picture closely, I studied her face. The mischievous grin I knew oh so well, which usually meant she was just waiting for the right moment to crack a silly joke...or worse....pull a fast one on you, leaving everyone within earshot rumbling with laughter. I closed my eyes and began to giggle as I thought back to one particular summer I had gone to visit her when I was much younger. I was fourteen and bored to bits. Hanging out with Granny for a couple of weeks wasn't my idea of a "cool" vacation, at least not one I would dare tell my friends about when I got back home.

I remembered one hot afternoon she had requested I help her with the laundry. So there we were emptying the hampers and sorting...whites, colors, denim and delicates when she asked me to grab the decorative towels from the bathroom rack. I returned a moment later to see her standing there quiet as can be staring at me through the nylon stocking she had stretched over her head. Her expression was as serious as a heart attack. I FELL OUT! To this day I have never laughed harder or longer than I did at that moment. I swear to God as I type this I am laughing my ass off and crying at the same time.

There will never be another woman like my Grandmother.

Summer Came Early

I gotta confess, I've never been a fan of summer. Where I live it gets oppressively hot and the humidity is always at 150% so summer....not one of my favorite seasons. This year winter didn't really even make an appearance . I think we had a few weeks of chilly weather and moved right in to spring. However, one thing I do enjoy about summer are the designs in SL and what better way to spend a scorching hot day inside...pleasantly cooled with a bit of climate control than in this adorable summer mini dress from BabyCakes. The colors are gorgeous with hues of yellows, golds and oranges reminiscent of a warm summer sunset. This smokin hot design is the Depraved Spring Madness hunt gift so even better, it's free! While you're there though be sure to check out the rest of BabyCakes designs. You're sure to find some very cool clothing for your long hot summer.

Classic Elegance

Click photo to view larger

I love to get all dressed up and hit the town. There's something about classic elegance that never goes out of style, so when I saw this gorgeous little number in the new release section of Zenith Fashion I couldn't resist channeling my inner 1940's siren. The detail on the collar as well as the floral embellish on this dress is really lovely. It also comes with a garters option in case you're feeling a little risque.
