Hello! Again!

So, here I am once again with nothing to say.

Actually, that's not true. A lot of really cool stuff has been happening that I'd love to tell you about, but I just don't have the time. Or rather, I just don't make the time. Or rather, I'm letting all my thoughts mellow until I have just the right words to share with you.

Nah. I'm just lazy.

Until I get my act together here's another picture of me: 

There, don't we all feel better now knowing that I still exist?

Obviously not a current picture. You can tell by the flowers in the background, and by the still uncut hair.  There are a few more unpublished photos in the files. Procrastination is my friend. I have a winter's worth of Visible Monday outfits saved up. Now I won't have to go out into the cold for pictures if I want to participate. Yeah!

This outfit is a combination of recycled, upcycled and Canadian-made items. Except the shoes. My fussy feet require just the right shoe, so when I find ones that work I buy them. Ideals be damned. 

The shrug and the trousers were both bought on consignment. The tank is Canadian-made by Miik clothing (Purchased at Be clothing). The bracelet is stolen from a gift from my mom. (I think she knows I have it.) The pendant is locally made from recycled bicycle parts. (Rose Pedals Jewelry if you're interested. You should be interested.)

Linking up with Patti of the Patti dress over at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday. Hope you'll stop by and check out the fun. And if the promise of stylish women with impeccable taste isn't enticement enough, there's a contest too! You should seriously check it out.


  1. I am so glad you've stockpiled photos for Vis Monday through the winter, Laurie! I am with you about the feet - comfort first. No stilettos will ever crush my feet again : > thanks for linking up.

    1. Thank you for hosting Patti! And for taking the time to comment. So looking forward to seeing the rest of your Karina dresses.

  2. Glad to see you, no matter what season you show us! Looking pretty cute, whether it's current or not,
    So glad good things are happening! Best news of all, and that's worth the writing just in that brief little news flash.

    1. Thanks Jan! And so good to see you here!

      While I'm writing this there's a list of 15 things I want to write about sitting on the desk in front of me. Some day you might get to see it too. I just have to flesh it out a bit.

  3. I'm glad to hear lots of cool things are happening. If you don't tell us what they are, I'll just have to imagine. You probably sold a novel and bought a vintage Volkswagen camper and have been driving around the Hawaiian Islands (Volkswagens float). And you are about to buy an art gallery with Julia Louis-Dreyfuss. Wow, you have a cool life!

    1. I want to live in your imagination Val! Though you're close. There was a book publication involved, and I'm currently watching Seinfeld reruns. The floating Volkswagen is still on the wish list.

  4. ...and I'm back again, wishing you kids a Very Merry Christmas!
