I was hosting a turkey dinner last night and we set out the antique limoges china I was gifted from the in-laws. I enjoy the sense of formality and history it lends to a meal.
I am in love these vintage bubble glasses. I don't use them very often because they need to be hand washed and I am afraid they will break. One of them has the tiniest chip in the rim (I use that one). They're not as old as the limoges but equally sentimental. They used to be Bryce's. He has a very keen eye for antiques and collectibles. When he moved to Toronto he couldn't take all of his things with him, so I inherited these.
Here is the Cinder+Smoke dress in action.
I was giving Dexter some antihistamine and he knocked the spoon with his flailing fist, spilling sticky artificial grape flavoured goo all over the dress. Hopefully it comes out in the wash...
Oh, and Christmas presents! I love love love my two new necklaces. The one with an apple and gold bow is Betsey Johnson, from Crystal.
The one with a bird and little nest of treasures is by Toodlebunny, from Chrissy. She said there is a shop downstairs from her condo where various designers go on rotation, displaying their wares. She had gone in a few times to scope out the Toodlebunny stuff and finally settled on this one for me. Sounds like my kind of place.
It's funny how two of my oldest friends, though living in different cities, found me Christmas gifts that are so "Miss Sarah". I am a lucky girl. So far, the holidays have been full of smiles, sparkle, and shine.
