If I could afford it I would collect couches the way Katie's nephew collects matchbox cars.

Downloading Music and Contemplating Creativity

I love to share music with Nina. She mostly doesn't like what I share I pretty much love hers. Well, mostly like hers. I thought my taste was diverse and maybe this is one of the things I passed on to my daughter. Her mind is wide open. I might have made a wee mistake introducing her to Tom Waits this Christmas though...I thought she was ready, ha.

This day I'm contemplating creativity. And sometimes all it take is a little bit of music and some words from interesting people to get me motivated....

Happy 2012 Our Future Is Bright

   I have four little numbers here picked by my lovely assistant, aka the daughter home from college. They represent the three winners of the cute, smart and versatile little calendar. The fourth is a winner from the full month of December for the Woodwings' charm necklace.
   I just popped in Woody Allen's "Midnight In Paris" so am a bit distracted by the opening screen shots and the melancholy horn. Did you know Woody plays a clarinet.
   Let me tell you the winners, because I'm charmed by the movie and really have to dash :) I wish just one thing, that I could see each of you in your outfits!

   The calendars go to the following.
Katina, who will be baptizing her brother's wife-to-be this summer in sumptuous silk shift which I picture dropping off a rack in Paris in the 20's.
2  JHBALVIN who, like me, waits until the last minute to decide on the outfit for her event of the year and still has to buy her red shoes!
3   Aik whose 18th birthday is this month and is wearing a pair of Vincci heels to celebrate, ooo!
The fourth selected is Robin whose wish is for peace and love. I hope you like the necklace Robin and I hope your wish comes true!

Okay girls. It's 2012 and no one can live it for us. So let's get out there and take a chance!
