under the Christmas YumYum Tree

A Secret Pal sent me this WONDERFUL Baby Alpaca Yarn!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

It is so buttery and yummy and bulky that it almost made me faint when I opened the package – AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH…

DESTINY’s Child: a Hat and Scarf Set Extraordinaire

Did you ever get *colorized* (teeheehee)? I am a WINTER :) The color artiste who was draping me with huge fabric swatches told me I would always look the best in…


and it is, TRUE~!

When I wear that color, it brings out all the natural *makeup* Mother Nature painted my face with. A touch of lipstick and I’m good to go. OH – how I love that – some of us just want to be BABES without all the High & Mighty Maintenence…

This Alpaca is in the same beautiful BlueRed Color Family and will make my skin BLOOM like a little rose in June…

  Monday Morning Mirth  

When your Christmas starts HERE
maybe it’s time to run for cover!

Why you might ask? Well, Vicky’s Secret, IMHO,
ususally doesn’t COVER UP MUCH!

And, if the last minute shoppers I saw out at Oakbrook Mall Christmas Eve were any indication, 9 ouf of 10 procrastinating Guy Shoppers were toting a VS bag back to their cars. (This was actually my reporting assignment that afternoon – last minute shopping that is…)

Imagine my surprise when is saw this box, from, RU ready, MY MOM! It had a note on it that said it was time to stop giving me the warm and fluffy PJ’s and that it was TIME TO GROW UP! Now Halloween is supposed to be the scary Holiday, non? but I was shaking in my faux fur-lined clogs (thanks, Sis!) all the same…

Off with the Lid and what do I see?

How cool is it that my Family respects the fact that I am, indeed, an ADULT!

Meet my little friends on the kitchen counter:
From Left to Right: New Guy on the Block, Santa Monkey; sitting on Huge Old Carnival Prize Dog (I call Happy Jack!); Red-Headed Girl Rag Doll holding Depression Era Celluloid Baby in a Crocheted Dress; Small Carnival Prize Dog (really – it’s RinTinTin!)
