Table For Four

link


Okay. I'm Done! Finished.
Baking Done. Stockings Hung. Tree Up and Decorated. Twinkle Lights Ablaze. Gifts Wrapped. Post Office Visits Finished. Menorah Polished and Stowed till Next Year. Birthdays Celebrated. Dog Fed. Plants Watered. Liquor Cart Replenished. Teeth Brushed. House Still Kind of a Mess. Blah blah blah. December! AUGH!!!
 THIS COOKIE IS DONE! Exhausted. Spent. Finished. Finito!
Next on my List:
Hello? Yes. I'd like to make a dinner reservation for four, please!
My Present to Myself: No More Cooking and Cleaning.
Thank Me Very Much!!
stretch wool skirt - vintage
flannel shirt - thrifted
necklace - J Crew
1930's necklace worn as a bracelet - gift from my mother-in-law
 
It was actually this vintage necklace that told me to go out for dinner. It doesn't get out as much as it did back in the day.
And now a Gift For YOU!!!
Vintage Store Psychic!!!! (Click here if this doesn't show up on your ipad)
 
 
HAPPY HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU ALL!!!!!!

  4. If you listen very carefully, that 1930s necklace is not only demanding to be taken out for dinner, but she wants cocktails. Many. And who are you to disobey?
    Going out sounds like a fine idea after all your hard work, Connie! Hope you and the family enjoy Christmas, and thank you for sharing the lovely Vintage Store Psychic with us again. I love her. And I think I should have her job...
    Happy Christmas, darling Connie! xxxxxx

  6. The girl is crying because Santa is pinching her arm really hard.
    Bwa-ha-ha re vintage psychic. Yes, I also have the Sight and am getting pretty good at reading my own mind and revealing startling facts from my past. This profession is right up there with coning specialist (those people who put the orange cones on the roads while they're shooting movies, I kid you not) and international self-esteem expert. I'm glad you're able to commune with your necklace which tells you lovely things like time to go out for dinner. Well done getting through your to-do list! I'm tired just reading it. I love your outfit - vintage wool skirt with lovely flannel. Enjoy your time off!

    1. You are so sweet. It's tough rocking red lipstick when it just wants to escape through the wrinkles around my mouth. I'm looking more and more like Aunt Clara from "Bewitched"

  22. Nothing is open here! I hate that. Especially since we have to cook for everyone else most of the time! Never mind. Can't have a glass of wine in a restaurant on Christmas day here. Not worth going out.
    Dined at home, great wine, better company, and I still didn't do dishes. Will be open on New Year's Eve, but in the Big City on NY's Day. Wine will be served .... ahem.

  23. Golly! Just found your blog courtesy of Curtise and the Second Hand Years. Like your writing. And your clothes. Hope you will take a look at my blog, although I'm not as good at posting photos as you. Put that on the list of things I gotta learn. This year. Move it on from last year's list!

    Cheers from England,
