Triple Lutz

This post is going to cover a lot of ice fast, so if you can't skate, hang onto a friend and let's go! Before we begin maneuvering the triple lutz, I promised additional photos of French Vanilla's booth at Ralph Willard's and I never break a promise. Peg and Jon buy the most amazing pieces and arrange everything so beautifully, you just want to move into their spaces and stay forever. If Cat Daddy and I bought a mirror like this, we might manage not to break it for at least a couple of hours. But after that, I couldn't promise anything but 7 years of bad luck.
French Vanilla is such a perfect name. It is layered on like icing on a cake, but not overly sweet. You know what I mean? Smooth, creamy and luscious.

Speaking of luscious, meet Hannah. This is their "baby" golden retriever. She is such a sweetheart. Look at how well she posed for the camera. She know she's a star just like her momma and daddy. Now onto the Triple Lutz!

  1. I know everybody is super busy, but please try and make time to go to Alamo North and read the most beautiful love story ever. Be sure and take kleenex when you do. I promise you won't be disappointed and I just told you that I don't break promises.
  2. Everybody loves giveaways, right? Well, get on over to the YaYa Chique's blog. She is having more than one and all you have to do is leave a comment. How generous of her and how easy for us. And if you send friends, you get more chances to win. And wait until you get a load of what all she is giving away. Merry Christmas to us! Wonderful things from her shop. So, don't waste a minute, be like the reindeer and click, click, click on over. Oh, and be sure and mention me by name. I like presents also. (A LOT!!!)
  3. Last, but not least, for those of you who enjoy Trash Day Thursdays, I'm taking a lead from the headmistress herself, Mdme. Theresa from Garden Antiques and adding a second blog just for this. I told her I was stealing, I mean borrowing this idea because I think it is Fab U Lous! I'm in the process of putting it together and hope to have my first listing in the next few days. Just a hint of what will be included- think Christmas Story without the leg lamp.

You know I'm already a fan of your new blog without even seeing any postings yet and yes I've been checking faithfully since she first warned me you were stealing...I mean borrowing the idea. Love it, but I must admit I stole the idea from none other than Chris Brown himself!! I warned him too though.

Karen from A`Musements said...

This is just plain mean! How can you post pictures of French Vanilla and expect a gal in Oregon to NOT go nuts?! What a killer booth.... good thing I am too far away to get my hands on that enormous mirror.... OMG!!! BUT SANTA!!!!
The new background and s*n*o*w is very cool (pardon the obvious flaky pun) Miss Wonderful....
And as you know my darlin', I've always 'got your back' as well.
