What’s Up?

image

I got an email from a friend of mine that hadn’t heard from me in days… It said What’s UP?  So, I thought I’d share. 

In another email I got this silly cartoon & had to roar or cry at the one on the above left!!!!  Anyone else having this same problem?  My closet is full of things I don’t/can’t wear & with Christmas & the cold weather approaching I am busy working on this problem.

And the last one is sooooooooooooooooo TRUE!!!!! I wore a pair of shoes the other day that killed me!  That cost me over $300  but, I’m weeding out what doesn’t fit or I don’t wear.  Something in that closet has to give!

 Purple Velvet

  Thought I’d show a few of the things I bought…   Purple???? I know… I haven’t bought purple in a long time but, loved this royal color in velvet.  And new “Stretch” jeans.   Does that make me an old lady???  Hope not but, it does make me a comfy one.

 

This oversized “Boyfriend” Cord Jacket in CHOCOLATE!

And the boot above also in CHOCOLATE!

I know, I know… I have Christmas shopping to do but, I NEED these things.  Anyone else having the same problems?

raspberry red - just the right in-between

As long as I was in the pampering mood… I went to get acrylic nails put on for the holidays.  I used to wear them all the time (about 12 years or more) but, when I took them off to have surgery 5 years ago I didn’t put them back on.  My nails grew strong & pretty long but, were never all the same length.  And polish wouldn’t stay on so I decided what the heck! 

So very cute. Will be my Christmas toes!

I treated myself to a pedicure but, didn’t go this far out!  Anyway, now you know what I’ve been up to what about you?

Next week I am so excited to say that I will be taking a 3 day class with KC Willis.  I am sooooooooo excited that she is here in town!  Yes, no travel involved (unless you count the terrible traffic right here in the Dallas/Ft Worth area travel).  Here’s a sample of the projects.  I CAN’T WAIT!  I’m head out with a couple of gal pals & we’re gonna have a blast! 

OneLittleRifle by KC Willis

Cute isn’t it????  An alter/shrine that I am a bit on the fence about but, my buddy Jan is pumped about that class.

And last but, not least is the flag with WOMEN in place of the 50 stars.  I think that is a COOL concept!

Check back to see how it all goes & be sure to visit KC’s site to find where she is teaching or to purchase that a class online.  Have a great weekend! GO out & stimulate this economy like I have. 

HUGS!  Charlene

Well I think you're having fun now weeding out the closet and buying some new things. 300 dollars shoes have to say I've never been there and maybe a good thing, I'm just not a shoe person is what it comes down to.
Purple, YES I am doing purple myself this winter. Take care. Nan

Charlene said...

No! Sweet Nan that was not for one pair! Even for my big feet I didn't do that!!!! I hit a great sale online & got 3 or 4 pairs! HUGS! Charlene

Karen said...

OMG! Those 3 projects are wonderful!!! Gosh, I haven't been to a class in forever! Memorize them... And then you could teach them to me and Joynwhenu come to town!!
Love those toenails!!!
Big hugs! Karen

Lisa said...

What a great winter you will have! Fun clothes and projects!! Weee!!
Your clothes are great and look super comfortable!! ENJOY!!
I got rid of over half my clothes this fall, my HUGE closet won't hold them. Most fit but I never wear them, ever. So they go and I am a jeans and tee girl!
Have a great time Christmas shopping ;)
Hugs, Lisa
ps I have a new post up I know you are shocked, but my new little girl is pictured!

Haha! Just laughing at your comment to Jan, Charlene...I'm a big footed girl, too...size 11! SO hard to find fabulous shoes in my size!

LOVE the clothes you just got--they're just my style! So funny--I've been in a real purple mood lately. I don't really have anything & I've been suddenly on the lookout for purple! Love that velvety purple top--perfect!

Wishing you the most wonderful 1st of December, dear friend...my, the time flies, doesn't it?!

Wonderful purchases. I am so jealous! You will be learning in person from KC! I adore her work and hope some day to take a live class from her. Can't wait to see what you make in the class.

OMG...I LOVE the purple top & I don't even wear PURPLE...but I'd sure wear this. Where did you get it from??? I had one very similar I bought years ago at Eddie Bauer, but it was like a chocolate/burgundy color & I loved that top too. I can tell your gonna be looking hot the next time I see you!!! :))))
