20 Things Women Should Stop Wearing After Age 30

This is the name of a pictorial blog on a website called rantchic.com, written by one Kallie Provencher.  Written is a strong word.  It was mostly a bunch of stock photos with some vanilla text that laid down a series of mandates regarding what is and is not appropriate for someone who is over 30 […]

5 Things I’ve Learned As A Vintage Girl On Instagram.

It’s no secret that I love anything vintage.  I’ve made that abundantly clear.  I am part of a delightful community of lovely girls who enjoy full skirts, barrel rolls, brooches, and stacks of bracelets.  What I didn’t realize until after spending countless hours scrolling through Instagram is that there are a few less obvious earmarks […]

Flea Market Finds

Rose Bowl Flea Market!

As I sit on my bed awaiting the arrival of former hurricane Odile, I think I shall regale everyone with my adventures of this past weekend! The original plan was to spend the weekend at Disneyland to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary by participating in Dapper Disney, but then good sense kicked in when I […]

Arizona Onstage Productions – Les Misérables Review

  I think that one of life’s greatest truths is this:  never attempt to perform anything from Les Misérables unless you can pull it off with surgical precision.  Any time I am forced to suffer through some pageant or high school choir that subjects its audience to a shambling, over-performed rendition of On My Own […]

All Hail The Thrift Gods!!

I did a little spontaneous thrifting, this evening.  That is really not a huge shock except that I honestly did not plan to leave the house.  It’s hot and miserable and I haven’t replaced my mascara from the pinkeye debacle.  We only went to two thrift stores, but I write this as giddy as a […]

A Stroll Down Memory Lane

Oh, my gosh. So, my hubby was sorting through the documents folder on the computer and found a letter a wrote to my son’s 5th grade teacher.  Not to put too fine a point on it, but I absolutely hated this woman.  She was a horrible teacher and a horrible person.  My son hated her, […]

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words.

Especially if it is from someone who has shaken off their mortal coil. Perhaps I am already oversimplifying the very thing I’ll be showing you on today’s blog, but the idea is that it exists.  I’m sure you already know that I am deeply interested in the entire field of the paranormal.  Not in the […]

Popping In To Say “Hello!”

I realize that I’m almost completely swallowed whole by this writing ennui and I need to kick my own ass back into gear because I’ve gotten way too comfortable relying on my fall-back-on life and it makes me feel complacent.  My writing muscles have begun to atrophy, so consider this a bit of stretching: I […]

Dear Arizona:

You suck like a twenty dollar whore. So, Arizona is in the national spotlight, again, for making yet another in a long series of really terrible political moves.  This time it is a bill that would allow business owners to deny service to anyone they *believe* infringes on their religious freedom, which means that refusal […]
