Wednesday Reader December 7 | Santa Fab Light

5 for FRIDAY | DECEMBER 15

Merry Merry Greetings friends and Friday! Super fun episode today beginning with: STEPHANIE'S CHIC ON THE CHEAP Big fan of Stephanie's ideas for pairing and accessorizing for adding pizzazz to this wonderful time of year dressing the part! Learned something from today's Stephanie's Chic on the Cheap column.  Pic #2 - Kitten heeled boots!  Me being a Birkenstock and flip-flop girl always wondered what those cute little heeled boots/shoes I see women wearing are called.  Now I know! And!  the beautiful vintage brooches and little purse are super fab ideas.  Same - gold belt, bangles, and the Ooo-la-la print jeans.  Applause to all! I am so gonna Bling-it-on these next days to Christmas and even a New Year's gathering (following Stephanie's fashion in the know tips) and have confident fun doing it! Thanks, Steph, for always keeping us in the cool-kid-fashion-club! QUICK QUESTION When I was a kid - if memory serves me correctly - I had this little stuffed animal dog with long hair that I named Muffin.  Ha!  I know, super creative, right?  I did also have a Charlie McCarthy ventriloquist doll.  It was a Christmas gift from Santa one year.  But he came with his name.

TOP OF THE MORNING | DECEMBER 4

Monday Greetings ! Presenting first Monday of December Top of the Morning.  A total entertaining line-up beginning with: MONSTERA ALBO - the marvelous outside the gift box idea to WOW that someone-someone on your list who's always a challenge to cool gift.  As in the person who seems to have everything. CANDY CANE hanging from your bird feeder?  Read this little piece and find out why. Ohhhhh -- the GOOSE STORY is a total ear-to-ear smile read and also a wonder of the animal kingdom ((so to speak)) that lives among us.  Or do we live among them? The Coolest Cookie Box presetation is just that --- COOLEST COOKIE BOX PRESENTATION EVER.  Super impressive. SPANISH POTATO SOUP is so on my list to make this week.  What a great reading recipe.  YUM The FAB-FIVE recipes for gift giving or appetizers are Rock-Star-Status and too intriguing not to seriously consider making. GOT A FIREPLACE?  I didn't know the benefits of this great tip of what to do with the wood ashes scooped out of the fireplace.  Now I do and yes I will. MEET SNAPPER THE CHRISTMAS TREE - Raise your hand if you're a fan of the memorable Christmas ads that find us every season?  Mine's raised.  Wait 'til ya watch this one.  Greatness! SILVER BELLS by Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings is a toe-tapping delightful rendition performance.  It's a must listen.

5 for FRIDAY | NOVEMBER 25

Happy day after Thanksgiving - hope your Thanksgiving was warm and filled with friends / family / food / laughter / memory stories and heart.  Mine was.  Traveled to visit my beautiful family in Sacramento and we totally had a blast, telling stories, sharing laughter and eating a lot!  All the usual suspects! Raise your hand if you are or did go out to shop the "Black Friday" sales.  Me, nope.  Hanging out with those of us who did not go out to shop and making executive decisions (ha) what we can create with the all the leftovers. A few pics from our yesterday when it was in full swing production.
