Happy Weekend!!!!


Happy Weekend Everyone
&
Happy Chinese New Year!!

It's the Year of the Wood Horse my friends...
We've got one goat and two roosters living in our house so I am hoping that the Wood Horse sends this barnyard..
 Peace, Health, Love and Luck our way..
Check out the The Feng Shui Society  
and
see what the year has in store for you...

So far my day started out perfectly perfect!
I found a lucky penny on the streets of Providence...
Had my Mane tamed...
and 
Collaborated with the Lovely and Oh so Talented Miss Sarah Crawford of Valentine on her Year of the Horseface post!
So Giddy Up and go CHECK OUT her Glorious Goods on
VALENTINE!!

That beautiful lady continues to inspire, challenge and push my creative mind...
So in honor of her...
A little shopping for you!!

Vogue it..

Genius!!
Ohh Mr. Bowles..
You are so wonderfully dashing..
I have been going through all of my magazines(at least 1,000 Vogues) and
sadly I know each and every one of those poses..
Miss Lena..
Any woman is a fool if they don't think that we all have a little bit of you in every one of us..

Image by MarĂ­a de Miguel for Elle Decor Espana

ANYONE who has lived with me knows that I am a hoarder...
of magazines..
But since I am sticking true to my New Year's resolutions..
sadly..
they must go...
Not all..
my god.. that would send me into shock..
So..
over these past few brutally cold weeks,
I have said goodbye to some very very dear friends..
But
for the lucky remaining few..
I need something
a little glittery
and
a little golden
to 
honor and contain my lovely ladies..

a little glitter to start your week...

Little Narragansett Bay
1/20/14
Image by Chocolate Creative Design

Even though the air was so cold that it seemed to take our breaths away on our annual Martin Luther King Jr. holiday walk...
the sea was alive and glittering as the light danced through the spotted clouds above....

We humans are much like the sea...
moving forward..
constantly changing through ebbs & tides..
We are making those craggy rocks smooth to the touch..
slowly but surely eliminating sharp angles..
never dulling the colors..
but rather exposing their beauty that lies within..

We are lucky. 
We now ALL have the ability to have dreams,
share them
AND
make them happen...

As I watched Mr. G bound and leap o'er the fields and head towards the craggy rocks to look out over the sea..
I was reminded of a dream that I have..
A dream that the other mammals that share our earth with us..
may one day share
in respect...
in justice...
and
in freedom...

Who knows..
Dreams are known to come true...

Happy Weekend!!!

Image by Mac Scott

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

Mid January...
The holiday decorations have been packed into boxes and carefully placed into the attic for another year.
The ground becomes frozen, cold and uncomfortable to the foot.
The landscape becomes brown, bare and void of color.
We catch up on sleep from the exhaustion of a month of merriment.
Full of hope and energy, we try to honor our New Year's resolutions.
 We begin again.

There is an eerie silence to it..
Contemplative..
Introspective...
Perhaps a bit of Melancholy?

I disappeared this week from my beloved blog...
I needed to get my chickens in a row...
Get a head start on some wonderfully fun and creative projects that will keep me busy through the Spring..

But I am here..
Ready to begin again....

The Tall One received a rather fabulous gift this year..
a GoPro...
Meant for his adventures with the Monster via bike, boat or 
foot...
It was only fitting that it's first use was of his boys in the first snow of a brand NEW year..

It's not perfect or fabulously edited..
It's real...
So for the Monster's school blog..
I put together a little something...
Something that may bring a little joy to your day...
Something that may make you feel young again...
Something that may make you realize how wonderfully free we all are..

a little glitter to start your week....

Kate Spade Get out of Town Bon Shopper & The Gold Set Luggage Tag & Passport Holder at Arrive Chic

Dear Santa,
Here's what I'm thinking....Next year, the Wesson Family flies South for the winter. I do know that you can find us anywhere we go and palm trees definitely make perfect stocking hangers.  We did receive a major reprieve today as it was in the tropical 50's but lately it's been in the double minuses. One would think that all those cookies, cakes, cheeses, chocolates and more cheeses(which added an extra layer to my physique)would help...but suffice it to say..it hasn't done a darn thing. I know it's possible as you are THE biggest purveyor of glitter and magical things. In the meantime, I'll just let my imagination take me away...
to blue seas and golden sunsets...
To Sequins, Stripes and Snakeskin...

Your EVER Faithful Believer,
Lucinda

P.S. Thank you for the the electric blanket. It arrived today..
Just in time for the cold snap tonight.

A long winter's nap....

Image by Carl Bengtsson for Selvedge Magazine

Brrr....
Baby it's cold outside!!!
It's looking like Hercules is heading right in our direction...
Apparently, he is chock full of snow and icy winds.
Time to stock up on fire wood, batteries and  snacks!

I wish I could say that I was decked from head to toe in glitter this holiday season but sadly this year, it was my house that got the star treatment..

Luckily for me, I have been comfy, cozy and fully enjoying warm hearted Christmas gifts that were bestowed upon me.

Looks like I have been prepared for Hercules all along...
