I feel very lucky to be doing something I love...to watch something slowly grow and develop is very exciting and I'm sure I appreciate it more than I would have done in my younger days...there are definitely some benefits to age and being appreciative and aware of things is certainly one of them.
The weekend is coming which means it's time for friday fabulousness and gorgeous glamour...it's nearly christmas after all...

I can't believe we are writing our last post for the year as part of the 'by invitation only' party...the festive theme this month is 'what would you give as a gift, if money was no object to your loved ones'...now, I really don't want to come across as a 'thumping bore' and all my loved ones are receiving wonderful gifts from me...but I have to say the older I get the less value and importance expensive gifts hold for me...don't get me wrong, I adore lovely things, I work with it every day but lavish and extravagant presents I will not be sending or receiving. As the years go by and loved ones are so sadly missed; it makes me realise that all the happiest christmases have been with my family and enjoying the fun of silly games...too much bubbly and always too much fabulous food it's never about the presents...so, if I was able to...I'd like to give a gift of thanks to my family for creating so many wonderful memories...and I raise a glass to many, many more...oh, and just maybe a sprinkling of snow at christmas...now that really would be perfect!
Wishing you much love at

Pretty, elegant, sheer and sexy...silk chiffon is an absolute luxury. I've chosen a few couture images to get your heart racing...the epitome of femininity, soft and beautifully glamorous...
HAPPY WEEKEND and to my blogging friends in the States...

Beauty reveals itself in so many ways...people can be beautiful not necessarily in a physical way but just in what they say, how they act... in their being. I read a quote recently...if only our eyes saw souls instead of bodies how very different our ideals of beauty would be...now that's true beauty.

The busier I am the more organised I become...it's taken awhile to get here but I'm liking this new skill I have acquired...every day is a learning curve...it's true what they say you never do stop learning.
It's such a shame we can't have the wisdom of our years now...in our twenties...I feel I would have been a better and calmer person...but that's not how it goes...we have to grow into us, don't we?
