Early Xmas

Ladies & Gentlemens, 

This Blossom is not at all ready for Christmas. Are YOU? 

I've been busy, and yet and not even remotely caught up. The only thing I've been catching is a cold; ack-choo, dtang-ku veddy much. 

BUT I wanted to share with you a few early Xmas presents I received yesterday, one of which regrettably is going to be returned for a smaller size. Check out these boots: 
Doc Martens is bloomin' madly! Shop here 
An even sweeter gift came from my dear blogger friend Reva, of Reva's Rags 2 Roses. She wrote a wonderful piece about me, and my blogs, complete with an interview. I have to say I was incredibly touched by her effort, it is such a honor to be held in such high esteem! Thank you Reva, so much! What a Christmas present!

Who wears Pearls & Puka Shells? I do!
 Reva recently organized a "Pearl Party" in which she invited a dozen or so bloggers to post a picture of them wearing pearls. I wish I would have remembered this outfit I wore a week ago, mixing up an vintage pearls and puka shells!

Check out Reva's Pearl Party here

 Heavy on the roses: the Citizen Rosebud blooms madly.
Now Wearing: 
  • felted wool sweater from FreeStyle
  • cotton chintz dress from Target
  • vintage under-slip
  • button ring/bead rings
  • felted rosette pin (Morf, from the Midtown Bazaar)
  • Hue tights
  • No name Granny boots

Wishing you all a warm & wonderful holiday!

Loving the DM's!!! That girl knows you/your style well!

Sorry to hear you have the sniffles, have you seen an old post of mine on beating the cold?

Stick a hair dryer up your nose and inhale warm air a few times to kill off the bacteria doll! Oh and lots of vit C!

What I love about you is the fact you play with lots and lots of colours at the same time..
And it works because you have a tremendous bubbly personality..
I can't see in black.. don't know why.. (maybe because I haven't) hahaha
