I love this coat!  OK, let me give you the background on this coat.  The day after Christmas I did some thrifting with my sister and my super star girlfriend Melanie.  These two ladies are incredible thrifters.  They find hidden gems every time they cross the threshold of a thrift store.  
Ladies, do you dry clean your thrifted finds before you wear them?  I have a rule for thrifting.  I always leave the items in a bag outside in my garage for several days before bringing them in the house.  I dry clean some items and wash others (twice) before wearing them.  However, this coat and other furry items I have thrifted pose a problem.  These items are generally more expensive to dry clean.  I paid $20 for this coat and I don't want to spend the family fortune trying to clean it.  Any suggestions?  It is now hanging on my sun room porch, just in case it has some weird bugs or germs... 

Can you believe this coat came from Sears?  Wow?  This is the only label on the coat, no care instructions or anything.  I am not even sure what type of fur this is?

I discovered these very lovely bracelets recently.  OK, how gorgeous are these bracelets?  Could you just see a few of these stacked up on your arm next to your MK watch???  I certainly can.  I bet you won't believe how inexpensive these little beauties are?  they are all under $100 at Henri Bendel's.  If Mr. P is reading this, I'll take one of each for Valentine's Day or my birthday.  I'm not very subtle, I want these bracelets!!!  What do you think, like~dislike?  Already own one?  Let me know!

I can't wait until all the great Christmas decorations go on sale!!!!  I am already planning on my over the top decorations for next year.  I am thinking more bows and lots more garland.  Does anyone shop the day after Christmas, for Christmas decorations, or am I the only one?

Every Friday is date night, yeeeeaaah!  We adhere to this pretty strictly.  Date night can include holiday shopping, eating, and on this night a Tyler Perry play.  Mr. P and I headed downtown Philadelphia and had a great time.  I guess you can't tell I was having a great time by this picture, huh?  I was giving the valet driver the side eye for promising us if we sent him a text, he would have the car out front of the theatre, NOT.  It seems his phone died, well the battery died or something.  It was freezing outside.  Luckily, for him and his tip I was able to stand in the hotel lobby next door and stay warm.  Don't worry, I tipped him anyway!!!!

Lela Rose for Payless $24.99

I will give you one guess, where I found these shoes?  OK, the suspense is killing me, PAYLESS!  Yes, you heard me right, I said Payless.  Am I the last to know about these??  I am usually a shoe snob, but I am ordering both pairs of these shoes.  I am saying a silent pair to the shoe fairy that they will not hurt my feet.  However, I have paid 3times this amount for a pair of shoes that made me want to weep while walking in them!  That's another story.  Ladies, if any of you have been brave enough to purchase this shoe, please let me know your experience.  I am planning on buying them TODAY!

Sylvia Tcheressi $24.99
These couldn't hurt my feet, could they?  They look painless, right?  Oh Hell, they are $24.99!  I will keep you posted.

 I must apologize for being such a bad blogger lately.  The last few months have been crazy, no CRAZY!  In August when I returned from vacation, I moved!  Let me rewind, I started looking for a new house in July and found one, in one week!  Unheard of, right?  Well, I have been packing, moving, unpacking, getting ready for "back to school ", and Whew just trying to get it all done and not go completely crazy  CRAZY!  I am still unpacking and  adjusting to my new surroundings, but I am loving it.  I love my NEW neighborhood and my NEW neighbors, it has been a great experience thus far.  I must thank my lovely followers for hanging in here with me during this transition.  I will be posting with greater frequency over the next few weeks.  I will include some pics of the new house and my attempt at DECKING the HALLS for CHRISTMAS.  I am accepting volunteers for organizing, painting, and decorating and whatever else you may be talented in, any takers???  Stay tuned for more Christmas tree pics, this time I will use my camera and not my iPhone, I promise!!!!!  Thanks again for Following Besos, Lynn
