Metallic Pleats & Pups!

LAST WEEK WE HAD SNOW, AND I WENT TO MY SISTER’S HOUSE TO CELEBRATE GRADUATIONS , A BELATED NEW YEAR, AND MANY BIRTHDAYS!    MY CHILDREN, AND MY NIECES AND NEPHEW’S – SAVE ONE- , WERE THERE,  AND ALL OF OUR DOGS.  I WAS HAPPY TO SEE ALL OF THEM ! MANY OF THEM WERE TRAVELING OVER CHRISTMAS .

I WORE A METALLIC PLEATED SKIRT, NOW 4 YEARS OLD, AND A SIMPLE CASHMERE SWEATER BELTED AT THE WAIST. SEATED ON HER SOFA, I AM THINKING IF I REMEMBERED ALL OF THE GIFTS?

I DID! AND I THINK THEY ENJOYED THEM. THE PARTY WAS SUCH FUN. I GOT TO SEE MY ADULT CHILDREN PLAYING PING PONG,  AND TRIED GETTING SHOTS OF THEM, BUT TO NO AVAIL. IN FACT,  THAT IS WHY THIS NEXT PHOTO OF ME IS SO AWKWARD. I GENERALLY POSE WELL ENOUGH, GOOD POSTURE, AND SO FORTH.   BUT I WAS PREOCCUPIED WITH THE PING PONG MATCH.

HMM, THEY ARE NECK AND NECK, AND MY DAUGHTER APPEARS TO BE WINNING.

BELOW IS A CLOSE UP. I WORE A LIGHTWEIGHT PLEATHER JACKET IN CASE IT WAS COLD INSIDE, BUT NO, MY THOUGHTFUL SIS HAD THE FIREPLACE ON. SORRY I DID NOT GET A SHOT OF THAT. 

 

A SHOT OF MY HEADBANDS AND AN INTERESTING PERSECTIVE BELOW. THERE IS A THEME IN THIS SHOT OF ANIMAL PRINTS; THE GIRAFFE PRINT RUG AND THE ZEBRA PRINT OF MY ARMANI CASHMERE SWEATER. NICE WITH THE SPARKLE OF JEWELS.

THE NECKLACE, WHICH I LOVE FROM KCSIGNATURES,COM IS ONE OF A KIND, BUT THE LINK TAKES YOU TO THEIR INSTAGRAM AND YOU CAN SHOP OTHERS!

A SHOT OF THE NICELY ARRANGED GIFTS BEFORE THEY WERE OPENED.

A MOSAIC LAZY SUSAN THAT I MADE FOR MY SISTER YEARS AGO. I ALSO MADE JEWELRY AT THAT TIME. I USED BROKEN DISHES, THAT I CUT INTO PIECES, AND I USED STAINED GLASS TOO.

AND LAST, BUT NOT LEAST, WE BROUGHT LUCY TO MY SISTER’S TOO!
