For my birthday on the 22nd, my good friend Silke generously created a painting for me! How fun is that! I just love it (or "her," which is how I think of this beauty) and have her proudly displayed in my living room.
Silke talks about how she did this painting on her blog, so if you'd like to read all the details, please do visit Metamorphosis.
I've never had anyone paint something for me before, so this is a very special gift. Thank you, Silke! You are a special friend!
I’ve been thinking a lot about the TV series Mad Men after having viewed it on DVD. And I know that for you lucky folks with cable, Season Three is starting up again tomorrow.
Today I was browsing Etsy.com after having purchased 2 vintage cocktail glasses this morning for my own soon-to-launch Etsy shop. I wanted to see if there were any similar items on Etsy, so I searched on the word cocktail. That’s how I came up with my brilliant idea: a Mad Man Cocktail Party! Doesn’t it sound like fun? You and your guests can dress up in your 50s and 60s attire, sip martinis out of vintage cocktail glasses, and munch on hor d'oeuvres. I think it would be a blast!
Very inspiring eulogy by Maria Shriver for her mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver. What an amazing woman she was. I think it is fair to say that she was "a true original." Listening to this makes me want to get out there and make a difference. I felt the same way when President Obama was sworn in, and for awhile I did volunteer with underprivileged teens. I think it's time for me to look around for something else I can do in my community.
