Merry Christmas!

It's nice to have friends.

One of my blogger-friends, who uses the name Toadmama, created this seasonal header for me.  Isn't it cute?

In addition to possessing computer skills, TM is a skilled photographer; her blog frequently displays beautiful pictures.  She is also a motorcyclist.  You have to admire that!

Tonight, I had a little Christmas miracle.  I had some time to waste so I wandered into a discount store I'd never been to before (Fox's).  Browsing the racks, I found a gorgeous Jessica Simpson dress.  It has a full skirt (which Freeda and Sheila keep urging me to wear), a large herringbone print, nice woolen texture and, inside, a pretty red lining and petticoat.

The dress came with a skinny black belt but I replaced it with a cuter skinny mustard-yellow belt.  I'll probably add my yellow scarf to complete the look.  The proportions of the dress, with the full-skirt, should create a nicer silhouette than my other dresses.  At least that's what Freeda and Sheila keep telling me.  :)

I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  Feel free to share your holidays experiences: I care about you!


  1. Thanks for the kind remarks, Ralph. So I'm not the only one who can go back through old blog posts and borrow other people's pics. :-)

    I just sent you some different sized headers. I was hoping Blogger would adjust it automatically for you. One of the other versions I sent should work better. you gotta get your smiling face in there, too.

    Have a fabulous holiday!

  2. Thanks buddy. Found one that works. The size Blogger uses is 840 pixels wide, so your 800 worked best. I appreciate your efforts.

  3. That is a Great Header !! Very Cute, I Love it.

  4. Ahh, that header is so cute! I can't wait to see your new dress. I had no idea Jessica Simpson had a clothing line. I thought she just did shoes (which, I must admit, look very beautiful). Merry Christmas Eve, Ralph.

  5. Ok, now I have to see the dress !

  6. Ooh, that sounds like an awesome dress! I can't wait to see it on you!
