hello and happy whatever you celebrate! i haven't posted in a few days, and i'll tell you why: i am effing exhausted. i don't know that i would be able to describe myself as a "night person," since i usually fall asleep watching a movie at about 12 pm, but i can safely say i am not now nor have ever been a morning person, and waking up at 6 am most days (or 4 am this morning, to be there at 5 am) is really taking its toll on my desire to get dressed up after coming home in the afternoon covered in cake batter. don't get me wrong, i love the job and i'll totally get used to the early rising, but at the moment i am absolutely wiped out.
however, a couple reasons for posting today, before the holidays come and i head out of town; one, of course, to wish you all a lovely couple of days, hopefully a nice break from work and a good fews meals. i baked pashka to bring to sam's house and am very excited at the prospect of sleeping in for a couple of days. secondly, though, i wanted to do a post dedicated to the lovelymiss kennedy holmes, who has not only a lovely blog but also a fantastic etsy shop. i recently was lucky enough to win a contest on the equally beautiful and charming erin of calivintage's blog, and the prize was a surprise vintage package from kennedy. i received it a couple of days ago and was completely taken with it: a vintage hatbox tied with yarn, topped of with a lula and filled to the brim with vintage goodies, including a slip, a beautiful beaded cardigan, pillbox fur hat, and two gorgeous purses, one containing two hairpieces and a necklace. i wear the necklace and cardigan here, and hold one of the purses; the rest is soon to come, as i looove it all. thanks erin and kennedy!
skirt: gift from a friend, i shortened it (and now i can see the thread i left hanging, oops)
shoes: steve madden
necklace: kennedy holmes
cardigan: kennedy holmes
all right, i feel like an old lady but it's 10:27 and i can barely keep my eyes open. i'm going to close them, and my computer. until after the holiday - have a lovely weekend, safe travels to all!
