charming, just charming.

I love every thing about a charm bracelet. Each time you visit a new place, you are on search for the perfect charm. It makes a vacation even more exciting (you can't beat a reason to buy jewelry, can you?)

I have charms of places and times I have loved in my life. I have a Space Needle charm I got before I even knew I'd once live in the Northwest - and now here I am - with my charm bracelet and my memory.

I found Charming Darling on a search for something else.... They have some cool vintage versions of these fav of mine... for a decent price. Check a few out and reminiscence with me...

miss mary mack is back.

i feel an advertisement is a good one - when it touches me, whether that be by a memory, a feeling, an emotion.

recently Nabisco reminded me a school rhyme we played a recess with their "Recess is back" campaign (100-calorie packs.)

Here's to play time memories - if only we could head to recess every day after lunch....AND if only those 100-calorie Oreo packs really tasted like double stuff Oreos!

“Miss Mary Mack”

Miss Mary Mack - Mack Mack
All dressed in black - black black
With silver buttons - buttons buttons
All down her back - back back

She asked her Mother - Mother Mother
For fifteen cents - cents cents
To see the elephants - elephants elephants
Jump the fence - fence fence

They jumped so high - high high
They touched the sky - sky sky
And they never came back - back back
Til the forth of July - ly ly

soul searching.

Animals have that way of touching deep inside your soul and speaking to you. Recently I visited the local Woodland Park Zoo - where I could stand face to face (behind plexi glass of course) with the Mama gorilla and her new baby "Zooma". I fell in love. She is so curious and so beautiful. Animals, nature, music, art -- something is stirring inside me right now. It's time to do something creative and something right.

Looks like blamestorm is a'coming....

Wow, these corporate flash cards are amazing. Easy to read (with a smile) flash cards to use in your office. Too funny NOT to share.

Check out the slideshow.

Reality or TV?

Ever since I could remember, I wanted to live in NYC (and did for 9+ years), I love peter pan collars (I believe 1/2 my closet has these..), paten leather shoes/bags/anything! (enough said), and I love redheads (married one actually...)

Did this all come from the TV show "Family Affair"??? As a little girl, I it was one of my favorite shows. I watched the reruns and had a vintage Buffy doll that played oh so well with my many Barbies.

Wow, what a weird realization.
