TOMATO RED

12-1-09 2

Do you have a favorite color?  My answer would most likely depend on when you ask me, but today it's tomato red.  I love, love, love the bright orange undertones of this cheery color and even more when it's paired with stripes.  It's just so classic and Parisian.

Would you hate me if I said I got this blazer at Goodwill last week for $2.50?  It's part of a skirt suit.  I can't wait to alter the skirt so I can sport it sometime soon!  It would be the perfect Christmas skirt.

Iggy had his yearly check up at the vet today.  He's sooooo dramatic when it comes to getting his shots.  You've never heard such carrying on!  It took 4 people to draw a teeny, tiny vial of blood from him.  That's 1 person per 3.175 pounds.  Then, he comes waltzing back into the room with a big ole' smile on his face.  Silly animal...

I grabbed my pictures before leaving the house this morning and was slapped in the face by the brisk December wind.  Brrrrr...  I toughed it out for the photos and then ran back inside for a hat, scarf and gloves.  Remember these pins from over the summer?  I finally got to try them out!

    Now that I have a fully operational sewing machine again, I have no excuse to pass up on all the cute skirt suits I see while thrifting.
