Better than ever ...

No, I had not planned on redesigning the kitchen and starting over (besides, knowing that Marilyn of Our Victorian Cottage has the best retro kitchen ever, what's the point?)


... and, no, I'm not trying to find a new family and really start everything over again


... and I have no intention of starting over with an all-new headboard decór


... nor do I plan to start over and begin wearing the new French jockey shorts

...and, though I wouldn't mind starting over in the bathroom with a fountain, wainscotting, stained glass, Empire tin ceiling, live orchids next to the granite and onyx pedestal sink, fixtures carved from black Italian marble and - what else? - gold, air fragrant with 80,000 fresh violets used per month, and a rocking chair placed at the changing nook. No, not even that is where I'm starting over.

No, I am simply sharing a moment with Candace Bergen from the movie "Starting Over," which I remember from (high school?) well, a long time ago. I remember laughing so hard I started crying. I hope you enjoy it, too!



watching that always makes me weak


I have to show you an amazing creation.
This absolutely astounding 32"doll by artist/genius William Bezek.
The face - the clothes - the attention to every detail imaginable - is perfection. I am so in love with this piece! I would enjoy seeing him every morning greeting me into the studio! To see more - and you really should! - click on the image below which will take your to Monsieur Bezek's site. And click on the image above to get a much larger version and look at those clothes!

Be sure to visit Christine's Dollybelle's Peepshow, where yours truly has been chosen as Sir. March! I'm always happy getting a new royal headdress! She creates some of the most delightful whimsies and treasures - you'll enjoy the blog. And tell her Sir March sent you over!
The mother of this kid should be smacked. Really, now, does he even have a fighting chance?!When it comes to art, the classics are always my favorite...

So this supposed to be romantic? It my day, she was called a tart!

TA DA!
We have a winner folks!

JulietK of JulietK was the first person to recognize these gams
as the belongings of the always enchanting Juliet Prowse! She even knew the photo was taken for the cover of Life Magazine in 1962!
It was during the filming of "Can-Can" in 1959 that she captured the international spotlight. Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev visited the set of the film and after Prowse performed a rather saucy can-can for the Russian leader, he proclaimed her dance "immoral." Little did Khrushchev know that he was a great press agent, because the publicity brought Prowse considerable attention in the United States. From there, her career took off.

Juliet, email me your address and I'll get your prize out in the mail to you!

Do I have smart readers, or what?!

Well, I guess that's enough Revelry today ... Dusty seems to be antsy to go out for our afternoon walk. Ugh. It's raining and sleeting and I don't want to do it. He's darned lucky I love him - because a cat would be one heckuva lot easier!

Now, go make something beautiful!
