sitting with Holland...

and above all
watching with glittering eyes
the whole world around you 
because the greatest secrets are
hidden in the most unlikely places.
those who do not believe in magic
will never find it!
~Roald Dahl

on Sunday, we will be "sitting" with berry blue eyes for the
very first time...while Mommy and Daddy  
step out for a meal together at a nearby restaurant.
every time we are near her, we are totally captivated by the magic of love!

trouver la magie!

February's pink post!

last October, i started a monthly pink post feature.
~ just checking, because i love you! ~
most of you know that i am a breast cancer survivor.
it was detected EARLY. that's what it's all about.

at the same time i began a Pinterest board called 
Pink Ribbon! before BC, i really wasn't into PINK!
i must admit, i have since become accustomed to it!

i will continue to post my subtle reminder once a month, with
an occasional explanation now and then for the new visitors to 34th street!

so without further ado, i'm...

a little touch of tangerine tango, on eating cake for breakfast and a surprise!

are you ready to tango

Kate Spade Spring 2012

we have a proclamation in our house! 
it's perfectly fine to eat cake for breakfast
on your birthday! 


i told you that i have one more little giftie for February!

(sort of like the bag that the goodies come in at the award shows!)
New York  Los Angeles ... and yes, Seattle!

now, i'm going to let you down a bit. i did not go. a girl that needs new
carpeting and a new deck has to place a real Kate bag on hold.
there was lot's of promo going on at Nordy's... and
 it's not often that Seattle is on the marquee with NY and LA, so when i
saw the bag...i thought it might make a fun gift to send to one of you
 via the Emerald City!

it would make a great lunch or market bag!

Kate's name IS on the bag! it's a bit difficult to see in the's on the black diagonal bar.

if you would like a chance to win it, just leave a little comment!

i'll announce the winner next Monday!

how's that for a boring Tuesday?
