Things That Make Me Smile

Happy Valentine's Day to Me!

Just had to share my beautiful new clutch that arrived in the mail today from my friend, Bill Devaney, at Abas Leather. You can see their full line of products at http://www.abasaccessories.com.

Maybe I'll turn over a new leaf and be more adventurous. We can always hope.

It's shocking really when you see how well I used to dress:
