Easy Urban Hip, Week 5; Shades of Gray...

I love movies in beautiful black and white. I love photos in black and white, nothing compares. If only life's choices were as simple, clear and precise as black and white...but then, of course, there is that famous quote about having a messy life is how you know you've lived. I believe that totally, although it's a hard belief to come by. Life needs to be in color, even if only in the imagination. What's wrong and what's right should not always be black and white. I believe there is plenty of room for gray areas. Do you?


Even if you don't agree with me on the gray areas of right and wrong, you must agree with me on the items I have chosen for week 5 of the Easy Urban Hip Series. You will have it all with these gorgeous items. There is black, white and gray in all their glory. You can find all of these unique and one of a kind creations on Etsy. Just click on the links that I have provided for you below. Thanks for stopping by...

Happy Anniversary To Us...


Today is my wedding anniversary and in honor of this, I am posting a card made by one of my favorite Etsy artists, Helen of Pepperina Press. Her cards are above and beyond, as you can see. On top of her extreme talent is the fact that she is an exceptional person as well. So here's to you, Helen. And here's to my husband, Ron, who is above and beyond exceptional in every way.

Easy Urban Hip, Week 4; I'm SO Glad I'm a Girl...

At the risk of sounding old-fashioned, I must confess that I love having the door held open for me. I adore having chairs pulled out for me. Is it wrong to be glad that I don't have to mow the lawn, or wash the truck, or take the trash to the curb? I think Doris Day phrased it perfectly in "Please Don't Eat The Daisies" when she told her hubby, played by the gentlemanly David Niven, "We broads own the world". I actually enjoy doing many of the daily drudgeries that all the women's movement scorned; laundry, ironing, cooking meals for my family, wearing makeup, shaving under my arms...I even miss the big hair days of the 90's! So here's to us "broads" for owning the world and admitting that it's glorious to be a girl. The items I chose for this week's series are a perfect example of why we love to be females...enjoy! All of these items can be purchased at Etsy. Just click on the links I have provided.
