thumpity thump thump

Are you ready for this? Today we had our first snow! It came down so softly in really big beautiful flakes. I got ready for school in a hurry today and my outfit turned out really well. It's funny...it seems the less time I have to put an outfit together = a better outfit...hmmm...

I went for Parisian chic on the inside...black leggings, black tank, long drapey cardigan, and red flats. Then I added a vintage velvet hat and some black necklaces. Then I realized it was cold outside (what an aha! moment!). Last night I took down most of my fall jackets to the basement and replaced them in our coat closet with my winter ones, including this beautiful vintage (FAUX) fur jacket. I got it a thrift store for less than $10, and was soooo excited to whip it out this winter.



Um, have you ever seen me look this chic? I didn't think it was possible! I am in love with this coat...it's so warm and furry. The best thing is that it doesn't have a smell (you know...old coats, especially fur ones usually acquire some sort of smell before they're donated or put for sale)! And it fits me perfectly. I love the big collar...


Now, some dancing, spinning, enjoying the snowfall pictures!




Snow puts me in such a good mood...that is, when I don't have to drive in it! It's so beautiful and makes you feel so at peace. Sigh.

Okay, now I'm hippity hopping off to work...hugs and kisses to you cuties!

If there's one thing I truly enjoy about art it's how in depth and detailed they are...okay so that's two LOL.
Here's another great statue "Cupid and Psyche". I'm a sucker for a love story, and I fell in love with this the moment I saw it.
