I got me to Japan Fair

0411_002

After Gidge’s said Get Thee To Japan Fair the other day, I knew I better head over to Japan Fair  as soon as possible.  Japan Fair is raising money for ShelterBox a charity that helps people who are displaced whether by natural disasters or the manmade disaster of political violence providing them with a box containing emergency supplies necessary for survival. They do amazing work all around the world and deserve your support.

However, there’s ample reason to go in addition to supporting ShelterBox. These boots, for example, are reason enough for a trip to the fair. From Coco, you can wear them with or without socks. They come in several colors but given it’s springtime, I opted for the lovely blue.

Stupid Little Dogs

I am not a dog person. This is pretty well known. I kind of DISLIKE dogs. Not the actual dogs. The idea of dogs. I’ve actually known some dogs in this world that I liked quite well. I even loved one or two.  But no, in general, I am not into dogs.

My grandparents however, had a set of old lady friends, “The Beason Girls” they were called, and they were sisters in law whose husbands had died. They loved little dogs. They were the sort of ladies who always had on gloves and a hat, and their shoes and purse matched. They brought their little dogs with them wherever they went.

When I was young, I was always curious about their dogs, they seemed to go through a LOT of dogs. Later I learned, that this was due to vacationing in Florida, along a freshwater canal. If you ever lived in Florida, you know that sending little dogs outdoors in some areas is akin to chumming for alligators. Thus, the Beason Girls had a lot of new little dogs.

I would ask my grandfather what types of dog, their dogs where, and he’d invariably say “Oh some stupid little dog.” And when they were arriving he’d wonder, “I wonder what stupid little dog they got this time?”

So when I saw this be-sweatered stupid little dog at The Mens Department from BIRDY well, you know it had to be mine.

Because – I can only HOPE to ever be as glamorous as The Beason Girls.

Tokyo Blues

0116_004

Jazz and blues music have long been popular in Japan where Japanese musicians have worked hard to transform and adapt these uniquely American musical forms into something new. Jazz musicians do not want to be the Japanese version of Sonny Rollins or John Coltrane, but find their own unique language of jazz. For example, Ryochi Hattori the rhythms and harmonies of jazz with the pentatonic scales and folk melodies of Japan. So it’s a pleasure to find a lovely Tokyo little blues club in Second Life. Thanks for the tip, Whimsy!

Not A Real Green Shirt, That’s Cruel

I have a confession. Pink isn’t actually my favorite color. I love pink. I swaddle myself in pink at every opportunity. But the color I love MOST is a delicious acid green chartreuse green, green of the variety that it’s got yellow in it. I love it. It’s one of those colors that melds well with other things and gives your look a POP. Continue reading

Barrier Methods

If there is anything you learn growing up in the land of the ice and snow, it’s that you need to stay dry and keep the wet cold off of you. Layers, and the right ones are the key. You’ll get cold, but you won’t be TOO miserable by the time you get home to peel off  your frozen outerwear and warm back up.

Being warm is a bugaboo for me. As a child, we had a house with out insulation. After the blizzard hit, we spent many nights sleeping in every item of clothing we owned, on the floor in front of the fireplace.

So, I won’t be cold. Not ever, if I can help it. Continue reading

Thursday Child Is Full of Woe

Girl Thursday is a newer to me store with an intriguing name. I’m wearing a holiday release of a festive cable knit tank top – perfect, cuz I live on the beach.

I am interested in the name, because I want to know what it means. Is it Girl Thursday because it’s not quite as good as Girl Friday?  (You youngsters can Google that shit.) Or is it as in, Thursday’s Child is Full of Woe? Continue reading

Dec16b_006

I just love the sweater vest from Tee*fy for this round of Collabor88. My Mom would knit me one every year just like them, though she used this super-fine, lightweight yarn that was so soft. I loved them all. Azure Electricteeth layered the sweater vest with an oxford-cloth shirt though she didn’t tuck the shirt in which would have made my mom tsk-tsk and not let me out the door. She was a stickler!
