Living La Vida Wee

I wouldn’t say I could be featured on A&E’s “Hoarders.”  However my garage could easily be the cartoon they roll before showing the main intervention. I have always kept a clean and tidy, clutter-free home.  When you share a 975 square-foot space with others (yep, you read that right:  975 square feet), you pretty much have to. I’m not complaining.  Mr Wonderful and I chose cottage-style living.  We enjoy the cozy feel of a small space.  And neither of us {Read More}

“Designer Valentine” Giveaway

I am not particularly interested in designers or their labels.  I am certain they are even less interested in outfitting my plus size body.  This works out well for all concerned, as my purchases have always been based on the way an item looks, fits and feels rather than who made it. Because there are so few designers making anything larger than a 12 or 14, and because I’m never actively seeking out specific lines, they rarely find their way {Read More}

Now I’m lucky to navigate myself out of my pajamas before high noon. While I have and always have had an uncanny sense of the actual time (I know, for instance, that it’s almost 11 am without having to glance at a clock), I no {Read More}
