Fashion, Fun

Hope. And Possibility. And A Pretty Yellow Dress.


Pretend it’s springtime with us! …



Cynthia skips and twirls around her apartment like a cheerful little kid.

Cynthia:  Springtime is just so lovely!

Marcy:  It’s dead of winter.

Cynthia:  Oh no no no! (she throws out her arms wide) It’s sunny and beautiful and bright colors abound.

California Poppies


Marcy glances outside.

Marcy:  It’s raining and freezing and completely gray.


Rainy and Cold Los Angeles


Cynthia:  What I love about spring is the hope (she twirls) and the possibility (she twirls) that permeate the air.

Marcy:  Are you on drugs?

Cynthia:  New beginnings! (twirl twirl twirl) Daring to dream big! (twirl twirl twirl twirl) And pretty yellow dresses! (twirl twirl twirl twirl twirl)



Marcy:  No. Seriously. Are you on drugs?

Cynthia:  I’m on… Cookies!

Cynthia collapses on the floor in a fit of giggles.

Marcy walks into the kitchen to find Penelope Kitten in a chefs hat and apron busily baking catnip cookies.



Marcy: So exactly how much catnip did you put in to those cookies?

penelope kitten (squeaking):  2 cups.

Marcy:  What? That’s quadruple what the recipe called for! Humans can’t handle that!

penelope kitten:  had to.

Marcy:  Why?!

penelope kitten:  our human needed help.

Marcy:  Well, I know she was feeling stressed out and gloomy but …

Marcy glances into the living room where Cynthia was last seen.

Marcy:  … now she’s trying to make snow angels in our cat box!

penelope kitten:  ok. yeah yeah. so tomorrow let’s disable her facebook app instead.

Marcy:  Seriously.



Hi Lovely Readers! Happy New Year!

It seems that the whole world is mad lately and the turning of the year has only increased the woe and panic. I must admit to getting caught up in it.

But – springtime is my favorite time of year and since retailers are pretending it’s spring in the middle of January I have decided to pretend along with them!

So bring on the hope and the flowers and the bright colors and the smell of fresh grass! And, of course, the pretty yellow dresses!

    HA! Snow angels in the litter box made me laugh out loud!! I love those pretty, pale yellows and that adorable cat apron. I am happy to join you in pretending it’s spring (it actually feels like it in Texas today).

      We lucked out and it feels like spring here today too. But tomorrow – rain! Which is actually good too.

    P Kitty, could you box up some cookies and send them to me? How much per dozen?
    Was the litter box scooped prior to snow angels?
    Wish I could wear those beautiful yellow dresses but yellow makes my skin look green.
    It’s raining there? Will it cure the drought?

    Snow angels in the litter box??? Wow, that’s some good s**t they put in those cookies!
    Send some here. Work is making me hate everyone. A lot. You know, more than usual. (Yeah, Marcy — that’s why we ‘get’ each other!) But I guess it’s a different focus than hating everything out there, right???

    Meanwhile, EVERY photo you picked for this post is stunning. The dress is beautiful. I love me an empire waist, and I need it immediately. But maybe a different color, ’cause pink cheeks + orange hair + yellow dress = not awesome.

    Keep on finding beauty, C…
