They're Baaaack...

Hey friends! Guess who's back? Yep, me. While my blog has been in a winter hibernation, I haven't. I've actually been getting some stuff done like redecorating the house, sewing, catching up on some reading (professional and pleasure) and visiting a few blogs unrelated to fashion/thrifting.

I know there's no way I can go back to each and everyone's blog and catch up on the last three months. That would take me until mid-summer to do. So I'm counting you all to give me the highlights of your blog/lives in the comments you leave. I want ALL the details on romances, children, fabulous thrift finds, fashion hits and misses, vacations and the like.

Guess who else is back? Look at the Tommy Hilfiger ad above for a big hint? That's right. The older couple that had mysteriously gone missing a few seasons ago. I mentioned it here last fall. I'd like to think that somebody over at Hilfiger Inc. read my post and broached the subject in one of their board meetings. I'd like to think that person said, "Hey, why don't we bring back the old mature couple for our spring/summer 2013 campaign?". I'd like to think that person got a promotion and a whopping pay raise for my such a brilliant idea. All I have to say is, whoever you are, you owe me big time! But I'll settle for a salted caramel hot chocolate (with extra whip cream) from Starbucks, and we'll just keep it between ourselves.

Great to be back y'all. I'll be getting around to visit you over the next week.


  1. Hey Sheila!! Sounds like you've been mighty busy. Always nice to take a break from things and come back refreshed....
    As for me, I'm still wearing the same old clothes. ;)

  2. Welcome Back Shelia!!

    Taking a break can be a good thing, I took a break at the end of last year into the first of this year and it was much needed. Had a lot going on in my life and needed the break to re-group!!

  5. You look vaguely familiar... do I know you? Oh Sheila, it's good to see you back.

    My big news is I bought a cute new car (Fiat Abarth). A little purchase with a big effect on my daily happiness. Looking forward to hearing more about your hiatus activities.

  6. So glad you're back!! I've missed you. It's important to follow your own flow, so I'm glad you're well.

    Looking forward to staying in touch and sharing the joy of our thrifted treasure.

    Love, Jean

    be wearing her mother, Anne Boleyn's famous pearl necklace with the hanging initial "B" with pearls attached. I read concerning this else where and believe the painting could be the family portrait of HenryVII, Jane Seymour, young Edward VI, Mary I, Elizabeth I, along with Henry's parents, Henry VIII
    and Elizabeth of York. I think it is interesting she
    was allowed to wear this necklace within the painting.
