OMG! We Can Save the Earth!

One day last year I was thrilled by my own ingenuity of the recycling of a Nutter Butter plastic package. I cut a piece of green striped scrapbook paper, wrapped and taped it around the plastic container and used it as a pencil jar. Then, I used the yellow plastic lid as a holder for my soap bottle.

I was all smiles with my intelligence for about two days until my four-year-old niece came home with a piggy bank with legs and snout made out of empty thread spools,  a curlyque tail, and a body made out of a plastic water bottle which she had made at daycare. I was humbled. I oohed and awed. The piggy bank was actually quite good. Consequently, I never made another attempt at a recycled art or even thought about it, until…

I came across the most amazing recycled art which I saw on Etsy that made me yell, “Oh My God!”  I did a little jig in my chair and continued to yell, “Oh My God!” There’s hope for humankind, the economy and the earth!

My mind started racing with all the delicious recycling ideas which popped into my head. I thought about them all night. I could hardly sleep. Ideas, which should have popped into my head with the piggy bank, had I not allowed my earlier endeavor to be squashed by a four-year-old. Yea, my bad! I know…I have my faults. I’ll talk to my shrink about it. LoL!

Anyway, I digress. Get a load of these amazing, OMG! recycled artworks. Each one of these creations made me laugh…in a great way, smile, and feel just grand about human intelligence.

Pop Tab Purse  SOLD!  A chic, and edgy purse made from recycled soda pop tabs accentuated with black nylon yarn. Carry it with you to your upcoming holiday party. Come to think of it, carry this purse with you everywhere you go because this is a gotta-have-purse-of-the-century!

TUFFY – The Robot Terrier SOLD!  The roller skates sold me on this adorable pint size robot. I thought to myself, “It moves!”  I can actually see myself taking Tuffy for a stroll through the neighborhood. If you are allergic to dogs, this is the pet for you. Tuffy’s creator made him from roller skates, a cocktail shaker, and a coffee pot. I also see spoons for ears, miniature binoculars for eyes, and the springy thingy from the inside of a large pen for a tail.  Take him home with you!

Outfit of the Week 11: Line Dancing

Line dancing is not a dance I am good at. I have few and far chances to line dance. Whether I am line dancing to country music or rap music, I can’t get the steps. I’m usually the dancer who is one step behind, or two steps ahead, or three slides somewhere else, and about to get stepped on from every direction. So…

Cowboy Boots:  Now, if I had these amazing red and black cowboy boots on my feet, I wouldn’t mind getting lost in the music. I could just stare at my feet instead of the other dancers’ feet. Made in Brazil, these pretty boots will be with me (or you) for a very long time, because they will be my (or your) favorite boots to wear.

Cropped Jacket:  Yes, I know I will get hot line dancing in this stunning motif and fringed jacket.  However, to keep my sweat from funkin’ up the jacket, I will wear the jacket into the bar, or the wedding reception hall and place it on the back of the chair, and then go dancing. When I have finished dancing, and I am freezing from the air conditioner, then I will put on the jacket and be warm. Later, I will walk out into the cool autumn air and be warm again, while I am thinking about how great I looked on the dance floor when I slid across the floor in an imaginary in-step beat.

Leatherette Mini Skirt  All eyeballs will, of course, be upon me when I wear this gorgeous stitched embroidered leatherette mini skirt. It’s made of stretch material, so that when I move my body into sexy dance positions on the floor, the skirt will move as well. Lined in silk, the skirt can be made with the contrasting white buttons shown on the skirt or blend-in black buttons. My choice will be the contrasting white buttons to catch the eye of the brooding rogue standing against the wall in the dark, dark corner of the bar or the reception hall.

Outfit of the Day 7: Prom…Queen

Oh, I hope he asks me to the prom. My entire outfit is red. Scream! I have this wonderful red dress-which makes me swoon-with an asymmetrical bodice with one strap, and matching glam glam heels with a delicately pretty organza flower at the toe. There are Swarovski crystals which run down the back of the heel and along the side of the instep. Then, I have simply gorgeous, dangly coral earrings, three inches of sexy dangles swinging from silver wires. You should see my ruched clutch, oh, heavenly, be still my heart. The clutch looks like a mini gown all by itself, it’s so beautiful.  It’s made of silk charmeuse and lined in soft golden silk dupioni and a perfect match to the tantalizing swirls of the skirt of the dress. And get this, I already have my tiara with matching faceted red beads set in a beautiful scroll design. Yes, I know the prom queen gets to wear the crown, but when I wear this outfit, I feel like a queen, and, as a woman thinks, so shall she be.

Outfit of the Week 9:Command the Plan

When I think of this next outfit, I see a woman with a clipboard, and pen, and black glasses and her hair loosely pulled back with a no-nonsense expression on her face. Her attitude is not the “B” word, but the “A” word. No, not that “A” word. It’s the other “A” word called “Assertiveness” that gets this woman called the “B” word by the “M” word.

Outfit of the Week 9:  Command the Plan starts off with a “new” pair of red luscious Gucci pumps, excuse me, red satin Gucci pumps. Dark red satin Gucci’s add to the drama of this “Command the Plan” outfit. As soon as you put on these, your day will fly-by and all your projects will be done before deadline because you will have delegated responsibilities.  These are your hit-the-ground-running shoes followed by an equally hit-the-ground-running clothing ensemble.

While the dark grey secretary blouse with the puffed, ruffled sleeves is right in line with fall’s trend of ruffles, it will catch the “M” word off guard which is what you want. Looking like it just came off the manufacturer’s clothing rack, wear this no-nonsense top, and the “M” word will think twice about giving you nonsense.

Unfortunately, for you and me, these equally no-nonsense pants sold before I could write the post. Yes, I could have changed them, but, I had the pictures done, and I like this outfit. Maybe you can talk Ureshii into making another pair for you, because, yum, these are some sleek pants. 

Growl! Not only will the “M” word be caught off guard, by your feminine, yet, the other “A” word style and do whatever you want within legal limits at the office, he’ll be the one growling when you command the plan wearing this trendy, long, and sexylicious scarf. He’ll be downright confused, but give him some chocolate and continue on your day.  According to some scientific study I read last year, chocolate makes the “M” word temporarily loopy, but that’s not something the “M” word needs to know.

Dazed, confused, and dazzled will be the reaction you receive when you wear these golden Goddess earrings. Oval hoops dangle from 14k gold-filled earwires. Yes, the “M” word will be delightfully dazzled.

Whenever someone…or the “M” word is behind on a project, tap your equally dazzling gold luster and topaz crystal glass watch…and smile. Make sure the expression in your eyes is firm because someone…or the “M” word will try to take advantage of you if he thinks your smile means a sunny disposition. He will try to use…chocolate logic on you.

At the end of the day, when your plan has been completed, and you’ve added the finishing touches, and reaped the glory and accolades of a job well done, then pick up your gorgeous and spacious, Corgi Black Leather Backpack, swing it over your shoulder, and glide on out the door, for tomorrow, it starts all over again. You’ll have to run faster since the chocolate will have worn off.

Outfit of the Week 3: U.S.A. Red, White, and Blue

I drew inspiration for this week’s Outfit of the Week: U.S.A. Red, White, and Blue from an outfit I discovered this past spring in my closet. I  searched Etsy for an outfit similar to my closet outfit, but mid-week, I changed my mind.

It’s the middle of the summer, and who wears a suede jacket, a long skirt, and boots? Alright, there might be someone, somewhere, so, I will save that outfit for when the temperature drops.

Yea, I remember I posted an Autumn Crisp Orange outfit just last week. Well, I don’t wanna do a cold temperature outfit two weeks in a row. Besides, it’s the 4th of July weekend.  It’s a time to remember why the US of A  is the greatest country in the world. Ok, I am biased. I haven’t ever lived anywhere else. No, I take that back. I lived in Turkey when I was three years old for a few months. I don’t have any memory of it.

It is a time to remember our soldiers who have fought, who continue to fight and who have died in foreign lands.

It’s a time to celebrate with our family and friends our unique heritage of all peoples.  It’s a time to celebrate our many freedoms, while eating hotdogs, spring rolls, hamburgers, pelmeni, steak, tamales,  jerk chicken, pancit,  crispy fish,  potato pancakes, pork and beans, Polish Meatballs, ham hocks, lentil stuffed peppers, bratwurst, watermelon, anise cookies, and cheesecake, ice cream and apple pie, and guzzling beer, sipping wine, and eating more food before we flop down on a blanket, or fall into a chair, or rest at the window, and watch the dazzling display of beauty in the evening sky.

The U.S.A. Red, White, and Blue outfit starts off with a pretty silver and white metallic, and cottony, sleeveless turtleneck with a defined “squiggle” pattern. It is made of acrylic and is a size small.  SOLD!

Complimenting the “squiggle” pattern of the turtleneck is a “fireworks” pattern of a 1920’s beautiful and burned silk velvet, vintage cobalt blue scarf. Wear it at the neck, pin it to your shoulder or wear it at the waist.
