allo dear friends! i hope you’re having a grand weekend! it’s sunny here and finally time to put away the sweaters and break out the spring dresses. now that i’m a woman of a certain age, it’s become apparent that i have to adapt my style to reflect a more, if not mature,  refined, me this summer.

but then, no matter where we’re from or what age, some things stand the test of time, even the stone age look can work today.

    Hi Claudia,
    I hate to say this, but the body that looks most like my own is the “Venus of Willendorf!” Damn that ice cream!
    Very interesting to see these statues from so long ago. The “Venus of Monruz” looks so modern, could be from today.
