ATTENTION GRABBER

I don't even know how the comment came about, or even what post the comment was made on, but awhile back faithful reader and perpetual pig Cali Boi, in one of his comments, dared me to do the Crotch Grab Challenge. I don't even remember it going around, I think he may have made the whole thing up. I laughed it off. But then a got his email and he said if I did the challenge and posted the pictures,( that the Lad was very happy to take), he would donate $100 to a charity of my choice. So the Bucks County ASPCA is more funded as of today!!!!!!!! Apparently it doesn't take much to entertain some people's wiles.
 
 
and this proves I can be bought. After all, were all whores, were just haggling over the price.
 
Thank you Cali for your generous gift!!!!!

AUTUMN AT THE CASA.......

 
Autumn has finally arrived I believe here on the East coast, as you can see from my sweater.... finally!!! That is one thing about the fall and winter months I like, SWEATERS!!!!!! Of course, that will also bring some fall touches to the Casa du Borghese.......
 
In the living room,  this year I choose to go with real dried branches of various trees, with the colors of the leaves being so vibrant this year. I also added in some Witch Hazel blooms......
 
 
 Yes......I'm still 6 years old.......
 
This metal star was actually a finial of a old building I found at a architectural salvage shop. It was converted into a candle holder, and makes a very cool design around the room when lit......

 
Finishing out the bookcase are my favorite pieces of pottery, and glass vases along with a huge hurricane and one of my signs of me being around.......peacock feathers!!!
 
 
In the kitchen, on this cabinet, which does not house china, but my bar, is a real pumpkin, along with favorite urn and vase.... along with dried berry branches, cat tails, and yellow Witch Hazel. Matilda, my black crow, sits on the ceramic pumpkin!!!!!
 
 
In the apothecary's jar this season are a variety of gourds, dried pomegranates, pods, acorns, and a  bunch of dried leaves, with seed stems and dried orange slices......

 
whilst these two keep a watchful eye on the birds..........

 
The Victorian birdcage I found last year now has a small topiary in it along with another jack o lantern.....
 
 
Have you yet noticed all the candles???? I have already stock up. As a regular reader might know I'm a huge candle whore!!!! I'll take candle light over real light any night. On any given night, it looks like a seance is taking place with upwards of 20 or more candles. Nice to know I'm not the only thing lit!!!!!!
 
This dear head still keeps a watchful eye. Still bothers the Lad when he is here. I have no idea why? His head is usually facing the head board anyway.
 
 
Meanwhile more candles and another fall foliage arrangement of some really cool finds......
 
 
One of my favorite things at night, if one of my suitors isn't here.. is curling up and cocooning in my favorite tapestry throw......
 
......and it's definitely that time of year for my favorite bedtime stiffener of ginger liqueur......

 
Cheers darlings to a swell Autumn!!!!!!

MONDAY ALREADY?????

MONDAY ALREADY?!?!?
 
I swear where does the time go?!? Hope everyone had a glorious weekend! Mine was very relaxing and enjoyable. The Lad was in town for a visit for my soon to be here birthday. He also helped me select a new towne car, which was un-planned event, more of an impulse really. It was time. The rest was spent with very quality time in bed!!!! Hence why I was in no hurry to get out of bed today. We had a lovely, and lively visit, and I wasn't quite done playing minx yet, hence our cat theme today. With Halloween impending how can we go without our beloved black cats!?!?
 
soooooo mysterious.......

LAMBERTVILLE FOOD FAIR...FOODIES UNITE

 
 
It was a crazy busy work week, this week. And what a better way to relax than with some good food! Thursday night a friend of mine had invited myself and another as her guest to the Lambertville Food Fair, the second annual. Now, I am far from a foodie mind ya. I have no idea of world renowned chefs, or their restaurants, or read foodie blogs or food periodicals. But I do enjoy myself some good food! So Thursday afternoon found me leaving work early to enjoy some fall night frolic. The Food Fair was in Lambertville, with  9 blocks lined with food trucks and well known restaurants from New Hope, Doylestown, Philadelphia and areas of New Jersey. The first thing up were some afternoon drinks at Martine's followed by a  trip to the Lambertville House Hotel for another drink and a early appetizer.....


Burrata! Fresh mozzarella filled with a creamy oozing center. Drizzled with real olive oil and served with fresh toasted garlic bread. Then it was off to meet up with another guest and start hitting the food vendors. And I'm here to tell you, everything smelled and looked so good. You name the food and nationality and it was represented. You may say I ate like a field hand and gobbled like a hog!!!!!
 
lobster and crab bisque
 
 
Apple and Bacon quesadilla
 
 
Up next was a delish beef Bar-B-Q with cole slaw on the top! OMG!

 
 
Next was my favorite part....four shredded chicken taco's loaded!!!!
 
 
Then it was off to the Tomasello Winery for some wine tastings
 
 
MEATBALLS!!!!!

 
Then it was time for dessert......
 
 
a strawberry and banana crepe!!!!!!

 
What a great night! The weather was beautiful, and the food amazing! Luckily I have a high metabolism, and with my job, I work a lot off. Of course truth be told, the Lad will be here this weekend, so that should also work some more off. We haven't seen each other since the end of August. blussssssshing......
