ISTANBUL (not CONSTANTINOPLE)

 
I'm off to New York City for two days of visual planning and spring/summer previews of visual installations, directives, fashion trends, new designers we will be getting, seeing new store elements and design and some show room visits to see first hand spring summer fashion. HOPEFULLY my future husband Marc Jacobs will be on hand!!!!! There will also be time for some dinning and a few pit stops, so it won't be ALL work. But the rumors of me going to see Brazilian go go boys is exaggerated. See you all end of the week............

 
COME THINK OF IT, why did we change the name to New York City.......

GRANDE DAME

 
 
Misty Eyez has gone from “just another drag face” to a much-admired community sensation in less than 10 years. She did this through self-promotion and by becoming one of the community’s biggest supporters.Each year she performs hundreds of hours, pro bono, supporting almost any charity or fundraiser that asks her to help out — and many times they don’t have to ask as she usually asks them first if they need her assistance. It’s hard to find an important community event where Misty isn’t present. She is also the creator of the popular Trannie Palace on Sunday nights at Bill’s Filling Station on Wilton Drive. Misty has become a mentor to aspiring new talent and has a daily blog on YouTube called Misty Minutes, where she gives tips on everything from dating to applying mascara. Now that is a queen, and how it is done!

MONDAY..I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU.....

Said no one in the whole history. Really, it's Monday again?!?!? I'm not amused......
 
 
I go even further to say I'm downright shocked and dramatically upset....
 
 
It will take a miracle and some coffee or two to get me through, or something. Will I and Mondays ever come together and live in harmony?!? I guess we may never know.......
 
 
well, I guess just grab Monday by the balls and go with it!!!!!
 
 
Have a good one!!

AUTUMNAL MORN

I sure hope everybody is having a very nice weekend!?!? After my busy week at work, I decided to take it relatively easy around the Casa du Borghese this weekend. I got caught up on some of my shows and my blogging. I also broke out my autumn d├ęcor, yes, it's true, and to my dismay I gave in and put summer to bed, as much as it broke my heart. I'll share with what I did soon!!! But it was still a very nice weather weekend, beautiful, sunny, and warm temps though, so I was happy as a calm.  I'll be heading into Philly later for brunch, but early this morning when I took Buster out, I noticed all the Zinnias are vibrant as all get out. I just love zinnias, there definitely a happy flower......

 
And of course the feeding frenzy on the window sill  brought the usual suspects. I have the feeling Bob, Anne Marie and the Huntress's cat's would be licking their lips at this site.....
 
Bonnie and Cylde and friends....
 
Blue jay... Zeus, he can get feisty at times.... He like the dried fruit and berries I put out.
 
The Chicka, dee,dee,dee's,.....
 
 
These two have shown up two weeks ago, and upon research found out their Nut Hatches. They make a very cute sound.
 
On the ground level. the Golden Finches I noticed are getting a more dull coloring now. Soon they will migrate, and the house finch will stay behind.
 
Bouvier was even out...looking for nuts and acorns.
 
Meanwhile back inside, I had me some Buttermilk Bread my Aunt sent me, with my morning coffee and sat back and watched over the animal arena.
 
And let us not even discuss the deer and fox around here. Two fox show up every night late. One night, while on the steps enjoying a cock-a-tale and Cuban, one stopped right in front of me, and we starred at each other for about a couple minutes, only a foot from each other. If they keep this up, I'll have to name them too.

LATE NIGHT...MEAN GAYS

Courtney Act and the girls are back in Courtney's new ditty, a rip on the queens of West Hollywood.

 
Wonder what Cali Boi has to say on this?

FROM THE CANDY SHOP

Think of this as the fall opening of the candy shop! And there is nothing like when you get two treats together that become quite addictive.... like chocolate and peanut butter, or praline and sweet nuts, or coconut and chocolate, but in this case I offer you the special of the day, a two for one if you will. Their handsome brothers, and both two very sexy southern rambunctious men, who both happened to have landed in the modeling world, and both who have a great head of hair. I love to run my hand threw a guys hair........
 
Kalyan Morgan....the chocolate
 
 
 
And then Landon Falgoust ......the peanut butter

Excuse me now.....I'm diving in!!!!!!!

CAPTION IT PART 2

After arriving back to the Casa du Borghese after ALL those vacations, I sent the houseboys on a over due vacation, and they sent me the most lovely moving postcard from their travels.......
 
It's like a gift that keeps giving.

SCENE AROUND WORK

It seems that I am now back into the full swing of things with the job, and have been very busy with fall designer shop installations. This past week was extremely busy with some floor moves, and the start of changing our fashion into early winter clothing and some glitz and shine for the holidays. Next week will bring our holiday kick off meeting in New York. Some photos to come shortly with what I've been working on lately this week. It then occurred to me I have never shared the behind the scenes of the store. Just some of the snaps of sites behind the closed doors....
 
Part of the visual workshop...filled to the brim...
 
box of various chandeliers....
 
 
Some of the various mannequins....
 
 
some men's mannequins.....
 
Here is what the above men mannequins looked like dressed.....
 
Golden opera chairs....
 
not even the tip of the iceberg of the Christmas trim....
 
who doesn't like disco balls......
 
Greek goddess busts.....
 
really big balls...
 
tons of apothecary jars and glass trays.....

 
for stepping out.......
 

 
you'll have to excuse Magada, her hair is out getting did.
 
 
We sure could have a hell of a yard sale one day.
