About Me? I'm Not Old, I'm Vintage.

Vintage is good.  Vintage is in.  Vintage is a much lovelier word than old.

Since you clickied on the link, allow me to draw you a visual before we begin.

Feather boas and heeled slippers.

Dry martinis, neat.


Cigarette holder.

Perfect nails.

Well behaved child.

Adoring husband.




Summer in the Hamptons.

Now, hold that image.  Got it?

That is NOT me.

That would be graceful and honey, no one has ever called me Grace.

I'm a walking, talking accident waiting to happen.  I sleep too much, don't vacuum enough, usually have dishes in the sink and don't particularly mind a day or two without shaving my legs.  

I wouldn't know what to do with hired help and I've never even seen the Hamptons from a distance, although I hear they're lovely in the summer.

The last time my hair was in an updo was senior prom, and although I manage heels remarkably well, slippers are for scuffing around the house in.  Mine are cows.  Big, obnoxious cows.  They match my pj pants though so it's all good.

I've never owned a feather boa, and if I had one, the cat would eat it.  Nothing sexier than cat saliva when you're trying to get frisky.

So no, I'm none of those elegant, classy things.  I am fairly intelligent, or at least I like to think so.  Hate martinis, can't keep a manicure from chipping to save my life either.  But I do have a great kid and an adoring husband.  So I get props for that.

I'm not even trying for graceful anymore, I'm a warrior now, fighting this aging thing all the way, after all, it's true what they say.

Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but to skid in sideways, totally worn out screaming "Holy shit, what a ride!"


  1. I LOVE THe NEW LOOK AND THE ATTITUDE TO GO WITH IT!!! We have quite a bit in common on the way we think, Im looking forward to more.

  2. Thank you! I figured I needed a more "me" place to go along with my writing place. This one will be more light-hearted I think although the other one is me too, eh, maybe I've got a bit of multiple personality disorder because I love doing them both!

  3. Haha! This is a cool blog. You have a new follower. I'm fighting the aging thing at (almost 34 (more like 29, but who's counting?).

  4. Awesome! The more the merrier! I'm so glad you liked it, hopefully I can keep up the entertainment for ya! I'm new to all the blogging etiquette so just learned yesterday that I should have been popping in telling the people I've followed that I'm following them, so that's my faux pas oopsie! Thanks for reading, and enjoy!

  5. ohh...I like this. Who wants to grow old gracefully anyways? I'm a new follower as well.

    Look forward to reading more.

  9. Well...I was going to join your blog as a follwer, but I don't see a link on your blog. Are my 40-something eyes playing tricks on me or do you not have a link. Oops never mind, it just reappeared. I guess it was computer lag. LOL.

  10. I'm going to tell my teens that I'm not old, just a vintage model! Thanks for the new term... much better than old! Stopping by For the love of Blogs. ~ Ellen
