Release the Louis Vuitton...

I'll spare you the photos of Louis Vuitton condoms and shot gun , but hot on the market is this not so authentic waffle maker for the LV lovers.   
 (Soon to be pulled once paperwork goes through. I'm not sure how they can even publicly sell it in the first place.)
Steer clear of "master perfumer" Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud for he is on a mission.
Confirming all the buzz, Louis Vuitton is going to release a new fragrance crafted by him. 
This fragrance is the first since the 1920's and 30's, so the pressure is on. I'm sure all 461 Louis Vuitton boutiques (only sold there) will have them sold before they arrive.  

All hands idol or eager must wait for the official date to be announced before purchasing the scent.  
Dare I say that I'm equally as interested in the bottle as I am the fragrance.

What scent do you currently wear? Are you interested or curious about the new scent?
Does the look of the bottle have an influence on your buying decision?

Untitled (Laundry On A Clothesline) - Josef Albers, 1929

Fresh fabric dancing in the soft breeze.  It's an old practice with new value.

Do you ever hang your clothes to dry?

On the Bright Side...

I know.... I was M.I.A. again. I blame it on the lake.  
This is our first summer living relatively close to family and friends in 8 years. 
 The 2 hour drive it takes to get here (for almost everyone who visits)doesn't compare to the 14 or 36 hours
 it took to in the the past. While we are busy entertaining...hanging out...catching up...we are also in the
 process of planing our next move.  It looks like we are going West again. 

It's threatening to rain today. On the bright side,  I have all I need right here in this little cottage.

I hope you have a "bright" day...rain or shine.

Anchors Aweigh!

Last Saturday I spent the entire day in a classroom with Deputy Spencer taking a boaters class. 
While it isn't a requirement, I thought I should learn the rules of the water for the sake of safety.
 My new Boating Safety Certificate looks pretty good on the fridge. 

Just for fun..here are a few questions to answer:

Swimming- Lake or Ocean
(My answer- Lake)
Boat- Sail boat or Motor Boat
(Motor Boat)
Tattoo- Anchor or Nautical Star
Clothing- Blue and White stripes or All White
(Don't make me pick...I love them both)
Drink- Pina Colada or Margarita  
(Pina colada)

I hope you can float away, if for just a moment, to somewhere beautiful today.
Happy Sailing!

Can you feel the warmth of this photo?
The sun has a way of making each day special.

I know the weather has been hot even unbearable in some areas, but considering the alternative
 I'll take the sunshine, the warmth and bask in it.  

Did you have a nice weekend?
