New toy to play with from Santa

I received an XBox 360 Kinect for Christmas! I also received a Zumba DVD to go with it. Have you ever taken a Zumba class? It’s a salsa type dancing that you do in a class or even by yourself, especially if you’re at home in front of the XBox! It has  great latin music that gets you moving! I am hopeful that it will inspire me to actually want to exercise. I do love to dance! Maybe I won’t even notice that I am also getting in shape! My goal is to lose ten pounds by the end of Feb., as my darling husband and I are going on a cruise with friends!

In vintage news, I have continued to list all kinds of goodies throughout the holidays. If you’ve been too busy to be at your computer, check out some of the new fashions I am selling in my Etsy store…….


Vera Scarves – Great for Fall!

The Vera scarf – so divine! The colors and designs are fantastic. Here are a couple that are available in my Etsy store. More to come!

A little info. about Vera –


(1907 – 1993)  Vera Neumann, primarily a scarf designer, was a wonderful colorist with great graphic style. She signed her textiles Vera. Her fabrics are also seen in blouses and dresses from the 1960s and 1970s, using silk as well as cotton. Vera also designed textiles for the home, such as napkins and tablecloths. The Vera label is seen starting about 1947.
