Sometimes on my vacations an unplanned mascot emerges. Such was the case with 'Peggy Sue,' a blow up Penguin purchased at a dollar store in Beijing, who tagged along on our recent trip to the Philippines. I love the first picture of 'flat laura' created by my friend's niece and mailed to my friend in Beijing to take along with her during a trek through Nepal.

My friend taught me a great trick to keep ballet flats and other potential potent shoes odor free even after a long hot summer...put them in the freezer! Apparently most odor causing bacteria are killed off by the low temp. Here's a full tutorial.

Ok, I'm a bad blogger. I left for vacation which included Easter, Passover and a wedding, 3 states in ten days not to mention a 14hr flight there and back and just didn't do any blogging. Anyway on NPR today, I came across this image of Queen Rania. I don't want to get into the Israel debate here, but in a style/fashion sense, she really puts the glamor back in royalty.

I first saw these dramatic beauts at city sage and followed the link to artist Kari Herer. These would be perfect hung in a set of three over a bed, so much so that I was finally motivated to sign up with etsy and paypal to complete the purchase. Hopefully the hubby agrees, otherwise they will be gifted to lucky friends and family:)
