A New Favorite Blog… “A Femme d’Un Certain Age” March 27, 2012
Today, while at The Enchanted Home, who was my wonderful guest host today, my eyes came across an interesting sounding blog on Tina’s blog roll. First of all, it was about “older” women and secondly, because it was French!
The blog, is the work of Tish Jett. ( Don’t you even just love her name?) she writes about staying gorgeous, healthy, well dressed, well traveled…and that’s as far as I’ve gotten!
Her story is one I’ve imagined in a fairy tale. She has worked as a life/style writer and editor and “moved to France for a job and stayed for love”!
She wrote recently about choosing bright colors for spring, like the Patagonia sweater and Boden belt above! So, being the cheap skate that I am, I dropped by Target this afternoon and got this option…. Two tops and a tangerine cardigan, all for about $36! I’ll splurge on a purse and other little doo-dads, but as a rule, I’d rather buy a pair of alabaster sconces or an old farm table, or a trip to Europe, than designer duds. Somehow it all works out!
Speaking of life-on-the-cheap, If you’re like me and love fresh flowers on your bed table, scamper on over to Home Depot, for a 3″ (pot) orchid, for $8.88! Bring that baby home, stick it in a pretty bowl, like Tina’s porcelain , add some moss and you’re in business!
Well, that’s all the brilliance I have to share with you today. Be sure to have a wonderful, French-y kind of day!
