So I have a wonderful new hair cut that I love and the Oriel Lace blouse is coming along nicely. I’m hoping to get the front finished this weekend and begin work on the back. I would love to say I will have this done for Italy, but I’m not sure I can pull it off so quickly. But maybe…..

I went ahead and ordered the lovely Born riding boots – but the only color they had in my size was black. So black it is. I wanted dark brown, but if black is all they have. Black is what I’ll get. It helped that I had a 20 dollars off coupon from another purchase I made.

Plans for Italy continue apace. More on that later.
