Hallow's Eve Show

Getting ready for the Fetish Ball at the Austin Music Hall tonight. I am doing my champagne bath number tonight with an added spooky touch! I will also be one of the models in the fashion show this evening. Time to touch up my nails, roll my hair, and decide between the pink dress or the black dress!

attending breast cancer burlesque benefit

Looking forward to dinner tonight with an old friend, then it's off to a breast cancer benefit at Opal Divine's. Tonight, it's not me performing, I simply get to luxuriate in a burlesque show put on by some really talented gals. I am excited to wear my white swing dress with orange polka dots belted with a vintage navy piece, camel colored heels, white double stranded pearls, and my Grandmother's leaf broach. 

it piles up now and then

Gardenia is my focus today, scouring the internet for good ad placements, web hosts, creating a fall budget. It's a day for doing typical free lance florist business work. Simply putting myself and my arrangement talents out there! Emails, tea, blogging, petite snacks, etc.

Happy Tuesday darlings

It's an errand running day. Time to buy essential fall/winter wardrobe items, gather Halloween burlesque show necessities, office supplies, book shows, answer phone calls...Looking forward to the moment of pulling the apple roasted pork loin out of the oven tonight. It's a good old fashioned Tuesday!

fresh air

            A cold front rolled in this morning, bringing with it a soft wind and sunny skies. As I am             still mostly puttering around the house waiting to get well, it is so pleasant to throw             open all the windows and let fresh air in. While in limbo, I look forward to dawning             a big comfy sweater, drinking tea from my Grandmother's brown and white china,            curling up with my miniature dachshund, and delving into the fantastic piece of            literature I am currently reading.  
I found this image at Sasha Ezquerra's blog, a really lovely blog.               P.S. I highly recommend reading The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zaf√≥n

How To Make A Fall Flower Arrangement

In addition to being a burlesque performer and jazz singer I am a florist as well. The guest book table arrangement was inspired by Dutch paintings and the elegant transition that happens between summer and fall. Deep purple grapes, gray dusty miller, coral hypericum berries, and ambrosia roses add the elegance of fall while peach stock and white sweetheart roses give a last nod to spring.

Damsel in Distress

I know it's been a week since I lasted posted however I got a concussion last Sunday when out in the country and have been recovering ever since. As a result I have some pretty wretched vertigo and it's caused me to be red ridden. Now, I am finally able to sit in chairs and walk around the house some. I will admit though that I am aching to get out of the house, to go play in the October weather. I think I've got a bit of a damsel-in-distress syndrome.
