I was encouraged to explain more about my SHOPPING LINKS page and how to use it.  (In fact I just added a few new brands to the list)

I am an affiliate for many different brands and when you click on those brands and shop, then I receive a small commission.

This is such an important income for me and my family.

I have tried to include the brands most shopped by this audience, but sometimes I miss one of your favorites.

If you will tell me what you are shopping, then I can tell you if I am affiliate for them and give you that link…if it is not already on the page.

And remember to send your holiday recipes and decorations with pictures to  Send to email and do not try to put in comments! YOU are the best

  1. FANTASTIC!! I thought maybe the gentleman in the first story just passed out snacks, but as I read further, what a joy to know he was invited to flight attendant school as well. This was a very uplifting story, and I feel so happy for him!

  2. I absolutely love your Wednesday posts. So much information and entraining ideas in one spot! I love it! Please continue!

  3. Thanks Rhoda…I am making plans for next year, so I will make note of your comment! So glad you enjoy it.

  4. Great selection of articles — thank you. The video of Italian street fashion was so much fun! I would stick out like a sore thumb there…

  5. I had a pair of silver shoes in college. I wore them with a little black dress and silver pantyhose. Now I have gold sneakers and mary janes. Love metallic shoes. The Milan video was interesting. Such a variety of coats & outfits. Did you notice that the women not wearing stiletto heels were mostly wearing big army type boots? Thanks for some fun reads.

  6. Love this roundup and sent a link to fashionable daughters of the Italian street fashion. I was amazed at the men and how wonderful most of them looked. Thank you!

  7. I have a pair of Vionic silver “snake” flats and a pair of Vionic “leopard” flats that I’ve had for the last six years and wear them with everything! I feel extra special whenever I wear either pair and they go with just about everything and can make an outfit “pop.”

  8. Enjoyed many of the links provided Pamela as have been browsing them a good part of the day off ‘n on during my breaks of Christmas wrapping. (That is with a ‘W’ with definitely no break-dancing either ….. ☺.) As to the Milan Street Style videos, I do follow them and dare I say enjoy them over and above the Parisian ones for their sense of style and ….. they do love their dogs.
    P.S: Though not shopping like I once did for the Grand Children as give them money now; Santa still leaves Christmas stockings at our house for them and all gifts therein are still individually wrapped in keeping with the tradition.
