Farewell to Frosty

Two more sleeps!

On March 20th Spring will be arriving. We’ve had a few milder days which have certainly lifted my spirit and hopes that Spring is around the corner.

This designer cardigan is several years old, with unique features. I bought it at a hospital gift shop (of all places) while visiting someone. Earth-tones are still one of my favourites.

Arm candy is new from La Creme and I love adding several at a time for a fun arm party.

I bought my faux suede boots in California in 2006 when my daughter Jean got married on Long Beach. They are still lovely and in style almost 10 years later.

I’m packing away my snowmen …

Farewell and I can honestly say,

I won’t miss you!!!

love and blessings

    I’m convinced that you can wear every colour. Certainly, you would only purchase a colour you could wear fashionably. Has no one ever given you a colour you can’t wear???!!!

    I love your eye candy…..oops…I mean arm candy….hahaha……
    The cardigan is certainly elegant.
    I presume it is the snowmens’ “Best friends who are flakes”.
    (I’ll see you at dance class.)

  2. I just mentioned to a buddy of mine yesterday after seeing his Instagram photo, that I don’t own a cardigan. LoL. Yet here I am reading an article of yours, displaying a cardigan. Is God giving me yet a second sign, in less than two days, for me to finally buy a cardigan?

    Well, I’m sure that spring came to my life, the proof being…my ‘melting’ nose…:) Because of that I couldn’t go to my dance class today, and I miss it very much!

    See you next class, dear Carmen.
    Good bye from me to your cute snowmen 🙂

    Happy Spring! When Spring hits your part of the world, this means my part of the world is heading fast into Summer that last about 7 months if not longer. We will be like the bears hibernating in our full blast air conditioned houses.. sad but true. Enjoy the good season and stay fabulous!

      Thank you my dear! And here I was envying you to live in a warm country. I have been in climates like that where you would die on a desert without air-conditioning!

      Keep cool,

      ❤ carmen

      So happy for you Melinda! It’s still very cold this weekend with freezing temperatures, but snow has been melting on milder days. It sure doesn’t feel like Spring today.

    Hi Carmen, cute sweater! It’s fun to find surprises at hospital gift shops. I often visit the one across the street from where I work just to check out what’s new.
    I read your daughter’s anniversary post. How great! They both look beautiful. I wonder if I’ll run in to them on the streets of down town some day. 😉

      Thank you Joni! I’ve found a number of pretty things (not just clothes) at hospital gift shops that I’ve never seen anywhere else. Thanks for checking out Jean’s wedding post.
