the fourth

4 07 2009

can something be considered vintage if it’s only 12 years old?  probably not.  more like outdated.  out of style.  i don’t care.  i love ’em and i can’t part with ’em and i break ’em out once or twice a year.  the “vintage” dr. scholl flag shoes:





and my independence day attempt at decor: 


nothing quite trumps those shoes, though. 

dinner and drinks at a friend’s house last evening – drinks were supposed to be on the deck, but alas, you guessed it – rain.  rain rain rain.  it cleared up for a minute and i got this shot:DSCF0767

i didn’t get a picture of the celebratory cocktail, but i highly recommend –  the strawberry muddle.  easy and refreshing.  because you need refreshing in these rainy, chilly temps. 

happy 4th of july!  i’m one of the lucky ones who gets to work this holiday.  and yes, the sun is SHINING.  think of me fondly while you’re picnicking and potato salading and lobstering and i’m locked in a dark room with no windows massaging my brains out.
