We don't have cable.  We don't even have a regular antenna for the TV.  DH made a TV antenna using wire hangers from the dry cleaners.  He bolted them on a piece of wood and it's standing up on our window sill and at times when we don't get signal one of us has to get up and fidget with it to get a clear picture.  I mean we used to have cable but found ourselves with plenty of channels but nothing worth watching so we decided to cancel it. 

We don't get ABC and there are shows on there I would like to watch such as Modern Family but to be honest everything is available on Netflix nowadays that I don't really mind just having four sometimes three channels.  We are caught up with Breaking Bad, Dexter and Weeds so I'm good.  I watched all the Mad Men episodes on my phone or iPad so I'm caught up with those and a friend of ours said he'll upload the new episodes for me to watch so I don't have to wait a year to find out what's going on with Don Draper.  Do you guys watch Mad Men?

Anyway, I was waiting for DH in the car  yesterday and stumbled across Hoarders on Netflix and now I can't seem to stop watching it.  Have you seen Hoarders?  Any thoughts?  I am a little freaked out, saddened and horrified at the same time.  I was so moved that I am starting my Spring cleaning today.  

Hope you're having a fine Monday!    


  1. I adore your vintage necklace! What a find! I don't have TV at all, because shows are available on or Youtube. I have watched Hoarders before, and sometimes I am a little afraid that they might come film me in my house. I hoard things from my childhood days!

  2. I will follow your blog...

    New post on my blog...


  3. I love your version of Kerry's outfit - this is such a great idea!

    1. It's really fun Erin. You should join some times.

  4. Love your interpretation of the look! Matching your lipstick to the booties was genius. I couldn't live without cable...I am such a TV junkie. And yes, I've seen Hoarders. It's like a know you shouldn't watch but at the same time you can't look away.

    1. That's exactly how I feel Sharon. It's like all the reality shows really, I can't look away.

  5. You definitely pulled off the inspiration look, I love that black dress and the pop of red in your lips is perfect!

  6. I love the inspiration look you created! So...I own 6 DVF wrap dresses! I have been debating on if I should do a post inside my closet revealing some of my very best items that have not yet been worn on Bravoe. All of my wrap dresses have never been altered and I always prefer to wear them with heels! I can't wait to see your wrap dresses!

  7. you look really fab !i love it!!!

  8. wow your necklace is the bomb!!! love, LOVE it!

  9. I think your version looks better. OMG I can't watch hoarders I get glued to it, so sad but horribly mesmerizing. Love the lipstick.


I would love to hear from you. Positive and constructive criticism is always welcome.
