It used to have this window. This is a view from inside the tower.
They have wrapped the tower in black paper and chicken wire.
This one is totally modest and comfortable. It doesn't photograph well.
This one is a bit short and there is the whole tank top issue...finding one that works with the dress.
This one is on it's way. My Sis said it's a little Amish. I hope it is retro cool.
The search continues.

The murano glass beads have the look of animal print...Love, Love.
My Ya-ya Sue made this bracelet for me.
I love the chunky beads.
How lucky am I to have talented friends who make one of a kind jewelry for me.
Thank you, thank you.

Jill made me this darling cake.
The buttercream frosting and fudgy chocolate filling are decadent.
Tauna gave me these little beauties.
They are heavenly.

They look great on the models. We'll see how they translate into my real life.
I need a siver dress. There are many shades of silver. This one is technically grey. Ummm, I would never wear those hideous shooties.
