Day Of Giving

As promised, here are a few of the pictures from the Santa Project.



In the autumn of each year, Mr. Mickey starts letting his beard grow out for a project that is very important to all those who are involved.




A special group of friends contribute the funds for this project benefiting more than fifty children who might not otherwise have much of a Christmas. They are given a coat, shoes, school clothes and a toy by the "real" Santa.








When I showed you pictures of my closet in the past, some of you asked why I had so many red jackets. You can see now that December is the reason I buy red jackets so often. With more than twenty events to attend in one festive month I need even more red jackets and toppers.





During the early part of this twelve hour day I wore a black long sleeve tee and black jeggings with a red boiled wool vest, all from Chico's. The bag is from Express. The boots are by Vince Camuto from Nordstrom.






In the evening I removed the necklace and animal print belt and smaller earrings and replaced them with longer earrings and a low slung belt from Chico's. I also added a tartan ruana from Foxcroft and black fur trimmed leather gloves. 






Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me for some of our many holiday events!
