Sweater Weather!

I have gone a little crazy with red sweaters! Black is suddenly being overtaken by red in my closet.




Do you go through stages of being drawn to a certain color when you go shopping? I love shades of red because it goes with every pair of pants in my wardrobe.




At the end of the season last year I bought this sweater from Chico's. I am glad I did because I love the length of it with these Fabrizio Gianni leggings.




The bag is by Zac Posen via Saks Off 5th. The shoes are by Vince Camuto via Dillard's.


Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

Mr. Mickey's Place

Some of you asked for a peek into Mr. Mickey's new home.

Last evening we attended our neighborhood pot luck Christmas dinner held at our clubhouse, so we snapped a few pictures in his foyer before leaving.



The sculptures on the wall behind me are by J. Cotter.


Not many bachelor pads have a crystal chandelier. This one has hung in several of Mr. Mickey's dining rooms over the years.


There are so many pieces of special art, he has not yet found a place for many of them but he is still working on it. The bust behind me to the left is a sculpture of Mickey done many years ago. The artist now lives at the end of the block. Small world indeed!

It was 75 degrees here last evening so I was actually sorry I wore the sweater. The necklace, sweater and tank are from Chico's last year. The gray slacks are from Stein Mart last year. The Vince Camuto flats are from Nordstrom.

Eight years ago Mr. Mickey and I met at a neighborhood Christmas party in our old neighborhood. It was the party that changed my life.

For that first party I took bacon wrapped chestnuts which I almost burned. I had second thoughts about even going to the party after that! For this party I took something much more simple, southern cornbread and roasted Brussels sprouts. Mr. Mickey made his world famous deviled eggs of which none were left. 


Thank you so much for reading my blog. 
I hope all your dinner parties are wonderful!

It's Greek to Me!

The town of Weaverville, North Carolina is just a short pleasant drive across the mountains from Johnson City.

 
 
Mr. Mickey and I especially enjoy the Stoney Knob Cafe, one of several really good restaurants there. They offer a menu of American, Greek and European cuisine.
 


They serve the most awesome focaccia bread and olive oil dip before dinner. Supreme olive oil is poured over fresh herbs, sun-dried tomatoes and feta. We could make a meal from just that and a glass of wine. It really is over the top good!



I haven't worn these Vince Camuto shoes very much this year so I wanted to style an outfit around them for our Saturday date night before summer slips away from us.


 
Weaverville is a surprising little town with sidewalk cafes, art galleries, gift shops, excellent pottery galleries and the Well-Bred Bakery & Cafe where we stopped in to pick up a fresh baked loaf of wheat bread.



  We have already picked out the next restaurant we will visit in Weaverville. We have heard really good things about The Glass Onion and their menu looked really interesting.



Voted one of the top 200 Salons in America, Aabani Salon is also located here in Weaverville.




There was still plenty of time after our meal to take the ten minute drive into downtown Asheville. We had an after dinner Scotch and water at a side walk cafe where we sat for more than an hour watching all the people passing by. We also really enjoyed visiting with two lovely women sitting at the table next to us. We make new friends wherever we go!



The light weight jacket and matching tank are both from Chico's. The side zip ankle pants are from Talbots. The clutch and Oscar de la Renta sunglasses are from Stein Mart. The awesome coral cuff was a gift from my sweet friend Lois.

Thank you for reading! I hope your day is going well.
