Rainbow Brite Lydia

Hello there! Today I cleaned the apartment, did laundry, and then Bob and I headed over to his aunt's 60th surprise birthday party, about half an hour away or so. The party was held at an Italian restaurant, in a party room, and there were about twenty five people there. The food was buffet style, and it was good. We were there a few hours, and then ran an errand on the way home, and got back around 6:30. We're just staying in tonight, as we did last night. It's nice to have a quiet weekend, other than going to the party, after being away last week. 
Tomorrow we'll just be staying in, too. 
I can't believe Christmas is just over two months away! I LOVE Christmas, and especially decorating for it with antique Christmas decorations, oh, and wearing my Christmas-y outfits. As much as I get excited for it to come, the one thing I can't stand is that it means colder weather. So, I'm excited for Chrismas, but definitetly not for winter. I also love giving and receiving gifts, of course. This week I've been looking online for items I want for Christmas, so I can send my mom a list soon. She has already asked me for my list, and she always asks by October. 
I also have been wanting to watch "White Christmas" and "It's a Wonderful Life" recently! Those are my two very favorite Christmas movies. I just looked up both on Netflix, and Netflix has "White Christmas"; I know what I'm watching tonight! I do have it on DVD too, but it's in a box somewhere at Bob's dad's house.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my Bernie Dexter Lydia paint palette print dress that I got a couple of years ago. I love a good themed outfit, and I almost always pair this dress with my palette brooch, and with a rainbow Bakelite stack. I feel pretty Rainbow Brite-ish in this outfit. I think this is the only Lydia dress Bernie ever released, and I'm not sure why.  I definitely can't paint, but I sure appreciate the talented people who do!
