not sure if you are thinking this, but will the new year bring..?????

when one door closes another opens... that's what I've heard.

It actually crossed my mind that maybe it's time to move on from the blogging world and just close this up. As much as I have enjoyed posting some of my pictures on here and telling my stories, maybe it's time to move on.

Never said I would stay till the end..

I remembered you.....

as a gift today I received the cure cd with three of their concerts in Berlin

I heard one of my all time favorites from The CURE just a bit ago.... I had forgotten this song and when I heard it I can't even explain how it made me feel.... so here you go...



Never quite said what I wanted to say to you
Never quite managed the words to explain to you
Never quite knew how to make them believable
And now the time has gone
Another time undone

Hopelessly fighting the devil
Feeling the monster
Climb deeper inside of me
Feeling him gnawing my heart away hungrily
I'll never lose this pain
Never dream of you again

very strong words, it pulled at my heart and it made me cry not sure if I cried cause it brought back memories or if it made me cry because I remembered how much I loved it.... it's like when you loose something very special and many years later you find it..... just like that ...... just like that....

Felice Navidad

Merry Christmas to you........ saw this on You Tube the other day thought I would share.

One of my favorite bands - Cold Play

Very beautiful and artistic video...

i got this pic of this home a long time ago on one of my flea or antique ventures.... always loved the pine tree and the snow, I thought how pretty.

so it's Christmas Eve my youngest woke me up this morning wishing me the best Christmas ever and that today he would not give me a hard time like the other day when I was off. He said he would be on his best behavior... I love that child to death.
Such a kind heart beautiful I tell you.
I hope he always stays beautiful inside and out, but you know how life can be sometimes.

My eldest is a bit more reserved not as expressive as the youngest. He is more quiet and timid but I love that about him. He will be my rock when he becomes an adult. I can just tell. The youngest will be a dreamer thinking everything is beautiful when sometimes it's really not - kind of like me poor thing I hope he does not follow in my path.

I will be spending this Christmas eve with my parents and my brothers, a few nephews, sometimes a few friends will stop by as my parents have always attracted people that might not have complete families. My parents always take anyone in even if they are not family it doesn't matter who you are, what race you are, or what religion you are.... it's not about the outside it's about the inside I believe.

I can go on and on today, I guess I am on a bit of an emotional roller coaster today, the true angie coming out... the one I like to hide deep inside.... so enough said....

Have a great CHRISTMAS eve today ...... whoever you are.

it's early, I swear I just went to sleep and now it's 6 in the morning.... gotta get ready for work and out the door by 7 a.m.

my brain is still on sleep mode.

gotta whip up an outfit as today I have to deal with customers face to face.

where is all my green.... gotta be in the Holiday spirit and I think the color green will do the trick.

it's getting closer.... you know what I am talking about. CHRISTMAS of course....

I am happy to report, knock on wood, that the sore throat is not longer hurting.... and since it's been snowing lately on my part of the world it will be a
WHITE Christmas....

not sure if you have been naughty or nice, but if you have been naughty it's toooo late to start being nice since Christmas is just around the corner.....

I'm just sayin......

my two boys + bowling = Fun

we ususally never decide to go to a bowling alley.

my youngest has been wanting to go bowling for a while. So yesterday since I was off this is where we decided to go.

I have to say we had a few laughs... it was not busy at 10:00 in the morning which was great.

now off to work......

last year I had already started decorating in November this year I am totally slacking... only a few decorations here and there..

not sure why the Christmas mood did not hit hard this year. Usually this is the time of year that I wait for and this year I have been blah......

Plus, to top it off I had the doc give me the flu shot the other day and I caught the flu bug so for the last 6 days I have been dealing with a sore throat and now chest congestion... thank GOD that I am off today maybe that will help at least a bit.

my two boys are off on break and they want to go bowling so I will pop my cold medicine and hopefully that will get me going. peace to you

Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky

I so will see this movie..... it's something that is up my alley.... love me some foreign movies
this looks very beautiful from the trailer and I can see the passion between them just by the looks they give each other..... You can check out the trailer BUT IT DOES CONTAIN A BIT OF NUDITY.... JUST WARNING YOU before you check it out.

Dedicated to all you love birds or to all of you that love oldies...

To you Luci - may you and your hubby always be happily married and in love. PEACE out...

if you have children then you know what I mean that as MOTHERS we will do anything, just about anything for them to be happy....

not sure if you know what I am saying, but believe me alot of the choices that I make are because of this young man my youngest child and also because of my eldest son.

Unconditional love, their happiness comes first - always.

I love music, love love love love it.....

here are some words from an awesome song by Dirtie Blonde - and it goes like this:

Your a little bit to nice
I look a little bit like hell
cause I am a little overtired Im a little overwhelmed

Your a little bit to late
and it's a little bit to soon
and I'm a little bit to strange for somebody like YOU
it feels a little bit too right so I know it must be wrong
I want to take you home tonight but I am trying to be strong
your just a little bit like me and I'm a little weary
so please don't break my heart

walk over me
walk over me

thank you Jen for the fun time we had at your house on Sunday.....

I had a nice nap and then the whole battling with the wii dancing game was fun...

I want a rematch against you, Amanda and Armand.
I guess I did not know how competitive I really am.

have you seen my new toy?

well here it is.....

so much easier to carry in my purse at all times.

Sunday, December 12, 2010

well I waited for the big snow storm that was going to fall and nothing came just rain...... don't get me wrong I am grateful... snow is lovely to look at from indoors...

Yoli and Kari -

thanks for the fun times last night.
we really have some good laughs.
I swear I almost peed in my pants.

we must continue our southern belle talk we are so getting good at it...

next time the waiters will believe us..

except we will have to somehow disguise our south side accents... fo shur....
I got up way before 7 a.m. and I just got home after a long day at work and then met my cousin in oak brook.

of course had some crazy a-- laughs.... it's always fun to hang out with the girls in my case my cousin and her daughter Karina..

we went to The Cheese Cake Factory and had a few appetizers and then some martinis. I am not a martini drinker give me a nice cold corona anytime, but since I had a martini tonight I guess the lemon drop is my fav. Actually since this is my second one and I ordered the same one the last time I really can't say its a fav but it's good.

so nothing going on this weekend. I heard snow.... and chilly weather..... oh well maybe it will be a stay in weekend with tons of movie watching and of course the usual weekend chores.

time for some tv.... you all have a good night.

old and funky.....

Sunday, December 5, 2010

it's always been in the detail...

I think that is why I am attracted to old things...

it's the beauty of the detail.

Saturday, December 4, 2010

my Christmas decorations are coming out of boxes slowly but surely.

wow if you live in Chicago, and your up this early did you see the snow......

lovely to look at right? I believe so, but I really don't like driving in it..... does snow come with it's own manual -
How to drive in the snow....... cause Angie freaks out a bit.

I hope you all enjoy your day today... I might actually stay home today and create something or decorate something...

we will see.

I took this pic the other day when I was at a church for the baptism I attended.

isn't he beautiful......

I have always been Catholic but NOW not a practicing Catholic, I guess that is what you would call me since I don't attend mass services.

I don't believe I need to go to church to be with GOD and pray. THIS is just my way of thinking....

so yesterday during lunch I went to the local park, sat in my car, took my prayer to ST. Jude and prayed and watched the beautiful sky.... so relaxing....
