Self-Expression: Leather + Lace

Self-expression is akin to self-celebration.  The nice thing is it manifests itself in various forms including what we say, do, create, enjoy, love, and, of course, how we dress.

I adore pairing items that, basically, feel like they don't belong together--like leather and lace.  Truly, I think it's an expression of who I am.

Yup, call me a walking juxtaposition! I love all things pink, girly, and Zen; yet, Halloween is my favorite holiday.  It's simply who I am.

I close, today, with a sweet pic Mark captured the other evening.  We laughed that Tabitha, our lovely adopted shelter kitty, was preparing, early, for the arrival of Trick-or-Treaters (which takes place tonight, here).

Joy, peace and Happy Halloween! T.
