There are no words to describe just how amazing this post is...

Rebekka said...

Fantastic!

jenX said...

omg. you're gorgeous. that room looks painfully familiar.

mrsdarwin said...

Ou sont les perles et les talons hauts?

Betty Duffy said...

Les talons hauts sont dans le réduit, mais oui. Ma fille casse mes perles. Cela me rend triste.

mrsdarwin said...

Oh, tant pis! C'est le destin de tout ma bijoux. Nous justemente ne pouvons pas avoir des choses bien.

Darwin said...

Very classy with the still-somewhat-anonymous head-turned photo.

Every female blogger on this thread right now wants to be you. (Doesn't have the same ring, does it...)

Melanie B said...

Bonsoir, etranger noir, allons dancer.

J'aime la robe rose!

Les perles... c'est dommage.

Betty Duffy said...

May not have the same ring, Darwin, but probably more accurate because I have a new Oreck.

A wise philosopher once said that it's not your Oreck, it's what you do with it.

Sally Thomas said...

Oui, j'aime aussi la robe rose.

Et l'etranger. Chez moi, il y a un etranger bleu. Ce n'est pas le meme chose, pas du tout. Il ne danse pas.

Le mot du jour de securite: dogra. C'est moi, je pense, et mon etranger court et bleu . . .

Sally Thomas said...

Tr: My stranger short and blue of Sears, he makes not the boogie comme l'Oreck.

Utilisez le mot "cabilist" (le mot de securite maintenent) cinq fois en conversation.

1. Je ne suis pas cabiliste.
2. Je ne connais pas un cabilist.
3. Qu'est-ce que c'est un cabilist?
4.?
5.?

Oh, this post made me laugh!

Chez moi, l'étranger est jaune et gris, et je l'adore. Les pois sur le plancher, et les feuille tombées, il les mange comme les bon-bons.

(Pardon any fractures in the French, please; it's been a long time.)

Pentimento said...

Sally, this time I thought you were quoting Apollinaire.

Betty, the dress rocks. Or, more accurately, you rock it.

Betty Duffy said...

Many thanks for the kind words. The only thing more exciting than ball gowns seems to be vaccuum cleaners.

Anon, you may tell your wise philosopher that I prefer to think not what I should do with my Oreck, but rather, what should my Oreck do for me. With such lengthy attachments, the Oreck can reach places where no man has been before, like my ceiling fan.

Your drudgery is divine.

"A servant with this clause
Makes drudgery divine,
Who sweeps a room as for Thy laws
Makes that, and the action, fine."

TheSeeker said...

Gorgeous! And what a fun post--very you. I love it :-)

mrsdarwin said...

I hope you will take it as a compliment when I say that I keep coming back to this post, not to look at the lovely dress or the gloves, but the leather arm chair. It makes the photos.

Betty Duffy said...

Oh... the chair...
My husband's chair, purchased when he gave up tobacco early in our marriage. We calculated how much he spent a year on Skoal, an astronomical amount, because he chewed perpetually, even while asleep occasionally, then put the amount towards his special place to sit. I love leather when it ages. And it washes up easily and won't tear. Our first couch was in tatters within a couple years--kids walked all over the back cusions, and it smelled like pee. Replaced it last year with leather-hurrah.
