Hula(ves) ya baby?

Me.  I do.  Dusk.  द्स्क्देवि
...stick with me...I'll be back with an explanation, more pics and a gift... in the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!*  And really, to everyone.  We should all have a gratitude problem.  J


*this is a backdated post, I posted this at 9amAEDST [Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time] Thurs Nov 25th....but I'm sitting here half dressed in my Flamenco skirt and PJs singlet and well.. it's not my best look...but I wanted to post something today... that's my vintage Mambo Goddess hula shirt.  I LOVE this shirt!  So does everyone else.  It's a happy shirt.

Blasted blogger! I've missed two of your posts...argh! Hate it when that happens.
I completely understand how gutted you feel when someone bows out, I start questioning if I've become boring, looked ugly, said something offensive.
Don't worry becuase I love you, you're beautiful, stylish, funny, fabulous and with a heart of gold. xxx
