The Accidental Optimist

Loved Ones,

I REALLY thought I'd have time and energy to share some thoughts on how everyone else should dress more appropriately. Home again in time for a winter weather warning. Climbing into jammies, cuddling up with a friend and some ice cream and watching something fun from the pile up in my DVR.


Happy Pink Saturday and I will be back soon to tell you to how to dress for success, or at least for your age... yes I do wear pink fluffy footie jammies with a bunny on them when its cold outside. No, I do NOT see the irony of lecturing others on dressing appropriately for their age while dressing as I darn well please. 
Can't wait to go out blog reading again this weekend and catching up with all of you. Not only was the Internet connection lousy all week, there was no time for thrifting but I did get one gem along the way:

I am too tired to even say anything snarky about how happy I am to have this and you don't --- or if you do then to say something about how lucky you are to be so Helen like. Yawn. Night night!

  1. Dear Ms. Hartman, I think your pink bunny jammies are cute and perfect attire for a cold weather day. Your cuddly friend is cute, also. As for your acquisition, I think I can safely say I do not have one. Have a terrific weekend and please stay warm.--------- Shannon

  6. Anyone who loves sock monkeys is a friend of mine. There's one in the toybox in my back bedroom who clearly needs the name of your seamstress.

    Oh my pink bunny footie pajamas to stay warm and a
    sock money to snuggle. Does life get any better than
    that? NOPE.

    You look adorable, and I am so happy that you have your

    Love your find as well. Aren't you the lucky little
    ducky? Love the dish sweetie.
