I hope you are well today! It is another day in October, fall is windy at the moment.
My friend Claudia and I enjoyed our hot latte this morning. I feel like I need more candles at home at this time of the year, even though its warmer and brighter than in Sweden. I remember how hard it was in November, my mother used to say that it is good that my birthday is in November because it is the worst month of the year… I am waking up my children when it is still dark and we have hot cocoa, toasted homemade baguette and candles, it is good start on the day.
I thought that would try my new Prada dress that I found at the rummage sale last weekend, it is a classic straight black dress that I hope to be able to fit in for many more years. I love the color of Salmon in this poncho from H&M, it reminds me of my grandmother in Sweden, I miss her so much! I painted my nails pink, for the month of October – Breast cancer awareness month.
My silver necklace was a gift I received after my years on the SWEA NJ board, it is from Efva Attling. A fantastic designer in Sweden!
Take care of your loved ones and enjoy the weekend!

We had a very busy weekend! Starting off visiting the Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills that had a rummage sale in Bedminster, I heard of the sale and finally able to see it, supposedly a very good sale. The area is one of the most wealthy in the US and I would imagine that people are giving away nice things.
My friend Missy was going to join me with her two year old, when she arrived she panicked. A very long line for parking and the place seemed to be crazy busy. She gave up and when she tried to get out of line, a crash happened behind her… I was on my own, managed to park after about 20 minutes.
White tents with organized items, long lines to all of them. I started with the women’s boutique and was able to enter after about 15 minutes. A nice selection of clothes, the most famous brands were labeled and on a separate rack. You could find, Stella McCartney, Valentino, Versace, Moschino and much more. I found more than I was ready to keep, finally I decided on a Prada dress, Moschino skirt, Elieen Fisher top and a shirt from Lloro Piano (much more affordable than the Sample sale, I paid $10). For my 11 year daughter I got two Vera Bradley bags, $20 each, seemed brand new. I visited the children’s tent and spend $42 on two bags of clothes – JCrew, Vince, Mudd, Aeropostale etc.
The rummage sale happens twice a year, look at the visiting nurses web site – http://www.visitingnurse.org/news-and-events/rummage/
