Karla’s Korner: Second Chances

Second Chances… I’m sitting here staring at a blank screen with an empty head (there are those who will tell you that happens quite often) and absolutely no idea what to write about this week.  My dog Spankie wanders over and plops down at my feet.  Spankie came to live with us in September 2009 after a brief stay in the state maximum security women’s prison.  So how in the world does a dog end up in prison?  Good question.  Let me explain. In March 2009 I had the opportunity to meet a ...

Fashion Friday: Swimsuit

I love Fashion but I hate paying tons of money to look great. I believe you need two things the knowledge of what looks good on you and the skill to find it for less.

If they are in good condition sell the at a consignment store or a place like Plato's closet, or host a clothing swap. Clothing swaps are a blast! I hit the ...
