Christmas Tree Chinese Lantern!

Last December, when I was celebrating my annual Christmas in California extravaganza, I spent a few days in San Diego visiting friends. While there, I had the opportunity to make merry at one of those oversize-Chinese Lantern Festival exhibits that pop up in stadium parking lots around the country at this time of year, and it was just amazing! If you live in the NY Tri-State area, you can visit the one they are having on Staten Island, and there is even a Groupon Deal for reduced-price admission! Score: a Direct Hit!

Why not do a little Googling and find out if there one going on where you live? It will be worth it!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Lotus Flower Beaded Purse

While I was out west in California for the Christmas holidays, I spent a few days in San Deigo, where I visited the historic Hotel Del Coronado, a luxury resort property that’s right on the beach. The Hotel Del, as it is known, has an amazing and colorful history that goes back to the late 1880s and it is arguably San Diego’s most famous landmark building. It was also once known as Hollywood’s Playground, so it is not much og a surprise that their gift shop sells all kinds of fancy stuff like this simply breathtaking Pink Lotus Blossom Handbag by Mary Frances handbags, which I would wish to own.

This special little bag can be purchased in the Hotel Del Coronado gift shop, online from Mary Frances handbags, or from Amazon for $298.00 (worth it).

Does anyone know what kind of car this is? My friend Sue took the above photo of it while she was idling at an intersection somewhere in suburban San Diego. I put it into a Google Image Search but could not find any car that looked even remotely like it. It is pretty cool, don’t you think? To me, this tiny red, pod-shaped car looks a little bit like a fancy shoe! I bet it gets excellent mileage!

All that is known about Darth Vader Princess is that she was photographed at Comic Con in San Diego this past July. No further information is available about Darth Vader Princess.
