Something Out Of The Ordinary

Something Out Of The Ordinary on vickiarcher.com

Let’s add something out of the ordinary to our mix.

Drab and not making the effort this year won’t cut it, even if we are performing for us and not others. I have never been more in need of colour than right about now. I managed to find Christmas flowers – at least fingers crossed I hope so – and I couldn’t look past red, every vibrant shade of. If we have to munch alone we will at least be surrounded by colour.

I found a dress and I am looking forward to wearing it on the 25th – I’ll be laying on the red lips too – to match the flowers.

And what about our feet? I was thinking a little “out of the ordinary” is needed. Some brocade, a little glitter or a fancy detail – a buckle here and a bow there. It’s now or never. Don’t you think?

I’m going to feel this Christmas spirit right down to my toes. What about a heel? Maybe they should come out to play?

What did you decide to wear? Here’s some out of the ordinary foot folly. xv

Hello Vicki! I will click and peruse and get some ideas! I know I’ll be sporting my red lips on Christmas; not sure what I’ll wear but it will have some SPARKLE!


It was cool enough to wear my bright red ZARA wool coat (from a few years back) to deliver gifts to front porches this week. A long drive to another town to drop off two little boys’ wrapped up trucks and helicopters – our cute as can be great grandsons – and then local drop offs around town, mostly bottles of wine, home baked cookies, and useful gift cards. Several chats from a distance with promises to catch up in the new year hopefully!

Somehow a black cashmere turtleneck and black joggers take on a whole new cheery feeling with a red coat thrown over! No red lipstick under the mask though – but once home again and unmasked I paint my lips! Here’s a lovely lip treatment you might enjoy – TATCHA’s “The Kissu Lip Mask” – a lovely little pink pot with a golden spatula – I use it every night at bedtime and again during the day – it’s fabulous! I’ve tucked some in grownup granddaughters’ gift bags too.

Happy Christmas to you and David dear Vicki – it will be different for all of us, however the true reason will never change and we can still celebrate alone and enjoy. May 2021 brings good changes. . . . . . and much missed travel! We’ve reservations for the UK in May/June – I need to come home so badly – this year is the first I’ve missed a visit in 50+ years!
Hugs – Mary x


Vicki dear, hope all is OK with you and family. Have missed you here but hope you’re just taking a long holiday break.
Hugs for the New Year – stay safe and healthy.
Mary x
