Not Just Any Waffle...

Too Yummy to Wait

This plate used to hold my first ever Liege Waffle savory sandwich (blackforest ham and smoked gouda cheese) from a new favorite cafe/restaurant, Shaky Alibi.
The red puddle at the top is actually Trappey's Hot Sauce that the gracious owner recommended to try with the waffle, and was he right!
Sweet, salty, smoky, with a touch of spicy sour heat... Perfection.

Until next time... Miss Absinthe

First Redux of 2011!

Haven't had much luck of late at the flea markets and garage sales, so I've been
looking more and more on Etsy where I found these:

Vintage Peacocks Before

I saw a lot of potential with these vintage lovelies (made in Hong Kong!),
and even though I liked the colors that reminded me of Lifesavers fruit flavors
(kept me quiet in church for years), I had a better idea.

Vintage Peacocks After

Now gracing my bathroom wall...
A little gold spray-paint makes a glamourous difference! All for under $30.

Until next time... Miss Absinthe

Cosabella Carnage

Cosabella Carnage

A few weeks ago I left the apt for 20 minutes, only to return and discover my rascally dog Charlie finishing off the crotch to my Cosabella panties, that he dug through and removed from my dirty laundry I naively left out.


This led me to order a few replacement pairs and discover they're discontinuing/retooling the style I wear, the Soire Lowrider Boyleg. I hope I still like them when they change, because nothing else fits me this perfectly.

Until next time... Miss Absinthe
