Working ‘the Back’ – lingerie with Vikki Dougan

Vikki Dougan: Did she inspire the drawing of Jessica Rabbit?

Maybe….or maybe not…
Her back and lingerie might just inspire a Presentation Outfit:

dievca might just have to pull out the Agent Provocateur ‘Baroness” silk slip in Navy.


“No man is a failure who has friends.”

dievca is worried about this happening at Christmas dinner:

But she has fantastic friends, so dinner should be more elegant:
It doesn’t matter as long as everyone feels welcome and enjoys themselves.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
from dievca’s home to yours

Something of Use from 30 years ago~

As dievca is pulling items out for a Christmas Dinner with friends, she realized that this
Crate & Barrel serving platter has been in her life for about 30 years. It’s a piece that has a lot of mileage on it and still looks lovely.  The bonus is that the removable dip container can be refilled without moving the whole server and it cleans up easily.

Do you use or need something similar?

dievca was curious if Crate & Barrel still offered this item — No.

she saw it on resale sites (apparently others did not find it as useful or broke the dip holder…)

The closest items she found on the Crate & Barrel website and in stores are:

Crate & Barrel Classic White Chip and Dip Server (click on photo to purchase)

Dip piece is attached….no ease of refilling. Dishwasher safe, though.

Crate & Barrel Tondo wood chip and dip server (click photo to purchase)

Close, but that dip bowl will move around as people use it.

Crate & Barrel Two-piece glass chip and dip server (click photo to purchase)

Lovely – but glass?  dievca would break something within the next 30 years.

So, it looks like dievca will stay with her old favorite! 😉


A complete blur…


dievca’s washed a lot of sheets and items of clothing these past few days.
All towards getting a sleeping schedule and meds correct. It’s still not down solid.
The all-encompassing Family challenges have taken their toll.

Normally dievca tries to start out the week with a bit of coffee happiness – on Mondays.
Apparently, her coffee post went out on a Sunday.

That doesn’t really matter in the big picture until dievca flies out on an early flight and needs to figure out which day of the week it was for work. she was thinking the Coffee post went out on a Monday – when it didn’t… then she panicked about which day it was~

It took brain dead dievca thirty minutes to figure out the correct day of the week.

An “Anatomic Bomb” in Lingerie

“If I do demoralize an audience, as some people say, then I’m glad I do it.  People need a loosening up.  Most of the people in this country are hypocritical, too many put on a front of being shocked at certain kinds of behavior.  It’s a joke to think I could demoralize anyone with this little act.  If one has morals, then they can’t be taken away by me or anyone else.” ~ Lili St. Cyr
