Good Afternoon. Yes, we’re starting off the afternoon talking about vodka.

Tis The Season, after all…

Ever since  these bottles jumped out at me in a European magazine last year, I’ve had my eye out for them.

Try to convince me packaging isn’t everything

890A5264‘Unique Edition’ Absolut vodka $27.95 and Christmas decorations from Target

A twist on the candle or a bottle of wine as a hostess gift,  they’re fun at your cocktails station, especially this time of year.

You do have a cocktail station don’t you?!

 Naturally I had to get my little fluorescent shot beaker from Paris into the pic.  (filled with chartreuse, not vodka) Unfortunately the contents is looking decidedly more yellow than fluoro-green in these photos.

I cannot tell a lie. This was originally going to be two posts; one on fluorescents and one on opalescents but just LOOK at the time- It’s the 20th already!

1mb9I’m liking this artist Matthew Brandt

“‘taste tests in color’ in which the artist silk screened picturesque american landscapes
by using a food item in place of traditional ink such as ketchup or mole sauce. in this particular ‘taste test’, the artist recreates the image of vernal falls of
yosemite national park into several multi-layered prints made permanent by food or household objects such as toothpaste, kool-aid, airhead candies,
or pharmecutical pills”

I’m presuming the silk screened are sprayed with some sort of preservative.

tumblr_m2gsm038Z91qax0bvo1_1280I know pink hair is getting old and so am I, but I’d like some. I really would.

20120903-063019I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Serendipity (I think…I couldn’t really read that word. It might say ‘sensuality’ but I prefer serendipity) … I am vivid colours.  etc.

I am tired of reading the tiny print.

record it all on this extremely desirable Leica X2 designed by Sir Paul Smith.



I still have lots to share in the next few days so I very well might be doubling down again.

Peace Out for now




  1. Slim,
    You’re too young to remember but been there done that with florescent anything. I can remember sending our oldest son off to school in fluorescent shorts, he loved them as that was the color of the month.. LOL.
    The infused vodka’s could be a problem, I’m currently hooked on pear with club soda!

  2. Fun! Fun! Fun! So great to see this blast of colors as the first day of winter is upon us tomorrow. And I am with you about having some pink hair. Covering up my “old” hairs with brown is getting dull, but my two twenty year old daughters might think I have gone off my rocker!
    As always, thanks for your wonderful posts.

  3. Those shoes!The vodka! The earrings!! You do it to me every time, just need to colour my hair pink.
    Have the happiest of Christmases Slim. Your posts brighten my day.

  4. From one right brained slightly sloppy Virgo to another, The Merriest of Christmases to you and yours and enjoy everything and anything fluorescent that appears before you.

  5. In this season of gray and white this is a very refreshing post!!! Love every pic and of course your insightful comments!!! Wish I could drink (I take blood thinners so alcohol is a no no for me…boo hoo) but I can live vicariously through you!!!! Merry Merry!!

  6. Slim, there are some who can’t believe I am a Virgo either! That looks like my brain’s right side. As an artist I love color and love all of these very cool images!

    Love & Hugs,
    Art by Karena

  7. Ooooh, so festive, bright and happy! Thanks for a huge burst of color just before the shortest, darkest day
    of the year. Your postings are oh so addictive and you spoiled us last year when you posted every
    day up to Christmas. More Slim Paley creative energy and light, please, please! 🙂

  8. My eyes! My eyes! Such a merry and BRIGHT post! I LOVE how you decorated the vodka! Is it too late to add that iPad case to my list?!

  9. Impossible to look at this post and not smile at some part of it. Impossible. I do believe that is a SP speciality. Although personally, I did my fluo time in the 80s–Stephen Sprouse, natch. I am still kicking myself for not buying one of the fluo leather jackets when they were on sale for $120, what was I thinking? Anywho, karma to youuuu for spreading joy. One more please before Noel? 🙂

  10. Okay, so I have a confession to make of a guilty pleasure. Your Absolut vodka photos brought it to mind. I went to a Thanksgiving party at a very swell house in Greenwich this year where one of the guests, a fashion designer whose frocks I am sure you own several of, brought a bottle of Marshmallow flavored Stolichnaya vodka with her. When I arrived she was doling out shots of it on ice. I could not believe what I tasted — it really does taste like marshmallows toasted over a campfire! We all agreed that it was the “Ultimate Chic Drink” and happily asked for more. Try it, I am serious! Reggie

  11. I love these great colours!
    Packaging may not be everything, but it works for me most of the time. Absolut and Tarjay…perfect combo. And no, I do not have a cocktail station! What have I been thinking??! New Years resolution #1, create a cocktail station and stock it well.
    You can have pink hair without the commitment. I used “Color Bug” by Kevin Murphy. Swipe it on, shot of hairspray to hold it and washes right out. Cool Baby.

  12. Yes! Late to the party and what a wonderful one it is! LOVE the right brain splash, as I, too, represent that! And the constant presence of the messiest desk, omnipresent chaos of space and materials that leads to my creative genius (!) surprises even me…and I thought it was just a Sagittarius thing…I love that I am in your company in this!
    Happiness, health, colorful, chaotic clutter and divine design inspiration are what I wish for you in the coming year! Thank you for all you give!
    xoxo, Chris

  13. Hi Linda,
    if I haven’t listed a credit or one doesn’t come up under the cursor when you run it over the image, then I don’t have one. I always try to credit when I can but most uncredited photos are from Tumblr or Pinterest or Google Search.

Would love to hear from you!
