If I had a million dollars
Well, I’d buy you a green dress
If I had a million dollars
Well, I’d buy you some art
(A Picasso or a Garfunkel)
If I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
I’d be rich

So I read yesterday Leona Helmsley left $12 million dollars to her beloved pooch, Trouble. It got me thinking, not only did I want to be her dog…but what would I do if someone left me $12 million? One can dream right?

It’s sad by today’s standards one million or even $12 million doesn’t really set one for life, but it sure sets one for some fun! OK, if I had Trouble’s new fortune I would first put $11.5 in the bank/investments, but I would go on a bit of a shopping spree. It’s fall and momma needs some new clothes!

    How fun to dream… And you were actually very practical with some of your selections! Like the Helmut Lang pants…and the LV luggage! But I loved the YSL blue suede boots! Why not get ’em in blue? The dog can’t dress this well!

  2. Love the list Lauren! Love Fay Cullen, they are the most reputable antique jewelry dealers on the internet. I have sent pieces to them for estimate and they always send them back in a nicely wrapped box 🙂

  3. Jill says:

    I want to be Trouble’s heir 🙂

  4. Lauren - SCS says:

    Thanks v much for the weblog awards nomination btw! I was completely unaware of the event till I saw the link in my stats and found your very kind nomination.

    I think your request is not that far away, have to fall from the sky 100 million, as long as you have confidence in yourself, through your own efforts but also can occur, people are the master of life, with the goals and confidence, Through the efforts will be realized.
