Not Your Grandmother's Bloggers

Idiosyncratic Fashionistas interviewed for
ADONE Magazine's first anniversary The Artist/The Muse issue!

When ADONE editor Gilda Furgiuele contacted us to request an interview for "The Artist. The Muse." issue, of course we said yes. We didn't ask if we were to be the artists or the muses or both. Either of those titles is fine with us. (Maybe we should put them on our next batch of business cards?) Gilda has called us "not your grandmother's bloggers".  Maybe we should add that, too.

That we appeared (below) in the Fashion section was also fine with us. The article titled "Golden Years" in the Fashion section contains on-line excerpts of our interview.  (Just click on photos to enlarge.)

Here's the cover page of ADONE. (Logically, that should have gone first, but -sigh - we're not on it. It IS a great cover, though.)

Actually, if you scroll down the cover page, we DO appear. And we're in good company - right next to The New Museum. Although we appear below the e-fold, so to speak, technically we are still on the first page, which is way cool.

Now, some of you are saying but these pictures are so small! (In the words of Norma Desmond from Sunset Boulevard:  "I am big. It's the pictures that got small.") Yes, but don't sweat it. Now it's time for you to go to the real thing. There is a full length interview and additional photos in pdf format. For most of our appearance in ADONE, click on any of the links we've provided. (Click here.) To see the whole thing, go back to the cover page, and click on AM issue web3, which we've circled in red in the photo below for your convenience. Or go to: and scroll down to pages 24-26 for more photos of us and the full interview.

Wait till you see what we have to say about... (Never mind. That would spoil it!)

And now for something completely different...

If you're old, like we are, you might remember a time when batteries in packages came with a free (FREE!) disposable/reusable paper battery tester, so you could check the quality of the product yourself. Those days are long gone, apparently.  Undeterred, Valerie wanted a battery tester, so she went online to see what was out there.

This is one of the things that she discovered: (Click on the image to enlarge.)


  1. Fabulous interview! Valerie's words struck me! xxoo

  2. I remember those battery testers! Forgotten clean about them until now. Wonder whatever happened to 'em...

    Congratulations on your feature! I just found your blog through Forest City Fashionista and I'm already a fan. I look forward to reading more!

  3. Congratulations! Great interview and fabulous photo!
