The kitty asleep on ipad, that glow... so cute.  I finally found link to insider and saw the "4-way coat" that Susan has been talking about for TSV thanksgiving.  Removable vest liner and fur hood.  Doesn't look like the fur can be removed by itself like the ole "road kill" coat, which by the way is finally at last clicks (small only)... so close to being GONE for good!

 

Took a sneak peak at December, and not looking any better on "new" tsv's for me at least.  Just more or less  "improved" versions (new colors!) of the old ones, keruig, epilator, kitchen aid, etc, etc, etc....

All I have left to buy are a few gift cards and I am DONE and DONE for Christmas shopping. 

Not sure which is worse, seeing the same or products or HEARING the same sales pitches for all the products!


@vicalynn  Hi LYNNSY---now who could forget the INFAMOUS "road kill coat".....and now Susan and the Q will present a new coat as the TSV for Thanksgiving.....let's hope the reviews turn out better for this one.....LOL!!!!

I agree I love the kitty sleeping on the ipad----cute kitty indeed! Cat Very Happy

CONGRATS on getting your holiday shopping done---now you can relax and enjoy the holidays---great feeling isn't it!!!

That is a difficult choice---the repetitive products or the repetitive sales speech----some I'm sure customers could recite them without help from the hosts!!!  

 Enjoy your weekend!!!

------------------------

Nice pics again, Spurt!! Always start my Friday by looking thru your post!!

Even worse are the repetitive hosts - seems like there are always the same ones presenting on the channel!!  Yikes!!  Where is everybody...would love to see more of some the more tenured hosts!!

Cool and beautiful here today @SPURT, after a rather dismal day yesterday. Can't say I did much, but it's just so much nicer to see some sun and feel a chill in the air as we approach holiday season.

OMG @SPURT, La Marm has reached a whole other level of annoying. I wanted to see the "woodland" collection, so tuned in ever so briefly. First, there wasn't much "woodland" to be seen... but then there was the whole me, me, me, I, I, I act...  Then there was the whole test pattern... motif... The clincher was when she asked a guest what he was doing to 'her' set. That's it. Never again. I couldn't turn it off fast enough. I cannot fathom how she was selected to do this series of shows. Talk about annoying to the point of insufferable at each and every level... These decor shows might have been the only holiday programming from QVC I watched. Instead, there was none.

Oh and @SPURT in case you missed it, (and are better off if you did) "woodland" translated into about half dozen not very appealing items, some of which were still more mercury glass... Quite the snore... Zzzzzzzzzzzz...

Hi Spurt!   I received a jazzed up email this morning from Q about Black Friday WEEK deals.  I laughed and deleted it....it was the same old, same old, same old stuff they offer at least 1-2 days a week out of eeeevvvvvvvery week of the year.   No bargains when comparing prices to other online retailers.

@stevieb  Why, I just saw a promo featuring "your man" and other hosts, tauting an all day Tuesday A HOST OF GIFT FAVORITES!!!!  So don't miss out now, be watching, since they've limited these shows this season (probably because as you pointed out, the customers laugh at loud, how all the hosts coincidently pick the SAME gifts)......

 

BTW KL is giving her best friend a Clarisonic, personally I would not give a friend a hygiene gift unless they specfically asked for it, unless you never want to see that person again!!! Woman Wink

 

Let's see our cold front is supposed to arrive in exactly 39 minutes according to the weather morons!!!!---I just hope they're right---ready for some more cool weather! Woman Very Happy

 

Enjoy your day!

@stevieb  Hey STEVIE---I was watching my Spurs LOSE....and turned the channel during the commercial and caught the very spot in her show that you mentioned....where she chastised "the designer" for messing up her set!!!!  How CRASS!!! Woman Frustrated  And her theme song should be George Harrison's song, "I, Me, Mine".......  Woman Tongue  I quickly turned the channel--- I'd rather watch a lousy game, then hearing her talk over the vendor or make her usual constant references ......

 

Alberti was over on the HOLIDAY section of the FORUM sharing some photos and I mentioned to him many of us would love to see him host a home decor show....I don't know if he will take the idea to TPTB but I sure wish he would!!!!  I like his ideas better!!!

@stevieb  I checked out the RECENT ITEMS ON AIR and the only thing I liked was the mercury glass birds BY VALERIE and LR was the one that originally presented them...Woman Frustrated The "faux leather" stuff was downright ugly!!!

 

 

It's always the SAME thing in her shows that she says took Months to plan and I can't imagine why-- it's ALWAYS throws, picks, garland, a santa, overpriced ornaments (I'd rather go to Pier 1 at least they have some lovely things even though their prices are higher than other places).....she didn't present it this show, but she seems to love beaded fruit and have beaded fruit garlands, wreaths, and pillars with beaded fruit wrapped around them----I do NOT like BEADED fruit!!! ZZZZZZZZZZZ is right!!!

 

Now to be fair, I was looking online and did order the bottle brush decorated trees that she presented on an earlier show---I've been looking online and in gift shops for the Radko Shiny Brit ones to go with my village---they were kind of pricey, so I was searching for an alternative and I couldn't believe Q's price was a good one even with shipping....they are very nice.....but that's the ONLY thing I've bought from her stuff in YEARS!
