I’m not a bracelet wearer. Frankly, my wrist is just too small for anything to ever stay on it. When I was in my late teens, my sister made me a beaded bracelet. It wasn’t all perfectly beaded with wooden beads, instead, it was a mish mosh of sparkly gems and silver balls. It was a disorganized disco party, specially designed for my teeny tiny, happy wrist. Besides this custom made sparkle fest, my wrist never successfully embraced other bracelets such as the impossible bangle. But today I found this curled, gold leaf, wrist wrap. If it didn’t cost almost $2000, it could have maybe been just be the bracelet to break my bare armed streak.
Once a week, every week, I will be featuring one awesome item. I’ll choose a dazzler that will either be difficult to forget or difficult to live without. We’ll call this series “Pot of Gold.” Our first Pot of Gold is not only funny, cute and totally wearable but I think it will be a difficult one to leave behind in the never purchased dust. I present you…. the lips and eyes ring set!
Red lips, amber rhinestone and an eye with a three-dimensional (yes three-dimensional!!) black eyelash. What more could you possibly ask for?
Creature Comforts just posted some great juice on a beautiful necklace by etsy’s Imogene and Annie. I checked out some of this designer’s other work and was really quite smitten with it. I love how all the structured metal is livened up by pops of candy-like color. These are my faves (I almost want to eat those earrings):
So this weekend called for another breather from city life. This time we chose to drive a few hours north to a beautiful nature reserve. We brought the dog with us as usual, but were told once we got there that she wasn’t allowed to come on the trails with us. Feeling terrible about leaving her stuck in the car, we didn’t linger too long while we were there. But guilt aside, this was one of my favorite field trips we’ve taken so far. It wasn’t that the reserve was huge and empty of people, it was actually quite small and fairly populated. It was the weather that played a huge part in this great day. Dark clouds hovered over powerful sun rays which made for a dramatic back drop. Then after the clouds eventually burst, the colors were fantastic! Like after every great storm, the greens were greener, the yellows were yellower, etc… The highlight of the trip though, which turned us into a couple of gross camera happy tourists, was the herd of wild water buffalo, just roaming about oh 50 feet away. So… this week’s trip picks theme is “nature tourist nerd caught in rain storm.”
