DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.

Chinese Auction

A couple weeks ago, there was a Chinese auction at the county building. I made out like a bandit! I won a cute little lamp, a simple wooden jewelry box I'm planning on using for Hubby's stuff, and this:

Hmmm... the necklace I won is getting a little lost in this pic. I'll try again:

It's still not showing as much of the detail as I would like... one more go:

That's as good as its going to get, I suppose. It's shineee! I wish it were a smidge shorter, but I might change the clasp to shorten it a mite. I'm liking the echo of the squiggly lines in the necklace with those in the shirt.

This type of glass pendant is really popular in this area... everyone and her sister has one. Now I finally fit in! Is that a good or bad thing?

Tossed on my reliable glass earrings to finish off the look. But with this new haircut, my daangly earrings don't show up very well anymore. Hmmmmm....

  1. Beautiful jewelry like this is art. It's gorgeous whether other people wear it or not. I adore glass pieces.

    And your posts are getting better and better. The new hairdo helps, but what I really like seeing in this one is that deep, sincere smile. You look so truly happy. Hurrah!

  2. Yes, what Ralph said! I love this little "piece of art". My earrings always get lost in my curly hair, unless they are super bold. Hair-occupational hazard. : >

  3. Love your glass earrings, Have a great weekend
