Airport Zombies

You know them. People who are brought to the airport 4 hours early by Super Shuttle or who land in some hub like DFW or Charlotte at some God-forsaken hour like 4am with a 3 hour layover. The Airport Zombie. They've already done Pizza Hut, perused the magazine covers for hints on how to get those swimsuit-ready abs or achieve the perfect orgasm, contemplated buying a Charlotte gift mug or a DFW plastic snow globe, had a Cinnabon, and now wander the concourses very slowly with a blank expression and vacant eyes and a venti Starbucks. Be kind to them.

You Say It's Your Birthday...

Ok, you don't really say much of anything, but after all this time, I find I do understand most of what you try to get across. Anyhow, my girl is 12 years old today. Ancient in doggie years and pretty damn old for a pitbull.

Kana is my best friend and constant companion - hardly ever much farther than 6" away... If it weren't for her, I'd probably be more nuts than I am.

Happy Birthday Kana!

I'm on a Vintage Lucite Bender

I admit it, I fell in love. I love the color, the design, the size. The second I saw these vintage Lucite flowers I knew exactly what the rings would look like. There you go. These wonderful burnt-orange (what? pansies?) flowers are big, but lightweight. They are riveted to a heavy gauge sterling band. Fun, but sort of sophisticated too. Definitely love. I bought all they had, which was only a few. I call it the Lamore Ring.

Then, I saw these too groovy beach-ballish, chinese-lanterny, fluted beads and I had to have them too. I've paired them with a long, slender brass tab. The are called Riviera Earrings in my Etsy shop. They make my jewelry making heart sing! Unfortunately I was too slow on the uptake. I only got a few when I saw them; when I went back... gone. All gone. I nearly cried - until I found other Lucite cuties.

Now: No. More. Supplies. I have WAY too much in the house and need to make with what I have before I allow myself to spend on anything else. Really.

Happy Birthday Daddy!

My dear old father is turning 89 today! There should be a lot more candles on that cake. To me that's crazy old, but I know someone else who's turning 90 in a couple of weeks.

Happy Birthday guys! You're amazing!
