Checking In.

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, so I have embarked on my Lenten depravations...no shopping and no sweets. Hopefully, I will be both wealthier and thinner by the time Easter rolls around. Unfortunately, I may also be crankier. :-\

I have started thinking about my Easter ensemble. If I lose 5-10 pounds during Lent, I will be wearing a pale taupe tweed suit with black and turquoise accents and a turquoise hat. If I lose 10-15 pounds during Lent, I will be wearing a zippered red suit with a red/black/white hat.

BTW, are we going to do another virtual Easter Parade this year?

Look at these beauties!

And they're mine, all mine!

It turns out that three of the bangle bracelets that I bought recently are too small. I have to have an opening width of 2 1/2 to 2 5/8 to be able to fit a bracelet over my hand. I think I'll bring them to work and see if anyone with smaller hands would like to have them.

Today, I'm wearing a wide white bangle, a vintage pale green bangle, a vintage black moonglow lucite bangle, and an apple green turquoise bead bracelet. The pale green and black bangles belonged to my mother.

Stop me, before I shop again.

I want to buy these, but I'm waiting.

And thus, I give in to my craving.

I just bought a lot of 41 bangles on Ebay. Good grief.

Bangle Envy

Ever since I saw these pics on Project Rungay, I've been craving bangles.

I have a number of bangles that I've collected over the years, but only a very few of them are big and chunky like these. Back in the '80's, I had some amazing wood bangles that would have been perfect for this season, but I can't remember what I did with them.
