Some Days You Read...

Some Days you Post....


before I launch into my observations of today, 
just completed this piece,


a multi-strand necklace, made entirely by hand,
even the chains.
faceted turquoise & iolite (the dark blue stone)
with Swarovski crystals on sterling silver.






Sometimes my Google Reader gets so backed up with unread blog posts
from all of the wonderful people I follow...I must put everything aside and simply 
read them and respond to as many as possible.

I know we all face this.  
I feel it's a responsibility.
And, it's a pleasure too.

I've recently observed there are many young ladies who ONLY
post photographs of themselves wearing various assortments of apparel.
Now, someone please tell me, how could this be interesting to anyone else?
I mean it.

Also, The Sartorialist.  
Granted, when he began his "street style" snaps he must have filled 
some kind of void for the media, as he's been wildly successful with this.  
Frankly, I don't get it !
I am immediately bored with photographs of unknown folks going about
their usual day-to-day activities.  
Unless, there is a sharp-dressed gentleman in this milieu, I mean
(forgive me,  Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top is my 2nd cousin, this is his line).

And, today I have enough to worry about:
Did George Clooney really break-up with Elizabetta?
Is Casey Anthony guilty?
Is Newt Gingrich going to get his act together?
How am I going to get my as-yet-unwritten trashy novel published?
& other epic stuff.

I simply do not care about these empty vapid blog posts.
And, have you ever tried to "unfollow" someone who is in your
Google Reader?  Impossible.  So, these little girl blogs still show up.
Sorry, if I'm offending some of you, my friends, this is the real me talking here.

Now, I do love The Realestalker.
He talks trash about everyone famous buying or selling a home.
I mean, does Jennifer Anniston have enough talent to be able to
own many homes all over the place, and to put a $45 Million
price tag on her place in L.A.?  And, then to go out and buy
not 1, not 2, but 3 apartments in the same building in NYC for
multi-millions more + add the price of redoing and joining all 3 of these.
I know, I know...she's a movie star.  
But what does this say about the way we compensate people?

Do you think any of our Navy Seals (or anyone in the military)
get paid enough to do the jobs they do?   NO!

Now, I'm drifting...

It rained in Texas last night.  
We have been suffering a drought of biblical proportions and I am thankful for 
our livestock's good fortune today.  
My flowers are dancing, happily.

 I will leave you with this image below,
just because it's so beautiful.

  1. Boy, oh boy, oh boy -- I love you right back.

    Tons. You go girl. You're the best.

    From time to time we've got to vent and rant. It's healthy.

    Someday when my bateau comes in I plan to order something from you.

    Your are soooo talented.

  3. First - the new necklace is stunning. I love it.

    Second - I'm with you on the fashion blogs that are only photos of the blogger in a series of outfits. The only time I think this is interesting is when they actually write something about how to "get the look for less" or something of that nature.

    Third - I love this ranting post. You're a doll!

  9. Hello darling - loving the necklace. Such an amazing colour, and I love how the crystals sparkle inbetween all that turquoise. A beautiful Summers night dream! xx

    Self-indulgent blogs.. Yes, they can be a bit much and I don't really have time for them either. My friends on the other hand.. Always! xx

    Hugs from afar

  12. Ooooo Marsha,
    Before I say anything else, that last image is just mouth-wateringly gorgeous !!
    I agree with all that you say. The money that some people earn is sometimes positively obscene, isn't it ( &, that's really not sour grapes) Footballer's ( along with other sportsmen and celebrities) earn many millions a year for just kicking a ball around and then have affairs all over the place. My best and oldest friend is a nurse who works in a hospice,doing the most harrowing but most worthwhile job, and gets paid a pittance.....I'm afraid that life is unfair and always will be.
    Your necklace is beautiful ( as all of your pieces).....you are obviously in your blue period at the moment !!!! XXXX

  13. Marsha, you are an artist! This necklace is a piece of joy!

    I have a letter from a very nasty reader and my post I would love to post. Maybe someday...
    Have a blessed and happy day, friend!
    xo Yvonne

  16. Hi Marsha I love the colour of the dress in the last image and ooh! Hydrangeas... Your latest jewellery is gorgeous I love how the faceted beads catch the glinting light.

    I know what you mean about the Stars and the fact that we don't compensate people who work at the nitty-gritty end of this life. It sure doesn't seem right!

    Hugs dear friend,
    Jane

  17. I like your site first came across looking for stuff about Capri especially Capri in the 60's my epoch which inspired me among other things to create my label Beautiful Fuchsia made on the French Riviera, a line of classic shift dresses inspired by 'your royalty, as well as Grace Kelly and the like here on the cote d'azur, where I am writing about Fashion from the French Riviera and presenting my first capsule collection.Handpainted original cotton prints from Como in Italy. I am sure even from your music choice that we have a pas mal de chose en common! Thanks for your feel good pages and your your beautiful bijoux.Gigi Beautiful Fuchsia.
