Meanwhile, In The Real World...

I have practically forgotten about the blog for almost two weeks! Most unlike me... well, here's what's been up in the real world during my virtual world absence:

Some new delightful delights, to be listed in the shop over the next few days. As always, if you're interested in one now, just send me a convo for a reserved listing!
Strawberry Lime Sorbet Necklace

Still in need of a good name

I think I'll keep this one for myself, although I haven't decided for sure yet. The heart is one of a kind, so it's hard to part with...

On Father's Day, I went to Hohenzollern Castle with my parents. It's about an hour's drive away and totally worth it. Here's the view from the road... it was a muggy day (though surprisingly cold) so the shot's not very good. But it was such a sight to see! Very majestic and impressive and grandiose and all that jazz.

Here's the super-dee-dooper slippers they made us wear so our shoes wouldn't scratch up the old floor. We were all able to realize our dreams of becoming world-class figure skaters.

And here's more in the crafty vein: I'm having a blast cooking! Not really anything fancy (and rarely from a recipe). I'm just following my nose and having a ball!

Pasta with shrimp, avocado, fried bell peppers, and gruyere. Mmmm.

Caprese Salad. Mmmmmmmm.

And some diseased-looking (but totally delicious, I promise!) sushi. I took a class at work for this one. And I'm so glad I did! The classes at Patch Multi-Crafts are just fantastic! (A subtle little work plug never hurt, especially when your bosses read your blog! HA!)

Hope you all had fantastic weeks in the real-world like I did!

I love the necklace you're wearing, you shoudl definitly keep it! Why no picture of your bangs? I have never been so jealous/envious of someones haircut till now:) You look stunning!

the earrings you don't have a name for...the look victorian (the rose) or Tudor period...the "Tudor Rose" (my favorite period)

love the jewelry! I've worn those shoes a couple of times before.... they're super fun (and flattering to your foot size)!

Adie said...

omg!! We went to Hohenzollern Castle whiles my parents were here, and I have an identical picture of our feet! Aren't those slippers funny?

And, weirdly enough, I just had caprese salad Thursday night, we went to a friends for dinner for Bran's birthday. It was delicious!

The jewelry looks great, as always!

Jennifer: thanks! you are adorable! Maybe i will post them... and I do also like Tudor Rose...
Katelyn: i am already self-conscious about my feet... but this way everyone can be conscious together!
Adie: Yummmmmm.
Lizy: they're not highlights! It's the sun that does this to my hair every year.

Hello Jenny,
