Pure Indulgence - Perfect Partnership of Man and Nature

Hello everybody!  Well, really, MAY!!!!??????  Already?

Since it's raining today in L.A. and I haven't been taking alot of my own pictures

lately, I thought I'd indulge us all with a little of these somethings that I've collected with my

magpie eyes.  The story behind them is that Mr. P. and I celebrated a biggish anniversary

LAST YEAR and ever since then, I've been toying with acquiring for myself a nice piece of jewelry.  In honor of.....and because of course, you realize, I am richly deserving.  (A little joke, I'm entitled to, at least, no?)

(also mociun)

For the record, all these months on.  I have acquired NOTHING!  And anything I eventually acquire will not remotely resemble anything like this (sadly) in scale, workmanship, or value.

Since I am one of those people who's always got hands covered in paint, dirt from the garden, or plunged into sinks full of dirty dishes......rings aren't very practical.  And I am inclined to losing things or have clasps fail me at inopportune times.......And it's true, I am not spending my weekends (or even weeknights) at gala affairs, requiring glittery things to go with my dresses.

 (mociun again)

But you know, looking has been delicious fun.

Most of these things I found on and I can't rule out them disappearing instantly from this post, since I don't own the copyright to these beauties.

I have to admit that there is a special place in my heart for English Edwardian jewelry.

And some things like this, I find utterly fascinating.  I have sworn to myself that I will eventually own this.  Which will likely only happen if I recreate it out of Sculpey!  But probably in a coral red color.

Anyway, and this will not be the first or last time I say this - dreaming is cheap!

Any good dreams lately?


  1. Happy "biggish" anniversary! We'll be celebrating our biggish one in October. We'll have to compare notes!

    So if rings don't work, I think a tiara should do just fine. You can do most anything in a tiara and look fabulous too ;^)

    (psst...still dragging my culo. I will try and write soon so we can figure out a plan!)

  2. Moi, je choisirai la bague verte sur la photo n°3 :)

  3. What fun mlle p! Best way to shop... window shopping because you can have it all... and as you say no fear of losing precious things.
    Very Happy biggish anniversary!

  4. why yes! polymer goes a long way. i own a pretty wolf's head like that.
    big is fun. how big?!
    congrats, hey!!
