Look what I got!

Whoo hoo!

I took part in Stinky Paws' "International Santa Paws" gift exchange, in which we each agreed to send something hand- or home-made to another blogger. I sent my package off to my assigned recipient earlier this week, and today I got my own.

Looky, looky! As you can see, it is beautiful and completely appropriate, given my standing as the (self-proclaimed) Queen of Accessories. It is layered dichroic glass with sterling silver, and I love, love, love it. Thanks, mystery blogger! (Though, actually, I can pretty much tell from the return address--as could my recipient. Hee.)

And a super big thank-you to Stinky Paws for arranging everything--what fun!

So, what else has been going on? Not just a whole heck of a lot, clearly, as you can tell from my dismal posting record of late. Still seeing Hot Med, who's still having the occasional lapse into jerkdom. I've pretty much figured out how to deal with said lapses and snap him out of it, though. I just treat him like a petulant adolescent, and refuse to let him get me upset.

And so it goes. For now, the good still outweighs the bad. It's really hard to stay mad at someone who says, "ooh...beautiful today" EVERY time he sees you, you know?

Once the holidays and their attendant madness pass, I promise to get back to posting more regularly. It will be my New Year's Resolution. It's either that, or get back to exercising more regularly...gee, wonder which one is more likely to come to pass? Heh.

as one accessories junkie to another, i am admiring your gorgeous necklace, toots.

med was well-behaved at book club. he was even polite to the dog. if he would just learn more english it might be easier for you. i swear, is he just pretending at this point?

Beautiful necklace.

I know what you mean about the posting - I just haven't been able to get into it.

Beautiful! She really makes beautiful jewellery (that much I know!) It is fun to see what people are getting. Thank YOU for participating!

That is so gorgeous, love, love, love.

I am worried my person hasn't received hers yet.

Ooh, pretty! Did Paisley's sister make that, by chance? (Are we still calling her Paisley even though she no longer has a blog, or can I just call her Angela now?) :-) Maybe it wasn't, but in any case, Angela's sister makes dichroic glass jewelry too.

Stef, I hadn't made the connection, but apparently so!
