You’ll have to forgive me for the fuschia overdose. I couldn’t believe it when I saw that the Empire State Building was in fuschia pink last Monday. Gorgeous!
I always make it a point to take a peek when I can before I walk out the door, but this was one of those days that I had no chance to. When I saw it as I looked up as I walked onto Avenue of the Americas, I had to cross the street away from my bus stop to get a good vantage point for a picture. Not quite as crisp as I would want, but I took my time and experimented.
If there’s one color that makes me happy, it’s fuschia pink. I wear it practically everyday. Oh, correction, I DO wear it everyday because I have at least 4 coats in that color.
My printer just “ate” a 32gig micro SD memory card. I saw it slip into an outer paper tray when I lifted the paper in the feed, and it somehow found its way into the printer, somewhere I cannot dig in to get it out. I will worry about that tomorrow. I have another memory card to put into the adaptor for the camera. The fog is so heavy I don’t think I’ll get the chance to shoot any pics tonight, but you’ll never know. (Reaching into my stash of spare 2gig micro SDs in my purse.)
My Christmas Tree and other holiday trimmings are all boxed up and ready to be put away for good until next December. This year, I’m getting the holiday cards together and recycling, and what I cannot recycle or repurpose before the month is up will be disposed of. I get all sentimental about holiday cards and have promised myself to do this the last 2 years but I haven’t been too good with that. The good news is that I am participating in a Recycled Christmas card Artist Trading Card swap which should give me an excuse to get started on this “project” tonight.
And I did finally get to put up a listing in my Etsy Shop. This lovely Freshwater Pearl Bangle Trio is available at the shop for $45.00.
“You are looking at a set of three bangles (hence, the “trio”) with alternating quartets of pastel blue, pink, yellow and beige set on gold-tone memory wire. The ends are fastened with a tiny gold tone clasp. The round potato freshwater pearls are approximately 8-9mm each. There are 27 pearls in each bangle and this trio is made up of over a strand of these pearls. The circumference of the bracelet is at approximately 8″ which makes it hang nicely below the wrist. I love the sound of the pearls when they give off their own unique “jangle” as you move.
The inside diameter of the bracelet is 7 1/2 inches. I can extend this bracelet by adding gold-tone chain links on the end to which the lobster clasp attaches to.”
I think I’ve finally ticked off my list over the weekend.. a few days late, but did them all!
Time to head out.. into the cold rain.. or maybe even some snow. First, I have to change attire — don the jeans and the pretty fuschia pink puff jacket. =) Another day done..
I almost forgot — new “ABOUT” page here…
