36 In Misc


Back in Texas for not quite a day.  We got in late last night, and were met by a very unwelcome visitor.  We found a nice sized copper head curled up on our front porch.  Being the big sissies we are, we called the police.  The great thing about living in a small town is that the police don't have much to do. They were thrilled to get the call. We had two squad cars at our door in less than a minute–I'm not kidding.  It took the two officers a good while to get the snake wrangled, and I'm completely against killing any living thing, but, poisonous snakes have to go.

Once I finally made it inside, I was so excited to find that I had a package from 2 necklaces


This is my bracelet….

Erica and Dustin Nelson also make this great line of rings for Hitchcock.

Druzy quartz rings. Druzy is the name of the natural sugar like formation in the quartz.

I'm so excited that they sent one to me!  They retail for under $250.00, and come in many different colors.  

Contact Hitchcock.     Phone-206 838 7173  Seattle

I'm off to NY for just a couple of days.

    I’m glad you got rid of the snake. It’s a shame that they had to kill it, but those things are dangerous. I’m glad we don’t have snakes in cities in Europe! I’d definitely freak out if I saw one too.
    Ans I’m so in love with this ring!!!

    I find it funny that you have all this jewellry of dinosaurs and insects and whatnot. But when you found a real snake you called the police. LOL

    Lisa, I get the security warning as well. I am not going to try enter it as it comes up that it is an attack site.

    Dinosaur jewelry = love. It brings me back to the Land Before Time loving five-year-old lurking deep within this fashionable facade.
    But that ring? Oh, please give it to me. It’s simply divine and would make the most amazing addition to my cocktail ring collection! 🙂

    Hi Judy,
    Since I saw the beautiful Christopher Kane dress on your blog, I figured you might be interested in knowing that Christopher Kane designed a guest collection for Topshop!
    The prices will be from 80-300 euro´s if I´m correct and there are already many pictures to find on Google if you search for Christopher Kane topshop.

    Well one of the theories explain how on 2012 the earth will suffer from a pole shift, and it is been said that it is going to happen because of the mayor solar flares that will hit us on 2012.
