Mostly Random Thoughts and pics
First, the really kewl necklace above sold at the last FM, so I don't have it anymore, but I loved that it started out as a old vintage boy scout order of the arrow bookmark.
I loved the shape it had, so building it was really just about making a silhouette that I liked as much as the original shape.
It's amazing where we find stuff to make jewelry out of. Today Jerry was paying our parking for work.. which is a downtown church. Someone had dropped off a domestic sewing machine as a donation. Jerry asked them how much, they looked at him like he was crazy, but he bought it on the spot.
I love the domestics sewing machines. They got bought out in the early 30's but they continued to sell the stock with the old branding until they ran out. I just adore the tag on these, "domestic" in a pretty script.
I usually just make bracelets out of the tag, but I got a idea of a big statement piece using it. I hope I can carry it out, it looks fantastic in my head!
I am a NPR junkie at work when I can. However for my mental health, I'm thinking I need to limit listening or cut it out entirely, it's just so damn depressing and I get so furious at the raging hypocritical government we currently have. Don't get me started.
I'm noticing a trend in commercials, more and more gay couples are being portrayed in a positive, "this is real life" affirming way. Yeah! One last year had 2 dads worried about a sick child, and I just saw a Vegas commercial this weekend featuring 2 women getting married.
This means of course that Gay folks are not as cool anymore.. cause they are mainstreaming. I bet they are OK with this, at least the mainstreaming part :)
So raised your hand if you cried during Handmaid last week. I dread / can't wait for the new episode next Wednesday .
I love my hubby.
I'm almost 50. My body is wearing out. My soul will be forever.
