In which I WIN SOMETHING AND MUST SHOUT MY EXCITEMENT FROM SOMEPLACE VERY HIGH

Another Cars' quote. Didja catch it?

So, I done won something. Lyramare was doing a giveaway on The Barrel, and (if you haven't caught on already), I WON IT. 

I. Won. I.

My prize arrived in a beauteous box wrapped in a slinky black ribbon. It made me think of French things.


The earrings are gorgeous -a perfect blend of distinctiveness and everyday casual. They match everything.


I wore them yesterday with a different necklace - I don't like to go too matchy-matchy with my accessories - and got lots of compliments. Sunshine said they looked like berries, and tried to eat them.


Silly Sunshine.

So - when I take pictures of myself, at least the first twenty are throwaways. Does this happen to you?

I always have this weird "look natural, look natural, look natural, look natural" look on my face - usually involving lip curling and squinty eyes - that doesn't look natural at all.

It's not until I start cracking up at myself that I find any good ones.




Thank you Lyramare, for not only providing me with pretty things, but helping me not take myself seriously for at least ten minutes.

Pretty, shiny jewelry! I love it. And you are simply adorable. I can't take a good picture of myself at all. I always look like a major dork trying to be a major model.

It's very cute! I love the headband look, too. That never seems to work on me.
