bits of my bedroom

I love the Nouveau style of this earring tree. I particularly love that it was only $5.

Porcelain rose necklace with suede ties. I never wear it...look how big it is!

I try it on from time to time, but then I picture myself getting tipsy and tripping and falling on my face, which would of course result in shards of rose petals being driven into my throat. Then my loved ones would have to explain that I was killed by a necklace.

A print by one of my favorite photographers, Sheila Metzner, and a framed Alphonse Mucha postcard of Sarah Bernhardt.

A closer look. The print is actually one of many pages that I tore out of a Metzner book when I was a (stupid) teenager. I then lost what was left of the book. Said book is long out of print and now costs $$$. Sigh.

hehe laura you really have a way of describing thing. makes me laugh every time. i envision the headline "tragic death by necklace" thanks for your good luck wishes. the reason for my absense in the blogosphere is two job interviews this week - today and tomorrow + my birthday today + family visit = general chaos : ) but in a good way. the first one (interview) went well. one down, one to go. have a great thursday!

Happy birthday Lea! I hope you have a wonderful day. Interviews can be nerve wracking (obviously), so glad the first one went well, I'm sure the second one will too, you have a lot of talent!
