I'm going to be taking a day or two off. I'll be back on Monday. I have plenty to blather on about and share with my dear readers, but this wallpaper job will have my attention tied up for a bit.
I had mentioned on Facebook the other day that I was going to bring the pearl necklace back. I have a strand of real pearls that my parents gave me years ago. I wore them at our wedding and I think I wore them to my high school graduation.
I started wearing them again a few days ago. The clasp had been broken for years and all that held it together in the back was a tiny safety pin.
I had been meaning to take it somewhere for repair, but wore it so infrequently, I just kept putting it off.
Last night, the strand broke! I managed to keep most of the pearls on the strand and save the rest to be restrung. I put it all in a little baggie and I suppose it will make a trip to the jewelry docs soon to get put back together and get a new clasp and all! Oh well.
I will leave you with a necklace I wear quite a bit. I like to think of it as my modern day "pearl necklace".
I found it at Kohl's and I think I had a $10 off coupon, so I got it almost for free! I do loves me a freebie (or a nearly freebie - you know I'm cheap like that!).
So, I will be back on Monday morning. But, in the meantime - probably in the evenings, when I've had my fill of wallpaper removal for the day - I WILL be reading and commenting on all your blogs. I couldn't stand to miss a one!
