Many apologies for my absence... I've been ringing in the new year, welcoming my favorite boyfriend back to the East Coast and suffering through the snow (it's been blizzarding for a week now...)
I bought this barrette (and its broken partner) in Venice. While there, I discovered that there are basically two types of shops along the canals: those that sell glass products (jewelry, mostly) and those that sell elaborately creepy Carnivale masks. I kind of feel like a Gondolier in my nautical stripes (fact: I once played Tessa in the Unadilla Theatre production of The Gondoliers here in Vermont), but the gold tassel makes me feel a little more old-lady-on-a-cruise-ship.
What I wouldn't give to be sailing the seven seas in the summertime right now...
I got some black leather gloves for Christmas this year (yay!) Without my coat they look a little more Michael Jackson than they probably should, but since I mentioned my participation in the Gondoliers I'm going to go ahead and call them theatrical.
Now I kind of look like a mime. Forgive me, I'm a rusty blogger!
