    I am loving the silvery hair :)

    They don’t make planes like they used to. But you do look a happy little traveller.

    Hair? What’s that?

    Well, hello, pretty Cheerful Cherie the Capri Islander, with your cool tortoiseshell shades on! :)

    I’m just curious why you didn’t wear the diamond-head snake necklace from the shop we saw earlier as well? (Because a giant snake necklace with a giant diamond (?) for a head is SO you and all, Cleopatra) ;)

    I dunno, maybe you would, it is kind of a cool necklace in an artistic sort of way – I’m just not sure I’ve ever gotten the vibe that you’re into big, flashy bling, either, as I’m not – but I could be wrong.

    If I am, let me know and Mark and I will put it on your birthday and Christmas gift list – give us about 30 years to finance it, though, if that’s real diamond ;)

      Those cool shades are my prescription sunglasses :-)

      I rather liked the artwork in the snake necklace but it something I would never wear. I prefer much more delicate pieces of jewelry. I would normally be wearing my little gold heart locket that was my grandmothers, but the chain broke whilst I was away. I still haven’t got around to fixing it. It still in the tissue I wrapped before placing it my glasses case so that I did not lose it. But now it is a little china box beside my bed.

        Ah, the cool shades that also protected your eyes from the snow glare not long ago? ;) Well, wearing them the Jackie O way, sailing to Capri, is a lot more fun than that day, I bet :)

        I love the more delicate stuff too, less is more – save for my signature silver hoop earrings. But I have a pair of small pearl earrings wrapped in a delicate celtic knot I wear for special occasions that my husband bought me, which came from Ireland through store here in town called “Failte” (“Welcome” in Gaelic), owned by a lady named Lucy who herself is an Irish import :) Pearls are the only “gem” I wear, I’m not big into diamonds. I actually am drawn more to the artistry of the band on my wedding ring than the actual diamond, I could care less about the diamond. Ha!

        That’s lovely, about your locket from your grandmother – we treasure these heirlooms, don’t we? Precious gems or costume jewelry alike, because of their history and sentiment :)

        My daughter wears a locket from my grandmother in fact – which she keeps in a jewelry box that belonged to my great aunt (my grandmother’s sister, the one who was a WW2 Army nurse) because her initials were engraved upon it and are the same as my daughter’s :)

          My wedding ring is my grandmothers (paternal side) and the locket it is my maternal grandmothers. I have rings from both of them which I wear occasionally :-)
