Post-holiday blues

Sorry to have been all absent lately - I've been sick, so I haven't done much of anything for the last week or so. (I did go visit my dad one day, though - we never spend Christmas in the same place any more so a post-Christmas visit has become traditional.)

I know I haven't gotten out much in the last year, but I have yet to see anybody actually wearing one of these gigantic necklaces, have you? (You have to scroll down a ways go see the examples I'm talking about in that link - but many of the other things on the way down are interesting, too!)

After Christmas I sometimes get in the mood for pink, thinking about Valentine's Day. (I guess that might be a good color for things to sell, too, come to that.) Last night I started a bracelet with fuchsia Swarovski bicones, we'll see how it comes out. The other thing, color-wise, that I'm in the mood for is blue - lovely cobalt mixed with paler blue. I am going to have to see if I have anything in my stash that picks up on that!

I thought those oversized necklace wear were outdated in the 70s! Looks like they came back along with bellbottoms and some of those other things I didn't wear as a kid! :D

Glad you are feeling better. I'm in a blue mood myself. Blue and red are the colors I've been combining. Must be the purple thing talking.

Oh, I love purple, too. :)
