Jewelry and Dishes..these are a few of my favorite things....

SO this week has been pretty much up and down.  Of course the day I post my "Zumba" post in which I am determined to get up and dance....I get a migraine.  That evening when I got home from work I felt it coming.....my head hurt, my neck was stiff, and my pupils were really really tiny.....yup...a migraine was coming.  I took some meds and then it hit me like a train.  I locked myself in the darkest room in my house, the bedroom.  It's crazy how even the smallest ray of light shining in front the street can make your head want to explode.  Or how the noise of the heater or your cell phone can make you want to cry.  That's where I stayed for a good 18 hours or so until it went away.  Uh......hate them.  I have kept a journal in the past to try and figure out what triggers them such as certain foods etc.  Once again, hate them.

Then today we received about 4-5 inches of snow thanks to the "ARCTIC BLAST".....So every school was closed, including the one I work at.  Tim had gotten home from his four day trip late last night, so it was very nice to be home on a snow day with my dearest husband.  I also ventured out in my backyard to take some pics of the snow.  Then I got bit by the creative bug and decided to host a little photo shoot in my dining room.  Hence the new profile pic above....  :)  I also ventured into my "jewelry bag" and photographed a few of my favorite pieces.  I LOVE chunky antique/antique looking jewelry.  I also LOVE antique glass and dishes.  I currently have my set of "Green Manhattan Glass" and "Green Moon and Stars" on display in my china cabinet.  It runs in the family, this whole obession with dishes.  My mom also LOVES dishes and has a huge collection of "Red" glass dishes...the square ones, not the round ones.  We both could spend hours in an antique shop just looking at dishes.....and we do.  :)  SO I thought it would be a great idea to incorporate jewelry and dishes......two of my favorite things.  Here are a fews pics from today.  You may want to grab a blanket and some hot cocoa, cause baby it's cold outside. :)  Enjoy!


That's my Gracie.....she loves snow....


She looks like a wolf...the cutest little furry wolf in the whole wide world!


We also had 45mph winds which are no fun.....poor little boo boo....that's what I call her...
my "little boo boo"... :)


This was the snow blowing off the roof.....


Brrrrr....


Then it blew into the back door....where I was standing.....not cool.


Then I moved inside and held a little photo shoot of my own....this piece is from my
"Moon and Stars" collection.


This pitcher was a gift from my Aunt Kim.  It is from our "everyday" Lenox "Butler" dish set....LOVE them....


This blue cake plate is one of a three piece set given to me by my Aunt Bobbi....it's oh so pretty.....so is the bracelet...I wore this to my bach party.  :)


These are our "Tiffany" toasting flutes from our wedding....I stored all of my wedding accessories in the Tiffany box. :)


My grandmother gave me this cameo that I love SO much.  This is the cake plate that matches the pitcher and our "everyday" dish set.  I love cake plates.....I have 7!




This is another piece from my "Moon and Stars" collection.  It was used to hold bananas. 




Every girl needs a set of pearls....




This is my "Joan Rivers" jewelry bag.  I ordered it from QVC and had to wait on the waiting list for 4 months in order to get it!  This is one of Joan's hottest items.....well I have it....and it's awesome! 
Thanks to my DH (dearest husband) for holding that up. :)



Thanks to my AWESOME and AMAZING husband for taking my perosnal portrait.  I am very passionate.....ok very bossy when it comes to pictures of me....Tim did a great job! :)


AND finally...while eating dinner in the family room tonight I got this AMAZING idea to move my office into the family room.  Tim was VERY excited because now he could have his very own "hobby room".  He builds model airplanes etc.  So after removing the legs from my desk and rearranging a few things...
TAH DAH!!!!!  My new, cozy, and oh so fabulous office!  :)  Love it!

Hope you had a fabulous day!  Stay warm!
