Hmmm. Did I Sound a Wee Bit Self-Rightous?

About returning the bracelet? Just so that you know that I do love me some nice stuff; I gotta tell you that while in Belgium I did buy myself a wicked handbag from this company in France:


It's one of the red ones *ahem* actually the biggest red one....and it was worth every penny. My friend Leo helped me pick it out, she said that it was right for me, and I trust her exquisite taste.

So there. Feet of clay....etc.

Off to Ikea!!

So....we took the bracelet back to Tiffanys. It was so gorgeous, but I felt a bit weird about it. I guess it come down to this; I so appreciate the thought and love that David put into the purchase, but I'm not comfortable owning something so expensive, just because it's branded "Tiffany".

I'd rather we use the money for something that we can enjoy together, and I'd rather wear jewelry made by artists that I know and admire.

So having said all that....the Tiffany store....holy shit. It's just fabulous, filled with incredible items, and I'd highly recommend it as a place to window shop and drool. I saw a ring with a 5 carat (!!) diamond, the price tag was.....wait for it.....


Maybe next year, LOL!!!

Definition of "Spoiled"

Um...that would be me.

Badly, seriously spoiled this Christmas by my beloved David and family and friends. I won't go into details, so as not to sound greedy, but a Tiffany bracelet....the Bose Wave II that I've been craving, (with the iPod dock; OH MY GOD!! My poor eardrums may not survive!), cool stuff from my kid from her trip to Turkey, lots of books, including the ElBulli book and piles of other wonderful gifts; ....I am a blessed and lucky and good karma'd and just plain happy girl.

Thanks everyone, it's too much.
