Shiny Things

My friend Kathy Love once said she thought she was a sea gull in a former life because she is instantly attracted to anything that glitters. I totally agree. I have lots of sparkly, shiny, glittery hair things, clothes, makeup, and knick-knacks. You can take the littlest, most boring rock and cover it with some glue and glitter and I'll love it.

I guess it's a good thing I have all girls because we go through A LOT of glitter-glue, sparkles, and sequins. I wonder if it's just a girl thing or if it's just a MY girl thing? If the store Claires is anything to go by, I'm going to assume most girls like things that sparkle and shine.

Maybe I was a Vegas showgirl in a former life?

What about you? Does glitter catch your eye or could you care less?? And why?

    absolutely. And it causes terrible conflict--I was brought up to believe shiny=tacky but my spirit cries out for glitter.

    HEY, sorry about leaving my trash in your InvisaSUV. I realized after you were kind enough to give me a ride that I'd left McD trash for you to clean up. I'm just like one of your girls.

    I'm sort of on the fence. I'm not a huge girly-girl so only have limited glittery things. But I do collect knick knacks and stuff - but glitter just isn't my bag I guess. But then....wait till you see me at Faery Court this summer - I'll be way over my lifetime quota of

    You know me, Evil Twin -- if it sparkles, I'll covet it. *g*

    I've just learned how to make some really cool crystal bracelets. If you're nice to me, I might just make you one... ;)

    Hmm -- I'm not a big glitter girl, but every once in awhile, something sparkly catches my eye and I must have it! However, I do enjoy really good jewelry.

    I was never actually a glittery girl. But I used to be the type that wouldn't even think of confronting the world without makeup, hair, and clothes perfect.

    Then I spent a good twelve years working in factories-the last of which was a six year stint in an almost all male plant-and I changed somehow. (Well, I attribute some of that to A) having a harried worker turn and knock a full cup of coffee on a brand new pink outfit B) having a worker on a towmotor turn his head not knowing I was there and hawking up a big chewing tobacco lugie on another decent outfit, and C) Working in environments where grease literally dripped from the ceilings. ICK!!!!!

    I think the girly girl was beat out of me. LOL

    Ari, you know I need to change back somehow. The tshirts and sweats have GOT to go!

    I like glittery stuff, but it has to mean something. I have 3 sons, so I only have one girly room in my house and it's my office/den/parlor where I have all my pretties. I collect crystal, and love Murano sculptures and that cut crystal that starts with an S that I couldn't begin to remember how to spell!!!
