Pajama Sunday

It feels like I've been running around non-stop for the past two months or so, and I'm exhausted. So today, with no plans for the first time in as long as I can remember, I stayed in my pajamas until about 3 in the afternoon.

My day went thus: I woke up when Mr HD had to get up to feed the cats, at which point I promptly fell right back to sleep. I woke up a second time hours later, and had munchkins and a mug of hot chocolate. I then plopped myself on the couch for a couple of blissful hours reading and watching bad TV, from where I didn't budge until hunger pangs forced me to scrounge around for some lunch (seriously, whoever thought that Little Black Book was a good idea ought to never work in the movie industry again. And what is up with Brittany Murphy? She looks like a heroin addict on crack).

I then bestirred myself to make this necklace.

Being in my pajamas must be good for my creative juices, though, because I think this turned out well. It is approximately 16" long, with three different kinds of sterling silver chain, adorned with one focal Swarovski crystal roundelle that is 12mm in size, and seven smaller crystals hanging off a second chain. The crystals really sparkle in the light, making this whole piece come alive.

It's a good thing I have a three-day weekend, because the fridge is empty, the house is a mess, and the laundry has piled up to the point where Mr HD was forced to do a load himself (this is typically my chore) - but hey, I'm in my pajamas, please don't disturb!

I like this necklace! I was just telling a girlfriend yesterday that I wish I could layer necklaces. When I do, I look like a gypsy! But see, you layer it for me and I'd look great!

dude -- really really like this. I have a problem of getting sucked into these marathons of some sort of competition reality shows and then poof a whole day gone. It happens at least once a weekend.

HMM, I know - I was so tempted to go the whole day in the pj's, but I was afraid my unkempt appearance and unwashed hair might prompt Mr HD to think about divorce proceedings.

M2A, if you like the layered look, I am thinking of doing maybe some custom orders where you can pick out your stones and chains, and I can fashion them into a design like this.

Meri, it's so hard not to budge from the couch when you have marathons on tv, especially if they're your favorite show. Last time I got sucked into a marathon of "My Boys". It was addicting!
