Foiled Again!

Don't worry you pooperscoopers, check it:


Now, nothing looks interesting to me without foil. Like that hand... isn't it just asking for it?

Here's a micro mini batch:
The Describable Universe. Cuff and Ring Set. Recycled Rustic Biscuit Tin with Gold Gilding.
Much Transformation.

A set, no less.

Since it's a mini batch, I'll indulge in two pictures of each without worrying they might be redundant.

He Had Been in Heaven. Victorian Tribal Recycled Assemblage Rustic Found Object Choker with Gold Foil.

I think that's a binocular lens. And crap I forgot to wax the old fabric cord. I'll do it now and hope it doesn't look different enough to require new pictures. I'm afraid that without wax it would just crumble over time.

So, sales are always meh for me this time of year. So I'm going to have a special sale just for you guys my bestest invisible buddies.

Teach the People. Crystal Quartz Points and Kuchi Tribal Belly Dance Charms.
Teach the People.

20% discount, I'm thinking. Get some sales and celebrate that my period ended. As soon as I was finished writing about it- Pow! There it was. Man, I used to have a one male commenter named alek but I'm guessing all this period talk has scared him off.

This weekend I'll be in Wisconsin helping with the little goblins while my sister and her hubs move into a brand new house. We're all very excited about their big move and their posh new digs. I can't believe I just wrote "posh new digs." Who am I?

Sea So Deep. Rustic Victorian Tribal Assemblage earrings with Gold Gilding.

Point is, I won't be around. Hopefully, I'll come back to some sales. I don't know how long the coupon code will be active, though. Fair warning.

 Here's a picture of my dog I posted on the new Heartbeats forum thread.


My dog usually wouldn't be caught dead showing his belleh. He doesn't consider himself a submissive dog. Or, as my dad would put it, "You shouldn't penetrate his invisible core of dignity."
We often tease my dad because he can't say anything normal. (correction: "You shouldn't violate his invisible core of dignity." I knew It wasn't quite as creepy as 'penetrate.' And normal would be to say "He doesn't like showing belly." Or something.)

Meanwhile my mom: I tole da stori, dey all crack.
Me: They crapped? Mom, they crapped?
Mom: (cluelessly) Yah.
Dad: (joining in) They crapped their pants?
Mom: (happy at the reception her anecdote is getting) Yah! Dey totali crack.

Apparently mom worked with a lot of people suffering from incontinence. 
And with that... type in CRACK for the 20% off.  

Now here's some mail love I got:
 From Melinda of BeesOnPie, real horsehair and the sweetest canister. little legs and bits.
From Rosie of EclecticTea. I realize I should have photographed this while it was still intact, but I started taking it apart before it was out of the package. Already the two pieces at either end you see at the bottom here are part of those earrings above.
Oh, here it is from her blog. If you can even see it->



From Roberta.... who I seem to have lost any linkage to. I think you emailed me instead of convoing and y'all should know better than that!These stones really caught my eye. I've never seen anything quite like them and I love the chunky way they were faceted.

As usual, I feel totally flustered and actually embarrassed to receive gifts from out of the blue and never feel like 'thanks' is enough. Sometimes, the feeling of embarrassment will actually cause me to put off saying thanks to people! And then I can't remember who sent what and it becomes a ridiculous mess.

The actual quote about the dog should be
"you should not VIOLATE the invisible core of his dignity".
What's so abnormal in this statement?

Rosie Moceri said...

I'm glad you liked the pendant Fanci. You even made something from it already!!! *Grin* That's funny, I didn't even notice that I had sent you the same one from my blog.

Rosie Moceri said...

...and the foiling is awesome!

Ooohhhhh lots of new pretties.
I've never been to a crack sale before!
Hi fanci's Subconscious Dad. As I'm married to an engineer type guy, I see nothing abnormal in your statement. Sounds perfectly normal to me.
Hope you enjoy your weekend fanci!

Oh how you crack me up--get it? errr, moving on now. I love all your foiled pieces, and I'm not ashamed to say I'm jealous of all that cool stuff that arrived in your mailbox. But a sweet package arrived in mine today, with some sort of animal tooth, and some other strange things, so its all good.

Enjoy your time with your family.

That's why I like you so much, you have violated my invisible core of dignity.

I am gasping over the metal work on those Kuchi drops!! All thick and square and tiny...gaaaaahhhhhh. Also the horsehair and the chrysophase nuggets, but especially the horsehair! I'm so jellie!

Lucie said...

I'm so jealous with what the mail man delivered you!!! Like Sparrow I admire the metal work of these kuchi...
You made me laugh a lot with the reason to put up sales, the end of your period! that's the best reason ever!

fanci, deeply sorry to disappoint you but i is not a man, so the pm talk dont put me off at all, i did consider very briefly keeping up appearances in pants but what the hell.
love following your blog though, and i dont comment cos it mostly gets said by the time i get there and im a 1 finger typer.
about the foiling, totally agree - it all seems kinda naked without it and its obsessive, though once i did roller over about 5 kilometers of paper cos i just loved the feel and texture of the roller id found
take care

From Roberta- sorry I emailed you instead of a convo. I'm still a little old fashioned in my thinking.
I got the irregular yellow Chyrsoprase at the Bead Trust booth at the Gem and Mineral show, and aw shucks, with you in mind. So I'm especially pleased you like them. They had a lot of kinds of stone beads with that irregular cut.
Hey, and on this private/public scale of you giving, it just feels natural to want to give back.
