Just a quickie for now to post pics of last night's fun and the Saint's bling (fortunately, Kelly, I did not have to resort to a logo paper plate dangling from a string of Mardi Gras beads. Dodged a bullet there...) Later today (after the grocery shopping and the gym and a little bit of laundry) is the awards ceremony and pictures of my new and favorite snack food. I know, right...2 in 1 day...can I do it? Well y'all do it to me all the time. So absofreakinlutely. Stay tuned.
The finished product...an antique gold fleur-de-lis pendant, topped with a cluster of golden glass pearls (this was done on the cheap and the fly so...no, not Swarovski pearls) and then alternating glass pearls and jet black fire polished crystal spheres. They are wire-wrapped and attached to an antique gold chain. The second string of glass pearls is strung on tiger-tail. The piece is finished off with an antique gold lobster claw clap and a simple bow of black grosgrain ribbon.
Can you see the ribbon? It's back there. Never send an IT guy to do a jewelry designer's job.
Who dat? Me and the masked Saints crusader. Geaux team!
Neal's been drinking bourbon. I've been taking shots named after foods...the peanut butter and jelly shot, the chocolate cake shot...very difficult to decide which I like better. My special thanks to our host, Chris, and his fully stocked bar. Hey Chris: Liquor Barn called and they want their inventory back.
More to come...just later. Y'know...the glory of Maunday.
