Shiny Things...

There are just some things I need to admit I'm not going to have for another few... decades ...

Maybe the last one.  Maybe.  If I'm really good and Santa is feeling particularly charitable some time soon.

But that doesn't mean I can't appreciate how beautiful they are.  There's something about just looking at large, shiny objects that lifts the spirit.  Perhaps because the sun is also large and shiny.  Seriously though, ever since it came out, I've been lovin' on and lusting after Paloma Picasso's Marrakesh collection for Tiffany's.  The geometry of the design has something really graceful about it and I find myself drawn to it over and over again.  And so, I return to gaze longingly at them every once in a while, hoping that something like these (particularly the gold with lapis lazuli, in case anyone is paying attention) will come to be mine someday.

Dream big, that's what I say.
