It’s not often that I encounter other Margarets out in the world. Or Margarets who only ever go by Margaret, not Maggie, or Meg or any of the other nicknames that I can not abide. When I do, they are usually part of AARP set. Which suits me fine because I tend to share a lot of common interests with the ladies of that age: needlepoint, soup, knitting, dollhouses, early bedtime. Using outdated phrases like razzmatazz, and shenanigans.
But today the other Margaret I spoke with divulged her special interest- bangles!! She apparently owns a big collection. And I thought “Woh!” because I was very impressed by this chic lady. I wish I had asked to take a picture of her wrist but I was too shy. So you get more of the same, my wrist. Plus my hand with some notes on it, maybe even including the word hand.
Today’s bangles are the posthumous birthday gift bangle from my dad, the Elsa Peretti vine cuff also from my dad, and my brand new knot cuff.
Here’s a secret, sometimes I forget to wash my face before going to bed. And sometimes, I forget to wash my face and then I forget to take of my bracelets. Guess what happened last night? I even fell asleep before my episode of Supernatural. Then today started with an early morning of hauling stuff to a boutique event and setting up shop. So here I am, in yesterday’s jewelry. 🙀
But guess what else? This boutique event is at SF Towers, a posh retirement community and one of the other vendors is hiho silver! Soooooo like a girl on a walk of shame stopping to buy panties at the drugstore, I bought a new bracelet! Isn’t it pretty? It’s the delicate little silver knot cuff, $55, which I find exceptionally reasonable, recently imported from Taxco Mexico.
I spent lunch talking with Victoria, the owner of hiho silver (intentionally all lowercase) and I think hers may be my new favorite shop. I’m sending my honey there for Christmas. And hopefully you all will check the shop out next time you’re in the market for a little something silver. Hiho!
Leroy, cover yourself! What I mean is, cover yourself in something other than the Mexican silver bracelets my dad gave me.
Isn’t Leroy basically exactly like Rose posing for Leonardo diCaprio in that James Cameron romantic comedy, Titanic?
…where I will live Blue, Blue
Today we have little metal bangle with circles that I traded a pair of PJs for at a boutique event (I go to these things for my business), Lions skinny bangle, Chevaux Apparat skinny, Caleche skinny white, the Cape Cod watch, and a flip flop bracelet.
