Now For Some Bling!

Remember when I got back from Vegas I was talking about adding some crystals to a denim jacket? Well, I finally got my act together this afternoon and this is the result.

I didn't want to get too carried away, so just did the collar, pockets, cuffs and along the yoke front and back.

I know the darker denim is supposed to be much more flattering, but I have had this jacket for ages and it's hardly ever been worn. Maybe this year it will finally come out of the closet!

Thanks for your suggestions about the engraving of my iPod. I managed to waste the best part of two days looking up song lyrics and just when I thought I knew what I wanted, I discovered Apple's generosity with their free engraving didn't extend to the number of letters I wanted.

Dorothy suggested "It's My Life, It's Now or Never..." which actually I had thought of myself since I am a huge Bon Jovi fan. Then Sandra suggested "I want to rock your gypsy soul, Just like way back in the days of old..." I really liked this one too, but it was too long. Van Morrison's music brings back a lot of good memories. I can never listen to Brown Eyed Girl without thinking about a great summer spent at a girlfriend's cottage on Lake of Bays.

I finally decided on "Let Your Soul & Spirit Fly, Into the Mystic". As Sandra so aptly pointed out, it really won't matter what I have engraved on it as it will probably always be, or should be, in a case anyway. She must be taking lessons from my Mother on how to dampen my mood.

Now that I have solved that earth shattering dilemma, I can move on to bigger and better things.

You smartie ... love the jacket.

Next time we're together you have to shown me how an iPod works. I'm still in the dark ages.
