Elvis Presley - Blue Christmas

Saw this on youtube and had to post it. This is just fun and reminds me of my dad who is a huge Elvis fan. <3

Brenda Lee - Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

Who hasn't grown up to this song? It's a part of my chldhood as I'm sure it is many others. It's kinda sad that my youngest sister doesn't really appreciate the classic Christmas music, but someday I'll get her to like it. :P

Another great song I wanted to share this holiday season.

Let's start off the season~!

I believe I sing this song at least a hundred times everyone christmas and watch the most several times too.

Coffee Brown Dahlia Ring

With Christmas just around the corner, this cute little ring makes me think of sitting by the fireplace and drinking a nice cappucino.

Made in a coffee brown, this cute dahlia cobochon is set on a silver adjustable ring. This item will come to you already in a gift box. The flower symbolism associated with the dahlia is dignity, elegance, forever thine.

Cabochon's should not come off unless you're really trying to or hit it against something very hard.

One Piece

Not sure if anyone else following this blog reads manga or not, so most can just ignore this post. lol One Piece has become one of my favorite series and as you can tel by the splash page is very...eccentric. Recently the manga went on a four week break on a huge cliffhanger and a supposed time skip in the story of two years. This friday chapter 597 should be out and I can't wait to see what the new character designs will be as well as the new arc that will be starting.

Also is it just me or does it seem like every major series has a time skip in it now adays?

Thanks to MarieEliseDesigns for adding my black lilly earrings. You can see the rest of this fun treasury here!

Sym-bionic Titan

Anyone else watching this show? I love it so far, with this and the new scooby doo series it looks like cartoon network is finally making good shows again. Who knows who actually had the bright idea to make live action shows and to cancel toonami... Not to mention it's by Genndy Tartakovsky so it's bound to only get better. ( Samurai Jack, Power Puff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, etc.)

An exciting hybrid of high school drama and giant robot battles, Sym-Bionic Titan follows the adventures of three beings from the planet Galaluna: Princess Illana, her bodyguard Lance, and their Robot Buddy Octus. Escaping from their home from the advance of the powerful General Modula, they crash-land in Sherman, Illinois and pose as high school students. However, Modula's forces have followed in pursuit and now they must defend their new home from his many monsters with their mechs.

This blue rose ring is made in a pretty icy blue and set on an adjutable filigree base, this ring is great for someone who wants to wear just a little something to give their outfit that extra flare!

♥ In some cultures, blue roses traditionally signify a mystery, or attaining the impossible, or never ending quest for the impossible. They are believed to be able to grant the owner youth or grant wishes.

Olive Green Vintage Earrings

Olive green faceted lucite is hand wrapped in silver and hangs from a pair of large silver plated kidney ear wires. Lucite is vintage and made to look like real stones. They measure 2 3/4" long.

*this is a one of a kind item and I will not have another like it*


*skip please if you don't want to listen to my frustration*

I'm beginning to really reconsider teaching as a career option. The classes I'm taking now for it are going to be the death of me and have sucked any fun and love out of what I had thought I would finally go into. It also doesn't help that one of the teacher's is so ridiculously difficult that I believe she's either sadistic or insane or a little bit of both. Not to mention I've been on the verge of tears for a few hours now because of the stress.
Like really why should I write thirty book reviews when you're only going to grade 10 of them and the books have to be from a narrow list of titles you came up with or from our book? It isn't as if we can't tell the difference, or you can't tell us, between fantasy and historical fiction. Why should I go 2 hours out of my way to do observations? Do you think we won't do it in the first place, that we're all that incompetent?

Here's the two biggest laying in a bag of stuffed animals that went later into the building out front.
The other three, who are all oddly colored. Must come from their mother. lol The gray calico is dad's, the other calico is mine ( along with the two in the other picture), and my sister called dibs on the black/white kitten. I need to try to think of names for them. ^^

Stone Stretch Bracelet

Try saying that five times fast...
I always get to my Greek-Renaisannce Lit class super early so while I had the time I made this in the car. Took me about an hour or so, since this was my first ever attempt at a bacelet like this, but I think it turned out pretty good.

This stone bracelet is made from smooth red and orange stones that remind me of an open fire. Seperated by ornate silver spacers, this bracelet is stretchable. Measures 3 1/2" across and 7" round.

Pumpkin Time

This is one of two pumpkins I carved last year. Picture was taking just after I finished it and I think it turned out really well. First time I actually used a template that I didn't make. Which reminds me that I need to think of some new designs for this year before I run out of time. lol

Black Rose Necklace

This necklace is made with a large black rose cabochon mounted on a piece of elegnat filgree and hangs from a silver chain that end with two jet black swarovski crystals.

Chain measures 22" long and pendant measures 1 1/2" tall and 1 3/4" long.

My sister's love this piece since it's perfect for an evening out or to wear just to go out to school or around town. :)

Anyone else excited about this movie? I grew up on stories of the triple crown and horses like Secretariat from my dad. They're the only sporting events I really get into. I even went to the Lexington Horse park for my sixteenth birthday and got to see Secretariat and other famous race horses racing silks.

Here's Secretariat's famous Belmont race.
