Arm Party - Bloggers Do It Better

Although almost every day is an Arm Party for me, today I am participating in the Bloggers Do It Better Arm Party organized by Pretty, Shiny, Sparkly. Wow, are there a lot of artistic bloggers participating. I am have been having a lot of fun looking at everyones jewelry.

Today, one of our best local boutiques, Lucinda's, is having their annual 40% off all jewelry sale. I know I don't need any more jewelry, but I love to look (okay, so I bought some.)  I also bought a pair of mittens that have buffalo heads on them. They are hard to describe so I will have to take a picture of them. I know they are silly for a woman my age, but life is too short and I wanted them regardless.

First the Arm Party:

Top Bracelet Lucinda's
Watch: Michele
Swarovski Bracelet
Vintage Rock Bracelet
Stretch gold, turquoise bead Lucinda's
Two gold stone stretch bracelets - old
Lampwork Bead bracelet - Art fair

Necklaces: Vintage ebay
The man petroglyph figure on the leather cord is so cool.

Jacket: Chico's
Tank: Chico's
Jeggings: JMS Walmart
Sandals: Think! Julia
Airedale Terrier: Harry
 This is one of my favorite color combination:. turquoise, gold, black, and coral. I love anything that is vaguely Native American or tribal.  Petrogylphs and cave painting figures fascinate me. I even collect Anasaszi pottery sherds. I love holding a piece of history in my hand and think of the person who created it hundreds of years ago with very primitive tools.


  1. You *do* accessorize well, and you aren't kidding! These are gorgeous combinations. I love the vintage rock bracelet and wish I could find a twin. Hi Harry, missed you!

  2. Nice bracelets!

  3. I love the bracelets from Lucinda's and the old petroglyph from eBay is really interesting. Turquoise is a flattering color on you.

  4. Your bracelets are great. I'm seeing a lot of what i call hippie bracelets. I've got my eye out for some.
    I don't know why you deleted your first comment. It was absolutely fine.
    Thanks for taking the time to visit me!

  5. The colors chosen are truly magnificent, turquoise is my love too and the wonderful bracelets are the perfect casual touch. Love the whole outfit!

  6. I love that rainbow bead bracelet!

  7. You really do accessorize well, I adore your necklaces. Very Egyptian inspired, I'm drooling! Love your turquoise sandals too.

  8. I love how much color you incorporated into your arm party. I confess to not even thinking about that, I just went with mostly silver things.

  9. Wow! I guess it's not only an arm party but also a necklace party.haha. Love your collection of bracelets.
