Golden Sparkles on a gray day

Today was a cold, overcast day and I spent most of it cleaning house and I definitely was not wearing this outfit for cleaning. Every Friday night my husband and I go to a local restaurant, The Copper Oven, to eat Fried Chicken. It has become our regular Friday night dinner. The dogs love it too as they get a good part of my dinner in theirs every Friday.  They are so excited when I walk in the door with the baggies full of goodies. Barking and jumping around like silly dogs. I think they enjoy the dinner more than we do.

None of the pictures came out very good today.  This one looks like I have arrow feathers coming out my arm, but it was about the best of the ones we took, so here it is:
Jacket: Chico's
Top: Chico's
Jeans: FDJ
Shoes: Naot

The jacket is a black background with dark gold metallic threads and has dark gold ornaments sewn on the bodice.

I thought I would also show you what my nail polish looks like today. I put Chanel Peridot polish over the top of the gold OPI polish. The Peridot polish changes from gold to green depending on how the light hits it.

Several of you asked about my Indian picture that shows up all of my indoor photos. I purchased it without a frame at a flea market for $5.00. I thought the colors were striking and the subject fit right into my decor. I had it framed, which cost way more than the picture. The painting is signed Margie Jones, 1982.  I know nothing else about it, but I do enjoy seeing it every day. Would any of you be interested in seeing some of my other art of and/or created by Native Americans? I have been collecting for quite a while and have some unique pieces--nothing really valuable except to me.


  1. To answer you question yes it is the softest curly wool and I love it so much.......But more importantly Annie, get your gun! You do have arrows in your back.
    I love you jacket. Bling and sparkle sometimes makes it all worth it.
    Can't wait to see your link up and hope you have a good weekend!

  2. The gold in the jacket really lights up your face. We have to be careful about giving our dogs people food, sometimes upsets their tummies.

  3. yes, Debbi, you have been shot! I really like your jacket and your nails - they look beautifully done. I would like to see more of your Native American art!

  4. Your nails are just beautiful. That is a great holiday color!

  5. I love first nations art and have a few pieces and baskets myself.
    I would love to see your collection.

  6. I posted on my Candybarsfromgod.blogspot blog some favorite things from my home, and I also have an Indian head portrait from the 80s. It belonged to my mom and was given to her by an artist friend when we lived in Albuquerque. I love it! It's one of the things that draws me to your style, is your southwest influence. I'm so feelin' that nail polish! Your hands look beautiful! Hugs! ~Serene

  7. I love to hear that you are interested in art--any art is good! Would loe to see more of your collections~
    Love that jacket~what a way to make fried chicken special!

  8. I love your jacket, and I must try you nail polish, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    You look glorious.
    Are we seeing you in skirts this Cxstmas???hehehheheLOL

  9. I've been intrigued by that Chanel nail polish for awhile, because I've only seen it in the bottle -- not on actual nails! Does it look very different if applied by itself (not over the gold color)? I love it! I also love your Friday Fried Chicken tradition. No better occasion for a sparkly jacket.

  10. Love your nails Debbie, very cool
    Your top is lovely


  11. I would definitely be interested in seeing more of your native american pieces! I'm loving your nails and that jacket! Definitely a great look for going out on a friday night!

  12. Love your jacket - and the matching nails is just too perfect. You've got the right coloring to pull off gold tones.

    I would love to see more of your Native American art. Even though my bum is lily white, my mother's father's parents were both 100% Native American Indian. I love the art! Thanks for the story behind your painting.
