My So Charmed Life

So Charmed

Give it away, give it away, give it away now…


Here’s another give-away guys, and please feel free to sing along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ song while you review the rules, regulations, and photos herein.

If you hurry, you can be the 9 MILLIONTH person to view this video! I like Mr. Keidis’ sparkly lipgloss, don’t you?

So, this is a sweet romantic necklace from the personal collection of the artist (ie, my ENDLESS jewelry box), but it is time to find it a new home. Features a darling vintage love-knot charm (and I can’t find any more of these anywhere), creamy Czech glass pearl rosary beads, vintage cherry red Czech glass star bead, and tiniest brass skeleton key. The chain used is vintage and so delicate I frankly can’t figure out how I was able to work with it at all!

I’m going to leave the narrative for this one up to the new owner’s sense of poetry, memory, and meaning. How to enter? Leave a comment here answering the following question: If you could invite anyone living or dead to dinner, who would it be and why?

Entries will not be judged for content, anything goes. Deadline is Friday, May 18th, 6pm at which time my lovely daughter Molly will randomly draw a name from a hat. Have fun, good luck, and thanks for playing! Winner will be contacted and necklace will ship out next week.

    I used to say I’d invite Hitler so I could knock him off. Now I’m not sure I could actually kill a person. I’m not as fierce as I was back in the day. I might invite Amelia Earhart, because that shit is driving me bonkers. I’d like to ask Carl Jung so I can pester him about his Red Book, but I know it would just irritate him. OK, final answer: I’d invite Gandhi because I know he’d have some ideas on how to use nonviolence to enact real social change in this country. Whew.

    I’d invite Orson Welles, although I’d probably be too intimidated to say much. But just listening would be fine. The hours of interviews with him by Bogdanovich that I have on tape are probably some of the most riveting conversations (and monologues) ever and I’d be able to exhaust my film fix pretty thoroughly over dinner – which, knowing Orson, would be plentiful and lengthy!

    Edith Head, for the obvious reasons

    right now i’m totally drooling over the knitwear designs of veera valimaki ( ) . would love to sit down for dins with this uber-talented woman and chat about knitting, yarn, designing, fiber and the like.

    am about to cast on for her smooshy, warm Color Affection shawl (just in time for the humid DC summer).

    Love all these answers! Ghandi, Orson Wells, Edith Head and this fabulous knitwear designer (Bethy, LOVE!)… thanks everyone for the replies!

    umm, would I have to do the cooking? Sorry, that part of the question got me distracted!
    Let’s see, I’m also rather shy, not good at
    social conversation, so really famous or important people would be too intimidating…tho it would be interesting to meet Schiaperelli -but I would probably choose my grandmother, so I could chat with her adult to adult. Then we could go thru her closet…..ok, I think I’m answering more of a time travel question. hehe

    Cindy… LOL re: cooking. No, you can send for takeout! As I would! And you know, when I cooked up this question (which is the extent of my cooking skills) I had the same thought about family and in particular my grandmother. I was torn between all the famous people… and my Grandma Mollye for whom Molly is named. I would love for them to meet! So, I hear you…

    Oh wow, I’m so glad I came upon this!
    Anais Nin is the first dinner guest to come to mind, although I think I’d prefer a whole big crazy dinner party with a bunch of people who wouldn’t get along, just to see what would happen.
