A fair skinned, dark haired person like me is a "winter". I find more than a little irony in this - because I don't like winter. We don't have that much real winter in Texas - but it does happen (right now I'm more concerned about needing an ark - we had 14" of rain last week). I don't like being cold; I don't like having to bundle up like the Michelin Man to go outside; and as I tell anyone who asks why I like summer better - you don't have to shovel heat to get down the driveway.

Why the rant about winter? Well, Saturday night we "fell back" to standard time. Earlier this year, I wrote about springing forward to Daylight Savings Time - which made me happy. The onset of shorter, colder days makes me grumpy, but at it least gives me a reason to write about watches again. This time, it's my "Page" tank watch from Coach. It's not news that I like Coach accessories - including their jewelry and watches - and last fall, they offered a special edition of this watch with a black face and fall-toned floral print.
I fell in love and snapped up mine right away because I knew they would go fast. After spending the summer in my jewelry drawer, it has now reappeared - the colors are perfect, especially with my predictable wardrobe of dark cardigans, white tees and khakis.
While I'm not a fan of "matching" jewelry, I feel a little bit like I've won the lottery when I find favorite pieces that work well together.
My "Modern Rocks" oxidized pendant from Metalicious is a perfect example. The rectangular shape of the "emerald cut" complements the black metal tank case. Even if no one else notices, I like it when the pieces of jewelry I wear echo each other.
Well, no time to waste (even if we did get that hour back from last spring) - I've started my fabrication classes - and there's places to go and things to do.
Until next time.
