I have lots of jewelry. Stored in lots of boxes. Each box has a theme. Sort of. This one's is rhinestones.
Most of this stuff comes from J. C. Penney's or Kohl's (big surprise there), but there's some Macy's and Cloud Nine thrown in too.
Back in the day I read a lot of Nancy Drew mysteries, some of which were about jewel theft. Fake jewels were inevitably used to imitate real ones, and they were always described as being made of the horrifically inferior "paste." Which honestly didn't sound all that bad to me. I rather thought I'd love a big old box of sparkling paste jewelry. Another thing about Nancy Drew books is that the villainesses were always described as being garishly dressed, as if bright lipstick and flashy prints somehow equalled moral turpitude. That never sat well with me.
Now for a bit of randomness. I may not be able to blog as regularly as usual during the next month because I'll be working on a large wholesale order that will require most of my attention. I'll be sure to blog about it around Christmas, though.
