Old And New

The two eggs with the darkest backgrounds were a wedding present from my uncle the priest. He gave us three actually but don’t get me started. The other four are modern creations done by my BFF by marriage. That is to say the person who married my BFF.

It’s hard to pick a favorite. But here’s something you should know about the beige and white egg: the shell was dyed and then shallowly cut away exposing the undyed surface and resulting in this design. Pretty cool.

The display plate is Stangl’s Golden Blossom and that abstract design is a flowering perennial plant known as lupine which grows in NJ. I’m thinking of selling of most of my Stangl to finance my vintage china habit but every time I look at even a single piece, I now I’ll never be able to do it.

In other Easter news, there’s a butter lamb a’comin’.

Did I Not Call It?

Right on schedule, Chelsea Clinton is pregnant. How conveeeeeenient! Vote wise, this is better than a dead Hawaiian grandmother.

…………………………………………………….

UPDATE: Maybe I didn’t call it.  I had some notes written in November for a post predicting this but I never published it. The draft is titled Mrs. Mezvinsky’s Baby. Here are the notes:

HRC run for prez

only thing missing is grandmotherhood

chelsea pregnant in 2014 then miscarrage

real baby in 2015. elderly mother. prenatal care.

Taking back healthcare. Out with Obamacare. In with  “Chelsea’s Law”.

 

Listenin’ and Lookin’

Apologies all around. I complain that there are not any blogs left to read and yet here I am neglecting my own blog. I haven’t been able to get anything down here because I am dealing with the worst haircut ever. That’s not true. I’m just busy . Really busy. In the meantime, here are 4 ladies who give us things to think over. The first two are from Our Department of Forget What I Said Before Pay Attention To What I’m Saying Now

  1. Jenny McCarthy isn’t really against vaccinations.

2.Wendy Davis isn’t really familiar with this abortion of which you speak.

3. Next, we have two lady power brokers from the O Squad. Valerie Jarret drops by Hollywood to chit chat about inserting pro-Obamacare messages into scripts. You can tell this is a friendly, casual sort of visit – take it or leave it, its up to you! – because ValJar has chosen to dress as if she just popped off the tour bus of Hollywood Stars homes.

I suppose she’s showing off her fabulously toned arms?

Although she did take the time to find matching pumps. Shorts and high-heels. It’s a look, I guess. One thing I do like about this woman is that she always has the same hairdo no matter what the occasion.  America needs something it can depend on nowadays and that thing is ValJar’s hair helmet.

4. Poor little Kathleen Sibelius has left HHS. Now well never know if she was planning an information campaign about the physical danger of having a larger than normal head.

Sad Kathy

I’ve seen her in person and she is a very petite gal with an enormous head. As you can see, even  some over enthusiastic eyebrow plucking on one side can be enough to tip the balance.
