Living in Luxury

It is far too easy to indulge one's senses when presented with desserts like this. Grilled poundcake topped with real sweetened whip cream and pineapple rum sauce. Scrumptious. I also had my first fried green tomatoes which were crispy and zingy. I had seconds. Every meal has been superb, including the afternoon snacks. Our dining room is also where the art is hanging and here are two pieces I particularly like by Gerrie Congdon.

And this unusual (to say the least) piece is by Barbara Backman, It is titled Lines, Threads, Defenses #1.

 No hugging the artwork please.
I have a super good bunch of gals for my second class, Design and Improvisation. And NO ELECTRICAL problems. What more could a fusing teacher want? The gals are all very creative and fearless. Pictures will follow.

    When we buy something, we are always [B][URL=]pandora beads[/URL][/B] thinking that it had better never become devaluated. The one piece that never loses [U][B]tiffany[/U][/B] its value is always what people want most. Sometimes, the one [B]pandora jewelry[/B] piece would raise its price [U][B]tiffany[/U][/B] with the rise of money. Here is recommended the pieces that [B]pandora jewelry[/B] would always be treasured - Tiffany. The watches, bags, bracelets, necklaces. There will always be a classical piece in all the categories [U]pandora[/U] of Tiffany.

    First comes to the tank watches which [B][URL=]tiffany co[/URL][/B] are the favorite of a lot of people around the world. Of course, just like other [B]tiffany rings[/B] kinds of watches, Tiffany watches have both man and woman [U][B]pandora beads[/U][/B] style. No matter what kind of style [U]tiffany jewelry[/U] or color it is, the tank watch always has its classical features. The tank watch is called one [U][B]pandora bracelet[/U][/B] of the very important objects in the world.

    The watches have the [B]pandora necklaces[/B] unique shape and "favored by all" watch bands. The mixture shape of geometry [B][URL=]tiffanyjewelry[/URL][/B] and art gives the tank watch its lasting value. Women with the [U]tiffany jewelry[/U] watches look more professional and modern [U]tiffany[/U] while men with the watch seem more [U]pandora jewelry[/U] approachable.

    Besides the Tiffany bracelets and bags, something [U]pandora bracelets[/U] else from Tiffany is also among the piece to be treasured, from rings to bracelets, from necklaces to [B]tiffany jewelry[/B] brooches. Some of them might be relatively cheap while some [U][B]pandora jewellery[/U][/B] of them might be expensive. However, all of them are worth treasuring since [U][B]tiffany pendants[/U][/B] they would never devaluate as a classical [B]pandora bracelets[/B] piece.
