When I wrote the title of this post, something about it seemed familiar. I finally realized I was thinking of a line in The Berenstains’ B Book: “beautiful baboon blowing bubbles.” Please note that that is NOT a comment on the appearance of any of my gorgeous blogging clients. However, it might be a sign that I should write a children’s book. Of course, if I wrote a children’s book, it would have to be something like “Everybody Curses” or “What to Expect When You’re a Goddamn Baby” or “Pippi Longstocking Will Beat Your Ass, Eloise, so Step Off, Bitch.”
Anyway, as stated in the title, beautiful bloggers have been buying baubles. Meet my latest satisfied customer! Here is Oh Lady E enjoying her silver Borgia Ring. I like how she’s mixing it in with her other rings. I love a ring on every finger.
I should take this opportunity to say that I am really honored whenever any of you fashionable bloggers purchase Wendy Brandes Jewelry. I know you choose me partly because I threaten you with the Beatdown Ring. Still, there are so many fashion items competing for your hard-earned money, some of them created by equally menacing designers. I mean, hello! Karl Lagerfeld! I bet those fingerless gloves can deliver a stinging slap. But I digress. Further thanks for being supportive/scared into submission go out to the following gorgeous bloggers:
My fellow Ossie-Clark fanatic Sharon;
Alice Olive, whose Flickr account defied my effort to save the beautiful photo she took of her Boleyn Necklace; SkyBluePink, who has been too shy to share a picture of her silver Squirrel Necklace; and the extremely generous Deja Pseu. DP, aka Susan, won the Diana Necklace in the auction I held to raise money for blogger NieNie, who was badly burned in a plane crash.
Susan also won immortality thanks to my auction. I’m going to design and name a piece after her. Susan, don’t despair! I’m working on it. Really. Earrings with a green stone, for sure.
I will also mention Gamutrice of The Gamut and Stef M of Sideshow by the Seashore who were gorgeous friends and gorgeous clients before they turned into gorgeous bloggers. I know it’s hard to believe I’ve been away from a computer long enough to make friends in the real world, but it’s true.
I hope I haven’t left anyone out of this list, because I would hate to hurt anyone’s feelings. If I have left you out, it was unintentional on my part and clearly the work of the Devil. Blame him. (An aside to non-bloggers: I couldn’t possibly attempt a list of all my gorgeous non-blogging clients because even I have to sleep once in a while. But I would love it if you would do like Melissa and send me photos of you wearing your Wendy Brandes Jewelry, so I could write a post about you.)
For any blogger who wishes to earn the title of “gorgeous client” for her/himself, I recommend you take a look at my rapidly expanding silver collection. Pick something out and DON’T put it in your shopping bag. Instead, email me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com. As I’ve said, I’m having a trunk show on November 19. If you are an out-of-town blogger, I will give you the trunk show price, but you gotta ask for it.
