VS Support and a Pretty Pendant

Wow! I so enjoyed everyone's comments on my Vignette Syndrome post. I love how many of you referred to it as "VS" and owned-up to being "afflicted." We are the many! Isn't it so amazing and fun to find people with common interests from all over? I truly treasure the friendships I am making with my blogging pals.

Last week to celebrate a sale at my Etsy shop, I decided to treat myself and custom-order a pendant from Leslie at Glitter & Bliss.

Isn't it so pretty? Because finding anything with my name on it has been an almost futile lifelong quest, I decided it should say Elyse. I love the floral background. It arrived within days and came wrapped with a striped ribbon and sweet note from Leslie.


I've been working on some new things for my Etsy shop and the materials looked so pretty and the pendant just fit right in, and ... I had to take a pic. I BLAME VS!

Yes, my name is Connie and I'm a vignette-aholic.....ooops, 'scuse me, wrong group. But hubs is forever asking why are you photographing my dinner, the stove pots cooking chili, my place at the table, the refrigerator contents, the table tops? Why are you standing on that ladder with the camera aimed at XXXXXXX (fill in the blank)? I just shrug and say "PHOTOSHOOT"! He understands that now. But he's still wondering why I'm taking the camera to the stores we visit when shopping. PHOTOSHOOT!! He sure is confused sometimes! Hah.....
Smooches,
Connie

Is that how you spell your name? I've been spelling it "elsie" for 17 years!

Elyse said...

grrrrrr and hardy har har ...

"fran moff" knows that one of my biggest pet peaves in life is people calling me "elsie" and not elyse (prounounced eh-lease)
