Momma needs this...


and this...


a little bit of this...


a side of this...


a few of these... (in green and blue of course)




and if you're still feeling generous, this...

Ooooh and there's also this...



What can I say? I have my girly moments and sometimes ya just wanna feel purty. Jewellry helps. Plus I have a thing for slightly swarthy mediterranean types. Marco Cantini is talented, Italian and yummy. And he's a friend of Italian-Canadian Chef/TV Hottie David Rocco.

I'n not much for wearing jewelry myself but even I can see that those are quite lovely.

Tanya said...

Ooooh! Pretty!!! We have similar tastes, Karen.

I'd never heard of David Rocco, he is goegeous!

I like the first two pieces of jewelry the best. The barb wire necklace is so cool. This is a Canadian designer?

Karen said...

Nope, he's Italian (sigh) from Florence - I saw him on an episode of David's show, Dolce Vita (they're friends). Thinking he was kinda yummy (Rocco's too pretty for my tastes), I googled him and discovered he's a jewellry designer (bigger sigh!). Now, in order to get the jewellry I want, I only have to come up with about 1000 euros (~$2500 CDN). No problem, right? Perhaps I should start up a "Buy Karen BLING" fund.



David is Canadian but spends about 1/2 his time in Italy.

BTW, I just did a double take. We watch David Rocco's show over here, but they must be ooooold, cos he looks way dorkier in the episodes we've seen.

Well, I'm not actually expecting anyone to buy me anything but I am going to try and get myself the ring for my birthday in January so I need to stop buying so many books. Egads. Just wanted to share the love with the blogging world!

We just started Season III of Dolce Vita here. The episode I was referring to is "Rocco's Boot Camp" which is the first episode of the new season. His approach to food and cooking is fantastic.

*(asterisk) - actually, getting gifts usually makes me very uncomfortable (birthdays/christmas are exceptions). I LOVE giving gifts, especially when people aren't expecting it. It makes me happy to make others happy. I tend not to buy "stuff" for myself. I love to eat out and go to movies, but I don't usually treat myself to the usual "girlie" things like clothes, jewelry, shoes, etc. A former boyfriend bought me a watch and earrings for no reason and my reaction, although surprised and thankful for the gift was still one of discomfort. It always seemed, when I was younger, that people would give me something because they wanted soemthing else in return and I've always associated the two. I think it may have led to the demise of our relationship. Go figure - I have issues.

Oops! I like both giving and receiving, but because I treat myself all year round I can be difficult to buy for.

Lovely jewelry - good taste!

Yeh, I've always had fantasies of going to Greece, painting from a hilltop, drinking some ouzo, and dancing with Zorba the Greek.
