- Bling Bling Baby

When I first saw this...
I resisted the serious urge to bust out my wallet.  I wore it around the store for almost 10 minutes but eventually put it back because even though I kind of have a major thing for peacocks, who really needs a peacock bracelet?

I said the same thing about this turtle ring.
She tugged at my heart strings a bit more - reminding me of all the pet turtles we had growing up: Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, Howard Huge, little Madeline...but no.  I put her back.

This guy really got me.  I was dead set on taking him home.
But no.  I left the store without any sparkly animals.  Because I couldn't choose just one and I didn't think I needed all three.  This was last Friday.  Every day since then I have thought about these pieces of jewelry.  I've planned outfits around them.  I've convinced myself that I need them.  

So I went back to the store today and bought them.  All of them.

Plus this.
Because I think sparkly tarantulas have just enough whimsy to be incredibly hot around my wrist.

I also found some bling in non-animal form that I felt I couldn't live without.
Apparently sparkle can be a slippery slope.
