How do relationships and technology fit together?

Ok, so I blog and everyone reading this blogs as well so I'm not against technology at all, but I think it's really interesting to see the kind of culture we live in now where technology makes it so easy to share things that probably don't need to be displayed for the whole world to see.

I found this link somewhere (Weddingbee I think) STFU Marrieds and I don't necessarily like the point of the website degrading the gact that married people are affectionate towards each other, but some of the things on there are pretty ridiculous. And some things that don't need to be shared...

Just because you have the ability to share details of your relationship, is it really necessary? Some of the posting on there are kind of sweet and some are kind of ridiculous, but I kind of feel like if you are wanting your partner to be seeing these, wouldn't it be just as easy to write them a private note about how much you love them? Or is it about showing the world and all your friends just how in love you are? I guess I can't be quite a hypocrite, I have written on my F's wall just to tell him I love him, but not to the extent some of these people are.

Sorry for this little weird venty thing, I'm just pondering relationships with the invent of all this new technology...

Vintage and modern, this is my dilemma

I can't remember where I found this link, but I have been sitting, drooling, and coveting the jewelery on Doyle and Doyle. It is a vintage jewelry store where you can shop online, and I must confess... I. Love. Vintage. I don't wear it often, but I have always loved how it looked. Thanks to a friend I met up with yesterday, I am now aware of some amazing vintage stores close by that I will be hitting up for sure in my quest for wedding jems. But anywho. Check out these beauts!

Yum yum yum.

Browsing these has made me realize what my ultimate problem is... (ok a little dramatic haha). But, I love vintage and I also love modern, so my problem is how do I combine these in a way that doesn't look random and ridiculous? This is something I'm going to have to think about... but until I figure it out, I'm going to continue to lust after these incredibly expensive jewelry.

Why hello there

Sorry I've been absent, I had wonderful friends visiting from England and then it was my birthday and Easter, so I've been busy!

I've been hard at work on F's bday present (his birthday is Thursday... we're exactly 2 weeks apart, well, almost), but I don't think I'm going to have time to finish it! It was going to be a quilt made out of old tee-shirts of ours. So now I have to think of something else, but I usually plan way ahead so I'm out of my league here.

In other news, I have found the inspiration for the cufflinks for the guys thanks to Suffering Love. I think I'll make them because if I can find the cufflink backings, it will be so easy to do.

My F and his boys are geeks to the extreme, so these are perfect for them!

I am...

...the one holding the wine glass :)

It was good to volunteer my efforts for a good friend's wedding. I feel refreshed, recharged, and just a little more liberated.
