Off the Cuff and Off the Hook...Not

As I mentioned in my previous post, we had a big family wedding this weekend (any family wedding on hubby's side will be big since he has nine siblings).  On Friday afternoon, I decided I really didn't have a necklace to wear with my dress so I started to sort through my jewelry supplies and brought a "few" possibilities out to the family room "work table" to play with.

As I was putting the finishing touches on "Smoky Wedding" - love the faceted smoky quartz focal - hubby commented to our son and girlfriend, "It's great that she makes all her own jewelry.  I never have to buy anything."

WHOAAAA!  Stop the train.  What was that????  Oh, yes, believe me, hubby knew what he had said has soon has "buy anything" had left his lips and a quick "Uh, no, not really"  followed almost at the same time as I said, "Oh, rea-a-a-ll-y-y??" giving him a knowing tilt of the head and look over the top of my glasses (I was a high school English teacher in my first life).  "You are so not off the hook, right? And, by the way, I'm wearing this and the bracelet I'm making with the triple-hooped diamond earrings you bought me."

The "Smoky Wedding" necklace (and bracelet) looked wonderful with the dress (as did the earrings), and hubby mentioned several times how great I looked....he also mentioned that I needed some real diamond stud earrings (mine are CZ) very soon.  One of the things I love so much about us - we communicate so well. :)
