Oh no!
There's no denying that you've put on weight when even your watch starts to pinch... Until now I have prided myself on having slender wrists, but no more. It seems that they, along with the rest of me, have assumed elephantine proportions.
So... to draw the eyes away from my spreading middle and podgy wrists I need to find some distractions...

Robots Rule Brooch by Putting on the Charms
There's nothing like a bit of distraction to draw the eye away from unseemly areas - and this cute little robot brooch is a great distaction. He's not available on the website just yet - but you can buy him from my Folksy Shop. Just click on the image to be taken straight there.
I WILL be adding a brooches section to my website shortly...

OPI Burlesque Little Teasers Mini Pack
Confession is good for the soul and I have to admit that I do not look like Dita Von Teese (did I ever?), but that's no reason why I can't indulge in a little bit of burlesque in the privacy of my own home, is it? I'm not talking little knickers and nipple tassels here, but a nice nail varnish can work wonders... especially when you've got short, stubby fingers...

Mermaid & the Octopus by Classic Becca
Maybe, like me, you think it's time to stop looking in the mirror, and to start looking at your walls instead. If they are as bare and unloved as mine are, it's time to do something about it. This gorgeous canvas by Classic Becca is a good place to start.

Nude by Fire
Perhaps, instead of moaning, it's time to remind ourselves that curves ARE really rather lovely.

Heart Mirrors Claire Seely Glass Design
And we should really start looking in mirrors and falling in love with ourselves all over again.  Fat wrists aside, things aren't really that bad, are they?
