October may be here, but there’s nothing scary about planning ahead for when you move on to the “great beyond”. It just takes a little organization and honest communication with the people you love and trust most. Check out some of my tips in this Vegas Voice article by Judy Polumbaum!

Thriftscore

This past month I've felt that I was in a virtual time capsule.  And this past month I've also felt really old.  As I've walked through my Las Vegas thriftstores and came across things from my childhood or gasp, my 80's teen years.  While seeing such items send chills and tingles through me (the good kind), I can't help but wonder what it is that draws me to certain items.  Sometimes I see things that I spied in a friend's older sister's room.  And other times, it's a piece of jewelry that I imagined a model wearing while she hung out with Duran Duran on The Wild Boys tour.

Be that as it may, below are some January thriftstore finds that I fell in love with and brought home, and others I left for another to get that tingling sensation of a good thiftscore!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Polly Weinstein, The Jeweler's Daughter.  An amazing multi-talented jewelry designer, sculptor and artist with a Las Vegas pedigree to boot!  If you don't know her or her designs, I urge you to check out her studio and treat yourself to one of her jewelry pieces.  Here's a link so you can get to know her. http://www.thejewelersdaughter.com/about

MaryBeth and Polly just get it!!! You know?!?  I had to pick up a little birthday gift for myself and this silver Nevada ring should bring me just enough love & luck for 2016!  Now I can't stop thinking of what else can I add to my personal collection from The Jeweler's Daughter!
