Best Ever.

Another reason why….

And the award for best accessory ever goes to:
Caitlin of Moxie and Oliver!

I fell in love with this koi and sakura pattern from Moxie and Oliver as soon as I saw it on one of the fabulous guitar straps in Caitlin’s shop…
I had to have something…

So, for my birthday present this year, I asked the fabulous Miss Caitlin to conjure up a pouch to hold my Dexcom CGMS… What she made was this gorgeous accessory which is a slightly size modified version of her belt bags. This pouch has a sturdy snapping loop on the back, so I can attach it to a belt loop (I don’t always wear a belt, she does make them so they attach to a belt as well)…. This is much more secure for me as the clip on the case that came with the Dexcom is a slippery little bugger and I was constantly worried about one day hearing that horrible splash or feeling an empty place where the Dexcom should have been perched… Now I need not fear that event, and I can focus on other, happier things (like plotting what else I could order with this pattern… A girl can dream, right?)

The pattern is gorgeous, the quality is superb…The leather is thick and sturdy but it is not heavy….Experience tells me that, like my Poppy purse from Moxie and Oliver, this will break in perfectly….

And, even when wearing just jeans and a t-shirt for a run to the store, I feel a little extra fabulous and I don’t feel like a crazed gadget freak, as I can carry either my cgms or my glucose meter stuff in the pouch, and slip the other ‘betes stuff into pockets… I feel much more human with this fabulous pack adorning my waist, than I do with all of my tubes, buttons, and screens dangling around…

I swear, this gorgeous pouch of fabulousness makes me stand taller and feel fabulous, even on the rougher days. I can’t wait for the day when there is a cure, and I don’t need these gadgets, then I’ll tuck a few dollars and my ID into this baby and hit the town!

Thank you Caitlin! Thanks for rockin’ so hard!

Now go visit Moxie and Oliver for more amazing, handcrafted, leather artistry.

Candy!

Cufflinks! Not really edible…Well, unless you are a vintage lucite and sterling silver chomping creature, I guess…

Anyway… New pieces being added over the next few days and a few old favorites revisited….

Hope everyone is well!
Giant hugs!

p.s. MRI came back “unchanged” since my last one- phew….good news… Of course that just means that the docs may have only been looking at my old MRI… But today I am feeling a little better and only when I move a certain way does it really kick up… So hopefully tomorrow I will feel even better….

Love, Norman Love.

Oh Norman Love…Why do you and your mad confection laboratory have to be on the way home from hubby’s office?

and the strawberries taste like strawberries!

You think of the most lovely combinations that fill me with childlike joy and giddiness and grown-up decadence all at the same time… You are a mad genius. Your confection creating crew is beyond fabulous.

Willy Wonka can truly retire now….

Oh and for those of you that aren’t familiar with Mr. Love and his crew and their genius creations and think “eh- I’ll just give Godiva because everyone knows the name” think again… Norman Love is the genius behind the “g” collection….

and

(from Godiva’s press section):
Always an innovator in the industry, Love is the former Executive Pastry Chef for Ritz Carlton Hotels. His passion for sweets has landed him on Chocolatier Magazine’s Top 10 Pastry Chef’s list and USA Today’s Top 10 Artisan Chocolatier’s list.

These are the best.

Yummy.
Exquisite.
Perfect.
