High on my list of 'Things To Do Before I Die" (although lower than 'Snog Colin Firth But Only If He's Dressed as Darcy From Pride & Prejudice mmmmmm Darcy From Pride & Prejudice') is my wish to hold a tarantula. I love spiders, and amongst my group of friends I'm the go-to girl for spider removal. Which is fine because in return I have plenty of friends I can call on when I'm attacked by marauding slugs. Which happens. More than you'd think.
Anyway, I appreciate that not all of you will share my love, so if spiders make you shudder, or scream, or run away with your arms flailing over your head, you might not want to continue reading. There's a whole internet out there, plenty of which doesn't contain spiders so off you go, I won't be offended. Look I've even found you an article about Colin Firth being voted the best Darcy - there's lot of pictures, and even some writing. No need to thank me, it was my pleasure - *drool*.
So, those of you still with me are not going to freak out, right?
Are you sure?
Still a chance to go look at Colin Firth.
Alrighty then, here it is:
Wow - I totally want this hanging around my neck. Mostly because it's pretty, and partly because it would freak my spider-fearing friends out. Mean? Me? Yeah, I am a bit!
The Black Widow Necklace is US$39.00 in sterling silver, or US$344.00 in 14k gold (good thing I prefer silver jewellery isn't it?), from Badali Jewelry.
There, that wasn't so scary was it?
Hey! Come back! I didn't mean to scare you really. I'm sorry.
