Great Britain is enjoying a rush of gold medals at the moment ( plus many silver and bronze ) ............. it's just getting embarrassing now !!!! haha

  2. Hello Jackie:
    A glorious Olympian tribute in your own inimitable and distinctive style. Nobody does [or we suspect wears] gold better than you do,dearest Jackie!! And, what a treasure chest of riches you offer to gild our day with today.....and we have the sun shining to match. Perhaps today is the day for glittered eyelashes, shiny metallic stilettos and swathes of gold lamé....or do you think that this is just a touch OTT for the local market?!!!!

    Happy day!!

  3. We have zero, Jacqueline. How many gold medals could you led us to display in our National Medal-Display Unit to make us feel better?

  4. When I see Team GB third in the medal table I marvel at how our little nation has achieved so much. Gold and tears of pride in equal amounts!

  7. Hello Jackie

    My gold fingers are having trouble typing this morning, too much glitz on the keyboard. I am batting for those eyelashes. Who needs blue suede shoes when they can have heels and fields of gold. Mise, I think we should change the lyrics to: "For twenty four years I've been living next door to karat".

  10. We are enjoying the Olympics so much - I think we might have a gold medal or two also...Truly all of the athletes have been fantastic! It's wonderful to see all of the London sights too in the coverage, but we are pretty sad that our trip has been cancelled this summer. Beautiful post, Jackie! xxoo

  19. Can't the olympics go on all year:) feels like it just started and I've missed so much. Darn job of mine. GB has done very well and rightly so you should be very proud. I think it's been the best Olympics in years. Ok the 1972 with Olga Korbet might have be my all time favorite when I was 12 I wanted to be like her. I couldn't do a back walk over to save my life now:)

    Oh love the gold shoes, but think doing a cartwheel with those on I might break something.

    hugs

  24. hi jackie ~

    this post is stunning in every way. the perfectly curated images leave me speechless.

    hope you and yours are well. how's that grandson of yours? walking by now? simply amazed how time passes by so quickly.

    believe it or not, my crumb began preschool a few weeks ago. i'm still slightly heartbroken that i let her go. she doesn't even discuss it.

    happy to stop by and catch up...always so lovely here.

    bisous,
    melissa
