(lingerie, scent, and silk and not necessarily in that order!)
I have not been able to put my finger on how or why certain styles of earrings impart femininity they just do.
Lovely daughter made me a pair of crystal drops in the 1990's which I have and wear when I want to sparkle.
These Citrine beauties were a recent gift for my birthday.
I love them, and they have more value to me because she made them herself.
Large in size
dainty in style
shaded softly in a warm honey tone.
Aren't they pretty?
I can never remember if this wee feline bronze
is made by Walter Bosse
or by Baller.
It's vintage and was purchased years ago
from a thrift shop.
I had no idea they were "collectible" at the time
I just liked the face and form.
Behind the scenes
a handmade amber art glass bauble.
Blowing glass is an amazing skill
I watched a documentary on Dale Chihuly on PBS
it's a craft not for the faint of heart.
If you have the opportunity to view it
I highly recommend it.
Summer days are getting shorter
and I can feel there's a nip in the air
the garden is getting ready for her long winter slumber
and some of the leaves have started to turn.
If you love flowers and gardens you must go and meet Belinda
she has talent when it comes to growing flowers and creating lush bouquets
she also makes and sells jewelry!
Go over and see her
you'll be impressed.
Alliums have been growing throughout the season
they are now reverently tilting and bowing their heads
as they wither
saying a fond farewell to summer.
Wonderful and reliable performers
in a floral arrangement
as a filler
to add interest
rubbing shoulders with their next of kin.
they are a lacy parasol of purple
oh to be a ladybug
in the dappled shade
from the hot summer sun.
I'll be trading in the parasol for an umbrella before you know it.
