Here's a photo-heavy post filled with lovely things to look at as I'm feeling a bit challenged for words at the moment.
Recently purchased baubles. The Sacred Heart bracelet had a D&G vibe to it, and with Autumn coming soon I like to pile on the velvet, gold, and rhinestones.
By the back of this piece, I suspect it is a fur clip-anyone have another theory? A hat perhaps?
Is this a hat box? I couldn't decide, but I bought it anyway as it reminded me a bit of my Nantucket Basket.
Brown is an underrepresented colour in my earrings.
Here's some of my compacts, though I couldn't locate my favourite a mid-50's Stratton with a floral enamel top. The black Stratton is from the 70's. The reddish compact is modern-from Sephora. The Guerlain in the upper right is 90's, The other two compacts are both vintage.
Originally the conmpact held small brushes on top...
And modular eye shadow and rouge in the bottom.
Here's my little red camera in the reflection.
This tourist purse is so tiny it barely holds a phone and a wallet, but it was too cute to leave.
What's baking you ask? Coconut washboards...
...and buttermilk oatmeal raisin. From here on out it is all breads and cakes. We have 7 days left to pull this thing off. Well, Danny does. I'm sitting back and watching he doesn't burn the house down.
You've seen everything here before in one outfit or another, but you probably haven't seen my travel mug (on the chair) that transports my tea so I don't need to drink inferior tea when away from home. Perhaps it is just Nebraska, but lukewarm water thrown over a tea bag isn't my idea of a cup of tea. What do these people have against boiling water? Even the coffee is served warm rather than hot. Anyway, best ten dollars I've spent in some time.
