I've been seeing a lot of "trade-bead" jewelry on Pinterest, made with cute, zig-zaggy beads (which are about as trend-tastic as I plan to get here in The Year of the Chevron). So, with my sis in town, I rooted out an old, forgotten envelope of these geometric beauties, purchased at a Ren Faire years ago (guilty as charged). They can also be found here on Etsy.
Donning our madrigal gowns, Dignity intact, we strung together a couple of simple slider necklaces the morning before she left for home.

I had a visit from my sweet sister at the end of June for a weekend filled with thrifting, pedicures, and general sisterly fun, capped off with an evening of night races at Churchill Downs. Here we are, all fancy in our dresses.

I've been thinking about how memories group themselves out of order sometimes, composing a history that ends up feeling truer than anything a timeline could reflect... So, M & I just returned from eight lovely days in Montreal and Quebec City with many moments and sights to share. But instead of ordering our photos into a daily diary, I've grouped them loosely by color: red, blue, black, white, green, and -today- pink. It's been interesting, though, to discover that certain colors are composed almost entirely of one day. (I guess some days are just more blue than others.)
Duly prefaced, please enjoy a few moments looking through my rose-colored glasses.
