It was a very good day
Yesterday Marianne and I shopped ALL DAY, initially fortified by a delicious Just Joe breakfast (complete with mimosas!) and resuscitated with a typically incredible Chez Mark dinner (and several rousing hands of Quiddler). We have such good men!!
First we went to the powwow, where I found a necklace and two (2!) rings. The chain on the necklace is kind of beat up, so I may do something a bit more attractive with it at some point, but I like the spiral links.
This ring isn't nearly as fuzzy in real life...
and I thought I'd show this one in its natural setting.
Then we went to the Houston Bead Society show at the Firehouse in the Heights:
I have NO idea what I'm going to do with those teeny tiny bugle beads. They are the smallest beadies I've ever seen. But they were just too gorgeous to pass up.
Oh, the glittery goodness of it all.... 'Twas a superlative day indeed.
