From frost to thunderstorms...we had a mist hanging over the blue blue sea and it inspired me to dig out those trusty sea inspired charms that I like so much. Blues, greens, turquoises, pale lavenders, and what the hey, throw in some pink as well, and you have all my fave colors. I made one of those dangly charm bracelets that get in your way when you wear it, but as my mother used to say: you have to suffer to be beautiful. I never bought into that though, and now I can see the fashion police coming, but Comfort is my key word when it comes to fashion. I happily supply someone else with the bling though... Some Swarovski clear crystals hold in the copper torch-fired enamel tubes. I have to buy some more beads to fire! Too many interests; I have artistic ADD. I'm also knitting a pair of wool socks, don't ask me why. We had 75 degrees here today... I've been following some fabric artist blogs and now I'm tempted to dig out my huge plastic bins with fabric. They are living in the farthest reaches of my closet where only spiders live. I used to be into fabric art big time, in one of my life times (we're talking 80s and 90s.) The era of the leg warmers, followed by moth-eaten leg warmers. They were comfy though. Speaking of the 80s, I could never get the right poof in my hair, no matter how much I permed it. Not enough there to work with. And I never had to wear shoulder pads since I'm graced with impressive shoulders, (I'm 5'10"). Remember those jackets with massive shoulder pads? Dynasty size pads... I used to cut them out and give them away. :) A strange decade... but I think of it fondly.
