Yes, Virginia, winter DOES happen in So Cal:
Okay, I know this is t-shirt weather for some of you (who are no doubt laughing hysterically right now), but this kind of thing doesn't happen too often around here so I thought it worthy of being memorialized.
I made more jewelry last night:
I know, I know, seriously crapoid pictures, but it was too dark (and COLD!) outside to take pics when I got home so I had to take them indoors. These earrings are really much prettier in person - the flash kind of "washed out" the teal color and made it appear a lot lighter.
These beads were freebies that came with an Etsy order, but I really like them. Not only are they my favorite color, but they are dusted with speckles of clear frit that makes them look like they are "iced over." I added some chain and Swaros and came up with a perfect New Year's Eve pair of dramatic earrings. And yes, they're long. I don't care. I think long earrings are awesome! I plan to be buried in a pair of 5 inchers that I'm saving just for the occasion.
The kid is playing a "Who" in a production of "The Grinch" tonight and then afterwards, we are all going to Souplantation for dinner.
The excitement never ends...
