I have a problem. I am easily...very easily...distracted by Shiny Things.
And today was a day for distraction.
The entire day had started badly. I had found out a homework assignment in Algebra was late, the fabric stores, (yes plural) were completely sold out of their extra-wide double-fold black bias tape, and then Joann's computer crashed and rejected all my cards.
Now, I'm not one to resort to retail therapy when I'm stressed, but dammit, after all of that, I wanted to shop.
There's a fabulous place here in the DFW area called Sam Moon. They're an accessory paradise, and have amazing costume jewelry. So, I made the jaunt up the ever obnoxious I-35W to this little slice of costumer heaven, and $50 later, came home with this -
One very lovely necklace, two bracelets, two pairs of earrings, and 24 twist in hair jewels. I could have bought three times as much, but I was trying to be good. ^^; All of this is destined to be paired with the red contouche and other 18thC gowns. The entire time I was walking through the store, I kept hearing the chorus to 'I want Candy' in my head, so just call me Marie. Now, to go and get some homework done...
