The shimmer and warmth of gold! Gold-filled faceted beads on silk cord, cinched at the back with a coconut button.

My smallest madder plant, and a new air plant: tillandsia ionantha guatemala. The colorful tips are fun!
Have a great weekend. Cop and I are flying down to San Diego for a quick vacation. B)

Little crafting has been done because the lovely spring weather makes me want to be outside hiking and gardening. I have, however, recently acquired a Rolleicord VA and am slowly going through the first roll.

One day I may be able to sew my own clothes, but in the meantime, I am happy to wear very talented designers work. The dress above is from Anna Allen. It felt pretty blasphemous, but I had to do it – I added extra elastic to the back to accommodate my tiny bust :) No shame in a tiny bust, but clothing should fit well, no? 
That last blossom there smelled almost as good as my Miltonia orchid.
