Red, White and Blue. Happy 4th!

Work has been exceedingly busy lately, so I was certainly looking forward to a nice long holiday weekend. Time to kick back and relax.

We started our celebrations a tad early on July 3rd, and allowed the trollings to stay up late to watch fireworks. Tonight however, we let off a few fireworks earlier in the day and put the trollings to bed at their usual time. It was funny to hear them going, "Pop! Pop!" every time they heard a firework go off, until they finally fell asleep.

I started wearing my bracelet a day early as well. I kept it simple, going with the old Red, White and Blue. The deep rich colors of the beads really appeal to me. Yesterday, I paired it with a red blouse and today, with my flag navy T-shirt. Playing around with beads to match outfits is definitely part of the fun of having these charm bracelets.

Do you coordinate your bracelets with your outfits?

Mother's Day Bangle

For Mother's Day this year, I knew I wanted to wear my lovely Pandora Circle of Love Bangle that I received last year. Initially I thought I would try and add my Dragon and Tiger dangles to represent my trollings, but 2 dangles on a bangle, just doesn't work for me.

Violas and Pansies

Hot on the heels of Earth day comes Arbor Day. In the past at work, we have gotten pine tree seedlings. This year, we got violas and pansies. Not trees, but I think it is still in the spirit of Arbor Day.

Jelly Bean Bracelet

Today is Earth Day and National Jelly Bean Day. At work we celebrated this day by handing out jelly beans and having a lucky drawing for reusable lunch bags, LED bulbs and a Smart Power Strip (automatically shuts off when not in use).

Don't worry the cups containing the jelly beans are meant to be reused for future treats, to reduce packaging waste.

Easter Bracelet

I made this bracelet as a reminder of His sacrifice.

Black for His death and the Red for His blood, that ran from His brow from his crown of thorns and where the nails pierced His hands.

My First Faerybeads

A couple of days ago, I got my very first Faerybeads. A Faerybead Leopard Lock and a beautiful Findë bracelet chain. I thought it would be fun to take a picture of the contents of my package as shown below.

St. Patrick's Day Bracelet

Irish Blessing
May the Irish hills caress you,
May her lakes and rivers bless you,
May the luck of the Irish enfold you,
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
