A bit of Spring color

A little bit of 1960s green and yellow and super cool sunglasses.

Beads I pick up at Craft Warehouse on sale for $1.50 a strand. Dyed mother of pearl beads and one gemstone strand. I have ideas for two designs for necklaces.
And, a silk Kimono I picked up at our local Goodwill for $3.99. I originally bought it for my daughter who loves butterflies, but I told her we may just have to share it, I love the color and the feel of the silk.
Well, that was my day yesterday and today. Although yesterday I found a place in town that did reflexology for $26 and decided to try them out. Wow, it was a 45 min massage starting with the face, neck shoulders and arms, very deep and invigorating. The family hails from Beijing, China and the atmosphere was very different than at a spa. I'll be back next week and taking my husband so he can enjoy it too.


  1. I too love that Kimono! I have never tried reflexology but have heard wonderful things about it. I wish we could incorporate more Eastern preventive care into Western medicine. Acupuncture has saved me on more than one occasion!

  2. I love that floral kimono! =)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my lovely ladies!
