Folk Inspired / Take Two




     Color does something to the brain......it must be primal.  As humans, from the beginning of time, we must have decorated our bodies with color.  I think blogging is like gathering around the campfire, each of us telling our own stories with our words and our clothes.  As women it's in our nature to share our treasures with each other.  









     This is the bracelet I'm wearing in the photos.  I thought it looked so lovely photographed as a sculptural object, almost like a little crown!

  15. That jacket is amazing! I agree about what you said about wearing color, I always feel so much happier when I wear bright colors- it's the weirdest thing. Maybe it's a placebo effect but hey I'll take it. :)
