|Here is the evidence…we are having winter here!!|
On Friday, many of us discussed which blogging events we choose to participate in and the criteria we use to select those events. Well, I have to say that when Teaching in Heels http://teachinginheels.blogspot.com/ posted an ACCESSORY SWAP, it was the word ACCESSORY which caught my eye!!
Marie partnered anyone interested with a swap buddy and I was blessed to be given Nicole at http://flipflopcombatboots.blogspot.com/ as my swappee…or is that swappette….Well, she is cute as can be! The minute you pull up her site you see a creative, beautiful, vivacious young lady. So, I knew that Forever 21 was the place to find selections she might like. You can check out her look on the front page of her site today.
Anticipation was a big part of the fun here….I stopped by the post box every day wondering what treasures I would find waiting for me. How would someone who does not know me select accessories for me? What about the age differences…would it affect the selections? Finally, the box arrived and a little bit of the Christmas-anxiety returned as I opened something that would be a complete surprise.
It was!! You see here an item I actually did not own up until now….an Infinity Scarf… and I really like the fun stripes and youthful feel to the scarf. Currently, San Antonio has weather to match the winter knit! She also sent a matching necklace, bracelet and earrings that I have not styled yet….but will! You see it here in the Big Snow of 2011 (sarcasm!).
