I put these shoes on and asked B what he thought and he responded with his usual "they're reaaal nice, sweetheart," laced with the usual hint of mockery that makes me want to pop him, even though he and I both know his input has precious little to no effect upon my shoe decisions. Yes, these are the games that we play.
B bought this antique bracelet from the 1940s for me when we were in New Mexico. It's supposed to be a Christmas present, but I'm not very good at waiting for the respective holiday when the gift is already in my hot little hands. B's mom is an avid collector of Native American jewelry, so she researched the artist's stamp on the bracelet and was able to identify it as a Bell Trading Post piece. Click the link to read a bit of history, but I recommend searching for more Bell's pieces online, because they're all quite beautiful.
Hanako66 of Through the Looking Glass had the greatest idea to ask me and a few other DC bloggers some questions about how we would introduce a newcomer to DC. Here are my answers and I encourage you to check out the other bloggers she featured, as well, because they all recommended great places to eat and unique things to do in DC.
And thank you so much Nearly Stylish for the award!
