cranberry beads

I absent-mindedly grabbed this big beaded necklace in the checkout line at a thrift store. The old ladies that work there, bless their hearts, are so sweet, but efficient, they are not. This outfit was from Haircut Day a couple weeks ago. Stopped in Loehman's afterward and my heart went all aflutter with the marvelous deals to be had. Forgot how much I loved that place. Will share the spoils of said trip as soon as the weather turns.

What a delightful necklace. Hope it doesn't dangle around too much. It looks like a dangler to me. Or is this just a problem I encounter with jewellery?

What a great statement necklace!
Those little old thrift store ladies always make me laugh, sometimes they pull things out and insist I buy them.

Can't wait to see your new pieces!

Love the necklace and thrift store employees. The are the best. That peach shortbread recipe is really good and really easy. I hope you get a chance to use up all of those peaches. That sounds like a problem I would love to have!

drollgirl said...

love that necklace! and i like your new 'do!

hope you have a fab weekend!

p.s. thrift store employees are almost as slow at checking out customers as RITE AID clerks!!!

Kimberellie said...

That necklace is FANTASTIC! This outfit is so perfectly casual and chic...and then...the shoes! So perfect.

And yes, the lines at thrift stores! Indeed, the elderly ladies at my favorite are the same way...but such deals...so! Oh, and I love love your hair!!
