Trees

What a week this has been! Work has been insanely busy, I’m so looking forward to Sunday! Also, our little apartment is a complete mess because we have a new computer. This of course is a wonderful thing but until we get the old one out we can’t use our kitchen table and there are electrical cords, manuals, batteries, plugs, everything from a torch to empty cd’s all over the place. I was laughing just the other night that our home looks some kind of bizarre command center with my boyfriends laptop on the living room floor, attached to a device that enables us to turn our old video camera recordings into dvds, the old PC in the corner with files being saved away for later use (the poor thing will be quite empty any time soon) and the shiny new iMac on the kitchen table playing music. I’ll be scared to open our next electrical bill! But it will all be worth it in the end, I’m sure.

Jewellery making has progressed little by little but I have’t had time to photograph many of them yet, not to mention updating my Flick album. I will, however share this next pair of pictures to celebrate the beauty of autumn. I made this simple bracelet recently and wanted to photograph it in my usual style, on a piece of vintage sheet music. My collection is very small so I couldn’t believe my luck, finding one entitled “Trees”!

I love the green shade of these glass beads! The colours later started reminding me of something and I soon found the image I was looking for, as I had many months ago come across it and downloaded it from Agence Eureca, where else! It’s a beautiful vintage perfume ad for Le Galion from 1957. Ad Vault has a lovely collection of Le Galion ads along with many other perfume goodies. I could spend all night flicking through those beauties…
