simple beauty

Simple beauty. It's those things in life that many would not find particularly beautiful. But most of the time, a photographer's definition of beauty is not the norm.

I had been dying to take a photo of these earrings, and finally got around to it the other day. I adore the contrast of the sparkling jewelery with the smooth wood on our window seat.

Speaking of adoration- I love colored pencils. And {this post} at Dis Fromage yesterday featured some unique colored pencils that, in my opinion, are fantastic... she linked to an online boutique where you can purchase more like them. Patinastores.com is the place... be sure to check out all the other little pretties in the shop!
