Flickr Mondays-Hues of Orange

So happy the sun is out today…even if it is for a short time.

Thought these 1960′s/1970′s National Geographic scans of photographs were so beautiful…and that they all tied together so well with the hint of oranges throughout.

More photos here.

Etsy Schmetsy: Apple Announcement

Where I’m from, Apple announcements and iPhone preorders selling out in 20 hours are the stuff workdays are made of. But what about the other sort, the apples of which one a day is said to keep the doctor away?

Elva Fields

Picture 2

How rad are these necklaces from Elva Fields? I love so many of them. Unfortunately since they are all one of a kind, almost all of them have been bought by other lucky fashionistas. To make them even more awesome, a portion of each online purchase is donated to charity.
