From Table to Dining Out

I like to find different ways to use my accessories (I have a Christmas stocking that I use as a holiday purse), when I am not wearing them. This Italian shawl was being used as a runner on my dining room table, until I snatched it up and added it to my suitcase.

It works with this green stretch top, and EITHER the yellow glass beads, OR the dressier green necklace. Those stones remind me of juicy green grapes! (Keep picturing the white cotton skirt, white linen pants, or white capris on the bottom half.)

I have been kicking myself for months for not buying more clasps in Italy last year. I found a FABULOUS bead shop in Bologna, where the clasps cost me 3-6 Euro. Here they average about $30 each on up! I only bought a dozen. What was I thinking? They do NOT have a website, but I am practicing my Italian, and hope to be able to order some by phone!

This is a "daytime" fun necklace. I call it my "Candy Necklace". (Everything seems to go back to food with me!) I bought these African beads in a shop in Brevard, NC, when we attended the Slow Travel GTG. Here they are with a yellow Chico's tank, but they go with almost any of my solid color tops and black or white capris.

I love your beads! I am on a bracelet fix~ I have braclets to match everything.

Your Summersister:

OMG I love those yellow beads and the coral ones are great too. Maybe now that I am retired I should take up bead making. You'll have to show me how! The thicker necklace is a little too much for me but I can definitely visualize it on you.
Well I'll see you in 2 weeks in Firenze!!! Ciao sorella. I remember where you bought the shawl, I have the same in orange.Should I bring mine?
