Good morning, darlings!
I’m still working on preparing my Vegas photos for you (first post to come soon!!) but in the meantime, we’ve had fun learning about modern dress clips from Jubilee Jones and talking about my new favorite book all about diamonds!
Speaking of which – my giveaway for Brilliance and Fire ends today. 5 of you will win a free copy, but you can’t win if you haven’t entered. Don’t forget to enter by 3 pm today, because that’s when I’m picking my winners!
What I’m reading:
Fingersmith by Sarah Waters. I’ve been hearing good things about this book for ages and I’m finally getting around to seeing what all the fuss is about. I’m only a little ways in, but it’s really good already.
If I Only Had a Duke by Lenora Bell. This book is pretty delightful. I love a sassy heroine.
I loved this article in the NYT! In a Time of Stress, Jewelry Becomes Armor.
The True Story Behind Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and Her Mixed-Up Files. Who else loves this book??
That Thing Where You Feel Forced To Choose Either Silver Or Gold For Life.
A Golden Girls Version of Clue Is Coming Out & I Am Here for It. But is the theme song going to be “Thank you for murdering a friend”? Only time will tell.
The Lavish Work of One of the Last Gilders of the Versailles Court: because it’s almost jewelry-related, and super cool.
