I thought this was timely, for Lent and all. The photo, not the bracelet. Of course, any cross is always timely for Lent, but I took the photo for a different kind of synchronicity.
Recently, I hit the Dracut High Performing Arts Boosters Craft fair . It was great to see a bunch of friends and familiar faces, and try to support the program. It's shopping for a cause and I'm on board!
And because it's a craft fair, it's only "fair" that I treat myself, just something wee is all. So I had fun looking around, talking to crafters and sniffing, touching, and tasting. Two cool days in a row, the day before was a an overdue Lunch with Miss S. (Not to be confused with my other friend Miss S, who really is a "Miss S.", where the first Miss S. is not really an S. at all. Yeah, I've confused myself here.
We had a nice conversation, and delish food at LA. We spoke of the usual, mutual friends, our kids, karate - naturally, and faith.I won't bore with details, the faith topic was interesting. And good.
Back to the craft fair, I was wandering around and then I found this bracelet, nearly hidden under some other groupings of baubles. It was exactly the kind of thing I like in jewelry. A nice mix of minimalism and flash. Yeah, I know, maybe above is a teeny more BeDazzled than Mies van der Rohe. But who's quibbling.
The cool thing was, as I saw this It felt like a fate moment. (Or perhaps a 2 x 4 moment?). The bracelet - as they say - spoke to me. (C'mon, they say it in all the decorating magazines). I do believe that certain purchases are really meant to be for whatever reason. And an added bonus, the price was right. Kidding aside, it perfect timing.
Must trust me on this.
