Wow, I can’t believe it’s the last day of the year already. Where does the time go? I really wanted to finish my beaded military tank by now, but the truth is, the past month has been busy for me. I have been busy meeting with friends and just having fun!
Yesterday, I spent the afternoon shopping in downtown Boston with a friend, Jessica, who is visiting from Italy, and everywhere we went, there were sequins! I love sequins – they are so festive, especially for this time of year – but I don’t love everything that is sequined… It has to be done tastefully. We walked into Club Monaco where we both noticed the sequins above. The design uses 3 colours of sequins – black, slate-blue, and silver- in various sizes. These sequins were sewn to a beautiful little fold-over clutch handbag with 2 zipper pockets. The tag on the inside says ‘Made in India’. The little bag was 50%-off, so I just had to have it!
Yes, another handbag has been added to my collection, but more importantly, I think this will remind me of spending an afternoon with a friend. Every year that goes by, I come to value the meaning of friendship more and more. Whether they are new friends, old friends, or blog friends who I have not yet met, I truly appreciate them and all that they have done for me. So, this New Year’s Eve, I plan to celebrate friendship. Every New Year, we get another chance to strengthen old friendships as well as begin new ones. We also get another chance to celebrate with sequins! So, wear something sparkly tonight, and have a happy 2010!! 🙂
