Crystal Clear

First of all, thank you *so much* to everyone who supported me on my "rainy day" post. It really helped. The sun finally came out, so to speak. :)

Also, happy Father's Day everyone! I'm currently on a hunt to find my dad an iPod by the end of the day... eep! Craigslist.com is my friend right now.

Anyway, I was feeling nonsensical and very girly last night so I snapped these pictures. I seem to have an awful lot of crystal lying around...

PS- on a sadder note, Charlie the mouse passed away. We're not sure what happened, but he rests in peace in a little mousey grave now.

  17. I love the pictures and I'm so sorry about Charlie The Mouse! :( He is resting in peace now.


  18. Gorgeous pictures, beautiful, amazing, and oh-so-elegant. Its good to feel girly every once in a while, haha. When I feel girly I hop into a dress, put in Justin Bieber, and take pictures of me in my dress in the mirror...I'm odd that way, haha(: Taking pictures of crystal is a better way to express girliness. I think I will imitate you when the mood strikes again. Haha.(:

    Love you!(and seriously...the pictures are good)

  19. WOW! Those are amazing. I LOVE Crystals...so beautiful and blingy:)
