Studio Friday- Sparkle/Shine or Shimmer

This week's topic for Studio Friday asked us for things in our space that Sparkle/Shine or Shimmer. I had a wee bit of difficulty with this since I work mostly in feltable wool yarns and cotton textiles. Not really a glitter girl in my knitting and quilting. Odd though, since I am quite the sparkley girl...sparkley earrings, sparkley shoes, sparkley barrettes, oh I could go on.

My glass beads have a nice bit of sparkle. And my brand new Addi Turbos are quite shiny. Sadly, the photo does not do their shininess justice (but the future entrelac bag...yummy. )


And just as I was dispairing my lack of dramatic bling in my studio, these little darlings caught my eye. Walking home from work, I passed a store front that always catches my attention for their fab, uber-curant eyewear. There hanging in the window were these sunglasses. A bit excessive, yes, but I just love them! Hhhmmm, when the income tax return comes, if they are still there they are mine.
