October days

Here are some photos taken over the past couple weeks.
Sparkly nails, sparkly jewels. 
Crystallized Bracelet and a Tiny Charm Bangle sample.
The array on my dresser after de-jeweling one evening.
A Twinkle Pearl Creme Necklace -- available by special order.
Coffee break and mini donuts with a friend.
Adding Sale items to the Shop.
The resident at emerg drew this.  It's a diagram explaining the parts of my brain that are causing the vertigo.  I think he meant parts of my ear, not brain... He let me keep this masterpiece.
Rain booties bought on eBay.  Bit big... may have to pass them on...
Spent a day café and restaurant hopping with a talented friend.  We were working hard on some new MoonRox related things.
A visit to one of my favourite shops on Queen.  I wish I could spoil myself and buy up armloads of pretty Parisian things in there.
Vegetarian Thanksgiving feast.  We never do the traditional Thanksgiving in my family.  This year we had a veg craving and went to Fresh, and were pleasantly surprised that they offered 40% off to patrons on Thanksgiving Sunday.  So nice!
Thanksgiving Day was spent lounging in the sun with my Sis and W. in High Park...
Followed by a birthday dinner for Aunt L.  Polish feast.  Yum.
Been enjoying mixing some MoonRox new and old with some other pieces I have collected!
From left to right are:  Shine Bracelet (from a few years back), a chain maille find, Crystallized Bracelet, a blingy bracelet from my friends at House of Moda and the Entwined Stalactite Bracelet.
Here's another dresser top shot.  In the foreground are the Stunning Ring (available by special order) and the Scissors from the series of Handy Necklaces.  In the little container are some of my favourite rings and earrings.  Mixed in are a resin and sterling silver ring by Cinelli & Maillet, a House of Moda infinity ring, a AMT "diamond" ring, a ring inherited from my Grandmother, Fancy Pearl Drop Earrings (available by special order) and a crystal encrusted coug.
Dining out after running errands...
Baklava galore.  Some may have come home with us.
A. and I ventured around Bloor St. for LOULOU Magazine's Shop 'Til You Drop. 
The shops were abuzz!  
'Twas a fun evening.  And got me excited about MoonRox being featured in this month's LOULOU Deals all over again!  Don't forget to take advantage!
Made some new pieces that will debut at the One of a Kind Show this November.  These are the scraps... sometimes discards are pretty too.
Sorted the nail polish stash.
Selected these...
and went nuts and did this.
Explored unfamiliar neighbourhoods.
Enjoyed Fall foliage.
Not to be super cheesy, but nature amazes me all the time.  The colours of this leaf pile are all incredible.
Capped off the weekend with a celebration for R.'s birthday with friends.

The past couple weeks have been out of the ordinary.  I have not felt 100% since my vertigo incident so I have not been able to work as much as I would have liked.  I've tried to pretend as if everything was fine and go about my day... but I have had moments of dizziness and have been downright exhausted.  Plus, I have totally missed riding my bike.  Suddenly at 4pm this afternoon, I felt normal again!  I hope this means that life will return to its originally scheduled programming now!  Crossing my fingers that I feel just as good come morning!  This post has taken far too long!  It took ages for the photos to load.  Now it is late!  Off to sleep.  Goodnight friends.  Hope you enjoyed your weekend!  Be back with more this week...
