As the days get shorter and darker, do you find yourself seeking anything that reflects a little light?

Sequins aren't just for beauty queens and princesses anymore. You can wear them with a t-shirt or sleep under them on a blanket.

    I thought it was a hold over from my long ago childhood princess phase that made me still love sequins but I can now feel better (more age appropriate) about my love for sparkle when I think about it as a way to capture light - thanks for that! Love that sequin skirt ... too late to get it for tonights event ... not too late to check it out as possible pillow making fabric ;)

    1. You could even make a pillow from a sequin skirt. :-P

    I love it on those two blankets in the bedroom picture! Stared at it forever trying to think of an easy-ish way to diy one like them. It's probably beyond my diying capabilities (or probably just my patience!) but I'm going to hang on to the idea!

    1. I think it's DIYable. I'll be posting some ideas on that very subject (Moroccan blankets) this week.
