random photo post!


I have so many books. I collect them, they're my treasures that I greedily pore over.

Click those for closeups and tell me if you want to borrow any!


Are you impressed? That's not all, either -- I have three or four boxes at my 'rents' house.


And kmiotutsie sent me a present for my birthday!!! I'm not one to care about when a present arrives, especially if it's something as awesome as this. Purple + glass = two of my favorite things in one! I love glass, that's the real reason I bead. I like playing with glass... it's so beautiful. Did you know that it's actually not solid? Over a long period of time, it will flow down with gravity. Anyway, here's the awesome ornament:

I really like that first photo, it seems so artistic to me. And that round thing is a mirror that happens to be refecting a painting I did that is hanging on the opposite wall.

misemifein2 also sent me a fantastic present a while ago, and I just can't get a color-accurate shot of it, it's almost exactly vivid violet, somewhere between these two shots:

Thank you so much Kat and Kate! And Anika and Kyra too, I haven't forgotten yours! I have the best LJ-friends ever.

I made some awesome earrings and took photos of me wearing them:

The first one is blurry, but shows off the sparkle -- hard to catch in a photo.
For some reason I really like both of those photos of me.

And here's two of me wearing my new favorite hairdo:

(I know, polka dots, ew, but there were pink rhinestones that I tried to peel off and they left their backs on the sticks... still, better than pink.)

I have lots of books too. I have a terrible time parting with them. Unless, of course, it's a book that I didn't like very much.

belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
heh. I love to buy from thriftstores and used book stores -- old books are the best kind, because they have a history and that old-book smell.

My stepfather built me a floor-to-ceiling bookcase when I was little. I had to leave it when I moved out...I miss it dearly. Most of my books are in boxes, in spare rooms or storage now. I could probably fill two or three of my old bookcase...someday I want a real library.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
Me too! Like the library in Beauty and the Beast, do you remember?

all those books and videos and then a TINY music system - i must say i dont think i have read that many books EVER let alone own that many
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
it's small but powerful. I adore it.

And that represents probably a tenth (at the most) of all the books I've ever read... and I've read many of them more than once. ;-)

My dream is to own a library of my own :) I'd so love it.

And the little misfit of a cat is still cute :)
belenen ══╣vivacious╠══
;-) Me too, I want a huge library...

*sad* we are moving and all our books are boxed up
you have good taste *smileys*
glass is so awesome that 'drop' is gorgeous

*heart* the earrings, i wish i could wear earrings without my ears being all rude

*envious* of your hair, mine is growing out and in between right now *yuck*
that look is beautiful, very complimentary of your neckline

*heart* the kitty picture
belenen ══╣choker╠══
thank you! for the compliments!

As for earrings, I know of some hooks made from a metal that is less reactive than gold -- even people who can't wear gold earrings because of allergies can wear these. Let me know if you are interested!

Pretty purple baubles! The cat is just classic! I really like that bun, Ill have to try it!
belenen ══╣mysterious╠══
I love that word, 'baubles' -- it's one of my favorites. Not sure why.

Cool, post photos when you try the bun! Here's how I did it: put my hair half-up with a little hair tie, then braided the rest, then flipped up the braid, coiled it on my head over the tie, and stuck the sticks in. ;-)

I LOVE books. When I was younger, I always wanted to own my own bookstore. When I have my own house, I planning on having a very extensive library. I like to go to Barnes and Nobles and buy a bunch of books that are on the reduced shelves...
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
Oh my dear word, B&N reduced-price stuff is way too expensive for my taste. Try your local goodwill or thriftstore, they often have books for 25 - 75 cents each!
