Greetings from Orlando

I made it safely to Florida, and am getting ready for my first day of work. Probably going to a be a long day at the museum, and I hope my feet hold up in these shoes!  I am staying in the same room again this trip. It's really comfortable, and quaint. I love the area.
I took a pic of my new dress this morning- It's so pretty, a floral pattern that I was in love with at first site. And I got it at Target believe it or not! It's Converse!!! Go figure!

Florida looks good on me so far, but I haven't melted yet in the humidity. We'll see how today goes!
I am wishing I had brought a sketch book so that I can think about future jewelry designs but for now, I guess it's good to take a little bit of a break. Thanks to some recent sales, I am looking forward to going bead shopping in Orlando while I'm here. :)
Have a good Monday!!

  6. I didn't know you were here in Orlando! I hope you have some fun things planned and be happy that the humidity is really low right now (relative to what it will become soon!)

  7. You are beautiful. Inside and out.

    Sketchbook, shmetchbook. Grab a napkin. Or that pad of paper that is always in the desk at the hotel.

    I bought myself a lovely leather bound purse sized one, and I rarely use it. I think that I forget it is in there.

    Have a great trip!
    Have fun shopping!
    Enjoy the day!

  10. Have a fun work trip in Florida. Your BeadStar pieces are wonderful. I loved your Heart necklace even when I wasn't sure it was you. Stands out from all the rest. But I voted for me anyway. LOL But there were enough others that I could vote for you.

  12. There's lots to be done in Orlando. The secret is looking through all the chain stuff that has recently popped up.

    If I remember correctly, you're right near downtown and Winter Park. You must check out Park Ave. They've got some really cute cafes and shops there.

  13. Welcome to FL! I hope you enjoy our lovely May weather. Which bead shops are on the "must visit" list? I'm determined to have a day of shopping the next time I'm there... whenever I go I seem to be free only when the stores are closed! Have fun!

  18. Hey! I'm in that neck of the woods too, but not for the summer. Next time your there, We'll have to hang out! Watch out! All of your beading dates might interfere with the actual work!

  19. You look so cute! Love the dress and hope you survive the heat. Although I saw on the weather report that there's record-breaking heat happening where you live, too, so I guess you would have gotten hit with it even if you'd stayed home. Have fun today!
