summer starts

argh, such a bad photo, I know. It's just so bright and hot out! It seems like we went from a reasonably chilly and exceptionally wet Spring right smack into Summer in full tilt! After lunch, Iona and Mili went for a walk to get some frozen treats, and brought me one back, too. Aww <3

The last week of school was pretty hectic - Aedon and Myfanwy had chorus/choir concerts, Aedon, Xander, Song had band/orchestra concerts, I stayed after school a few days helping the art teacher tidy up the room, and brought home oodles of supplies, too! - but now that most of us are out, it's pretty boring. Not all of us signed up for camps or activities, so a fair portion of us have just been sitting around wasting time. Aedon keeps IMing me links to lolcats. That sort of thing.

What's everyone else doing for the summer?

Spritely Moon purse

Spritely Moon was hosting a give-away on Facebook to commemorate getting 200 Likes. When the first winner didn't contact them back, the second name they pulled was Firinel's! We all congratulated her because she'd never won a give-away or drawing type thing before! It arrived last Wednesday, and Fin's been telling us she wanted one of us to model it so that she could take some nice photos to say 'thank you'. Finally it was a nice day today, and she had time, so asked who wanted to volunteer. Since both Iona and Victoria are into fashion and "looking smart", but Iona's been mentioned here in my blog, the group voted for Victoria.

You can find Spritely Moon on FaceBook at the link above or at their website:

For those curious, Victoria would like me to add that, as for the rest of her ensemble:
- the white puffed sleeve top is from Camelot Treasures,
- the black flared skirt is from Suzy M Studio,
- the black vest and black sling-back kitten heels are authentic American Girl.
