The very top wood beads necklace is from a local shop in Thailand. After we had our 1st daughter, my dad took us family to Thailand when we traveled back to Taipei. I was fanaticized by African culture at that moment. Basically, I am such an xenophile of everything. I know those are handmade by local family or artists who might make it for a living for a huge family. If I can make a small change to a local family, I will be so happy. There I bought it at local instead of paying triple price at fancy department store or gift shop at Hotel.
I seldom wear it during winter or fall. I guess it is because the necklace is from a sultry country and I think only a light weight, simple w/ earthy tone ensemble would suit it. Now looking at the necklace makes me feel like tapping drums and playing rattles!! haha...
Rest of them are gifts. I like the ring when first saw my friend wearing it. She said it is from a girl friend of hers who makes such handcrafts for fun. So she asked her friend made one for me. Those beads are a symbol of luck.
As for the blue necklace and matching earrings, they are gifts from my DH's client/boss' wife. They are Indians living in USA but travel all over the world most of the time. I never been to India but I have been to Dubai if you think they have similar culture. It is such an exotic country w/ everything looks strange to me...hah.....But strange means fun and adventurous to me!!!

My friend, Cathy, wants to go to Great Mall today. We took kids lunch at Fresh Choice as they can have everything they want and toss everything they don't like there!!ahha....
I decided to take off my blue necklace and earrings as they look too busy on me.
Ok!! So everyone smells my little girl pued but me, I guess I still suffer from nasal congestion.
I had to change my jeans after get home since it stained w/ my girl's pu.
I found the skirt even compliments my tops better........w/ a pair of so my style boots.
Amazingly those colors are from different brands but works perfectly together!!
