    Ooooooohhhhhh … aaaaaahhhhhh … gorgeous! This is perfection … I’d wear it in a hot heartbeat … most likely each and every day. :( I’m sorry it doesn’t fit you (don’t you just hate when that happens), but someone is going to be very very happy.

    I love this, daylilly. It’s like an early-morning walk along the beach. Particularly
    love how you made the snow-white sea urchin pop against the other muted colors.
