What's the difference between Houndstooth and Herringbone?
First, houndstooth, hound's tooth, dog tooth, (for more names see the WIKI) consists of abstract four pointed shapes, broken checks, using tessellation. See pictures below.
As you all know, traditional houndstooth is done in black and white. However, that is not necessarily the main characteristic of houndstooth. It's become something that is done in various patterns and colors, as a more creative way of displaying houndstooth. Fun and flattering.
Herringbone is quite different from houndstooth. It's called a broken twill weave, a broken zigzag pattern and resembles a skeleton of a herring fish. See the samples in the picture below.
Both of these prints or weave patterns are traditional but have recently been turned out in very creative and artistic ways. Traditionally, these are woven with wool, but these days, they can be printed or woven with very different fabrics and on very exciting materials. They can be fun instead of stiff. They can be used at all times of year and in both casual and formal situations.
In the picture above, I am holding the Yogi Secret box. It's fun, full of 6-8 premium, full-size products designed specifically for yoga girls. These products range from spiritual growth tools, fitness accessories, and lifestyle products to aromatherapy, jewelry, candles, and crystals. It's full of 100% vegetarian, all-natural, cruelty-free products that come to you every month to use in your regular yoga practice. Each box delivered helps save an animal's life and stop animal cruelty through their charity partners. Click on the picture to order.
Health and Wellness:
Life can be super confusing. I have started to move away from being on top of current events, other than the basic details. It seems like the dirty details are force fed to us all day long in any way possible. It's very divisive. I don't like the way it makes me feel.
A lot of the things that are thrown at us are details on issues that should be kept private. The people they involve wind up losing their well being, losing their reputations. The law is supposed to work in the realm of innocent until proven guilty. However, it seems that now it's guilty until proven innocent.
Things have gotten so bad with current events (mostly political) that soon there will be a necessity for accusation insurance.
What has gotten lost is the fact that the rest of the world is still out there. There are events happening all over the globe and there are a lot of our fellow humans that need our help.
We need to get back to truth, honesty and generally good character. These are the things that should be put on a pedestal. There is so much less confusion when things are run with law and order, holding to high standards.
I challenge all of you to pull away from current events (other than the basics) and get back to helping your neighbor, working on your own home (personal character and all), and looking for things to post on social media that are full of good humor and uplifting moments to give that uplift to your followers. We all need a good uplift.
My Love Story:
...continued from last post...
We finished with dinner with nothing happening with that box in his pocket. I was kind of relieved that nothing happened in a restaurant full of people. I would have been so beet red and sweaty.
After dinner, we took a drive up to a park up the hill from Steve's mom's house.
It was cold...really cold. However, the stars and the moon were bright and Steve and I were the only ones there...did I say it was cold?
We sat on a bench in the park and talked and looked at the stars. At some point, Steve got to asking me to marry him. Romantic? Yes. Private? Perfect. Thoughtful? Always.
Did I say yes? Of course I did. What an amazing person. It was unreal. I was on cloud nine.
Love was in the air.
