Two Things Challenge - Brash and Luster





I am choosing this photo of a balloon for Brash and Luster, because I bought it today for Holly's birthday and I noticed how shiny (luster) it was. Below it are similarly shiny items bought from a Card and Present Shop near our house, by Eleanor and Holly, who are it's most faithful customers. They LOVE these pink and shiny objects, and to them, the shop is a never ending box of delights. Perhaps 'brash' is too strong a word for these ojets d'art, but they are quite showy, and just the sort of thing little girls love!

I clearly remember pink and shiny time. Then it was purple - then only black time and now I think my dearest child is beginning to branch out and there is quite a bit of pink coming back. Even her bedroom walls are bubblegum pink
I do love pink myself.

Happy Birthday Holly! Not ever having any sons myself, I'm partial to girls and all the girlie stuff that they attract. Hope she enjoys her special day.

What a perfect day for Brash and Luster :) Happy birthday! Bev, you win the creative prize for always finding something that will fit the challenge!

Don't you love all the shiny pink stuff? My daughters quickly outgrew "flash-n-trash" and are only in to blue jeans and horses now.

Happy Thanksgiving, Bev, even though it's an American holiday, have some pumpkin pie!

Gina, 'flash'n'trash' is another great way of saying 'Brash and Luster'!

Hi Beverly,

These are great for the challenge. I have been trying to figure out what to do myself to include brash - so you have given me ideas. Luster I don't think I'll have any problem with!
