diamond shapes

"Diamond Girl - you sure do shine 

I'm standing in front of our doorway, in 2010. 
My blouse is thrifted.

Glad I found you - glad you're mine

My mom added the blue black panel to lengthen the skirt.
Notice the geometric diamond shape
in the skirt and the tights.

Oh my love you're like a precious stone

The photos below don't have any diamond shapes,
 but they sure do shine.

Plus the color scheme matches.
This is a gorgeous house we saw in Florida.

I could never find another one like you 

Check out their landscaping.

Part of me is deep down inside you

I like the roof, windows, garages...

Can't you feel the whole world's a-turnin'

We are real and we are a-burnin' 

Diamond Girl now that I've found you 

It's around you that I am

  5. those fancy houses remind me of Crete a little bit. the style, those gardens, the colours.. I miss that island.
    and when it comes to diamonds then some time ago I actually wanted myself a diamond shape tattoo but then changed my mind. anyway, you always share the coolest clothes, shoes, accessories. I love that collar!
