Lots of beady FUN on Saturday!

This past Saturday, my husband and I went to the Bead Mercantile show in Cincinnati. There was also a gemstone show in the area, so we went to both. My husband is a lampwork artist and he spent much of the time there talking to other lampwork artists. He really enjoyed himself as I walked around spending money..ha ha.

 I spent too much but did get lots of goodies. Wanna See?
Aren't they gorgeous?!? Oh, there's more...

I'm really excited about those teardrop beads pictured above..the green and brown ones = loveliness! 
And of course, my favorite colors...
I give up on trying to steer clear of the blues, greens, aquas and coppers-it's just no use. I immediately gravitate to them. Please tell me that I am not the only one who does this?!?!
I did buy something a bit different for me though and I have a plan for these beauties. Think frosty, icy weather.
Now the plan for today is straightening up the bead studio and making room for the new stash and hopefully getting to create a new piece or two.

  1. It's really scary how much alike our bead taste is. I would have bought most of the same beads...actually I think I do have some of those! LOL!
