Somehow, I ended up at the Bead Show...

I wasn't going to...but...when Dean & I had to run up to Cincinnati Pool & Spa, I thought, we're SO close...why not? I'll be good and not overspend (yeah right) but actually I behaved myself. It probably helped that we were on a deadline because we had a showing of our house this afternoon so I didn't have a whole lot of time.

Wanna see the goods???

I spent most of my money at the  AD Adornments booth, which is nothing new. I could spend hours looking through everything there! I bought seven various chains this time and a couple of little trinkets. I bought hand dyed silk ribbons from Riverstone Bead Co.. He always has a nice variety and is priced reasonably as well.

 I bought peanut seed beads....several hanks! The Beadroom booth is always a favorite of mine and she had lots of peanut seed beads AND they were 20% off. I couldn't resist.

Last but not least...I bought these lovelies! I can't wait to use them.

My husband also had a great time talking to the various lampworkers Susan Barnes from Fire Goddess and Nikki Thornburg from Thornburg Studio. Check out their websites...they're quite inspiring!


  1. You got some gorgeous goodies. And how fun to be able to go to a bead show while running errands/tending to business.

  2. Thank you for sharing!! Looks like it would have been fun!!

  3. Oooh, such pretties! Looks like you had fun!

  4. Hot dang, Miss Kristi! I am so glad you didn't resist the urge. I love the peanut beads (I need more, I am hoarding what I have!) and those last beads are so cool. What are they? I don't care, but I can't wait to see what you do with them!
    Enjoy the day!

  5. I have resisted peanut seed beads so far but I feel my resolve weakening.
