What a pure delight!! I am participating in a bead swap hosted by Sarah from My So Called Junky Life. Sarah is actually my bead swap partner, too. The other day I received her package and it was beautifully wrapped:
|Pretty in Pink!|
What was inside was even sweeter:
|How gorgeous is this? It’s a kitchen matchbox!|
Then I opened the box:
|I totally plotzed over the wee bird’s nests, and could wait to open
this pretty blue drawstring bag!
|OOOOOOH!!! Pearls aplenty with lovely vintage pieces with rhinestones,
little rhinestone spacers, jet crystals, what looks like rainbow moonstone
faceted beads, pearly buttons and carved rose and rosary pieces.
|You could call it a handful of AWESOME.|
I have already started working on a piece that is different than my usual style, which is one reason why I opted to participate in a bead swap like this: fresh ideas and new inspiration. I can’t wait to get home from work today so I can continue working on it. Naturally, I will post the finished piece ASAP.
Thanks so much, Sarah — your packaging was so cool and the beads and other bits and pieces are gorgeous and so much fun!!
