Bead Table Wednesday

My bead table has exploded in a profusion of silk flowers.

My beads have been rudely shoved aside for this latest frenzy of summer hair accessory-making that has gripped me like St. Vitus Dance.

I really need a new glue gun, by the way, this one came over on the Mayflower.

I was attempting to make other kinds of barrettes with my huge ribbon and vintage lace stash but haven’t been happy with what I’ve come up with.

Hey, it’s like Frankenstein’s lab up there sometimes.  Sometimes I make some pretty cute/cool things, other times, it’s a HOT MESS.  Either way, it’s fun.

I keep meaning to post the necklace I made from the Bead Swap from Sarah @ My So Called Junky Life, but want to photograph it outside so everyone can see how sparkly and awesome her beads were.  Her blog is very cool, I would love to browse through her booth! Just lovely.

In the meantime, this past weekend we didn’t hit any flea markets and went to about three tag sales.  I purchased a few things which I’ll post tomorrow, but my favorite thing wasn’t even funky or vintage.  Someone sold me a ton of Tastefully Simple dips and mixes for $1 a piece. WOO HOO. Garlic Garlic Dip is one of my favorite things of all time.  Especially with super thin crispy tortillas.  It was never used.  Oh boy, I’m going to be alienating the boys for weeks with the fumes.

You can see a whole mess of bead tables over on Flickr
