Temptation and Pear Frost Links

This past weekend, a BeadStreet USA show was in town. I tried to resist the temptation to go, but if you read my Facebook on Sunday, I couldn't resist any longer and went on my lunch hour. The show was kinda sparse which normally would be a problem but since I was in a hurry, it was perfect.

I had a couple of things I was looking for so I went in like a stealth missle - zeroing in on what I was looking for and trying not to get sidetracked. I made a few quick decisions and was out of there. All done on my lunch hour! YAY!

This morning, I've taken my morning coffee outside and the strands of beads I bought.

Quite a colorful bunch, huh? I'm not really sure what it all is, I think it's mosaic turquoise and dyed turquoise. The bright pink/fuschia are dyed stones of some sort I think. I was going for color this time around.

The dyed turquoise was bought first because I had the Frost Links in Pear in mind. I think they go together quite well, don't you?

Topping today's to do list is to make something from the Pear Frost Link and the dyed turquoise before I have to leave for work at 11:30am. So I better get crackin'! What's topping your to do list today?

Yummy! I am glad to know that I am not the only one supporting the local economy with my Bead Stimulus plan! It is a good thing that I don't live anywhere near where a bead show might come! Enjoy the day! Erin

Mmmmmmm! Those look like fun! I'm anxious to see what you make!

My to do list topper is to let Spike stay outside as much of the afternoon as he wants. He loves to be "by his tree," and, since it's his last summer, I just want him to be happy.

Those beads do look yummy...the orange/brown mixed beads are dyed mangasite and the pink look like dyed crackle agate (I have some lovely light aqua/brown). Delish!
