Take A Seat--A Week in Color--Vintage Chairs!

As promised, here are the treasuries I created with vintage chairs. If I had the space and the money--I would buy ALL of them! :-)

***In other news, I TOTALLY messed with the colors/theme/layout of my blog and can't seem to get it back to the way it used to be! I will fiddle with it more later. In the meantime--sorry for the EXTRA HUGE banner and the white background in the center. :-)

A Week In Color--GLASS

So I got through all of the colors (AND Rainbow!) for glass and even figured out how to get a treasury picture here!!
You can see ALL of my treasury lists by going HERE . Next up, vintage chairs! I was going to do A Week in Color with vintage items, but when I started looking for red items, I found there were a large number of chairs and seating things! That set me on a path toward a rainbow of vintage chair treasuries! See those next time!

A Week in Color--Yellow Bellied, Baubled and Beaded!--Glass

I was suprised that there were SO many great choices to pick for yellow! I could have done TWO treasuries for this one! A beautiful banana bead from the Etsy shop lunacyglass is just one of the yummy YELLOW

items in this treasury !

A beautiful bud vase from the Etsy shop kivaford is just one of the wonderful red gems you'll find in

this treasury !

I'm going to try to do a new treasury each day this week for all the colors of the rainbow--you know how I LOVE them! We'll see if I can accomplish that. I might have to actually spread it out over SIX weeks instead!

Crazy for Cream

Of course it's been months since I had an update here! Time goes by fast and yet for ME, not much comes up that is exciting as say, a CHICKEN showing up on your doorstep. Sadly we lost that chicken, but have added four more. More on that later. I wanted to show you some new beads I've been working on--most of them listed in my Etsy shop.

Hope all is well in YOUR world. I worked on Halloween beads last week so THOSE will be up next. Take care until then! :-)

In Need of Blog Material

Well, it's been a hot lazy summer so far. No shows, no vacation, just wet and then HOT. We've done the pool and the beach but that's about it. We did have a chicken come stay at our house. Just out of nowhere a CHICKEN shows up. I had to do a crash course in chicken care and did the best I could on such short notice but alas a raccoon got to her and she just went downhill after that.
We are now quasi planning to do chickens RIGHT (coop and THEN chickens) but it's been so hot that the thought of trying to do ANYTHING outside hasn't been very appealing.
Just needed to get some little thing up here because I hadn't updated in SO very long!
How's your summer going so far?

*clap clap clap* Bead Show!

Good Lord, my last blog post actually says "The holidays are almost upon us" (or something like that!) can you tell that not much exciting happens around here? Just beads. And even those, some people take pictures of their beads every day and post them. I'm not good about that either. WELL, if you're looking for a chance to see my beads in person, you're going to get four chances in the next four weeks!! Hopefully I will doing a show near you! (check events!)---------------------->
The first of my four shows will be this weekend (March 19th-20th):

I've got new beads and bookmarks even some earrings and pendants! Hope to see you there!!
