The Big Score!


My mom scored this book for me for Christmas - it's not available in the U.S. yet, but a local bookstore called The Mystery Lover's Bookshop snagged some copies! Do you know about The Millennium Trilogy? Stieg Larsson was a Swedish journalist and author who died before his last three books were published; The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and this one, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. I really like these books; I have read the first two and was going to have to wait for this last one. But not now!

Hi Sue
Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. The cookbook you showed yesterday is one I'd like to look in to too. I just had to say Congrats on your piece in the Jan. Bead Trends...your Passion for Purple bracelet caught my eye...they I looked to see who made it. I'm impressed by not only your lampwork, but those beaded beads!!!! :-)

I haven't read these, but I've read Henning Mankell's Wallander books and Åke Edwardson's Winter books. I'm not sure if they all are available in English, but they are very good.

New Enamel Beads Listed

I just listed a bunch of enameled beads in the SueBeads etsy store. I'm going to be taking a week off. I'm going to leave the shop open, so if you purchase anything from the 10th - 18th of July, they will mail on the 19th! Thanks so much for your patience!

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go!

I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads!


These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells!

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they were red.
