Recent Purchases

I do have some beads to list, but since I haven't photographed them yet, I thought I'd take you on a tour of my latest shopping spree (in no particular order)!These little porcelain hearts are from Nancy, of Round Rabbit Extra. Nancy was my Bead Soup partner, and I just can't resist her work, it seems! Right now, I'm just hoarding them!
This gorgeous little birdie is from LeAnn at SummersStudioEtc on etsy as well. The birdie is so pretty and nice to hold - I have been taking it out of it's little package and just holding it (no, I am not sick - you guys do it too!!!!).
This beautiful butterfly pendant is also from LeAnn. The photo just doesn't do the coloration justice - it is so beautiful, I can't wait to make some beads to match all the colors in it - this one is definitely just for me!
Finally, this beautiful polymer clay necklace from Zu - do you know Zu??? She is at Zuleykha on etsy as well. She lives in England and while her day job is as a professor, she makes these beautiful canes and creations. She also has some tutorials available if you do polymer clay work yourself!

Ok, that was my tour of spending - not too bad, I guess. I was stuck in the house all week because of the large amount of snow we got, so shopping was in order! I have only received my mail twice in the past week. I wonder if I bought anything else????

I think this Bead Soup thing is going to be the death of my bank account! I love all the pairings and am blown away by the talent! Great buys! Enjoy the day! Erin

Ah, Sue, I love that you take that little bird and just hold her. They are very personal to me and created just for that very purpose. You have so many beads that I can see with the butterfly. I know Zu's work and it is incredible. Nancy's hearts are gorgeous and I can see so many ways to use these little beauties. I still can't imagine living with all of the snow you've had. Stay warm and dry.

What beautiful new pieces! I couldn't resist LeAnn's new birds either. :-)
