My Bead Soup is here!

I am so excited! My bead soup arrived the other day, and I love it!  It came in the coolest canning jar that matches my office perfectly, and is filled with fabulous beads! I love the focal, it is etched copper with a bezel set turquoise gem. There are ceramic beads, copper beads, and chrysocolla beads. I can't wait to play, my mind is whirling. And there are even some shy beads that fell under the tissue paper who didn't want their picture taken. LOL! I love my goodies! Thank you so much Laura! Check out the soup I sent her. My bead soup for Laura :)

I've fallen in love....with a spray paint!

Have you ever come across a product that you fall in love with? Well I have! In some of my blog hopping, I heard about Krylon's Brushed Metallic oil rubbed bronze spray paint. I loved the results I was seeing, so I just  had to try it out. The results? I am in love, and think I will be buying this by the case! I keep looking around my house wondering what else can I paint. :) My favorite transformation so far? My piano light. I love the shape of it, it puts out great light, but it was dated with the brass finish. A couple of coats, about an hour of time (including the drying) and I have a new light! What do you all think? I will say it again, I'm in love!

My Bead Soup

I have to say I had a lot of fun coming up with my bead soup for my partner, Laura, I had fun reading her blog, and love her macro photography! Check it out! Souvenirs From Life I must have had 12 different piles of beads all over my desk. I hope she has as much fun creating with them as I did in trying to put it together for her. :) Here is a sneak peek! :)

Bead Soup Blog Party

I am so excited to be a participant in Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party! I followed the last party and had so much fun that I decided I had to play this time. She has sign up for the party, and then pairs all of us up with a partner. We then send each other a fun "bead soup" which we then get to create a piece of jewelry from. The day of the party we share what we made!

I just received my partner, her name is Laura Twiford, and her blog is Souvenirs From Life.. I love the vintage pieces she has created in her etsy store. I can't wait to put together a fun soup for her!
