  1. Wish I could find some time this weekend for my beads - but not so sure it will happen. When I see your Etsy finds, it really starts my appetite though. Thank you.

  2. I like how you combine colors, just great. I am painting through synesthesia which makes me see colors when I hear names and numbers. These colors I transform in paintings. Colors are my life.

  3. You've already listed several of my regular favorites - in fact, I think I have that set from Beeboo favorited already (or, at least, it's a set that's quite similar). I love that hula dancer kitty - that is awesome!

  14. What delicious delights you have found!! Thank you for sharing these with us :-)

    I recently made a necklace with Josephine Wadman's beads (http://theartofcuriosity.blogspot.com/2010/07/neckwear-three-cheers-for-uk-art-bead.html) and I must tell you that Josephine is as delightful as her beads.
