  5. So pleasant to the eyes and nice to see some new things. I just saw that you were the number three blog on the most popular bead blogs! That is wonderful, Lori! We gathered some vintage bits and bobs in South Dakota and may have the energy to call ourselves beaders again!! Sure hope so. I miss it!

    Thanks for the lovely comment on my cup and saucer, Lori. You always say the nicest things.

    Hugs, Suz

  6. Oh, gosh... these are beautiful. I love the whole red-and-white collection; and in the USA collection, I've fallen pretty hard for those cobalt quartz beads. I've always had a soft spot for briolettes. XD Lovely features!

  7. didn't get this update...blogger must be PMSing. I missed you and I was worried about you! Glad to see that you are there! Love the red, white and blue stuff.

    I scored a portable Smith Corona typewriter at a church garage sale in a really different dusty orange or ? - can't really describe the color...any way I thought of you! My g'kids are enthralled with these new fangled machines!!!

    We had a fantastic sale...thanks for your previous comments! It was 100 degrees in our new barn - no breeze - but we lived and sold so much stuff! Whew! A month and we have another!
    Happy 4th!
