I spent way more at Beadniks than I did at Renegade. The bad thing about being obsessed with beads is that when I get home I have a tiny little big that doesn't seem to be filled with much, yet cost a small fortune!
So, let's see...what do we have here...some lucite flowers, a strand of small silver beads that I love (you can't see the detail that great in the photo, but they remind me of little flowers or pods), and a few Green Girl Studios beads.
Usually, I buy GGS beads at bead shows, which is hard because their booth is always mobbed (understandable because they have great stuff). It was nice to sift through some things without getting shoved out of the way by other shoppers.
N. and I just got back from having dinner with Mark and shopping at an enormous mall. I bought a pair of Dansko shoes online, which are great, but a little too big. I can fit my finger into the back of the shoe. I wanted to try the next size down on in a store, but the next size down didn't fit. Bummer. But, N. was happy, because on a whim I let him get a stuffed animal at Build-A-Bear Workshop. He chose a turtle that he dressed in a Cubs uniform. The turtle's name? Turtee.
