This and that.

LeeAnn of Mint Basil and The Cherry Stem and I recently discovered that we both have a crush on yellow at the moment. Naturally the next step would be to do a swap! Since LeeAnn has received her goodies, I can show you the beaded things I sent her.

This necklace is made of oxidized sterling, yellow chalcedony, and a vintage enameled flower. I really, really wanted to keep this for myself!

As one of my "just for fun" items I made her a beaded flower and framed it.

I think those little frames are perfect for the beaded flower. I also sent LeeAnn a tea towel, a tea cup, some notecards, candy, and preserves from a local orchard. It was a lot of fun to find and make things for her!

When I was recently catching up on Melissa's blog, I discovered that I needed to add something to my Amazon wish list!

I love Cynthia's designs and her blog. I'm sure this book will be beautiful.

And now I'm off to get ready to go to the zoo with N.'s class. Should be a fun day! Well, except for the bus ride. Buses never seemed that bouncy when I was a kid.

Ooh, that's a beautiful necklace! :) Yellow doesn't get enough attention, IMO.

Ooh, I love that necklace! I can see why it was hard to part with it. I think Cynthia's book is going to be amazing - I can't wait for November.
