See that picture above...that's me that is - one very happy bunny bouncing around the house this morning after the postie delivered the bead soup sent by my partner Julie Nordine.
I knew that whatever Julie sent me would be a pleasure to work with - with the fabulous beads she makes and her background in interior design how could it be anything else. But I still gasped when I saw the contents of Julie's parcel. She's been incredibly generous, sending me several focal pieces and a beautiful clasp as well as a whole heap of goodies to go with them and, I can honestly say there is not one piece in this mix that I don't love. How spoilt am I ?!!!
I guess you want to see what I got now don't you? Well brace yourself here it comes...
How Stunning is that not so little collection...?
I just adore Julie's signature acorns and that etched copper leaf is to die for. As well as those I have lots of Vintaj to play with, gorgeous turquoise nuggets, crystals, pearls, pretty silver beads and to top it all off that sumptuous silk ribbon.
Can you tell how happy I am by any chance? There are already a number of ideas sparking up in my head but I think I will just sit and look at my treasure for a day or so while they settle into something coherent.
Julie - thank you so, so much - you've made my day and this party very special. I really hope I can do justice to your beautiful beads. Again - thank you.
Good luck to you all with your own beautiful soups too - this is gonna be one helluva reveal!
