It was a long weekend of rain, but today the Sun is shining and the air is cool. My windows are open. I hope the rain lets up for a while, several of my friends have flooded basements. ::sigh:: I love the rain despite how it makes everything so wet. ::smirks::
Moon and I didn't enjoy driving in the rain to Cincinnati for the bead show but we did enjoy looking at all the beads. My mind goes bonkers when I go into that large room, looking over the sea of gemstone strands and not knowing which to choose and which to leave behind, because isn't that sad? To leave anyone behind? ::sigh:: I touch them. I listen to the chatter of women who're most likely hobbyists (especially when they squabble about paying $17 dollars for their order...lol). I try to ease my way into a busy table only to realize it's pointless and I should come back another time. I am patient. I will get my turn.
Not even a sound.
I stand there wondering what to do.
And then it hits me. :)
But... but...I DO have some out-the-door specials I'm listing because I couldn't keep my hands off the new strands. Let me say this... bleached turquoise and lapis. OMG. Do you know how hard it is to find creamy bleached turquoise? You don't? Well, let me tell you! It is HARD. And there was ONE strand left. ONE. And guess who snagged it? I paid dearly for it but that's okay. It was worth it. And my hands were shaking just touching it. :) (nah, just kidding.) By the way, the photo to the left isn't bleached turquoise, it's your standard turquoise-turquoise. :) Bleached turquoise is a creamy, milky white color with matrix running through it and it's beee-uuutiful with so many things.
So I'll be back. I WILL BE BACK! ::giggles:: I can barely stand the excitement!
THE BIRDS ARE SINGING! :) (can you hear them?) I can!
