Hello, Hello ~ The Bead Queen Is Back!!!

We had a great trip down to Baton Rouge and Orange Beach to visit friends & family. But, it's always good to be back home. Of course, I can never go back home without stopping by my favorite wholesale bead shop, and this trip was no exception. I think I made a great haul:right now I have everything spread out all over my studio couch, until I decide where to put it all {see anything you like}. I can't wait to get started on some new, fresh things for the shop, plus some traditional pearl items, as well. With Mother's Day just around the corner, Pearls are usually great sellers. So, what else did I do in Baton Rouge??? Ate to much!!!!
and I can never get enough of these awesome Falafels from Arzi's! Ross {the owner} sent me home with a huge bag of them that he made for me, plus a gallon of salad dressing that he makes from scratch! It's the best stuff in the world {believe me}. Hmmmmm ~ now that I think about it, that's what I'm going to make for dinner tonight.

Happy Thursday!!! I missed all of you!!!! Be sure and check back tomorrow ~ I'm posting the next give away and it will be something I make with beads from my new stash!!!

Before I go, I just have to share this awesome moss garden that my friend Annie {MossinAnnie} snuck over and made for us while we were gone. She is amazing!!! Please do check out her website - you'll be glad you did:
It's about 12x5 feet and she made it along the walkway, right outside of our screened porch. What a great way to start the day ~ sitting on the porch, drinking coffee, listening to the birds & taking in the moss garden. Life is good!!
♥ & peace ~ Kathy
