Okay so my oatmeal post wasn't a resounding hit. I still think it is a genius idea.
We'll just get back to our regularly scheduled programming of sparkle.
I do have some fabulous readers here on Under A Blue Moon. Patti, who just so happens to live near me and turned me on to the Under the Freeway antique fair (officially known as the **Sacramento Antique Faire) a few years back, is one of those readers.
Anyway - Patti emailed me and asked if she could send me some bits and bobs she had. I find it hard to resist rhinestones so I accepted her gracious offer, figuring she send me a few broken brooches and loose beads.
Well imagine my delight when a very heavy box arrived a week later stuffed full of all kinds of beads, rhinestones, parts of necklaces and bracelets and the like.
I can't wait for creativity to strike me so I can put them to good use. In the mean time I'm just enjoying sorting through them and petting them.
Thank you Patti! This was such a treat.
**Sacramento Antique Faire is this weekend (1/8/2012 6:30am-3:00pm) if anyone is in the area.
