Hadn't really planned on having a splurge weekend but it kind of turned out that way...at least I can write off the bead buying as a business expense!
I received an email that the bead superstore in town was having a 60% special for customers who signed up for the "club card". Although the last thing I need is another card to carry around I figured it had been much too long since I did a little bead buying. In reviewing my purchases I see that as usual I've overdosed on green...I can't help it! First the lime coin pearls that I buy every time I find them.
Then the chrysoprase...They called this Russian jasper... Some chrysocolla... I don't know what these really are, they're labeled as cat's eye but they look a lot like prehenite to me... I thought the little purse shape of these yummy amethyst was just unique enough that I couldn't pass them up... A semi-matte finished leopard skin jasper.... Some crazy lace agate... And now, last but not least...the Pantone Fall Color report...brought to you by my Lipstick Red toes and the cutest Born leather sandals that I had no option but to purchase yesterday... Thank goodness I can justify wearing them 10 months of the year in San Diego!
