Wherein I Do What I Should Have Done Weeks Ago

Do you ever have days when you wake up and go "Whoa, where the heck did that month go?!?"  These moments are typically accompanied with (a) panic, (b) massive doses of caffeine, and (c) a list of things you need to catch up on.

This counts as one of those things I needed to get done several weeks ago.

The lovely Raida of Havana Beads had a giveaway of some of her fabulous lampwork beads, and I won!

I was thrilled, because Raida's beads always look so gorgeous on the computer screen.  Let me tell you, the pictures don't really do them justice.


Y'all, it took all the strength and patience I could muster to take a picture of the cute package before ripping into it like a wild madwoman.

And look what deliciousness was inside!

Seriously, click on the picture to get a closer look.
The surface decoration is yummy!


Thank you, Raida!  These are going to live on my bead table for a while -- I want to hoard them, stare at them, and fondle them a bit before using them.

Hi Bobbie,
Those are gorgeous! I do not blame you for wanting to just look at there beauty for a little bit longer.

Wow, those are gorgeous!

I admire your patience, snapping a photo of the package. I tend to tear right into things, and the packaging looks like a squirrel got into it. ;)
