Soup time!


My dear Bead Soup Blog Party partner, Vintage Susie, sent me the most wonderful package of treasures.  The soup fixings came in today's mail, and of course I had to open it right away....no delaying gratification for me....especially not where beads are concerned. 

My first peek into the envelope revealed this special wrapping....


And inside....first a collection of beads in turquoise and coppery browns....one of my favorite color combinations....and aren't those little rose beads adorable!?



Then a lovely uniquely shaped copper clasp....and a silvery and white sweet collection....with the cutest little bird nests....



....vintage pearly buttons....lacy medallion...I see a mixed media creation in my future...



...oh....and the best of all....gorgeous pendants made by Susie herself from vintage spoons....so creative!



So now it's time for me started cooking this wonderful soup into some fun new jewelry...

What's that on my face, you ask? Yep,it's a giant grin!!!

Ooops..."lately" not "lates" -- finger-faster-than-brain syndrome strikes again. :-)
