A Peek in the Kiln


Well it's actually not a peek in the kiln at all. More like a peek at what came out of the kiln this week. Lots and lots of beads. A big bowl of beads. Some I love and some are just not at all what I anticipated. Some of those stinker beads are in that photo above. I'm not telling you which ones though. Because like as not, in a few days I will change my mind and then I'll think they are the most wonderful beads in the world. I'm fickle that way.


Big bowl of pendants too. There were some true stinkers in that lot. Ones that I definitely will not fall in love with. It's like first dates. Sometimes you just know that this is not going to work out. Unlike some of those dates, stinker pendants are easy to get rid of. The just go under the hammer in a very satisfying crunch and chink.  Not something that is every acceptable to do with first dates.

Well I gotta run. I have a date this weekend with my grand daughter. She's turning 5 this month and there is a birthday celebration. I snagged the last Tinkerbell wings and tutu set at the toy store. I see a bit of dancing and twirling in my future. Probably not in a tutu. But I do have a fairy wand. My grandson is now 2 months old and I'm told that he is very interested in his hands and feet and shiny objects. So I'm thinking there may be a bit of on the floor with the little one's tummy time. Gawd, I hope that someone will help me get back up.

Have a fantabulous weekend everyone!

Being a Grandma is so wonderful! Until you realize that you're a GRANDMA!

Did I ever tell you that I give homes to orphan beads? I can't stand to see any bead unloved, no matter how wonky or imperfect they may be. You should definitely list your stinkers. I bet there are more than a few who would love to give them good homes. Like me. ;-) Happy tutu day! Enjoy the day, Miss LeAnn! Erin

You're right - it is generally frowned upon to take a hammer to stinker first dates... lol
Jeez - those beads look yummy all in a big pile - makes me want to run my fingers through them...
Have a wonderful weekend - tutu or no - wave your wand, tickle tummys, dance and twirl!

Sounds like such fun play dates you have planned, so lucky!
and very lucious piles of beads!

Those piles look good to me too! Love the colors especially the matte greens. Have a wonderful time visiting the grandbabies, soak it all up, lots of squishy hugs and kisses and giggles!

Marie Cramp said...

One person's stinker is another person's beauty! I say list them anyway. Enjoy the day with the grandkids.
