My Beads Are Here From Sweden!!!


 Hi Sweetest of Hearts...I hope you're having a wonderful week!!
I have been ever so patiently waiting for my beads to arrive from my new friend,
my Bead Soup partner from Sweden & can I just tell you...
THE BEADS WERE WORTH THE WAIT!!


 Malin sent me several little, beautifully packaged jewelry boxes,
each filled to the brim with complete yummieness!
My very favoritest one is filled with beads of various textures & sizes.
Glass, wood, ceramic, all in subtle hues of blue, cream & brown.
Like I said, simply 'YUMMY', I adore them Malin!   ;)


 She also included a drawstring bag filled with fiber...
How did she know I needed a little more fiber in my diet?


 And a box filled with lovely silver clasps & silver beads,
big chunky, white tulip beads, white beads of all shapes & sizes,
including 2 little animal shaped beads,
3 red, white & blue beads
& some vintage silver toned chain.
Such a thoughtful & perfectly balanced bunch of ingredients for me to make my SOUP with!


With all that said, am I allowed to say what I LOVE the most about my SOUP?
It has something to do with sari silk & blue ceramic...
Don't forget to stop back by to see the Big Reveal on September 17th,
I can't hold myself back anymore...
it's time to start COOKING!!!!
Is it SOUP YET??

XOXO

Soup is ON, Bead Soup That is!


Hey Sweeties...
I may disappear for a minute, flying off the grid...
but you can't get rid of me that easy! lol
Many of you probably already know this, but once again...drum roll please,
it's time for
Lori Anderson of Pretty Things Blog's, most delicious concoction.


I am so excited to be partnered up with a jewelry designer that I have never had the pleasure
to meet before, Malin de Koning from Stockholm Sweden.
She loves to work with beads & buttons & textiles & her
style seems to be full of color & texture,
sooooo gorgeous!


I'm sooooo excited for my foreign parcel to arrive!
I can't wait to see what she has sent to me,
but I'll bet you one thing...
I just know it will be FULL of COLOR!!!
Take a peek at Malin's beautiful blog, Beads By Malin de Koning
 & as the ingredients for our SOUP arrive,
there will be so much more to share with you as
we gear up for our September 17th Reveal.
Stay Tuned & Enjoy this Beautiful Week!

XOXO
