Harmien's RAK!!!

I was so flabbergasted to find a fat little package in my mailbox yesterday from the Netherlands! It was from darling Harmien! And, look what it was! This handmade threadkeeper and long strands of silk ribbon in just my favorite rosey colors. I gasped so loud when I opened the package that I surprised myself and turned to see if anyone heard me! LOL It was later when I really sat down to touch it all in every detail that I discovered the tiny carved initals, too. I'm going to treasure it, use it, and remember Harmien and our friendship always. I'm so grateful, Harmien. Thank you so very much....and for the surprise of it, too!!!
So many of you voted the "Sea Rose" as your favorite necklace that I thought I'd give you a better, close up of it....or at least try to. I didn't get all of the pearls and sea glass in this pic., but it gives you some of a better idea. Deb in CT asked if Naples Bead Shop has an online shop. They do, and here's the link: http://www.naplesbeadshop.com The owner, Lynn, is a friend of mine...simply because I come in so often!! LOL You may have fun seeing the pictures of her shop and some of the necklaces and things they sell.


Happy stitching weekend to all! Thank you so much for visiting me and leaving me notes. I check every day to see who's been by, and it means the world to me to see that we are connecting and keeping up with eachother this way....that's why I blog!

Love,
Deb

Your beaded works are so cool! I love them. And you won't drive me away with your Marie Antoinette stories. I have loved reading about royalty since I was a young girl - always had a fascination for it especially French and English. I was enthralled when I went to Versailles and saw the Trianon and all. I was born in the wrong century!
