I love the colors in the mermaid earrings and the ocean charm bracelet is beautiful!

I just realized that the 2 lockets Tero sent me got left out of my photos!    I already have plans to make a miniature diorama out of the silver one!  I was inspired by the Wicked Forest Matchbox gallery.

Off for a sunny day bike ride now.  Maybe I'll find the right small branch for my owl!

Ahhh....I didn't post a lurky, to-get-an-update post so I missed peeps package, until now....

@ calixita, what a great haul!  Such beautiful beads...and I am coveting that owl bead!  (I went to Joanns to look for some, on a tip, but they were sold out. Cry  Still need to check online.)

@Abbeeroad, love the jellyfish earrings, so creative & the book pendant is so fab!

@lissablair, what a lucky gal to get a dip in jennie's bead stash!

@jennie, those mermaid earrings are amazing!  And the bookmark is beautimous!
Jennieingram, songs will be composed that tell of your awesome awesomeness!
Indeed, an honor truly worthy of dear jennie!

@crassy_mcnasty, YAY!  I'm beyond thrilled you like your goodies! Grin

Ladies….feast your eyes  Shocked Two, heaping helpings of beadsoup all in the same day..ahhh
Cackle and Calixita both out did themselves and I can’t thank you each enough.
Here we have soup package one from the Lovely Cackle

A beautiful velvet beaded purse, a pair of lovely earrings, tons of glass beads and pearls and a great collection of brass and bronze stampings and goodies.

A close up of the brass and bronze stampings and goodies

Close up of two glass flower pendants and a gorgeous vintage glass button.

Fancy smancy purse, I cant wait to use this on a hot date with hubby
And finally a beautiful pair of handmade earrings

I wish you could see the colors better. Because………

The package that I received from Calixita has a stunning handmade bracelet….

That matches it like they conspired. I LOVE wearing greens, blues and purples together.
She created this bracelet with thread and beads. I am blown away !! I would have been more than happy with this and a tiny pile of beads. BUT she sent this along with the bracelet….

Stones, glass and shells !!

Wow! That beaded bag and the beaded bracelet are AMAZING! Great work, cackle and calixita!!!

I'm so glad you like everything, ceemonster! You sent an awesome soup that I can't wait to show off...and here it is!!

I just received a lovely bead soup myself from ceemonster!

First, the crafted items. Inspired by my pinterest, my love of all things hippie, and summer! I love, love, love these!!



Next, some cool clasps. I requested these, especially the magnetic ones. They are beautiful! I love the leaf and flower ones, can't wait to find the perfect project for them!



Some beautiful red stone chips:



Some very cute glass hearts. I have ideas for these already!



A really awesome wooden pendent and some shell-y disks:



Some small wood beads (I use beads like this all the time...love the colors!):



Some smooth white stones and that's garnet in the middle (my birthstone and also fave ever - thank you!):



Lovely assortment of charms. I especially love the spirals, the frog, and the wire-wrapped one:



I LOVE these marbled stone beads!



More stones - can you tell what I requested in my questionnaire?  Wink



And if all that wasn't enough, a delicious soupy mix!



I pulled out some faves:



Thanks so much, ceemonster!!! Great swap!  Grin
