I received from mistress Jennie on Friday and then my weekend BLEW by and I didn't get a chance to post, so here are the pix!

It's a wonderful stash- loved it all! 
First off- opening the box:


Then some great colorful shell beads and glass beads:


More variety- I love the red strand and the green striped agate:


Finally some great silver charms, keys (I love keys!!), and a beautiful bracelet and earrings in my fav color- red! 

Thank you so much mistress Jennie - it was like Christmas all over again!

There are some wonderful stashes in this gallery! I was beginning to think I had gone OTT - but now I am worried I have not sent enough - especially after having received my packages. I have made a real soup - ie lots of different ones, (and the small ones thrown in together not sorted out  Embarrassed but not many of the same - still hopefully people will like them when they arrive.....

anyway - this is going to be pic heavy - I have received two wonderful stashes.

I received first from Artmomto5 so will upload her pics first - sorry for the delay!

Firstly I got some ceramic oriental animals - rabbits and panda bears - I LOVE this and am trying to think of something very special to do with them!




Then 3 beautiful glass fish and a glass frog:




Some funky round beads with a coloured centre. Clear and pink, clear and blue and blue and pink - these are really cool too!




Some green glass beads, they're a lovely colour:


a selection of glass beads - there are some really pretty ones here:


and some lampwork (Huh I think???) beads I love these, especially the clear / orange / red / blue ones:


Then I got some ceramic (again I think) type beads - they look very african to me:


As if all those weren't enough - I also received a pretty bracelet and a lovely necklace:



It was very close to decide which was my favourite - the three runners up were the frog, the panda and the fish - but this one just topped it:


Thank you very much artmomto5 I love all of my new beads and jewellery Cheesy

I then received from anna.wahnsinn - and am absolutely blown away by the amount and quality of what she sent - this is going to be even more pic heavy!
I'm starting with a picture of everything - just to show the sheer scale of it:


Purple is my favourite colour, and Amethyst my favourite stone - she sent a selection of different sized round amethyst beads:





I also told her I loved heart shaped beads - and she sent a load of those as well!





Purple and hearts - perfect!!!



Some blue round beads (I think they're ceramic) they're very pretty


A lovely selection of green beads


two packets of different sized beautiful red beads:



a big supply of Delicas - we had been discussing peyote and she said delicas worked really well instead of seed beads - I hadn't got any, but ordered a couple of packets to give them a go on her recommendation - and then she sent an extra 5 bags full - I couldn't believe the amount! Three different purples, black and green


As if that wasn't enough - she included some beading wire:


and a beautiful bracelet - which is SO me!


Picking a favourite here was hard - I am LOVING the effect of Delicas on a bracelet I am making, being an amethyst lover I am amazed at all the beautiful amethyst beads she bought - they will be well used! However I fell in love with this bead:


thank you so much - I really hope I have included everything - got slightly confused!!!!

Now I have something to add to this great gallery. I received my soup from Ratfinkz today, and I love it! Plus my daughter loves it, because a) beads and b) Ratfinkz included beads especially for her!

So here is my haul, beautiful larger beads grouped in no special order except for my faves bottom right:



My favourites: A beautiful beaded bead (and those plain bead caps will go very well with it, I think), wire wrapped beads, and two tiny little crystally balls.


Then there are Lea's beads, mostly large plastic and wooden beads that she won't swallow and won't hurt too much if thrown around (after being strung up...). She absolutely loves the large gems and the black rainbowy ones.


She even an actual bead soup, lots of seed beads in different sizes, which I love, and chips, crystals, findings, spacer beads, glass pearls, etc., and lots of it purple (always good). It is sitting next to me as I type...


And after sifting through the soup for a bit I had these: Crimp beads! Do you see the "large" ones? Those would be 2mm... so the tiny ones are really, really tiny, smaller than 1mm! So cool!


Aaaand my favourites from the soup, because you can't seriously expect me to stay out of that bowl... Pretty!


And here are the two (!) crafted items, a beaded dragonfly in purple that I have on my Pinterest



and a gorgeous strung necklace in black, silver and purple with stars and hearts that I absolutely adore!


Thank you for a very lovely package, Ratfinkz, I am enjoying every bit of it!

Naaah, you must be kidding, I love playing with beads, and there are so many pretty seed beads in there and so much other stuff! And what could you have done, fill 100 individual baggies with 5-100 little tiny things each? Soup was the perfect decision. Going through it gives me lots of ideas about what to do with the contents, and I am still finding more favourites in the soup.

So I'll go and play a little more with my beads, and then take off that beautiful necklace and go to bed...
