Bead Table Oreo

I know it's a little late for bead table Wednesday.........this picture sort of sums up what's happening on my table.  I have to make sure to leave a space for my helper or she paces over the table and into everything...(orange paws last night).  My other helpers are in their spots on the floor...Bob thought if he crawled behind my back I would vacate the chair......wrong!  He had to settle for his plastic shoe box bed.....Oh I love my helpers..Bud is sitting on my right arm as I type and Bob is settled in on my left side....Foo girl is down the couch.....Nosey is off to bed with the Mr---sounds like a good place to be.  One last big show and life will be ....a little slower??????

Shoots and Junk.....

Bob and I took a little time again today to take a walk around---we finally had rain this week and the leaves floating in the bird bath caught my eye...(the walk seems to have tired him out he is stretched out beside me now typical Bob position all 4 legs in the air.....)



As always there are wonderful shots at Lori's take a little trip over to view them.















On Friday the Mr and me took an afternoon to head over to the Mississippi River and do a little junking.....we found some great junk

Meet our new  table for the loft room we have been redoing....the table will fit great between our the cats new Lazy-Boys.  They took an old furnace grate and put it on an old magazine rack....a little cleaning and a quick spray of krylon and we are ready to go.

I needed a stand for our earring display at Premier Peeps. We were lucky to find this at the Junk Asylum the store is always full of fun reasonable priced treasures. 













I have been busy making bullet earrings to match the necklaces.





We found a neat typewriter

I fell in love with the trike......a great jewelry display piece......the price was right!  It will fit right in with all the tire displays we are using.


We had a great visit with Deb at Colorworks in LeClaire and then headed off to our favorite boat for dinner and a little wagering......I walked out a winner!  A fun day for us now back to the grind.....it's field time for him so long hours ahead and I have a lot of jewelry to create!
