Bead Soup with Spice Box Designs

It is 100 here in Iowa, we are cleaning out our mother's collections from a 3 story farm house---I have seen more Avon and STUFF than I ever want to see again!!!  I needed something fun!!  Mr Postman delivered a box of JOY today.   Marla from Spice Box Designs sent me the most beautiful bead soup and even with the heat I did a happy dance!

               Are you jealous of me???  I can't wait to start playing with these beautiful beads.

                                                                 OH..... there are lots more goodies....

sweets for me and my sweetie

Assorted stones........I am thinking maybe a bracelet??

Beautiful..... colorful ...can't wait to play with these!

The shells make me think of the wonderful day we spent in MS a few years ago...a magical day on the beach with my dear Maddy....she chased  sea gulls and romped through the waves all day...the memories always bring a smile....It was just one of those unplanned days that forever live with you...

A collection of beads, brown silk ribbon and oval rings.....ooh ...I am wanting to dive right in!!

I can't thank you enough Ms Marla from Mississippi...

I am off to do another happy dance cause it's too hot for more garage sale stuff so I am going to sit down in my nice messy air conditioned workroom and play with my soup!!!
You all should hop on over to Marla's she has some amazing bead weaving to drool over.
