Fritett Fiesta!

After making the set in the last post, I have become a little addicted (if can you be a 'little' addicted!) to Tan's fritetts...

First one is a set: Dark Cherry Choc Chip where I've teamed the fritetts with Black Onyx faceted rondelles, freshwater pearls and candy jade chips.

Then a medley of earrings:

Autumn Fiesta - with freshwater pearls

Cottage Garden (can't you just see roses hidden amongst a froth of forget-me-knots in these lovely beads?) - with Swarovski Crystals

Jolly Green - with Thai Hill Tribe silver wrapped beads

Pansy Party - with Swarovski Crystals

We had such a lovely time with our friends from Spain... despite the weather being really miserable. We went to Tintern and had a wonderful stroll by the River Wye... and happened upon a bead shop! I honestly didn't know it was there... but as it was, it would have been rude to pass without going in and a 'few' purchases, wouldn't it?!
We also went to the Aquarium in Weston super mare and went to see the sand sculptures, which were fantastic. I've got the photos on my phone, so I'll get them downloaded and show them to you soon. The sad part of that trip was seeing the mangled mess of metal that is left after the big fire on the pier. There really is nothing left.

Of course, as soon as our friends had left yesterday, the sun came out and it's been a pretty nice day today too. Typical!

Keep your fingers crossed that we have this nice weather on Sunday as Sarah and I are selling at a garden party... with only a gazebo for shelter. Yikes!

Hope it's sunny wherever you are and that you have a great weekend.

Much love to all.
