New Beads & We are Home...

Hi all, how is your week been? I can honestly say that even though we have moved across the world in the last week, my week has been great...The whole trip was so smooth, we took off only a few minutes late from Heathrow, other than that, it was sunny when we left London, it was sunny when we got to San Francisco. We picked up Sammy, the most expensive hamster in North America without too much hassle...he is very happy in the sunshine...My awesome sister drove us home...we have been sleeping alot, but I have managed to go to my friend Garnet's studio twice already to make beads, while mine is getting set up again...The beads I have listed today are the last of the beads made in England...

They don't call it Sunny California for nothing, since we have been home it has been in the 70's...driving has been odd, in Oxford we never drove, now anywhere we go we have to drive to...we Americans need & could use a good public transportation system...I know we have some in larger cities but not like they do in England. I do miss England, I miss Oxford & Laura & our place...but we are now back in our home & near family & friends so Life is GOOD...

Now to the bad news, the weekly bead of the bead giveaway for the past 2 weeks has not been shipped I am so sorry ladies, I totally spaced it, I will ship them out on Thursday with a thousand apologies...the bead for this last week goes to Ginny of Florida...congrats girl...

The bead above is for this week's giveaway, a yummy underwater anemone bead from my splash series she is about 23mm along the hole x 35mm wide x 7mm thick...

I have added some yummy new beads, including some very yummy Silver Glass Focal beads to the shop, check them out here or on the side bar...I am going to list a couple of more items in the next couple of days, and then hopefully every day after that, my goal is to have a lot of items in my etsy shop all the time...so keep checking back, I will still let you know when there are new beads of course...

off to see the tax guy...thanks for stopping by...

Hi Jelveh,
Welcome back!! There is no place like home...especially near family!
Love the colors and texture of the giveaway bead as well as your new beads on Etsy. Can't believe you are so organized as to be working on beads already and tending to Etsy! Way to go!!
Have a great week!

Hi Jelveh:
I haven't been on line all day. Now that I am I see that I have a big surprise ! WOO HOO!
You are so sweet to do the bead of the week. That's the bead that I think looks like a wave. It will make a gorgeous pendant.
Enjoy the change in the weather---ah, isn't it nice to have 70 degree weather again? That's about what it is here in Florida, too.

Welcome home, Jelveh, and Happy Spring to you! Thanks for sharing the Persian "New Year" tradition with us...I may incorporate some of these into my spring celebration next year:)

The new beads are beautiful, as always :) I'm sure your time across the ocean will provide inspiration for many beads to come!

Glad to hear you arrived home safe and sound--looks like the weather was happy to greet you as well and put it's best face forward. My hubby and I were up at Pismo Beach this weekend and the weather couldn't have been more perfect--just so you wouldn't be too sad to leave the blustery British Isles, right?
Hugs and welcome back!
