Just Another Dab of This and That

I was past due for some "fun shopping",  and since the weather was beautiful Saturday, I decided it was a good time to do just that !    My stash from the bead show....
Sorry the pics are not better, but the small disco balls are sorta blingy like rhinestones,  and the  largest resembles cut steel.  The turquoise nugget and pendant I got with a certain person in mind.

A strand of tiny,  blue, real  sapphire beads caught my attention, but I  am pretty sure I heard a whimper coming from my bank account when I was told the price.  So...They did not come home with me.   Looking forward to working with my new stash, but will save that for a not so friendly weather type day.

Talk about embarrassing !!!   I went by one of the big box stores for flowers, and one of my purchases was a oriental lily - so pretty and I love the smell.  Any way  - one of the buds had bloomed and of course I had to smell it (got to close). Keep that last sentence in mind!
I then went to the bead sale and after leaving there I refreshed my makeup to go to lunch.  I looked in the mirror and  thought "oh good grief" !  I had a strange looking spot on the end of my nose - actually  it looked kinda dark orange/reddish!   Anyway - could not find where it might have come from, wiped it off and went on about my way.  Much later I get home and took my plants out of the car and got some of the pollen from the stargazer lily on my hand, and I realized where that strange "stuff" came from !!!!!  On My!  I don't want to know what all the people I conversed with at the bead show were thinking. Word to Self !  Self - be more careful about sniffing the Flowers.

When looked out this morning 3 more of the buds had bloomed.  Hoping the remaining 8 will be slower to open, so I can enjoy them longer.    Today I planted some more pots of annuals and took some pictures, but have not had chance to sort thru them.

Have you done any fun shopping lately?
Have a great week!

I love those stargazers - people either love or hate the smell. I love it! I know how messy they are though. That's funny about your nose situation. Love the beads and can't wait to see what you do with them. I was at Walmart yesterday and stocked up on more Looking Glass paint, cream colored yarn to make Christmas ornament pom poms and things for my DIL's gift for birthing my grandchild hopefully very soon!

I have the same lilies that bloom in my yard. They are gorgeous but I will not smell them :)
Love all your bead and can't wait to see what you make!

Oh look how gorgeous that is!
I am so jealous of flowers and green right now Glenda.
Great treasures you found there too.
I want that lily!

That is so funny! I did something similar many years ago. We were going to John's class reunion - it was before we were married so I was going to meet all of these people I'd never met. I popped a red and white peppermint in my mouth before we went in. When I went to the restroom about half way thru the part, my teeth were bright red! I about died!!

So much for making an impression on all of those friends!

Flowers are beautiful.

Beautiful blooms and a funny story to go with them:-) You're sure going to be busy awhile creating some new jewelry from the bead show. Sooo pretty!

I hate when that happens - LOL! I've gone out to lunch and had a spinach salad and continued to run errands afterward with spinach in my teeth - ouch!

Glenda, the lilly is gorgeous - worth walking around with an orange nose for awhile. Pretty bling you got. I look forward to seeing what you create with it. laurie
