Oh, I'm married?

Last night, I arrived home from work, thrilled to be home after a long day in the office. I quickly ripped open my 3 packages. My second purchase from Betsy at Foundling. A single ring, with red and white fabric, to go with the set I had purchased before. It's really gorgeous. Now I can switch out the green ring for the red ring, and it looks great!
A package of large shell buttons from Etsian Feralia, all individually wrapped in tissue for safe travels. They are super. I made this necklace last night. It's now listed in the shop.

And another set of yummy lampwork glass beads from my favorites: The Orange Bell.

Then in a small break from making dinner, Joe says "I bought you a present!" which made me clap and hop up and down like a little kid! I was so excited. It's been a while since I've heard those words.

My super awesome husband, went to Old Navy, and bought me a SWEATER!! OMG! And it wasn't even ON SALE!!! and he even picked out the right SIZE!!

Here's me wearing it:

So after making this button necklace, I thought to myself. WOW. what a great husband. I haven't really spent any time with him lately, so busy making jewelry. We see each other briefly in the morning. Then at the dinner table. and then not again until we fall into bed and are ready for sleep.

So I decided to take a little time off and we spent some quality time together watching a little tv. Reality tv, no less. The Real World, Brooklyn.


Yep, I'm married!


  1. Thanks for sharing - wonderful chain of events and I love the pic with the lovely necklace and awesome surprise sweater!

  2. That necklace looks great with that sweater. What a sweetheart of a husband you have...and he got the right size too. He's a keeper rare jewel for sure...

  3. Love the sweater - I saw it on their website yesterday! Love the necklace too! I can totally relate to the spending time together thing..... I have class on Monday nights - Jon has classes on Tuesday and Thursday nights so those are my nights to work on jewelry. But then my poor doggies feel neglected. Arg!

  4. Love the glass bead bracelet! And I'm a sucker for buttons too, so I really like the button necklace.
    How true we often take for granted the ones we love. Hubby & I had a "date night" last Saturday - we got a couples massage, had dinner and saw Gran Torino. Great together time:)

    I'm a beady beady important friend of Heather Power's. We had Bead Soup this past weekend and I told her I have been reto reading your blog (I have a 3 year old) when I get the chance.

    You have wonderful pieces and a lot of them (again I have a 3 year old) tee hee!

    Keep up the fabulous creative outlet. I sure enjoy reading your blog.

    Sparkly wishes!


  6. A return to the non-bead world from time to time refreshes the mind and makes the fingers itch to return to the jewelry pliers with new ideas - so glad you are taking care of your MUSE, Lorelei. And you're so special, glad you are getting some special appreciation.

    Cute sweater! Married and looking very contented, my dear friend.
