I got the best mail today. Unexpected and wonderful! I am so amazed and humbled by the kindness of my online friends.  Laura sent me a surprise package which included the sweet pendant above from Etsy seller Beads by Earthtones which was inspired by the current Art Bead Scene Challenge painting. I love the double drilled holes at the top- and the image of the windmill will be perfect. I am hoping to get this into a finished piece before the deadline on Saturday! Stay tuned.

She also sent this little lovely!  So sweet! This is a ceramic connector pendant from SuzieQBeads

But this is the kicker. Check out these little wooden tags she had made for me! My gosh, they are the cutest things ever! I just love them. Perfect little jewelry tags.I can't wait to check out more from this vendor,
Thank you Laura, you are just so kind!
It made my day!
