A Gift of Vintage Beads!!

    As much as I love to talk, today I'm not going to do much talking! I'm going to let my gift do the talking! A friend came over yesterday to help me do some housework and to play Scrabble with me (She's really good too!! I beat her 2 out of 3 games, but it was a dog fight the whole way through! ^_^ You know when I say dog fight....that means a lot of giggling, fooling around, and just plain fun!!!). Besides her fabulous company, she brought me a gift of vintage beads!!!! Plastic, glass, wood, etc....Take a look!!!
    These first ones are amber chips!
This is a string of plastic beads I can hang one of my crochet flowers off of!
This is shell chips!
These are some vintage clip earrings I can recycle....somehow!
More beads!!!
Some detached bead sections...
MORE beads!!!
     Aren't they fabulous!!! Well, if you're into vintage things you know what I mean. If not, I apologize for your....lack of appreciation for all things old!! LOL (I say that because I'm old!! Maybe I can change somebody's mind about how great "OLD" is! If not in about in beads?!! ^_^)
   On a completely different note, I wrote this poem yesterday. Or, I should say, this poem wrote me! The first line of it kept going over and over in my head for some reason. And I was in a good mood all day yesterday too, so WHATEVER! I hope you enjoy it!...And have a good weekend everybody!!

Do You Ever...

Do you ever watch the news...
then you get the blues...
or have it really light your fuse?!

Do you try to turn away...
try not to let it ruin your day...
and then it does anyway?

Did you see the earthquake come...
Where the planes were coming from...
Or is it all now just 'Hum Drum'?

Did you say: 'Doesn't bother me!'...
'No! I really didn't see!'...
'Oh! That surely couldn't be!'?!

Do you ever want to cry...
Roll up your sleeves and give a try...
make all the children never die?!

It's hard to sometimes see the good
with all the damaged neighborhoods...
See things the way you know you should.

The T.V. news won't fill the bill...
Doesn't give our hope the needed thrill.
But God...I know he can. And will!


  1. These are great! My favorites are the shell chips!! :)

    I ck out the headlines on CNN every once in awhile and it reminds me why I just read the local paper.
