I bought myself a birthday present!!!!

Some absomolutely scrumptious lampy beads from a very talented lampworker, Tania Black.

She is one of my favourite lampworkers here in Aus. I have it on good authority she is dreaming up more beads to tempt me...LOL...i dont mind at all!!!! ;)

Dear sweet Kay

I wanted to tell the few people out there...who read my blog about a wonderful lady...whom I am honoured to call, friend. Kay lives on the other side of Australia to me...but we were lucky enough to meet....IRL a few months ago...i am adopted fairy godmother for her daughter Kat and grandson Rhys, while they lives here in my town. Kay and I spent some lovely moments together during her visit, talking, drinking, beading and learning. I sent her back to Victoria with a list of beads and supplies i was in need bead shop here.

My parcel arrived in conjunction with a parcel for Kat...we had a ball oooohing and ahhhing over the pretties together. But...what blew me away, was the "extra's" i found in my parcel. So i wanted to share with you all my pretties from Kay...such pretties!!!!! Ceramic beads, hollow glass, pewter, seedies, glass pendants, lampwork beads, eqyptian type metal...and my most favourite, a huge red heart!!!

I felt truly overjoyed knowing that someone cares enough to make my day...actually more...week...month...LOL. I have been struggling with some inner turmoil over the last month or this is my dear friends way of saying...i care. I thank her from the bottom of my heart...i hope she knows how much i appreciate her friendship and her kind ways....words arent enough! made a sad, confused soul!!! I thank you.
