I haven't been too productive lately with our recent move and Summer's family functions. I made this bracelet a couple of months ago and thanks to the ladies in the Bead Hive, I've found the perfect name for it. "Carnivale". While looking up the word Carnivale online, I found a great painting by artist Patsy Seeley that looks like it could have been the inspiration for this design. I had to share it!

"Lady in Purple"

I love this color combination! The whimsy and the mystery of things carnivalesque. When I saw these beads from lampwork bead artist, Sarah Friskey, I had to buy them. Seems I am always drawn to bright colors but usually design with muted tones. Maybe it's the Summer sun but these beads certainly called out to me.

Front Page News

I love the surprise of seeing one of my listings on Etsy's Front Page. It doesn't happen often but when it does, I'm all smiles and giddy! This happened twice yesterday. Once with my listing of a vintage Thermos set.

And the second time, I didn't see the Front Page but found out about it later. My Melon Cooler bracelet was an alternate in this dreamy collection...

Thanks to the wonderful folks who included me in such fun and beautiful Treasury collections, chicalessia and bontonvintage!

One more AWESOME thing happening right now is that I am running a BOGO 1/2 off sale! See my shop announcement for full details and begin your shopping - just click on the happy shopper below!
