Holy Snake Snot, Batman - that was some weird weather. As we stood under a tree while the hail hammered down for the umpteenth time, my friend turned to me and yelled over the rattle of the falling frozen water, "Well, at least it's not lightening!" Highly conscious of the tree that was affording us almost zero protection from the elements, I screamed back at her, "Shut.Up." I know how this weather thing works - never say "At least it's not ... ." Ever.
So I suggest we not tell the weather that this is a long weekend coming up. In fact - I suggest we storm (ha ha) the weather channel and steal all their calendars so they don't know it's a holiday. Who's with me?
So I'm definitely not going to point out that our bricks and mortar store in East York will be closed on Monday for the Victoria Day Weekend. Nope - not going to say a word about that at all.
I will, however, point out that we do have lots of goodies new this week - should you be living in an apartment with one lonely flower box that takes you all of 15 minutes to plant and then leaves you wondering what you and your cats are going to be doing for the rest of the weekend. Why - beading, of course! And you can still have your flowers, because we have flowers! Pretty yellow flowers, exotic Lime Jello Flowers, James and the Metallic Peach flowers, pretty blue Periwinkle flowers, Candy Corn Mix Flowers, ... lots of everlasting flowers!
Serving up with the flowers is, as by now you might have guessed, one of my favourite beads - Firepolish Donuts! Not sure what it is about these beads - but I just love the shape. They seem so ... beady. So quintessentially beady. We have some lovely colour combos, like Azure Storm and Mermaid and Ivory. And Lost and Found, and High Times, and Cherry Bomb, and Moonbeams.
Check them all out here!
And some of the Ruby Velvet Quartz Glass which is such a sizzling shade of red - and very, very hard to photograph.
Lots of Japanese seedbeads coming this month! This week, we've added 20 more 11/0 Toho Rounds - Frosted and Inside-Colours like Frosted Transparent Dark Sapphire, and Inside Colour Purple / Orange and Mint / Light Amber. Colour combos that sound weird, but are surprisingly attractive!
Well, that's it for this week, have a lovely long weekend, stay safe, and, as always, we hope to make your day happier with lovely beads. Please click on a link or an image above, or just go here for all the wonderful new and fabulous old beads this week!
Don't forget - we've started up our weekly sales again - but each weekly sale ends at midnight on Wednesday - so if you haven't checked out your shopping cart by then, your sale bargains will have turned back into pumpkins. Lovely, beady pumpkins, but pumpkins nevertheless!
