You'll be amused by this sweet but fruity little number!

tb6r0045 Japanese Seedbeads - 6/0 Toho Seedbeads - Pepper Redtb6r0045a Japanese Seedbeads - 6/0 Toho Seedbeads - Cherry RedThe Red sisters, Cherry and Pepper, had just moved to Toho Town. They bought a nice little house over on 6/0 street. They are planning to take advantage of the Sunshine Yellow, and grow a garden with Cornflower, Metallic Moss, some lovely hanging Wisteria Lustre, and a Matte Metallic Plum Iris tree.

Cherry loved to cook too, and she was thinking of opening a candy store. "Pepper," she said, "I love Chocolate Brown and Light Cream Lustre. If I take my tb6r0711 Japanese Seedbeads - 6/0 Toho Seedbeads - Nickelsaved Nickel, and open a shop, will you help me?"

"tb6r2219 Japanese Seedbeads - 6/0 Toho Seedbeads - Silver Lined GrapeHmmm," said Pepper, "Do you think we could sell Silver Lined Grapes and Galvanized Limes?" 

"I think we could do that," said Cherry. "A candied fruit store! How perfect! And we could sell online all over the tb6r2112 Japanese Seedbeads - 6/0 Toho Seedbeads - Silver Lined Milky Mangoworld and have Milky Mango and Milky Nutmeg too! Let's do it." So they counted up their Metallic Copper Penny Hybrids, and soon found that after moving to Toho Town, they didn't have enough left to rent a store front and buy inventory.

"27800960-20 Shaped Glass - 5 x 7 mm Pip Beads - Crystal Sunset (strand)Oh dear," said sweet Cherry. "Our dream business will sink like a Crystal Sunset into a Crystal Lagoon if we can't raise some Silky Gold." Fiery Pepper had a temper like a Crystal Volcano, and when she thought of her sister being unhappy, it made her burn with the rage of a thousand Inside-Colour Sun Glows.

s41947 Cord - 5 Wt Rayon - Poppy Red (Spool)So she called their Aunt, Poppy Red. "Aunty Poppy," she said. "Cherry and I want to open a candied fruit s41944 Cord - 5 Wt Rayon - Hot Pink (Spool)shop and call it 'Orange U Sweet?'"

"Aren't you the Smartie(tm)!" replied Poppy. "I think that's a Hot Pink idea."

"Well," said Pepper, "We're a little short of Bronze to do it with though. Could you lend us some Old Gold?"

tb6r2118 Japanese Seedbeads - 6/0 Toho Seedbeads - Silver Lined Milky AmazonPoppy thought for a minute. She had been saving for a trip to the Silver Lined Milky Amazon, but then she thought, "If I invest in their business, then there will be money enoughtb6rpf0561 Japanese Seedbeads - 6/0 Toho Seedbeads - Galvanized Sea Mist [Permanent Finish] later for all of us to Jet to the beach and enjoy the Galvanized Sea Mist and see the world through Colour Lined Rose/Crystal glasses."

"All right," she said. I have some Matte Galvanized Yellow Gold that I s42034 Glass -  Dragons Claws - Silky Old Copper (25)have been saving, but I want to be a partner in this business. You can call it the 'Dragon Claws.' " Pepper and Cherry happily agreed, and so tb6r0804 Japanese Seedbeads - 6/0 Toho Seedbeads - Luminous Inside-Color Neon Pink /CrystalPoppy moved in with them, and they soon opened their shop - adorned with a Inside-Colour Neon Pink and Inside Colour Neon Orange sign.

They had their ups and downs, like the time they tb6r2208 Japanese Seedbeads - 6/0 Toho Seedbeads - Silver Lined Burnt Orangeovercooked the fruit and had Silver Lined Burnt Orange, and then there was the whole Metallic Olive thing, but still, it was like finding a pot of Galvanized Yellow Gold at the end of the Colour Lined Coral Crystal Rainbow and they tb6r0922 Japanese Seedbeads - 6/0 Toho Seedbeads - Gladiola Ceylonwere always Gladiola that they did it!
