Thursday was a special day. I had a visitor come to town. I met Kathy online got know her better the year we worked on the Bead journal Project in 2008. We've kept in touch through facebook and emails. Along with being a being a Bead Artist, Kathy is also a writer. You can find her book Tierra Red at Amazon. Take a step back in time in time and enjoy the romance and mystery of this historical novel. It's a very good read!
One thing I found we had in common was "we are not shoppers". What you say "how can we as girls not like to shop?" We laughed about how much money we have saved our husbands over the years by staying away from shopping centers. We didn't talk about how much money we have cost them buying beads! I took Kathy for a ride down Magazine street where we headed to the Beadshop. I don't get over that way very often so it was treat for me too. I love the older part of the city with the shotgun houses, galleries and little shops.
We headed inside where we found this. Delightful displays of finished jewelry.
There were treasures to be found.
These bright colored beads caught my eye. They felt like the color of my soul that day. I loved the stories we shared about families, life and everything in between.
