The Best Things in a Plain Brown Wrapper

     I was not having a great week. I had an accident and had to have surgery on my knee. I was feeling sorry for myself and guilty because my accident was creating havoc in my families lives. I arrived home Monday night from the hospital, in pain, tired and very done with the day.

     In my mailbox was a box and I knew the minute I saw it that my soup was in there.
     In the box were 5 plain brown boxes, all tied with little ribbons and a note from my partner, Linda Djokic Lutka & Co. To say that I was delighted is an understatement ~ this was the perfect pick-me-up! Linda is a talented lampworker and had sent me some of her beautiful handmade beads. Along with a ton of filler beads, silver components and a really lovely silver toggle.

     The photo is not perfect, but I was so excited to share that I couldn't wait until I was allowed to climb the stairs to post about the stash she sent. I promise I'll do better pictures as soon as I can walk! Aren't the oranges so charming!? Also really love the heart, who doesn't love polka dots?? But I'm really impressed with the glass flowers... awesome! I hope I can make something worthy! Stay tuned.... I'm percolating!


  1. Love the heart and I'm sure you will make something wonderful with all the beady goodness.

  2. ~looks like a fun array of bits and pieces...looking forward to seeing what will come well~

  3. FIVE boxes!! Yeah, that's got to be a perfect pick-me-up! And the contents. . .wow. I think you're going to have a blast with this soup!!

    1. Five is a lot! -- I've already made 2 pieces and it seems like there is still a mountain of great stuff left. Which presents another problem.... what if I can't come up with something for ALL of it!!

  4. Stopping by visiting all the blogs taking part in the Bead Soup Blog Party cant wait to see what you make!


We're dying to hear what you think!!
