When I was out!

First of all my apologies to those who may have looked in the Etsy shop for the new worm, butterfly (already spoken for) and the new owl.  Guess who is the silly old moo who forgot to 'activate' them yesterday morning!!!  DUH!!!  Still, two out of the three are there now - thanks IsDihara for the gentle reminder!!!  I need people like you around me.

When I was out the other day I 'happened' to pop into Asda (a subsidiary of Walmart but not half as huge or with half the 'stuff'!)  We don't have a 'food' Asda here so this type of shop is somewhere I rarely go unless there is something I think they may have.  I have noticed that sometimes the necklaces there have some scrummy beads on.  They are like a magnet to me!!!!

Anyway the temptation of a 50% off in the jewellery section was just tooooo tempting so up I  trotted to see what there was available.  This is what I bought.  A pair of earrings!!!  I'll show  you what happened to them 'in due course'!!!!

  1. I know!! - I bet you took them apart and are going to use all those metal bits as "centres" for other things - brooches perhaps?
    Maybe I'm finally learning how your third brain cell works!

  2. I think you are going to strip them down and re-do something else with them. and half price will make it cheaper than buying beads from a store.
    Good idea.

  3. Ha ha Maureen, I think that brain cell came to see me first before going to OZland because I had the same thought.

  5. I'm sure you will create something lovely with the metal centers. :)

  6. Ooh, a creative mystery is afoot! Well, I thought Jane might use the flowers as inspiration for a new magnetic bookmark, either single embellished flower or making her own flower in tatting with a bead in the center. But my guesses are usually way off base.

  7. What a find! I am dismantling them even as I type this. Can't wait to see what you are up to with this new toy...

    (note to everyone else Jane did some shopping for her little sister!)
