Redwork and lampwork beads

Happy Monday!!!'s been a lazy and rainy day. I'm still recovering from the bug I got during the Thanksgiving holiday but it didn't stop me from pulling out my redwork 1903 coverlet that I use every year for Christmas.

I place it on top of my china buffet then decorate the buffet with colorful and pretty

Christmas decorations. Living with 3 males, I feel the need to do fru fru

whenever I can. Redwork was first introduced back in the 1800's using  a colorfast thread made in Turkey. Go here for more information...

Ohhh...I hear the sound of the mailman at my front door...look what I got in the mail today!!!

It's my black Friday etsy orders from Robin Gaudy...
12 lampwork beads called Holly and Canes, they will make a super cute charm bracelet for Christmas.

and I also ordered these super duper cute rose lampwork bead/ pendants for earrings.
I can't wait to start crafting...

It's still raining...Thank God for this much needed rain...I am off to sit out in the porch and enjoy the sound of the rain.

I am linking up with Linda at Nifty Thrifty Tuesday..let's go visit...

Have a great week,
