    I know I have mentioned before that I have a ton of beads, well...
    Here's a few bags of them. This is probably the third and hopefully the last time I've separated them mainly by color.

    Now the task is to continue sorting by color then separate them by what they are; glass, real gems, semi precious, precious, pearls, faux pearls, silver, gold, jade plastic & wood etc...once that's completed, I have to cross my fingers that I don't get back into them to make anything. That's a great way to not let go of them one more time ;)

    The good thing is knowing I've created so many gifts throughout the years and always enjoyed doing that. The beads in this group range from somewhere around the 1920's (or earlier) all the way to...wow, probably to 1999 which means a century's worth of beads! Plus, this is not all that's here...there's more but I can only show 4 photos!!! Imagine? That's just ridiculous! haha

    Curious to know, does anyone else here have a lot of beads hanging around? How about a show of hands!!! ;)

    Wonder what I'll fill all that empty space with?!? :)))

    Enjoy!

      Why aren't my photos showing???
    2. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 3 years ago
      The photos were too big...so you don't even actually see all there is! I honestly am not a hoarder!!! haha

      I wanna take a swim in those! :-) Wow, impressive collection. I still haven't found a way to sort out / tidy up my bead collection so that all of them are visible and accessible. Headache! But fun too :-)

      Beads no, brooches yes. All in plastic bags, stored in boxes, wish I had a way to display them. I would LOVE to go through your collection. Looks like hours of fun. :)

      treasure trove!!
    6. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 3 years ago
      Big that's funny...you probably could swim in them! Lol thank you for the laugh!
    7. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 3 years ago
      Nutsy, come on over! I have frames too that you could put back to back and make your own shadow box for displaying all your lovely brooches! Just put hinges on one side, a latch on the other and there you have it! Xoxo

      Thank you lentils for the love and comment. Much appreciated!

      I am clapping my friend - YES, I have a lot of beads! in maybe 12 dresser drawers...?? I have 2 full-size dressers devoted to beads., not clothes like normal people. I get a little sick when I realize how crazy my obsession is. LOL Share!
    10. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 3 years ago
      hahaha! First of all Val, let's get this straight! Normal is only a dial on a dryer! haha Everything else falls into the "it's just what I do" category! So now that we have that straight, I had to cut these photos down as they wouldn't upload because of the size. I also have more...How do you spell scream??? haha

      Thank you all for the love, I was on my mobile trying earlier to work this but for me it's not something I'm able to do easily. so...here I am to say thanks and tell you all I appreciate it!

      Normal is only a dial on the dryer! Maybe that will be on my headstone instead of "it took me longer than I thought it would". XOXO
