Friday Favorites

Ah yes, Friday is here already. How did THAT happen? I've been wanting to get out to my glass lab to make beads, but my other commitments have kept me from doing so. Tomorrow I'll be at a glass studio in San Mateo, CA so I'm sure I'll get in some torch time there. It's the montly meeting of our Society of Glass Beadmakers of Northern California, where we gather for chit chat, sharing of our beads, great demos, and great food.

But right now, I'm going to present you with this week's Friday Favorites. Today's color scheme is called "adobe arizona desert pop" - now there's a mouth full! It's a scheme I'm very familiar with, since I love nature as well as autumn. When I lived in Connecticut, autumn was my favorite season - the cool crisp air with warm sunshine beating down on my back, the smell of crunchy fallen leaves, hot apple cider - OK, enough with the reminiscing. Here are the colors, along with my favorite picks. I've included the names of the shops whose items I've listed, from left to right.  Enjoy your shopping trip!

1.  tattoo dreams
2.  OrganiCeramic

3.  golly bard
4.  Mary Williams Photography

5.  Luster
6.  Tocadora Leather

7.  Beads 4 You
8.  the Mincing Mockingbird

9.  Portland Fiber Gallery
10. ReClaim2Fame

Here are some items I've made that fit into today's scheme.  I think I'm going to have to revisit this color scheme out in my wet lab - I need more of that bright yellow/orange pop!

And that wraps up the first part of my Friday. Now go have a happy and creative day!
