Although I had a minor mishap with the knife while opening one of my packages, I'm so excited about my mail today!

First up was a gorgeous artisan bead from GlassBonBon on Etsy that I had waited over a month to buy since I was on a bead ban at the end of last year. Thankfully it was still there January 1st  Laughing I was hoping that it would match a blue desert that I have, and it does.

Second was a bead that's been on my wish list since shortly after I started collecting, the Viking Knot.

Great mail day today! P1140010

I quickly popped them onto my bangle, along with the blue desert and my clover. Eventually I may build a bracelet with these soft greens, but for now this is perfect!!

Lovely combo congrats on your viking knot - I had it on my wishlist as well and your bonbon bead looks great with the blue desert. I keep looking at bonbon's beads daily and made many spontaneous purchases from her last year - I live near her so I guess 1 day shipping times are not a good thing if you try NOT to spend too much money on beads....

Thanks everyone! I'm so happy with how the combo came together, it feels like it was all just meant to be.

Well I'm glad that something kept you from buying the GlassBonBon bead bubbagump! Laughing I honestly was surprised that it wasn't snatched up before I could get to it. Her picture of it is much better than mine too.

One day shipping would be dangerous minty! Shocked I sometimes do have to ask myself whether I really want a bead or just want it now ... the fact that it takes a week for most packages to get to me can be useful as a way to curb my spending, although it really is frustrating when I want the bead AND I want it now!  Laughing

Thank you every one, I really am so excited about the knot. I've been wearing it every day since it arrived Very Happy

The last two days I've been wearing it in a bit of a different combination.
