Jump  About a week ago, the loveliest surprise arrived. Wee DING DONG! Wow Where to begin... Well...



Pony Bunny dance   THANK YOU THANK YOU, SMAUG!! Smaug Taz Grumble dance 

Her generosity really has me speechless (for quite a while I was on the floor in shock)!! Remember at the holidays last year when we had the challenges? The mailman never delivered my prize. Sad A case of mistaken identity I'm sure...he probably had it out for someone and had a bit of confusion... Evil or Very Mad oooorrr a weak moment of indulgence Twisted Evil 

Splinty was so sweet and attentive all this time and trying to track it down...THANK YOU so much, Splinty dear heart!  

AND then what was just a minor stroke of bad luck turned into something beyond lucky... Excited Excited 

I would like to share with you this lovely Faerybeads surprise. Fairy Please excuse the long-winded gobs of gushing...

A lovely bead and yummy yummy chocolate and coffee flavored candies (which of course didn't stand a chance!) Drool  THANK YOU SO MUCH Smaug and Faerybeads!

What a FAERY surprise!  9151989263_e6d0170b9a_c

This is the most touching surprise. I just absolutely LOVE it!! The fine and intricate detail is amazing...it is so soft and delicate, yet really heavy at the same time Woot ...I swear it looks like the gorgeous petals are constantly moving in a subtle breeze.

The balance of gentleness and weight has been reminding me constantly that even when we might feel our most delicate, there is steadfast support within and around us. Daisy white 

As happens to us all, when it rains it pours; things have been unbelievably hectic lately...last minute big-ish decisions...packing and moving stuff, trying to finish my dissertation, having hair-raising dentist conundrums (I kept the bead in my palm during some of these moments), starting my summer job...and and and...

this parrot tulip bead really truly has been giving me sense of peace and calm...i keep it by my computer while feverishly writing...

In fact, b/c i've been packing, it was the only bead i had w/me for a while b/c the others had already been packed and moved. here's how i wore it last week (don't worry, the ribbon was safety-pinned closed)


What a FAERY surprise!  9151970901_3a19625fbb_c

i'd been thinking of the TBs tulip in honor of my granny who loved tulips bc it's so gorgeous on everyone's bracelets. (tangent: there was even a pbs program on the history of the tulip and how coveted it was when introduced but the TBs one wasn't for me, though absolutely stunning on every combo i see I love you I love you, b/c i wanted some texture (but how could i want or even expect texture on a tulip, Ouch  i'd often wondered).

you might imagine how beyond perfect this parrot tulip is!! I love you I love you 

Here's how I wore it today (after being re-united w/my beads)...

I'm afraid this might be my most gorgeous and detailed bead! The pictures don't do it justice. It has really restored that sense of magic and wonder that comes with the early days of collecting!! I just had to get a faerybeads fairy to float atop the tulip on the chain ... i'm sure she will be right at home!

I can't say enough about how amazing this forum is and how unbelievably kind and generous folks are with their time and their passions. Thank you so much Smaug, thank you thank you thank you for this lovely lovely lovely gift. You'll never know how much it means to me. I will treasure it always. Daisy white

That bead is so amazingly beautiful, definitely at the top of my wish list as well, but you have also done it justice with such a perfect fantasy necklace combination!

Congratulations, Plumbun!!
