Beads from Kerri Fuhr

I created this lovely, long necklace with lampwork beads by Kerri Fuhr. Visit her here: I got the majority of the beads from a set I purchased from her at Bead and Button this year. When I got home, I purchased one more dragonfly from her Etsy site. I put the necklace together with some Vintaj brass dragonflies, vintage Czech glass beads, and some chain. I love how it turned out and I get tons of compliments every time I wear it!

Check out my new scrapbook shelf!

I have been eyeing this beauty at Pier One since Spring! It has finally gone on sale so I picked it up with the intention of using it to hold all of my treasured scrapbooks. I like how there is a tilted shelf as well as 2 flat surfaces to add interest in displaying. I especially love the distressed teal color since I knew my regal peacock book ends would look perfect on it and how it would "pop" in my mustard Moroccan themed bedroom. The only problem is, it is so full already! So I think it will only solve my scrapbook storage problem for a short time......
