Oh my my, I am so embarrassed but before this night is over I will show you my bead stash hoard. I didn't hear anything back that I knew of, so I wasn't sure I was in this hop. This is my first hop and I am so excited. Now let me get my camera and start taking picks.

Ok I am back. I thought perhaps a pick of part of my beading area might give you an idea of how many small beads I have hoarded over the years, everything you see there is filled to capacity, sorted by types. etc, pearls, crystals, rondells, mix.. you name it. I most likely have at least one of it.
The black stacker on the corner with the smaller white one on top is seed beads including the white one. I don't think I could even add one more tube to any of those drawers. Yep I am hoarding.

Lets move on ***
A few years ago I had the pleasure of attending the Santa Fe, NM Bead show. These beautiful fairies, mermaids and a few other things caught my eye, came home with me and still remain in their little box. However, I have decided they no longer will live there after this post. At least one will be coming out to my work table.
Next I decided to show you where I keep my stash hidden. Now if this box comes up missing, I will know just where to go look.............
Yep this innocent looking box sits as a stack of 3 in my living room, but inside...... is this....
Sure doesn't appear to be anything exciting does it? But every time I open this box it is like Christmas morning all over again. Each box is filled with goodies ... so I will pop the tops and show you inside a few. .. BTW your about to learn that I am also addicted to cabochons ...

This isn't even all of them. Hangs head so you can't see the look of joy on my face. I love them.
   Ok, last one of the pics, but no where near the last of my stash. I would be all day long ok, all week, maybe two weeks trying to get it out to set up.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this. As soon as I understand how to add all the other links the will be here also.
 Have a great Bead Hop.



  1. You are not alone :-) I love cabs, and looking at the special beads in my stash always makes me happy!

  2. You have an impressive bead stash. I love cabs but not sure what to do with them. I found a cool pattern for a beaded bezel that I "pinned" and hope to try soon. I am hopping the hop from the bottom up. Have a good day!

  3. You do indeed have a stash to be jealous of. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  4. Just getting around to more blog hopping! :) Wow what a great stash! My fingers are itching to touch! Thanks for sharing :)
