Shopping Saturday

What a great Saturday! I got to spend the day shopping for stone and other fun things with my hubby and someone very special to us. That someone is my husbands cousin, my matron of honor, and if you a regular reader of my blog she is also the Nana of my Christmas Angels. By the way she is also an incredible seamstress, the Angels are wearing dresses their Nana made.
We took her to her first gem and bead show today, she was like a kid in the candy store. We all had a wonderful time shopping, talking and just being together. Sam, thanks for spending the day with us! Let's do it again, soon!!!
After the show we stopped at one of my favorite shops Bead Bullies in Tigard, Oregon. The owner Kari is wonderful! While hubby and Sam were exploring, she was showing me boxes and boxes of vintage Czech glass cabochons. So, of course I just had to get a few for myself. If you get the chance to visit Bead Bullies I promise you won't be disappointed!
