We are getting ready to visit some dear friends - so of course I wanted to make some baubles to take as gifts.  A while ago I bought a unique focal from the lovely Erin at Treasures Found.  As often happens, I ended up using what was collected around my beading area - in this case, a set of 6 lavender beads that I made. They are creamy opaque encased in clear - a favorite combo of mine :-)

We have made many, many trips with these dear friends, from Italy to Portland, so don't you think the quote on the back is perfect?

I am not sure what their girl will like, but went with the traditional pink and lace.  Could be girly, could be hip vintage-y, so we'll see how it goes over :-)

And in the process of creating and cleaning up a bit, I finally unwrapped some new glass I bought thanks to an awesome gift certificate from my wonderful Aunt Suzanne...so I am looking forward to coming home again to play!
