Treasure Nest Tuesday #3: Bunches of Beads

Beaded necklaces are my ultimate love. My collection cascades in a chaos of color and glittering from a coffee mug peg rack thingy that I painted a glossy blood red. I gush because it's my favorite little area in the house.

It's also a strange outlet for my OCD impulses: they are color sorted:) The red plastic ones blurred on the far left were my grandmother's from the depression, and the coppery ones in sharp focus are my favorites- a find from "Past and Present," a ywca store that funds transitional housing for women and families who have left the shelter.

  1. They're lovely! I'm sorry I didn't know you when my great-grandmother passed away, or I'd have made sure some of her collection got to you :)

    I have her pink rhinestone necklace and earrings and while I don't wear them often (the earrings are clip-ons and I have yet to get them changed over), they always make me think of her.
