If you ever want to leave me anything in your will, this would be it. :-) I am having a tiny heart attack right now after looking at these photos!


Yep, definitely sounds like the Magpie in Ethel! I really love the all blue round beaded one with the amaller beads wrapped around it. Haven't seen any like those.Of course I haven't seen much of the other ones either except for the plain colored all one size beads.I don't know why but I sort of picture you sitting in your studio with those beads on like a string of pearls LOL
Thanks for sharing!


i love those garlands but have only found them once out here. not even in antique malls!


Gorgeous! I think my blood pressure just went up a bit.


The indent ones are my favorite but I must say I am taken with your lime green ones. Gorgeous color. Having them lined up in those cutlery boxes makes them look like a floor display at the department store. I have only found a few of these and certainly need more. Smiles...Renee


I love those double ones where it is like two indents hooked together. Oh heck, I love them all. You can just never have too many sparkly things!

Whenever you put up a post about one of your collections, I am at a loss for words....and ask anyone who knows me that unusal!! Love these!! chris


One of my favorite things ever. No matter how much I collect, I always want to find more! Love this!


YIKES! That's a lot of mercury! I think I have a temperature!

Oooooo, every bit as pretty and shiny as diamonds! Rarely ever see this stuff around here, but when I do, I get quite giddy!

This collection just zoomed to the top of the charts. And is making me want to sort all my mercury glass beads.

I'm wiping the drool off my chin. Seriously beautiful eye candy. Your collections always make me smile.

They are all so wonderful, I can't choose a favorite. My husband told me the other day we don't need any more Christmas or Halloween decorations. I of course think he's mistaken. I do believe I could find some room for some of these.


Never see those but of course anything that looks like that would be Mardi Gras beads and we're are sooooo sick of them down here (except when we're beating other people off with a stick to catch them at parades). I'm about ready to bring out my Magpie Ethel Halloween spun-head figurines but am wondering if you have some new ones for this year? I'm displaying them at the antique mall but they're NOT for sale!


Such a wonderful and so pretty collection!! So many neat colors and shapes. Hope you have a great day! xo Holly


Wow, such eye candy! How many do you use to decorate trees with at Christmas??
