Southern California Bead Shop Hop Is Coming

The Southern California Bead Shop Hop is coming September 7-9, 14-16, and 21-23; three fun-filled weekends to trek around So-Cal in search of beady treasure!  

Will you visit one, two or all the stores in the hop? Great prizes and tons of fun. 

Each store will be decked out to represent their favorite movie. Go see what the stores are doing!

The event is sponsored by Beadsmith.

Watergirl Supply will be at Garden of Beaden on Saturday September 8, 10 am to 7 pm.   I am an eclectic collector so you will find religious artifacts, vintage brass, mid-century brass and copper charms, western charms, rhinestone components, military badges, vintage czech glass beads and buttons, and ribbon.

Fall 2012 Colors

Here they are the Fall 2012 colors from Pantone.  I love the four middle colors; tangerine tango, ultramarine green, bright charteuse, and  olympian blue (no surprise there).  On the whole this is a wonderful selection for the upcoming fall/winter season.

Ok, so which is your favorite or favorites?
