Oh, how gorgeous, Renate!! The snowy scene looks so very romantic! and of your beadshow finds, I really, really like the color combination of the first set of beads. Those are my colors... Stay warm and enjoy the snow for me!! Love, Silke

the last picture is very interesting.. how do you call the dark grey beads? they looks like little pieces of mirrors..

I love the photograph. You live in an absolutely beautiful place. And the beads ae just gorgeous. The peridot/garnet batch got my heart beating fast!

sharon said...

Just like you said Renate...all these photos are too beautiful for words!

So wonderful treasures Renate, the beads are gorgeous, Barbara is right, garnet and peridot sound lovely.
I believe that it is pyrite on last picture, no ? And maybe moonstone, garnet and some blue chalcedony ?

Renate, your bead show haul is FABULOUS! Love all those pearls and the labradorite strand is to die for. That's my favorite stone.

Renate, these beads are gorgeous!! So bright and vibrant and some so serene, like the sea!!

You are still covered in a winter wonderland and while it looks cold, it's certainly a beautiful photograph...and these beads are just what we both need to help fight those January/February blahs (I dislike February too but it's a shorter month and therefore I feel I cope better!! lol!!). These beads are just what I needed to see this morning -- bleak and grey outside and warm and hopeful inside!! ♥

I love the colors of your new beads. I can't wait to see what you do with them. You live in such a beautiful part of the world...even in the cold, I like it.

Your photo of you house is just lovely...the yellow is so great. How wonderful it would look framed.

Great bead finds, I love the labradorite!

We almost look like you! Have you heard???? We have been below freezing for ......too many days~lol. We are not used to it~at all. I do love seeing the ice crystals on my windshield though. They have a personality all their own.
In regard to your bead show haul, looks like you had much fun. I will be "hauling" in a couple of weeks myself. Not that I NEED any!!

The snow is so beautiful and pristine. What a treat for me because I see so little here.

lilylovekin said...

Are not those bead shows just wonderful and dangerous places. Your choices were fantastic.

Some wonderful finds and lovely snow!

Hello Renate!
Your home is so sweet...just look at the snow and the lovely yellow colored walls.
I love your bead pictures- how you grouped them by color. Was the show nearby? What fun it would be to attend a bead show with you!!! I'm glad to see you enjoyed some "bead therapy"! :-)

Ooh, icy snow and gorgeous bead booty! Throw in some hot cocoa and I'm there!

Studio Sylvia said...

What an exciting haul! I can't even imagine the snow.

Pretty Things said...

OH the BEADS! And what lovely compositions you put them into.
