Lucky Girl

Boy am I ever on a winning streak lately! Which I must admit feels awesome - especially while working on taxes!

I won this lovely vessel from Janel at Janel Dudley Beads (who I met in person this weekend! She's as lovely as can be and I so enjoyed having a glass buddy to share tips with!). Janel held a contest on her blog to find out about an antique bead she had. Nosey Nellie (me!) naturally had the answer. But the drawing was fair and square and her kitty picked me as the winner... you can read the hilarious blog entry about the choosing of the name here.


The photo does NOT do it justice...isn't that the case with all lampwork? In person, the pale colors range from a pretty baby blue to a smattering of olive. It's a stunner! I just love and treasure it!

But that's not all. Melissa Mesara at One Earred Pig was having a drawing for the followers of her Facebook Fan page. And what do you know? I won the drawing. She didn't really advertise what she was mailing out and my heart leaped a beat when I opened the box and saw this:


It's so gorgeous!

Nothing like having some new glass to sport about town on these lovely spring days!
