Lavender Beads

Receiving this package in the mail was an experience all on it's own.
I wish you could smell it... as soon as I ripped open the
bubble mailer, I was hit with the lovely sweet aroma of lavender.
And why not?
Andrea's shop is called Lavender Beads.
Why wouldn't it smell just like that?
I open the box and nestled into a pile of 
dried lavender was my beads in their little organza bag.
Andrea's lampwork beads are gorgeous. And unique.
I have seen nothing quite like this on Etsy or online.
We traded. I sent her a necklace and she sent me
a set of her small lavender bud beads. I can't wait
to use them.I'm thinking I'll snag two for a pair of earrings
for myself.

  5. When I smell Lavender I am instantly transported to a happy place. These beads took me there as well. I plan to visit her shop when she gets back from vacation.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
