Franny is here for the weekend. We didn't want to sit around the house today so we took a road trip out to Saratoga Springs, NY. A full day of shopping and some great Italian food for lunch, and then a pit stop to one of my favorite bead shops in NY state. Saratoga Beads is fairly small but they have a really great selection of things I haven't seen elsewhere. I picked up some Czech strands..
These 2 are also Czech glass, but the colors are so yummy! Earthy tones, that almost appear painted.
They also have such a great selection of German glass, and Czech glass. Of course they are all sold separately so I spent a boat load on these little teensy selections. If anyone knows of a great German glass or Czech glass supplier, please let me know. I'd love to buy more like this buy by the strand.
