Friday feature: random

Welcome to the November edition of my monthly random blog feature!  Enjoy!

I feature a lot of Shannon's beads here, so I thought I'd feature something a little different from her shop that I put in my favorites recently.  I have a neat idea how I can use these with herringbone.  I'm trying to hold off on major bead purchases until Christmas so this item is waiting for now.

Yep, I still love daggers.

I'm still looking at purses from Jenny's shop.  My next big Etsy purchase is going to be my anniversary ring so I'm holding off on this for now but it is definitely still on my mind.  I love these little bags!

I'm always eying something from Jen's shop, too.  Love the orange!  She just announced that she's closing her shop for the whole month of December so get her goodies while you can!  She has lots of beautiful simple necklaces and earrings that would make wonderful Christmas gifts.  Of course she also has lots of beads for you to make your own gift goodies, too.

This is just because...I don't think it needs a lot of explanation.

I tie my jewelry boxes with ribbon before shipping them.  If I ever want to change up my ribbon look, this shop has so many awesome choices.

Isn't this an adorable idea?  She has them in different finishes for different types of jewelry.

  10. I like your random finds, especially that bag!

  11. These are great finds, Rose! I especially like the "beads" in the first photo (although I don't know what I'd do with them), and the shop with the sari ribbon. I bookmarked that one for another visit!

  12. I can't wait to see what you come up with using the metal links. :o) Thank you for featuring my beads and other items in your blog.

  13. Dear Rose, The ribbons are beautiful. I love the Star War pins. I still think so many little boys are Star War fans and would just love them. Blessings, Catherine xo
