Bead Challenge Winner

The lighthouse scene was the well deserved winner. The detail was fabulous.

My piece entitled "Hey Sailor", had an honorable part in the challenge and it was fun participating.The poem was written by Marzie, one of the gals that owns the Bead Shop(4 Sirious Beaders)

Here is her poem....

"Amidst the mighty crush of ocean waves that pound the rocky cliffs
And lunge and tear at it's prehistoric face
Little minnows play."

It was a cool day and the event was held in the garden at the bead shop. Along with tea, coffee and goodies, were vendors selling their wares... The first picture at the top is of a caster bean plant. It is an annual and was started from a seed. I couldn't get over the size of the leaves!!!! I gotta try growing one of those!!

A good time was had by all..

Ooooooh! It looks like it was just a fabulously fun event!! How lovely they were able to have it outside as a garden party. Love the piece you submitted. Especially love the cute little beaded fish at the bottom :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I am hopelessly behind in my BJP pages, but hope to get caught up soon!

You have a lovely, lovely blog!
