blooming

Today I went to my favourite bead store to find flower cabochons. I was looking for a turquoise dahlia flower for a ring and a couple of small pink roses for earrings. They were having a buy-one-get-one-free sale on resin flowers, so I got the roses for free! :D

And because the cabochons looked so sweet, I decided to take some pictures of them with the Zumi.


The roses were actually more of a coral pink. Maybe the colour will show up better against my skin, when I wear them as earrings! :D Right now I’m waiting for the E6000 to dry. Yes, today I splurged on a tube of industrial-strength super-glue, because the thought of losing part of an earring in the shower or on the street is too devastating. So I think it will be worth the $8 I spent on it. It’s supposed to take 48 hours to set, so… I have about 40 hours left to wait :/ And now I have enough glue to make hundreds more pairs of earrings, or hundreds of rings, or pendants, or whatever I will need industrial-strength glue for. Hmm. Does glue expire?

While Zumi was out I also took some pictures of my African violet. It stopped flowering for a year, and then after I trimmed it a couple of weeks ago it began blooming happily (and rapidly) again :D I was surprised how painterly these pictures looked.

 

 

More buds!

 

Have a happy Thursday!
