Little Pleasures

I went shopping at Walmart and at Michael’s some time ago. I don’t shop a lot. And when I do go out to some store I rarely buy stuff. Window shopping is more my thing. Besides, I’m broke. 

Anyway, I collected a lot of source material at Wal-mart, then went to Michael’s. Now, I love craft stores. There are places to get the stuff they sell for cheaper, but I just like walking around in a craft store. The dollar  bins are the best part.

Isn’t it pretty? They also have it in red.

It would look really good with some black and silver swirled beads that I have.

Here’s another of my favorites:

They cost about 3 or 4 dollars each. Not bad!

When I get a job, I want to go back and buy some of this stuff. But I always say that, and I never do. 

Just look at the air bubbles in that last piece! Gorgeous!
