Displaying beaded treasures

Thought you might like to see what I have done with the beaded pins I have either received as gifts/swaps, made myself or purchased. I think I will need another frame. This can be hung on a wall -- which I do -- and when I want to wear one, just open the frame -- it has a box like hinge on the side -- take out what I want to wear and later replace it. I got the frame at Hobby Lobby for 40% off yesterday.

(I know each person that made these through the internet -- and consider them all very special people. The dragonfly was a Christmas gift from dear friend, Lynn, in California. The fish were made by BeadBabe. Mary with the blue/green cab was created by The Lone Beader. The Paisley pin and the crystal hair face pin by Linda in Canada, the totem one, lower right, by Shari in Canada, the center right by Peggy. I cherish them all. The yellow sun at the left I made.)

I must say that I'm quite impressed with those that can bead like this. I love the scissor fobs as I'm an avid scrapbooker. The dragonfly is also a favorite. Loved reading your blog.

Thanks, Janeen -- happy to have you visit and I will scoot over to your blog tonight. The fobs are very easy to make --- honestly! And the dragonfly was a Christmas gift from dear friend, Lynn, in California. I love it too-- but I love all of them. I know each person that made them -- through the internet -- and consider them all very special people -- and they are! The fish were made by Bobbi. Mary with the blue/green cab was created by Diana. The Paisley and crystal hair pin by Linda in Canada, the totem one, lower right, by Shari in Canada, the center right by Peggy. I cherish them all. The yellow sun at the left I made.

I love your yellow sun! I should get a few of those frames, but alas, like everywhere else in my house, there's too much stuff!

Thanks, BB.
It is so nice to have these where I can see them easily. They hang above my computer desk. Bet you recognized the 2 beautiful fish ;-)
