Treasures From Missouri ~ Cabs and Beads


The picture shows the treasures I brought home from our trip to Missouri.I usually take photos of my "finds" so I don't forget where I got them.I am so thrilled with all these -- most were from one dealer at the Gem and Jewelry show -- I got a lot at the shop on Friday and more from the same people at the show on Saturday. I just love it all.

Robin said...

Ooooooooooh... BEAUTIFUL!!! And what a great idea to take a picture. Mind if I copy the idea?

I'm going to do the same thing, Robin. Our Bay Area Bead Extravaganza (BABE)is coming up in three weeks and I always forget where I bought things. What a great idea.

Of course, I'd love to snag a few of those lovelies right off the screen too. Yum!

Glad you all are enjoying my treasures.

BB, the shell piece is really gorgeous -- wish there had been more different shells -- but I am so happy with what I found --

Robin -- gosh, glad I could pass an idea on to you. I take photos of all my purchases and put them in their own file along with the name of where I got them. (and sometime the prices too) It really helps.

Arline -- I'm sure glad you enjoyed the pieces -- and know you will find photos of purchases most helpful.

I also keep a file of the pieces I have received from friends too -- my desktop has tons of files on it, and I love just clicking on the proper file and instantly (almost) finding what I am looking for.

Beautiful collection you have there. I used to have a rock, jem and bead store near out old place, it was fun to go in there, always fantastic things.

I love the price and file idea. These are such loving investments. I often have a hard time pricing. Love the cats eye cabs.
