A Fresh New Perspective

Guess what I found?!

Two giant grab-bags of cool plastic beads!! $2 a piece at Big Lots! Yay! I'm so excited and luckily for my bank account, easily entertained!!

I would LOVE to share them with you all at once, but you know I enjoy spotlighting them one by one! Trust me, you'll enjoy the ride!! There are some fun and funky beads in these packages!!

I noticed two particular beads right off the bat...one in each package.

The first one is this adorable "engraved" heart bead. It seemed like a much more expensive bead...a special treasure.

My first thought is that it should be paired with a tassel and some milky white and sparkly swarovski crystals, yumm!

Let me know what you think!

I would never have thought to look at Big Lots. $2 for a bag of nice beads with a lovely focal bead included, that's quite a lovely find!

The carved heart bead does look like it is worth far more than the incredibly low price of $2.00(for the one bag of beads).

omg! I have that exact same bead in purple with the design in white :D I have a few of them actually. I've already used a couple as dangles on a charm bracelet :)

Sorry, Lisa. I got mine in a mixed bag at a yardsale, I think.. it was either that or a second hand shop. totally random find.
