DelicaBeads_MoreInspirationMy neighbor had a birthday yesterday (Happy Birthday, Julie!) and received a bouquet of gorgeous roses of which I am the fortunate beneficiary because she left for vacation today.  The fragrance is like a breath of summer – most welcome in our midwest winter weather.  I have them on my beading table so I can enjoy them as I work.  I seldom work in pinks and reds, but I am inspired by these blooms and have gathered my collection of  vivid pinks, corals, roses, and lipstick reds Delica beads.  My next beading project will definitely include some of these colors!
