I Wish It Were Summer Blog Hop

Today I am joining up again with Lisa from Pine Ridge Treasures, for the I Wish it Were Summer blog hop. 

I really do wish it were summer right now.  February is my least favorite month, thankfully it's short!  Everything is gray and icky.  I was so happy to see the bright pretty colors Lisa included in her kit.  I really wish I would have remembered to take a picture of the beads before I started.  I thought I did, but when I checked my phone there was nothing.  She sent seaglass, crystals, some jasper, and pretty silver spacers.  I had a picture in my head right away, but it took some trial and error to get it to work.  I had to take it apart twice.  Here it is, finally finished!!  I took 3 pictures and ended up liking all of them.  One in the snow because it's still winter.

One on the deck because they usually show up better there and it was actually sunny outside.

And one on our evergreen bush, because it's GREEN :-)  It is supposed to be 47 today, perfect weather in February for an I wish it were summer blog hop. Thank you Lisa, I had a lovely time playing with these beads. 

Thanks for joining me, please take a look at what the other participants did with their kits.
