Something bright and cheery!

Yes, this is totally different to my usual beads but sometimes it's nice to go a little bit mad with the glass and make something out of the ordinary!

Why a fairytale-type toadstool?

Well, for Christmas, my friend Kerryn sent me a cute little purse made by Lyn of Florspace. I was looking at Lyn's blog the other day and she'd posted a photo of a whole batch of purses featuring bright and colourful mushrooms. They looked so vibrant and cheery I just had to have a go at making a glass one!

I'm off to Cambridge tomorrow so I'll see you next week. Have a great weekend!
