'Green Goblin' and Prize Draw Winner

Lampwork Glass Beads

When Chris saw these lime green and orchid pink beads he said they reminded him of the Green Goblin from the Spider-Man comics and yes, he's right, look:


The pink spacers are enamelled; not my usual dusting of enamel but a total two-coat covering. This set of 'Green Goblin' beads is available right now in my bead shop.

Now, to prize draw shenanigans. 

There were thirty-seven entries so I used a random number generator which chose ...

... number sixteen. I counted sixteen comments down the comments list and the winner is Jo Thoday. Well done, Jo! Please email me with your address and I'll get your blue beads in the post to you.

It's been a lovely couple of days. The local cherry trees are in full bloom and they really are an amazing sight. I like to stand underneath them and look up at all the branches laden with pretty white blossoms and they look so beautiful against the clear blue sky.

Cherry blossom

Last year I stopped when I was walking past the cherry trees and picked one of the cherries. It looked delicious and I popped the whole thing in my mouth, bit into it and URGH! It was the sourest, most bitter cherry in the whole world ever and I had to spit it into the piece of paper I had in my pocket which I soon realised was my shopping list. So that was annoying and I shan't be sampling the cherries again this year.

But still, pretty blossoms.

That's enough waffle from me. Enjoy your Friday night!
