A Wonderful Little Surprise

Mandala beaded earrings by Christine Altmiller
Came home yesterday to find a surprise package waiting, stuffed inside my mailbox.  I knew I hadn't ordered anything, so I assumed at first that it must be for my husband. Nope, it was addressed to me!    Inside, I found these little beauties from Christine over at One Kiss Creations.

Stunned and delighted, I immediately put them on and wore them for the rest of the day.  And let me tell you, they are fun to wear!  While they look substantial, they're actually really light and they have a great swing.  Every time I turned my head, I could feel them, doing a happy little dance on the end of their tethers. And they have to be one of the best uses of the little peanut beads I've seen.

Christine also included some fun, funky beads that reminded her of fish tails.  Hmmmm....

Thank you Christine!  You definitely made my day!


  1. What a great surprise - these are adorable!

  2. Fabulous colors and what a fun design! I think I need some peanut beads. There's nothing quite like a surprise package in the mailbox to pick up your day!

  3. Thanks so much for this, Karen :-) When I saw this it made my weekend complete! I bought the peanut beads without much thought as to what to do with them. Then I bought those twin hole beads...more beads I didn't know how to utilize. Then one day this happened. It all made sense as to why I had to have them. Enjoy!

    1. They all work together beautifully! And I'm tickled pink to have them as you can hopefully tell from this post. :)

      Hope you had a great weekend!
