It's that time of the year when I do a lot of supply ordering and the first thing on my list is usually silver. My wholesaler has a minimum order, so it's a huge deal, picking what I need, browsing pages and pages to get the best items at a decent price. I took a risk on a couple clasps this year, sent off the order and prayed I wasn't going to end up with 20 or 30 really awful unsuitable things. Someone must have been listening up there because I'm thrilled with the whole order - in particular the big Bali hooks - both rectangular and the semi-circles.
Meanwhile - the day job is exhausting, The Men in Workboots are coming to yank out the living room carpet and replace it with laminate flooring - which, while it is a very good thing - means that this weekend is for moving a considerable amount of furniture, bric-a-brac, and books out of (and then back into) said living room.
I just want to bead! Please universe! One little lottery! I've been such a good girl!
