Dear Beading Friends,
I have been dreaming about how to decorate my"studio"when I have finished sorting it out.I am going to Lisbon,Vigo,La Coruna and Gibralter in the summer and hope to add some goodies to my beading stash and perhaps some artwork for my studio.We went to Barcelona late last year and I found a wonderful ephemera market in a square just off La Ramblas.They were selling stamps,bottle tops,all sorts of goodies.Total heaven.I did only find one bead shop in the Gothic Quarter.Rumour has it that there are at least four of them.I hope to find some bead shops in Portugal to add to my stash.I hope perhaps to find a flea-market or antique fair.However that is weeks away so just get on with sorting things out and get the paint brushes out.I have my expo soon so will let everyone know how things are going on the creative front.Love to my beading buddies,Anne.
