Bought new beads

Yesterday morning it was much cooler.
Dean took me to the east side of Madison
and we had chinese food for lunch. After
lunch nearby I stopped at Bonjour Beads
store that opened last March. It is very
small space upstairs at an old mall
shopping center.
On the way home we stopped at Jade
Mountain Bead Company and bought
some delica beads. I loved the warm
colors. Reminds me of fall colors and
I fell in love with the shells. Loved
the color, too.
