garden jewelry III

I like beads but don't like much self-adornary.  I like slant light in glass.  I once bid on a big box of beads at an auction and got it for a song.  I like placing blue where it has no business being.  

Cherry trees are pink in March and in August fretted with red berries, impossibly opaque beside the leaves and beads.   

Basically my littles (3, 5)  like to do my art with me so I do this because they can do it (beading doable) and they don't ruin everything (so less frustrating for me too) and they like the whole business entirely.  I call the beaded danglings "pretties" and the kids do too, as if it were perfectly natural.  Which it are, aren't it.
