A Rainy Goodbye...I'm going to miss you!


See this beautiful beaded bracelet below?


It was one of the gorgeous items that I picked for up for ONE DOLLAR at the Jewelry Show on Saturday. I bought many (and should have bought more) as I have other ideas for them...such as the topper on this gift for someone special that I will see at Silver Bella ;)

Okay nosey rosey...that's enough! ;)

I'm leaving this evening for New Orleans. I'll be flying out tomorrow morning heading for Omaha Nebraska to have a wonderful time with friends from all over the country and attend Silver Bella.

However, I think I'm the only Bella from the Gulf Coast and wouldn't you know it, that of ALL days...Hurricane Ida is sneaking on in and giving me a rainy goodbye!

Don't worry though, when I come back next week, (rain or shine) I'll be hosting a give away and I promise it will be full of goodies just like this and more!!!!

I'll have my laptop and camera with me. I hope to sneak you along and show you some fun photos!!! You know I would never have too much fun without bringing you along too, right? ;)

Gonna miss you and don't you have too much fun without me!!!
