Bead Table Wednesday

It's Bead Table Wednesday and today's edition is coming to you from my temporary studio in Michigan.  I enjoyed sitting outside on the deck this morning and snapping these photos. Loved the chilly morning photography session - heavenly!

These are beads that are on the cover of my book and can now be found in my Etsy shop.

I also pulled out some autumn colored beads in coppers and purples.  Loving this combination for fall - it reminds me of stormy October skies with bright orange leaves clinging to the trees.

And here is some of the flora from my sister's garden.  It's her flowers that are featured in the garden section of my book.  I'm staying with my sister for a few weeks until Jess moves up here with the rest of our belongings.  My sister is as talented in the garden and kitchen as I am in the studio - it's a very enjoyable visit.

And the view from my studio.  I love looking out the window and seeing water.  In fact, nothing makes me happier - except for the first day I look out and see snow - I can't wait!

Here is a short video of my studio set up - my apologies for the video cutting off at the end.  I'm still learning how to put together the videos.

So that's it for my first Michigan edition of Bead Table Wednesday.  

Check out the flickr group to see what other bead addicts are working on this week.

Lovely beads!!!! I looked for your book in Barnes and Noble the other day but was bummed they didn't have it yet.

I can only imagine the inspiration you are blesed with just by looking out your studio window.
