A Bead A Day...And Spring Angels

Banner Haus News and Musings

Well, I'm a bit irked. I swallowed a vintage bead yesterday. It was a Swarovski, dearies. A SWAROVSKI!

A milky violet one, too!

That makes a bead-lover just cry. And no, let's have no talk of bead rescue, thank'ee.

It made me so nervous that I made another pot of coffee. Which made me REALLY nervous.

Lesson: Don't use yer teeth as tools. Especially if yer a klutz.


A kind word is like a spring day.

    Um???? What was the bead doing in your mouth little donkey? I get the teeth as tools but to have it go from teeth to swallowing is something. You may need to break out the ole flail for this one . . . for some of the impending comments. Hee hee.

    Ok I'll quit. I am really sorry you swallowed a nice crystal bead. Bad stuff indeed! I hope tomorrow fairs better. Have some nice egg salad sandwiches. They are so tasty and nice it will make you forget all about the crystal!

  • Julia

    You swallowed a SWAROVSKI?!!!! Well I hope this latest crisis passes quickly for you (pun intended, LOL) My grandmother is so fussy, when she buys new clothes, she sits and cuts off all the tiny thread ends from the garment and puts them in her mouth so as not to make a mess, and when I was little and watched her do this I thought she *ate* thread!!!!

  • Rosemary

    OMG Holly!!
    I can't believe you swallowed a bead.
    You are right, never use your teeth for tools.
    I'm glad you didn't swallow a diamond.
    Chat soon,

  • cinner

    Oh no, why does it always have to be your favorite. I am enjoying your new blog. Hope you are well. Happy Spring

  • Dawn

    LOL! Sorry for laughing Holly, but you reminded me of when my younger sister swallowed a little triangle piece from the trivial pursuit game. Someone forced it in the holder wrong and she tried to suck it out! That was 15 or 20 years ago and she still can't play board games without being teased about it.

    Hope the dogs enjoyed their eggs. I was looking for a button for you for my side bar and settled on the annoyed girl in the purple dress. Hope you like it.

  • Nydia

    Thanks for stopping by at Lucas' nest! :o) Yes, that's a Sponge Bob chocolate egg you can see! My brother brought for him! :o)


  • Jacquelyn Stager

    I'm sorry for laughing....but I just can't stop. Hope all's well that ENDS well...
