cranberry beads

I absent-mindedly grabbed this big beaded necklace in the checkout line at a thrift store. The old ladies that work there, bless their hearts, are so sweet, but efficient, they are not. This outfit was from Haircut Day a couple weeks ago. Stopped in Loehman's afterward and my heart went all aflutter with the marvelous deals to be had. Forgot how much I loved that place. Will share the spoils of said trip as soon as the weather turns.

  7. What a delightful necklace. Hope it doesn't dangle around too much. It looks like a dangler to me. Or is this just a problem I encounter with jewellery?

    Those little old thrift store ladies always make me laugh, sometimes they pull things out and insist I buy them.
