If you have ever been in our notion room, you know that we have beads from floor to ceiling - literally - we are busting out at the seams. Thursday, as Dawn was quietly enjoying her lunch - the shelf filled with dozens of apothecary jars of old beads - came crashing down. The heart-stopping noise surrounded Dawn and, like a trooper, she picked up her lunch and walked outside (mainly to avoid the layer of dust that came up from the crash!) She called me at home and said the strangest thing had just happened at the shop. When I asked her how bad was it -and she didn't answer - I knew it was bad. JZ and I rushed over and we all went right to work cleaning it up and in swooped my mom and dad and put all the beads and broken glass in their car and drove off to start the work of removing the glass shards and then separating the beads. So - the pink and cranberry and peach (all my favorite colors!) beads - will have their second life - appearing back at the shop soon. Mom for this, you get Sorter of the Year Award!
