PHOTO HUNTERS



Today's theme- thanks to TNchick- Hobby.
One of many for me.
First, would have to be shoe shopping, but that one got really expensive.
Second, would be gardening, but my garden sucks right now so that would NOT have been a nice photo.
Third, would be photography, but since I was using my camera at the moment I could not take a picture of it.
So here we are-Beading. This one has also gotten VERY expensive. It seems I just have to have the real stuff, you know, turquoise, amethyst,amber,real silver findings,etc. I am also not very productive as far as this goes right now. Hoping to get some real inspiration soon.

OOOH shoe shopping I didn't realise you could call that a hobby, I've always thought it was a compulsion! Love the picture.

Gattina said...

But that's a very nice hobby ! I have a friend who does it too and the results are just wonderful !

letha said...

Even the fake stuff is expensive nowadays though.

Whirlwind said...

Sounds like fun. The girls have tons of beads that always manage to find their way everywhere!

Those are great hobbies, you're right though hobbies can get expensive. Here's to hoping you are productive and are inspired! Maybe it's coz I haven't had breakfast, but those beads look good enough to eat? Happy Hunting!

That is gorgeous work. You must have the patience of Job... very tedious and intricate work... I don't think my eyes would do it any more!

My grandmother used to crochet tiny beads into necklaces. They were long and tube like, and some were a wide choker style. I kept them but never actually got to see her doing the work.

Thanks for stopping by.

Caylynn said...

Those beads look lovely! I would imagine it would get expensive, buying the real stuff.

Connie said...

I am the same way...always into something. Love crafts and collecting. I haven't tried beading...I bet yours is lovely.

Take care,
Connie

Beautiful beads! I have lots of hobbies, too. I wish I had more money to indulge in them and more space to store all the supplies! LOL Seriously, I have a ton of stash from some of my hobbies already. Do you find that you have way too many supplies? Or do you buy just enough for the projects you're currently working on?

(BTW, thanks for stopping by!)

Linda said...

I bet you make some really nice things, especially when you're using the expensive real beads like turquoise and amethyst! Very, very nice - I bet they look lovely with all those shoes you like to shop for!

Jose said...

They all sound like great hobbies. That's the beauty of it, when it comes to hobbies you can have as many as you please.

Grazzie por el commentario, cara mia

(That was my attempt at Italina, in case you couldn' tell)

YellowRose said...

Fun hobby!! I've dabbled in beading myself, it's addicting!!

Have a great weekend!

Beckie said...

Yes, most hobbies do get expensive after a while. Great picture. Thanks so much for visiting My Photo Blog.

Heidi said...

Beading sounds fun! But yes, hobbies do get expensive! Good luck with it. And I might try a hat next time, thanks for the idea!

Autumn said...

I would love to learn how to bead. I keep thinking I will take a class, but I never have time. Very nice hobby. I love the photo..My post is up too.

Hi Gewels. Thanks for visiting my photo hunt. Sorry for my late visit. I've been a little busy this past weekend and wasn't able to go on-line.

I think you're very creative to make your own jewelry. I also have a friend who loves all kinds of beads and precious stones.

Hope you'll always be inspired to make beautiful trinkets. Take care!

I would love to get into beading. I look at the magazines and it makes me want to get started on something but then I worry that I would stink at it. Maybe someday I'll give it a go.

Nice hobbies. Good job on The Hunt. Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
