Siren Song
Published On: August 12, 2011

So I’ve been led astray.  The siren song and subtle sparkle of some wee glass baubles have sidetracked me.

While we were out in Oregon and Washington we saw lots of glass fishing floats.  Not on the beach (because you know I would have snatched those up half a heartbeat), but in stores.  I’m hesitant to buy them in stores.  They’re pretty and all, but the ones in the stores somehow don’t have the same sort of backstory as one you found on the beach would have.  I will just have to keep looking and hope I find one some day (such a hardship I know).  But you know, the look of them still appeals.

So I hatched a plan.  The plan involves beads and that cording I bought on the trip.  I have no idea how well the plan will work.  So far, I have a promising swatch and an awful lot of beads jammed onto a string.  It could be the start to a genius creation, or the beginning of my descent into madness.  I’ll keep you updated.

p.s. I did not take the picture of the box of floats.  It can be found here.  I believe it is available for public use.
