For the past year or so I've been wanting to start making jewelry. In the spring I bought all of these pretty spring and summer-like colored beads but like everything else, never got around to it. This week I finally did and I'm having so much fun with it!

I still have lots to learn but didn't think these came out too bad.
Would you wear one? Be honest now because I'm thinking of just maybe giving one away...stay tuned!

If anyone has any neat tips or a resource they would like to share, I would love to know!

and the decision is.....

...the bench stays!

After leaving the wicker seat for a day, I missed the bench {even though the cats preferred that comfy cushion!!!}. Maybe it was because I was just used to it but the majority of you did vote for the bench to stay....thanks for your help everyone!!!!

opinions needed...ASAP!!!!

I haven't posted in long time and planned on my newest post being about how great my summer was or a "welcome fall" post, but what I really need here ladies is an opinion! I've had this bench in my mudroom for years. I absolutely love it! It was the first new purchase I made for this house right before we moved in. It's made from an old door and I found it on EBAY. I am able to stash the cat food underneath it and some baskets for my boys cleats (this is football season you know!)

Last night I had a thought! I love, love, love black wicker and have it outside. I thought, why not bring it in for the winter, put the bench in my bedroom and then put things back in the spring when it's warm out again.

What do you think? I'm not sure but need to decide before everyone gets home because I have the other bench sitting in the middle of my kitchen and if you saw the size of my kitchen you would know that it pretty much takes up the entire room.
So I would love to hear what any of you think!
