Toronto Bead Oasis Show

The CN Tower from the very bottom. I haven't been up in years. It's tall.

MMMmmmm, this one is for Chris...yummy gulab jammun and carrot halvah which he wouldn't even try!
Amazing colors and sparkle in a Sari shop. Toronto has a fabulous "Little India". I love it. I wish I could eat there every day. Wearing these clothes.

The fabulous Lezlie of my teachers. I took a two week class with her a few years back and we had a blast!

Hey! That's me!
The show was fun, though we were in a different location which was *not great*. Thankfully we will be in our old location next time. The customers were buying, but we missed out on our usual foot traffic and impulse drop-ins.

I enjoyed lots of chatting and visiting, picked up some new colors of glass (thanks to Carolyn for pointing out the good ones!) and some silver spacers at a good price. There were lots of beautiful pearls and gemstones, including more sapphires which I visited and fondled but resisted!

Here are a few pictures of my little set-up, a little corner of home!
