Bead Table Wednesday and Other Bead-y News

My bead table is a little sparse today. I'm just not feeling very inspired. However, one of my best friends came over Halloween night and gifted me with these beauties for my birthday.
She was so worried I wasn't going to like them since they're not the vibrant colors that are usually typical for me. She was right about one thing: I don't like them, I LOVE them!
Thank you AFA!!
