Today is December 25 and I get to open gift number one in a gift exchange hosted by Lorelei Eurto. Gift one is from Lorelei!
It is a set of 10 tin bead caps with a lovely blue on off-white flower design. I can’t wait to make some blue and white beads to go with them. I believe Lorelei hand cut the discs from old vintage floral tea tins.
