Hi Everyone!
It is freezing cold here today. OK we don't have the blizzards some of you are enduring, however, cold is cold. So it was a nice warm visit with my beading pals in a local restaurant here in Florence. I know quite a few people here but there are only 4 people that are in my circle of "Friends". It was nice to get all of us together today. We ate Italian food with good conversation. We are also know as the "Bad Bead Girls of Florence"  Some of these people you may know by name.

Starting close up and the oldest (young) person of our group is Roma. She is the delight for all of us. Then me. OK OK I know I take the worst photos EVER!!!!! This doesn't even look like me. LOL  on the other side of me is Kelly Angelly. Well know bead artist. Across from Kelly is Charmain Pesnell winner of last years Toho competition. I was her guest for the trip to Japan. We had soooooo much fun!!!! Next to Charmain is well know glass artist extraordinaire Denise Sanders. We always bring things to share and today I brought my leather masks that are going to the Art Gallery. I only brought in three. The girls were so nice to model them for you.

So that is what I did today. What did you do???

Honor and Integrity in Life in Art


  1. Very nice Nicole. Looks like a lot of fun was had. I like that you have outings such as this. Your masks are great. Thanks for sharing.

  2. You do not take bad pictures!!
    I love the masks.
    What a wonderful way to spend the chilly day.
    Love and hugs.

  3. I remember from a previous post how you met your "Bad Bead Girls from Florence." I don't think they were called that then..I guess you shook them up when you came to town!

  4. :( I so wish I was there too!!!

  5. Looks like you had fun! It's so nice to be able to spend time with like-minded friends! I love the masks!

  6. Looks like fun! If only I lived a few miles closer! The masks look awesome.
