I have new goodies to share!! Before you scroll down and see the photos that give away what these little guys are... take a guess. What do you think they could be?

A few weeks ago, Vickie of HippKittyBeads, shared a pair of these on the LampworkEtc forum. I love Vickie's work... I love her attitude... I love her style... she just rocks. She was gracious enough to share with the forum a quick note about how she made her version of these little gems. Check out THIS THREAD to see what I am talking about.

So have you figured out what they are? They are posts!! Post earrings that it. No hooks... how cool is that!?! I don't know why I didn't think of these sooner. They are so fun to make and even funner to wear. And you know what... I think their timeing is perfect. With winter on the way, we'll all be wearing turtlenecks and heavy sweaters... dangly earrings can get caught in the fibers so, these will work great.

When I was working on these beads, I found I loved the look of the glass wound around the mandrel end. So for most of them, I left the coils rather then heat the bead super hot and let the layers mold together. I have made about a dozen so far. I think I can get the beads for a dozen made in a signle torch session pretty easily. So, I plan on making these to take to the Joolz Trunk Show in a few weeks and I'll make some up for my website too.

Do you think I need to sleep more? My stars, look at those bags, yikes! And do you think I should get my eyebrows waxed? LOL! But aren't those "Posters" the cutest!! Yeah, that is their name... "Posters".

This kids had a blast trick or treating last night and we are up to our eyeballs in candy. Oh the horror... I think I need to take and donate a few bowls of candy to somewhere... either that or put that weight loss ticker pack up on my blog, lol. All that chocolate will go straight to my hips!

Off topic - but the "Candy Witch" comes to our house after Halloween. Our daughter gets to keep about 10 pieces of candy and then she leaves the rest for the Candy Witch who trades it for a toy. The leftover and Candy Witch candy goes to school for the "treat box." Just a thought!

Great suggestion! Unfortunately, my boys are at a very skeptical age... I doubt it would fly for them. I was thinking of asking them if they might want to donate some to the local fire department. We could all take a walk into town and give a big bag to those fire truck guys!!
