Ghanaian Powder Beads!

Back in January, my mom took a trip to Niger.  She picked up a couple strands of beads for me, and just sent them last week.  They came in the mail this morning, and look!  Aren't they cool?  I don't have any ideas yet, but I'm pretty excited to have them.   


She said someone told her that they were made in Ghana.  I did a little bit of internet research, and found Ghanaian powder beads that look to be in the same family.  So that's my story - my mom went to Niger and brought back two strands of Ghanaian powder beads for me.  

In other news, my dad just got back from Kenya, and sent me a box of 100 tea bags!  And I just got back from New Mexico, and have 8 tamales in the freezer (there were a dozen..hehe).

You have a whole international theme going in your house, Ginny! The beads are great. I'm sure you'll have fun creating with all those colors and patterns.
