Tell me how many beads there are
In a silver chain
Of evening rain,
Unravelled from the tumbling main...
~Thomas Lovell Beddoes

Lots of new and beautiful beads at Bumbershoot Supplies these days. We're now offering several choices of vintage 1950's West German beads. I'm showing the raindrop shaped ones in this post, but there are more, come on over and check it out!

The theatre, the theatre...

A quick reminder that Seattle Children's Theatre's Summer Season opens tonight with "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass". Plays are at 7 pm and 8:15 pm respectively. This is your chance to watch some great theatre for a great price, and even better, theatre featuring very talented youth from the greater Seattle region and beyond. For example, our own Eric, as the King of Hearts, in "Alice in Wonderland".

See you at the theatre! The shows run today through Saturday, same times each day.

Coming next, Emma as Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet. Stay tuned...

Inspiration at the beach

I took these photos at Carkeek Park, Seattle, at a recent minus tide in June.

Eric loves to see the tiny crabs.

There is all kinds of wild life under the rocks. It's like visiting another planet.

The colors are typical of what you see in Seattle in June. Still lots of grey, but beginning to lighten.

Except sometimes you get a lovely surprise jolt of color, like this wild rose...

...which looks just like these flowers at Bumbershoot Supplies. Amazing...

Shipping: the happy bag

Enroute to you, this is the first step for your purchases from Bumbershoot Designs and Supplies. We call it "the happy bag". Packages and parcels get loaded into this bag for their trip to the post office. Usually, your package is walked to the post office, by Sharon or by Sharon and Eric together. Every day. Since we go to the post office every day, your purchase is enroute to you within 24 hours of receiving your order. Currently, domestic shipments are taking 2-3 business days to arrive from Seattle, and based on the feedback we have received, international shipments seem to be arriving in a timely fashion too. But regardless of where they are going, all purchases from Bumbershoot Designs and Supplies start here, in the happy bag.
