The Recycled Bead Caper
My darling, charming and funny friend, Miss Julep (of Yarn Juleps on the Veranda) has appointed herself the "Collector of Mardi Gras Beads". Last night was the first parade of the season and Miss Julep has gathered together a small group of Bead Minions and together they are collecting as many beads as they can to ship to us here in Idaho so that we, in turn, can recycle them and throw them out at the Fiddlers Festival Parade in June. Check out her blog for great pics and progress reports on the giant pile of beads getting ready to make it's way accross country. So far, they have collected 16 pounds of beads!
