I Heart Macro

It is a another wonderful I Heart Macro Sunday - and it is Easter to boot!  I hope you all have a wonderful Easter Sunday with family and friends.  Mom and I will be leaving shortly to my aunt's house for a wonderful Easter Sunday lunch with the fam.  I think we are now up to 15 of us for lunch and then it is time to find Easter eggs for the kids.  Mom and I can't wait.

Okay, on to the pictures.  I thought I would share what I have been making for the past two weeks.  I am in love with my frit and here are photos of what I have been working with.


Frit in a bottle - from Glass Diversions
Color of glass I was using for the beads
Frits I have been using a lot of:

Clear frit - sort of looks like snow

Emerald Isle frit
Fiesta frit

Japanese Maple frit

Purple Delight frit

The end results - the beads.  This is just a small sampling of what I have been making.  Mom used some of my other frit beads in necklaces I posted yesterday:

I thought I would end with some cute pictures of mom's youngest cat Lily in a Bag.

Happy Easter everyone!


  1. The clear frit looks like sugar on the beads, very cool! Enjoy your day

  2. Beautiful beads- It is really fun to see the frit and I wish I could watch you make the beads. Have a wonderful Easter lunch and fun. The cat is hilarious. Don't you just love the silly things they do? So entertaining.

  3. Beautiful beads and I love the cat in the bag pictures...what is it about cats and bags - they just seem to love them. Happy Easter to both of you!

  4. The frit pictures are great! But, my fave are the kitty-in-a-bag shots. It never ceases to amuse me when cats get little nutty.
    Happy Easter!

  5. It looks like Easter frit! LOL the kitty - my kiids do the same thing - the packaging is always better isn't it? Beautiful beads!!!

  6. Lovely frit and pretty, pretty beads!

  7. Beautiful pictures! Lily is adorable, too. Isn't it funny how they ALWAYS get inside of bags and boxes? Have a great week and Happy Easter!

  8. Oh love the pictures but I want want want those beads!!!! Gorgeous!!!!!!
