You know when you bid on something on eBay...and you half want someone to outbit you as you can't really justify the pennies?
Well. that's what happened here. I have been after a Teresa Laliberte (http://www.lavendercreek.de/) bead for ages, I was always outbid, but after a few glasses of red my limit suddenly upped itself and I found myself the winner.
"Yeeee", I thought, then "uh oh, hubby will kick my butt when he founds out what I have spent". Ahh well, don't tell him, little beads are easily hidden :)
Isn't she just lovely though?
