Gifts From My Canadian Neighbors

It was a great mail day yesterday.
This unusual bead by Canadian bead artist Julie Wong Sontag from Uglibeads showed up yesterday.
here is her facebook link and her Etsy link too.

Then I had to go back to town to deliver a package and found my giveaway winning earrings from jiorji at NearlyLost
here's her fb link

They seem to have the same aesthetic about them coincidently don't you think?

Being born in Maine and living in Alaska I consider Canadians my dearest nearest neighbors and I can truthfully say I have never met a Canadian I didn't like and if the ones that I actually haven't met are sending me gifts.......!


  1. thanks for the shoutout!
    you're right! they do have the same aesthetics! that's so strange haha
    that's a lovely bead..and i'm really hoping to visit Maine one day :D

  2. Those earrings are awesome and totally in the same mood as my weirdo bead. The Canadians love you too! -- Julie

  3. I think the two gift are wonderful. You are one lucky person !
    Every time I have visited Canada I have had the very best time. The country and people are lovely.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Cool beans, umm beads. As someone who is part Canadian(two grandparents), I wholeheartedly agree. xox
