We had some unseasonably warm weather yesterday with blue skies! The snow melted away from our back porch so I was able to take some photos outside again, yay! I pulled out my Trollbeads copper bangle and after sitting in some ketchup for a few minutes it was ready to go. Even though I keep it in a sealed bag it had become dark and tarnished, but shined up really well in the ketchup! I used some colourful Pandora beads, including the orange one that I bought at the airport in Bali.

The silver Frangipanis Forever by Redbalifrog (and all these silver beads are Redbalifrog) remind me of the Frangipanis that are all over the island.

The Bali Mask resembles the ornate carvings that are everywhere you look in Ubud.

The choice to use the Bali Hut is fairly obvious.

And I used the Pomegranate as we ate fresh fruit every morning at breakfast.

Buying beads while on holiday is such a great way to remember a trip. What’s been your favourite travel bead purchase?
