Beads…and more beads

Posted by jerry on May 10th, 2007 — Posted in Journal, Travel

I’ll leave the quirkies for the moment because I made a discovery. Exploring the larger mall at Tysons Corner Center 1 in Washington DC I took a fairly random turn looking for a place to get some food.

It was a bit of a culdesac and I was about to turn back when I saw what looked like a confectionery store – and it was – of an altogether different kind.

Beadazzled bead shop

The place was called ‘Beadazzled’. Yes, a bead shop – a laaarge bead shop!

So naturally I had to do a reccy for Sharon and, well, perhaps the place had reasonable prices too.


Suffice to say – it’s a surprise (so don’t tell her) I’ll let her open the package when I get home 🙂

That is the ultimate torture. You are a cruel man. (But probably nice underneath)

What is even worse – you didn’t show us any close-ups of the stock!

I agree with Chloe that we need a close-up but what a wonderful DH to surprise Sharon with this fantastic gift. Is this why there is No close-up?

Hehe! Thanks for the lovely comments 🙂
… and yes the specific gift is a surprise. I also thought it would be rude of me to take photos of the stock inside the store. They do have a website that I was assured was in the process of being updated.

Jerry, you are a sweet husband!! Also a great traveller…I grew up just north of Washington D.C. and worked downtown for over twenty years. I’m deliriously happy in Texas w/DH, but I confess I miss the flavor of D.C. I can’t believe you found the only diner around! I used to love to go there and to visit the Smithsonian on weekends w/my DD. I hope you have/have had a wonderful, wonderful trip!!

Thank you Sarah 🙂
Yes I’ve had a wonderful visit so far. The people have been so friendly and the weather is perfect. You have a great resource in the Smithsonian – it’s a real treasure.

[…] Since when did a blog become an instrument of torture. Go and have a look at what Jerry has on his blog. It is a very cruel thing to do to me. I am sure you all sympathise. […]

[…] Time is my problem. I am still in the writing phase of my online course Sumptuous Surfaces which starts on July 11th. But as you might have read last week Jerry was torturing me (if you want the back story it is here ) […]
