There are beads, and then there are beads!

I let my daughter do the beading...
I prefer knitting and sewing.

...but speaking of beads...
Here's a beading tradition from
my hometown,
New Orleans.

Some of the throws from the Mardi Gras floats
just don't make it into those waiting hands!

(The Sunday Creative prompt: tradition)
