Hi Dawn. I love "bee" stuff. I actually am hoping to purchase a beehive (with bees, of course) soon! It's funny because I just changed the look of my blog last night with a bee theme. I have a wonderful antique brown transferware dish with a bee that I think I'll go take a pic of now and post it as well. Have a great day! Susie

Cute! I made one from a food dome I got at Ikea. It took a ton of time to stitch the rope onto it. Yours looks much easier!!

I had a large, decorative one in my garden lat year- the wasps moved right in. I had to throw it away after it got cold enough for them to die off!! I have some small, silver bee beads, probably only 1/4 inch, if you think you could use them. xoxo
