    You’re right, Mary — these beads aren’t ugly, but those old shag carpets sure were! Remember when everyone seemed to have those avocado-colored appliances, too?!?!?! 8O

    Yep–we had it in the early 70′s. Had the avocado appliances, too–or were they “harvest gold?” Great colors for this nostalgic pick.

    WE had shag carpet too. Back in the day it was the “in thing” along with harvest gold and avacodo green. I still have an adversion to those colors and beige too. You will almost never see me create anything in those tones. Did anyone out there have the “shag” hair style? Remember the hot pants and mini skirts?
