Russ Troll Bead: on the go

June 30, 2009

We’ve featured Rings & Things’ mascot, Russ “the troll” Bead, in this space.  Here’s an update…

Russ the bead has been very busy.  A recent spate of sightings has been reported to Rings & Things. In fact, so many people have been sharing their photos of him that we’ve started a Russ bead Flickr group.  Here are just a few highlights.

Like a true woodland creature, Russ sometimes hangs around toadstools…

It’s a small, small world, so he keeps running into fellow travelers…

Of course, travel is not without its perils…

But our hero always seems to get back to domestic safety…and domestic animals:
