Bead and Jewelry Link Love

This installation piece is "Falling Leaves" by the Short One, B.M.M. ("Big Mess Maker"). Jangles fans may recognize the bright lime green tissue paper. I'm sorry to say the SO turned right around and came down with another nasty cold a couple days ago, which I promptly caught from him. The Husband is creeping around the house trying not to come in too close contact with us right now. Hope your weekend was a little healthier than ours!

Sorry to hear you are under the weather! I hope you and the SO are feeling better soon. :)

N has his pottery class today. He made two bowls on the wheel last week. So far he's loving the class!

Thanks, Christina. SO is still coughing, but I seem to have a much milder case and am on the mend. I'd like him to get better so I can whisk him off for his flu shot - kind of ironic, when you think about it. Hooray! I'm glad N. loves the class.

Sorry to hear you don't feel well -it's that time of year. Hope you feel better soon. Thanks for all the great links! I read Jean's blog periodically.

Thanks, Stephanie! If I can get some sleep this weekend, I hope to get over this. Really, it's just a nuisance. Glad you like the links!
