Bead & Jewelry Linky Love

Here's an example of how art manifests itself in our house. Pretty much every framed item has been covered with examples of the Short One's ingenuity. These are two snowmen he made during his Mom's Morning Away program. Cute, eh?

In case you are curious, they're covering an antique map of the Brighton Pavilion, which I purchased before leaving Brighton (where I lived in the early 90s) to commemorate my time there. (Incidentally, if you find yourself along the south coast of England and have never visited the Royal Pavilion, it is well worth it. If you have never seen an image of the Pavilion and/or have never heard of it, I urge you to click on the link which will take you to the official website - I pretty much guarantee that it is not what you are expecting. Wild, no? Residents tend to take it for granted - on seasonable days, my friends and I, like so many others, would lounge on the lawn - but I still get a nostalgic feeling whenever I see the photos.)

As far as the weekly links go, I'm a day late and a dollar short (what does that phrase mean, anyway?). I sincerely apologize for being tardy. Regardless of the day, though, these links remain as intriguing as ever, so you may wish to click on them now:
