Bead & Jewelry Linky Love
Here's a little summer color to inspire you - beans from our (H's) garden. These were actually picked yesterday, but they are still darn fresh compared to what I find at our local grocers. Meanwhile the tassels on our corn have opened - we did not have time to go out and pollinate by hand, so we are just hoping that we will get a few ears out of it - this is our first attempt to grow corn in the garden.
I hope everyone is having a good weekend. I'm finishing up a project for a book today and reviewing a few contracts - trying to take care of business. Here are your bead and jewelry links for the week. Thanks for visiting!
