Bead & Jewelry Linky Love


Here's another of the Short One's abstract masterpieces. To be perfectly honest, I'm not exactly sure this is right side up - but don't tell the SO I said so.

Unfortunately, we are all a bit under the weather here. After a short fever earlier this week, the SO started developing a nasty cough Friday night and has passed on whatever ails him to both of us. 'Tis the season, eh? It's the only part of this time of year that I don't like (read previous post for things I do).

Still, even a bad cold shouldn't keep us from our beads, right? Here are your intriguing bead and jewelry links for the week:

I've read in so many other blogs how they are or have been sick.
I'm dreading the flu outbreak here, don't want, don't want, no!
Hope you all get well soon.
