Bead & Jewelry Linky Love

I was forced (forced, I tell you) by circumstances to shop at Whole Foods this morning, and I ended up coming home with this, my all-time favorite chocolate. This is a Naga Bar by Vosges - milk chocolate, sweet Indian curry powder and coconut. Oh, how I love it so. Unfortunately, the price point makes a Lindt bar look downright cheap, so I hardly every indulge, but I decided that today would be the day.

While I sneak off to hide my stash in the pantry, here are some intriguing bead & jewelry links for you:

That place is such a mecca. When I was still single and working as a lawyer, I lived literally a block away from one - I pretty much only bought groceries there. I got so spoiled. Those days are in the past, though! Is the store in Austin still open?

I love me some chocolate. You picked out a good bar. Now I'm craving it something hard.
