Bead & Jewelry Linky Love

Well, I meant to show this off last week, but circumstances intervened (H. and I are finally starting to feel more human and the Short One never did contract our sneezy, drippy cold, yay). I did NOT make this, I hasten to say. I placed a custom order with FELT86, who does wonderful things with, well, felt. Each of the little decorations is detachable, so the SO can decorate his own birthday cake to his heart's content. The SO, who loves to bake, adores this toy. I can't tell you how many cakes we've been making. Except for the fact that H. would kill me, I'd be so tempted to order her sushi set next.

Due to the aforementioned sneezy, drippy cold, you probably noticed that I failed to make any interesting observations about beads this week. Sigh. However, fear not - you can get your beady fix by following the links below to the usual, talented suspects: Jewelry Making
