Links and such…


Wooo, I love a man in beads!  What is it with me and these random mannequin pictures?!?  We made it to Hong Kong yesterday.  After our errands, we spent the day goofing off.  We shopped for clothes, went to the book store, and had time to spare before catching the 6 o’clock ferry so we headed for Hollywood Rd, an excellent little street that has fine art galleries and antiques.  I ended up with some great kitsch—mahjong tile bracelets, coins and old postcards for my Ch!na photo album cover.  It was such a fun day, I didn’t want to come home…except to see Rocker.

Here’s some faboo Linkoos from the bead bloggers.  Enjoy! Jewelry Making
