Beads and Links…

Blog stuff

I’ve been going through magazines, picking out which ones to take back with me.  I came across this yummy bunch of beads—I think they’re from Italy.  I especially like the scrunchy one where the fabric has text on it.   Rocker is sitting next to me in his Sherpa bag here on the floor.  He’s being so patient…anything for a treat is his motto at this point.  I heard yesterday that his paperwork is ready, so I have to go out and get it next.  Fingers crossed.
