Every Saturday it is all about the links and starting today I have decided to spice those links up a bit. I am of course still swapping links with the bead blogging beauties, but I am adding 5 links weekly of random goodness I have found on the internet. The links might be about Naughty Secretary Club, fashion, crafts – who knows the point is it is totally random. Just a link to an article or blog that tickled my fancy and I thought you might like as well. Let’s start with the usual….

Next up the links to fun things I found on the internet this week that I thought you might like…
APARTMENT THERAPY – Sure I know most of you are probably familiar with this Apartment Therapy, it is a biggie in the interior design world. This week my sister casually throws out that her Fruit Head Dead Rapper series was featured on the blog late last year.
FASHIONTRIBES – Did you hear the rumor that giant jewelry is the must have accessory for spring and summer? Well Fashiontribes agrees and then even thought that a pair of Naughty Secretary Club Judy Earrings fit the bill perfectly.
BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS – I am in love with this blog and their DIY Marc Jacobs Lego belt project just solidified this love.
AUSTINIST – The Austinist reported that Google Maps now has pictures of Austin. It is kind of creepy yet amazing to look up your house. Chris and I decided that one of us was gone because our red pathfinder was not there. It was Monday because the trashcan was in front of the house and empty. It was also mid November because there are a ton of boxes in my yard from Stitch.
TREND HUNTER – Where were these Abraham Lincoln tattoos for your teeth on Trend Hunter during Stitch 2007? They would have matched the girls glittery president dresses perfectly.
