Love to Lisalu Jewels, LMAJ and Links!

I've been weighed under with illness and work this past week, Dear Readers. I've been catching up with my to do list and reading some of my favorite blogs. I clicked over to LMAJ late Saturday to check out their designer of the week and this is what I was greeted with....

Thanks for sharing my necklace on your blog Cindy! When I saw that heart pendant on your blog I just had to have it. It's so gorgeous! It worked perfectly with LMAJ's color palette this month. That heart is a spectacular focal!
