spotted, in more ways than one

Hi friends, sorry I have been away for so long!  On Friday my body decided to break out in this nasty rash that ended up spreading all over my back.  Come to find out out I have a nice little case of shingles.  Not fun I tell you.  But, antiviral meds are working wonders and I am on my way to getting rid of this nasty little disease.

In honor of the spots that are all over me, here are a few of my favorite spotted things

Hope you feel better soon, my step bro got shingles once and it doesn't look like fun! :(

Someday, I will be the proud owner of a spotted scarf AND a spotted pillow! Even if I have to DIY it. The latter, not the former ;-)

I just finished wrapping up a gift in spotted paper!
Sorry to hear you have spots....my very own Mother has the same spots, not fun spots or a good spot to be in.
Take care of yourself.
